Setpoint’s machinery health monitoring solutions

Technews Industry Guide - Maintenance, Reliability & Asset Optimisation 2015 Maintenance, Test & Measurement, Calibration

Setpoint has introduced an innovative new series of machinery protection products and services that delivers complete API670 compliance. The same raw data used to protect the asset is available for analysis through the company’s Condition Monitoring Suite, powered by OSI PI. The solution is a comprehensive online condition monitoring software solution, with direct connectivity between the PI network and the Setpoint’s machinery protection, without need of any additional intervening hardware.

In a market characterised by limited technology progress and development, Setpoint’s innovative approach to product development has produced several unique solutions, resolving the most critical of challenges for its customers. Users have responded very positively to its efforts, despite the presence of market incumbents. With its strong overall performance, Setpoint has earned Frost & Sullivan’s 2014 Customer Value Leadership Award.

The ageing architecture and components of the yester-year’s systems has led to a market that relies on near obsolescence for protection of critical assets and plant safety. The technology available today gives a window into the machines running condition for critical operational decisions, fault analysis and predictive maintenance. The Setpoint solution allows users to move on from the risks of the past, to the advantages offered by this current generation of technology.
