Using NI InsightCM Enterprise for Condition Monitoring Course

InsightCM is an application software that allows reliability and maintenance professionals to remotely collect and view asset health data, assess maintenance risks, and connect to enterprise or IoT software. The InsightCM VILT course provides training on how to set up and configure Condition Monitoring Systems, configure and manage alarms, and visualize and analyze system data. 

 

This project is a content update to the InsightCM 2017 VILT course, where the content and visuals are updated from InsightCM 3.2.x  to InsightCM 3.6.x. The content updates include the addition of support for wireless sensors and monitoring devices, using data sources for speed references, supporting 9047, 9055, 9058 cRIO, and minor changes to user interfaces. New content also includes a section covering the setup, installation, and maintenance of an InsightCM server.
