We are pleased to announce our new partnership with PCH Engineering A/S, a Danish production company specializing in machine condition monitoring solutions. PDM is now the Canadian partner for the PCH Modular System and vibration monitoring products.
A scalable approach to condition monitoring
PCH Engineering A/S has developed a scalable approach to condition monitoring called the “PCH Link Concept”. This is a modular vibration and process condition monitoring system centered around the advanced PCH 1420 Vibration Monitor. The PCH 1420 is a powerful 4-channel vibration monitor capable of onboard processing of the dynamic vibration signals, capturing and recording both time domain and frequency domain data. The inclusion of a speed input and a flexible process input means correlating the vibration data to key operating conditions, such as speed, temperature and load, is built into the system.
The system was designed with the intention of making the vibration and process data accessible to all plant personnel, including Operations, Production, Maintenance, and Management without requiring servers or Cloud access, however, there is Cloud-based software available if needed. Understanding the data is intuitive and does not require personnel to be trained vibration analysts.
With the “PCH Link Concept”, you can combine any number of PCH 1420 monitors and additional modules, such as the PCH Input Box, for a monitoring solution customized to your requirements. You only pay for the functionality you need, and you can expand the solution as required. If more sensors or process inputs are required, this can easily be achieved by adding modules. Simple, practical, and cost-effective.
PCH Engineering A/S Continuous Machine Health Monitoring
In the Link Concept system, you will also find the PCH Etherbridge module. This module enables your monitoring solution to communicate with a cloud database, giving you LAN / remote access to your vibration monitoring data. In other words, with PCH Link Concept you get a cost-effective, IIoT-compatible vibration monitoring solution to support your overall condition monitoring program or predictive maintenance strategy.
PDM Technologies is committed to providing the best solutions to help companies monitor, manage, and optimize their machinery health. The addition of PCH Engineering to our portfolio of solutions greatly enhances our ability to do this.
