Digital Proximity System (DPS)

June 2, 2021 | Product News

If you have a rotary machine that utilizes lube-oil rather than ball-bearings, you probably are used to using proximity probes to determine various properties of the shaft and its rotation.  For the past 40 years, almost all of the electronics drivers for the proximity / cable probe combination have been ANALOG – custom built for the specific probe type and cable length, and custom calibrated for the type of material of the rotor. 

 Metrix Vibration, who designed the first 4-20 mA vibration transmitter, now also has the first DIGITAL proximity system (DPS – either a driver or transmitter).  One DPS can be programmed on-site for axial, radial, or thrust, with almost any type of probe, any length of cable, any type of material, and the be precision calibrated to give you the most accurate measurement possible. 

Here’s a great animation showing the power of the DPS for an external mounting on a large machine case.

If you have remote assets (pumps, compressors, or wells) and need to monitor level, pressure, temperature, vibration, or other critical process values, NSI has 20 years of experience helping you access and visualize this data.  From autodialers to land-line modems to now cellular-based cloud data visualization, the options to easily see, store, and report this data has never been less expensive to put in place.  We can even help you take the cloud data and feed it into your existing SCADA system.    

Here’s a great visual example of a water treatment plant that we just helped spot a low pressure event at one of their remote wells.  The picture shows the cloud dashboard designed for the customer that is securely accessible from any mobile device or computer.
