Yokogawa releases wireless vibration sensor
February 2017, Industrial Wireless


Yokogawa has announced its ISA100 wireless-based field vibration sensor with quick update data ability and a long battery life. By providing real-time updates on vibration levels in plant facilities, this sensor helps users detect equipment anomalies and enables predictive maintenance.

With a field wireless system, plant field devices and analysers are able to communicate wirelessly with host-level monitoring and control systems. The rising need to improve productivity and enhance safety by collecting more data on plant operations is driving the demand for field wireless devices, which can be installed even in difficult to access locations. Field wireless devices have the added advantage of reducing installation costs.

Vibration sensors are useful for the condition monitoring and predictive maintenance of plant machinery such as compressors, pumps, and motors. Conventional methods for monitoring vibration include the use of vibration sensors that rely on wired communications with a host system, and patrols by maintenance staff to collect vibration data. With the widening use of field wireless systems and the need to reduce installation costs, there is an increasing demand for wireless vibration sensors. This new vibration meets the customer need for a device that can provide the quick updates on vibration levels needed to detect anomalies at an early stage.

Product features

The principal components of this field wireless vibration sensor are the FN510 field wireless multifunction module, the LN01 piezoelectric type acceleration sensor, and the FN110 field wireless communication module. Via a gateway device, the FN510 uses the ISA100 wireless communications protocol to exchange data with a host-level system such as a DCS. The data collected with this vibration sensor enables plant operators and maintenance staff to monitor vibration levels in real time. Both explosion proof and non-explosion proof types are available.

Key features of this sensor are as follows:

• Fast data updates: the sensor can be set to update data as quickly as every 10 seconds. This update time is ideal for monitoring vibration levels in plant facilities.

• Long battery life and easy maintenance: when the vibration sensor is set to update data once per minute, it can operate on a single set of batteries for up to 10 years. In addition to eliminating the cost of providing replacement batteries, this reduces maintenance workload.

• Highly reliable and versatile system: thanks to the features of ISA100 and in-house technical know-how, Yokogawa has achieved a highly reliable wireless network with fully redundant communications that is capable of sending and receiving different types of sensor signals over long distances.
