Vigilant can be Configured to Monitor any Critical Asset

Vigilant is a data-gathering pod with a lot of flexibility. Input any combination of eight ultrasonic and vibration sensors for continuous asset feedback.

Temperature, pressure and tachometer all have four channels, making this an all-in-one solution for important and guarded assets.

Vigilant Highlights

  • Four channels (Temp/Tach/Process)
  • Trends/Spectrum/Waveform/Waterfall
  • Eight channels (Ultrasound or Vibration)
  • Static and Dynamic data
  • Embedded data management software
  • Open communications protocol

Designed for CONMONSense

Vigilant receives data from different sensors, including SDT’s CONMONSense Sensors built for repeatability in any industrial setting.

Configuration

Vigilant comes with a web interface that enables users to customize all of the monitoring functions and system options on the devices.

Alarm Log

Users may access the “Alarm Log” from any desktop, which displays any events or abnormalities identified on the monitored system in real-time.

Widgets

Static trend charts, dynamic time waveform displays and spectrum analysis are all available as widgets.

Layouts

Users can create personalized desktop layouts by positioning, resizing and arranging widgets.

Dashboard

The Vigilant’s real-time measurements are seen on the Dashboard which displays the unit’s stored historical data.

Applications

  • Condition of connectors on essential assets in restricted access areas
  • Partial discharge detection in electrical devices like switchgear cabinets and MCC panels
  • Friction or impact identification in linear motion applications
  • Keep an eye on assets that need to be protected, like CNC machine centers or robots
  • Detection of cavitation-induced turbulence in pumps and valves
  • Rolling element bearing defects are identified early (majorly in slow-speed applications)
  • Valves that are considered to be crucial to a process
  • Roller bearing lubrication status
  • Hydro-cyclones employed in mining activities are detected
