Packing in ONEPROD’s 30 years of experience in the condition monitoring of rotating equipment, FALCON is an innovative tool for vibration measurement and analysis that puts condition-based maintenance within the grasp of all users.
FALCON packs in innovative features never previously seen in a single device:
FALCON allows making immediate use of the benefits of condition based maintenance: the Accurex™ automatic diagnostic works instantly based on the first measurement. Faults detected are available right in front of the machine such enabling interaction with the user (bearing lubrication, temperature control…) and optimization of the maintenance process.
Based on the ISO 10816 standard and on ONEPROD 30+ years of experience, FALCON’s built-in automatic diagnostic module provides unbeatably relevant and reliable results. Clearly identified, machines are presented with an overall risk assessment indicator to help the user prioritize his analysis on critical machines. Every fault detected is displayed with its severity, location on the machine, and confidence level (patent pending).
FALCON is within everyone’s grasp. What was once tedious is now a real child’s play, as configuration is carried out by providing a simple machine description of the machine’s kinematics via a built-in visual interface. Any rotating asset can now be setup within less than 2 minutes. All vibration measurement needed are there: ISO 10816 velocity, overall acceleration, ONEPROD bearing Defect Factor™, high resolution FFT and time waveform, and adding customized parameters can be done in only few clicks and on the whole database. Building a database has never been so easy!
The wireless three-axis sensor and real-time processing capabilities literally cut times of vibration measurements: 8 seconds per bearing typical for measuring all X Y and Z directions with the highest quality set of vibration data. With the use of pictures, the machine identification among a route has never been so easy: the user navigates on FALCON’s large colorful touchscreen from the top view of the plant to the sensor position picture on the machine.
FALCON reduces the time and costs needed for on-site intervention to the absolute minimum. At the scale of a plant, FALCON really stands out.
FALCON was designed for uncompromised industrial use in the harshest settings:
FALCON comes with a large color touch screen, which can even be used with safety gloves, a rubber grip for better handling and anti-shock resistance. The lack of cable makes the user working in safe condition, within a range of 10 to 20m between the wireless sensor and the unit: measurements can be done under protective casings or behind doors, and the user no longer has to stay close to the machine in hot environments.
FALCON incorporates all modes of communication:
The FALCON collection and vibration analysis tool communicates data to the condition based maintenance platform equipped with the powerful NEST software, so that the data can be stored, analyzed, and reports automatically published.
