Realtime alarm verification for speed-monitoring systems

By Chemical Engineering |

The SpeedMaster with Pulse Pilot (photo) is a device that provides independent, realtime verification of an entire speed-monitoring system to ensure that alarms and shutdowns are working as expected. The SpeedMaster operates in two modes: input mode provides the device with the machine’s actual running speed; and output mode allows the device to test the speed switch at set underspeed trip points for realtime verification of the monitoring system’s alarm and shutdown functions. There is no need to remove the sensor from the machine shaft or change any system connections in order to use the device, allowing personnel to test speed switches during periodic inspection schedules, and help the facility fully comply with insurance audits. The latest version incorporates a new ergonomic housing and a display that uses less battery power, and is bright enough for viewing in sunny conditions. — 4B Components Ltd., Morton, Ill.
