DIGIVIBE SET UP

Learn how to set up your Phantom System. In the configuration window,
select preferences and go to the phantom tab, there, you must activate the option to show the phantom menu, select Ok to save the changes. 
 
 
The Phantom Configuration Wizard screen will open in a new window. In this window you will see several options. Click on "Add Phantom".

Add Phantom

Manually 

It is possible to add a phantom device by entering the sensor code. Select the Manually button. The code window will open, enter the phantom 11-ID phantom code from the sensor QR tag (2-digit sensor model code + 9-digit sensor serial number) and select Ok.  The sensor will appear in the added phantom's section.

Scanning the QR code

(Requires a tablet, laptop or PC camera):

Select the scan code button: Choose the camera from the list, position the QR label in front of the camera - place it centered and close so that it is easy to read. The code will be captured automatically and the scan window will close. The Phantom will have been added.

Configure and name.

The phantom configuration window allows us to organize our sensors for easy identification:

We can organize our devices with the following tools:

  • In group we can add the phantom to a previously created group or create a new group.
  • In name we can name our device to simplify its identification.
  • In description we choose the type of sensor we are using.
  • Finally, the Data Send Interval sets the sensor collection interval. The minimum value for data collection is 10 minutes and the maximum is 1,440 minutes (1 day), with the exception of the ATEX-certified Phantom, where the minimum is 1440 minutes.

When finished, select next.

Asigne device

In the channel assignment window, we can select an analysis point on a machine where to add our phantom device, we can only add one sensor to one point:

Alarm and channel configuration

In the next window, we have two sections, "axis configuration" and "alarms".

  • In Axis configuration,we choose a value for each axis of the phantom sensor, we can select horizontal, vertical and axial from the list.
  • In alarms we can set a preset RMS and temperature threshold. If the alarm value is exceeded, the sensor will wake up immediately and make an unscheduled measurement.

Completing the configuration

Finally, the wizard gives us the option to add another phantom device to our database, also with the previous button we can go back and make corrections to the newly added phantom. If there are no more changes select finish. You can cancel the changes and settings by closing the wizard or by selecting cancel.

Step 4 of 4:

Place the Phantom on your machine

Choose a Phantom from the list to learn more and find out how to install your Phantom System

To achieve the correct vibration analysis it is crucial to know how the sensor is placed in the machine. The vibration sensor contains a triaxial accelerometer that measures vibration in three axes at the same time. The sensor also has an engraving on its front face that indicates the position of these axes. It is important to define the position of the sensor before its configuration in DigivibeMX®.

The image below shows a Vibration Phantom Sensor placed in a three-phase motor. We can also see that the Z axis is parallel to the motor shaft; the Y axis corresponds to the vertical axis, and the X axis is orthogonal to the other two and corresponds to the horizontal axis of the motor. This means that in DigivibeMX® we should use the following configuration: H for the X axis, V for the Y axis and A for the Z axis.

Another possible configuration would be to place the sensor in a plane transverse to the machine shaft. For this configuration the values to be used should be as follows: H for the Y-axis, V for the X-axis and A for the Z-axis.

 
 
All Phantom Modules have two spaces inside their flaps to be screwed directly to your machine, to a metal plate or to a wall inside near the Gateway.
