The Kongsberg HSIO-100-[x] is available in two variants, -A and -B. The high-speed
acquisition module has outstanding signal processing and measurement capability making it very suitable for Condition Monitoring. The module has 8 analog inputs and 4 digital I/O and can easily be extended to multiple synchronous channels via the high-speed internal bus.
The B-variant is very suitable for all kind of rotating equipment. High accuracy and
dynamic range over a wide temperature area gives high quality data from accelerometers, dynamic pressure sensors and sensors used for measuring electrical
current and voltage. Raw data will be sent to databases for storage, trending and pre-processing. Enveloping and other analysis techniques help to identify status or faults of critical parameters of the machinery. Based on this information the user can plan the maintenance tasks of the equipment such as replacing worn-out components beforethey fail. This has the potential to save the owner significant amounts of work and money.
The A-variant is suitable for acoustic emission sensors. High accuracy and dynamic range over a wide temperature area gives high quality data. Raw data can be sent to databases for storage, trending and pre-processing. Hit count and other feature extraction parameters together with signal analysis help to identify status or faults of critical parameters of the machinery.
Principle of operation
The module is based upon an Altera Cyclon V processor with FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) technology. The FPGA enables parallel and high-speed data analysis of the raw data on several channels simultaneously. The module provides high- speed communication via Ethernet to analysis software.
