Overview

NI Monitoring Devices, such as Condition Monitoring Systems (CMS) and Motor Current Signature Analysis (MCSA) systems, are NI CompactRIO-based systems that are composed the following hardware and software components: CompactRIO controller, NI C Series I/O modules installed in the chassis, and NI InsightCM Device software application image. NI InsightCM supports a sub-set of the CompactRIO hardware platform when using the standard product. This document details the supported hardware for the standard product. Additional CompactRIO hardware support can be added using the NI InsightCM SDK.

1. Controllers

NI Monitoring Devices run NI InsightCM device software, referred to as application images. Each device type has a specific application image, and application images cause the device to perform operations such as acquiring data, collecting files, and communicating with NI InsightCM Server. The application image names refer to the device type and are used in this document to indicate the target monitoring type.

2. Vibration and General Condition Monitoring Modules

The CMS-9047, CMS-9036, CMS-9058, CMS-9055, CMS-9068, and CMS-9065 are general purpose condition monitoring devices.


The CMS-9047 and CMS-9036 are the high-performance device options. They only supports dynamic signal acquisition (DSA) modules in all 8 slots, and requires that module slots 1 and 2 are filled. Module 1 must use a NI-9232 for tachometer reading, and modules slots 2-8 can be either NI-9232 or NI-9230. The CMS-9036 (IEPE Disabled) is a variant image of the CMS-9036 that disables IEPE on all channels. The CMS-9036 (IEPE Disabled) and CMS-9047 (IEPE Disabled) supports the NI-9229 in module slots 2-8.


The CMS-9058, CMS-9055, CMS-9068, and CMS-9065 are the standard CMS devices. These devices support DSA modules for waveform acquisition and single-point, static modules for process, static, and digital inputs. The module configuration for these devices require specific module layouts in the chassis. Refer to the Device and Software Types Help topic for more information. See Frequently Asked Questions about Sample Rates and Durations for more information about single point, static module acquisition.

3. MCSA Modules

The MMS-9058, MMS-9055, MMS-9068, and MMS-9065 are the motor current signature analysis devices. These devices offer monitoring of multiple two-phase or three-phase AC induction electric motors on a single voltage bus using MCSA. Both device types are functionally equivalent but differ in the number of slots available for C Series modules (MMS-9068 has 8 slots, and MMS-9065 has 4 slots). The MCSA devices require that module slots 1 and 2 are filled. Module 1 must use a NI-9242 for voltage bus measurement, and other modules slots are NI 9239 for current measurement on specific motors. Module slots must be filled in ascending order, but not all slots need to be filled.

 

Module Description Sampling
NI 9242 3-channel, 250 Vrms Potential Transducer Input 5-10 kS/s/channel
NI 9239 4-channel, +/- 10 V Current Transducer Input 5-10 kS/s/channel

4. EMSA Modules

The EMSA-9055, EMSA-9068, and EMSA-9065 are the electromagnetic signature analysis devices. These devices offer monitoring of energized assets such as transformers and generators using EMSA. Both systems are functionally equivalent but differ in the number of slots available for C Series modules. Module slots must be filled in ascending order, but not all slots need to be filled. NI 9770 is used to monitor the ground wire using high frequency current transformers. Choose an appropriate number of modules to monitoring the number of assets.

 

Module Description Sampling
NI 9770 1-channel, High Frequency Current Transducer 320 kS/s, 30 kHz to 100 MHz

5. Thermal Imaging Cameras

The IR-3120 is the thermal imaging device. It offers non-invasive temperature monitoring of wide areas using thermal cameras. These systems are commonly used to monitor substations, but could also be used to monitor switchgear, breakers, and motors. Each IR-3120 supports up to two thermal cameras, and you can define multiple regions of interest to monitor for each camera.
