Rexnord launches large gear drive monitoring system

US-based Rexnord Process and Motion Control has launched a smart condition monitoring system that monitors oil quality, temperature and vibrations in large gear drives.

Rexnord said the 1030 model, which can be installed on 100 HP or larger motor with an oil port 3/4" or greater, can increase safety and lower maintenance costs through demand-based oil changes.

The system uses proprietary algorithms to allow continuous monitoring, with sensor data constantly compared against models of healthy gear drive operating conditions. Abnormal conditions trigger automated alerts to onsite Andon lights, the PLC control system, and the Rexnord Connect Portal.

"The 1030 is the only universal large gear drive solution with oil quality, temperature and vibration monitoring capabilities," said Dan Plach, Rexnord PMC director of digital solutions.

"With smart condition monitoring systems in place, the number of hands-on equipment inspections can be reduced, lessening the burden on end users. This is especially important for sites located in harsh environments and areas where equipment is not easily accessible."
