Motor Condition Monitoring System (MCM)

Artesis MCM is a powerful online condition monitoring and predictive maintenance tool intended for critical AC rotating equipment. The patented machine learning algorithm of MCM enables comprehensive fault detection up to 6 months in advance. Thanks to around the clock monitoring and real-time model-based voltage and current analysis, MCM can detect electrical, mechanical as well as process faults of fixed, variable speed motors and generators.

Ease of Use

Automated fault diagnosis feature of MCM makes it very simple to use by the maintenance personnel. Rather than overwhelming the end user with raw signals and data, MCM provides processed data results in an actionable form. The system requires minimal operator intervention for set-up and operation and provides clear indication of the nature and severity of developing faults both locally to the monitored equipment and remotely.

Real Time Monitoring

MCM constantly takes measurements and compares them with its reference condition, in order to assess the severity and type of any developing fault. It is able to recognize abnormalities in a wide range of operating states, and is even able to extend its self-learning process when it recognizes that it has moved beyond its original learning limits. This allows MCM to achieve very sensitive detection of faults without false alarms

Plant Condition Monitor (PCM)

Artesis PCM monitors the condition of generators and their prime movers, effectively using the generator itself as a sophisticated transducer. It uses advanced NASA-developed technology to provide automated set-up and fault diagnosis with minimal user intervention. It is simpler to use and more cost effective than conventional systems. PCM is applicable to a very wide range of equipment, including turbo alternators, diesel generators, and wind turbines, and is particularly valuable for equipment in inaccessible or hazardous environments.

Simple to Install

Installing PCM is a simple matter of connecting it to the three supply phases of the generator using simple and inexpensive transducers and mounting it in any convenient panel. It is usually located at the generator control cabinet, requiring very short cable runs and avoiding the need to install equipment in remote or hazardous areas. When first switched on, PCM carries out an automatic self-learning process during which the normal operating condition of the equipment is established. Advanced analysis techniques ensure that this training takes account of variables like speed and load, and that existing faults do not result in training errors.

Continuous Monitoring of Your Machinery

PCM constantly takes measurements and compares them with its reference condition, in order to assess the severity and type of any developing fault. It is able to recognise abnormalities in a wide range of operating states, and is even able to extend its self-learning process when it recognises that it has moved beyond its original learning limits. This allows PCM to achieve very sensitive detection of faults without false alarms.

Reliable, Automated Fault Diagnosis

When PCM detects a fault, it presents the results of its sophisticated analysis to the user in a simple, compelling traffic light display. This provides local staff with an immediate indication that a problem is developing. Detailed diagnostic information is provided by means of its standard networking facilities, and covers a very wide range of mechanical and electrical problems including imbalance, misalignment, bearing damage, gearbox faults, isolation, and many others. A relay output is also provided so that specific alarm conditions can be annunciated by visual or audible warnings, or communicated to a control system.
