Create an operating state to set different data and tag-collection properties for specific conditions. For example, you might want to collect data from equipment more frequently when the equipment is under a heavy load than when it is idle. If you define an operating state, the Continuous Monitoring System detects the heavy-load condition and implements a different set of data-collection properties in response. This feature is also used to capture motor-start data sets (Figure 2) that are valuable to condition monitoring professionals but can be difficult to acquire due to remote locations or short-notice starts.
Figure 2. Continuous screening focuses attention on events with valuable information, such as startups, coast downs, peak usage, and so on. The image above shows the startup vibration signature of two chilled-water pumps in a building HVAC system. Capturing critical events manually is full of logistical challenges. Automatically screening and capturing these events help teams improve efficiency.
