Machine Monitoring & Equipment Effectiveness

Posted by Advanced Controls & Distribution on Nov 1, 2017 12:00:28 PM

The worst method of operating machines is running them to a point of failure, carrying out repairs and then operating them again. This method, in addition to being overly expensive in terms of lost output is also hazardous to the workspace. Machine Monitoring can give your plant the capability to monitor, control & automate itself according to the changing requirements of the various systems. The concept is the epitome of modern industrial technology and utilized every available resource, hardware & software to ensure maximum uptime & minimum, yet scheduled maintenance.

Benefits of Bearing-free Magnetic Encoder Systems

Posted by Advanced Controls & Distribution on Oct 5, 2017 1:56:55 PM

Magnetic encoder technology is vastly used in heavy industries such as steel mills, ship drives, gas turbines, power stations, drilling rigs, and so on. The rugged landscape and threat of harsh elements require delivery of control signals over a long period of time in a reliable and efficient manner. While optical scanning encoder systems are always an option, the extreme conditions make it unsuitable for installation. Extremely confined spaces, large shaft diameters and no free shafts are just some of the reasons as to why Magnetic Encoder technology needs to be adopted.
