Condition monitoring is a rapidly developing field, made essential through the greater emphasis on machine maintenance. It is a fast growing area, which has seen the introduction of many new and highly sophisticated techniques. This book introduces the wide range of condition monitoring techniques, showing how they can be relevant and cost effective to management. It aims to provide operators with a better appreciation of the benefits of these techniques and their value in particular applications. Significantly, it features: an easy-to-read introduction to condition monitoring and maintenance, including numerous examples and illustrations a concise guide to the overall spectrum of 14 major condition monitoring types a comprehensive listing and brief descriptions of available practical variations, including their source. Condition Monitoring of Mechanical and Hydraulic Plant is the essential handbook for technical managers and maintenance personnel. It is also the ideal introduction to condition monitoring for senior undergraduates and postgraduates.The method of data acquisition adopted, however, will depend on the type of sensor which is in use. ... data (8 bit, 12 bit, 16 bit etc); ac input-output ports (RS232 , or multidrop RS485-RS422); ac parallel or serial port connections; ac analogue input levels; ac signal conditioning required. The more important, less obvious ones are described below (for further details see Keithley MetraBytea#39;s Reference Guide).
