In order to keep it’s analysis tools updated and improve the usability of the Web Platform, Dynamox has just released some new features. Check out the main features of the newest version below:
- New analysis Tool: Cepstrum Graph
- Optimization of Spectral Alerts per band
- Spectral A2 Alerts included in "Subscriber" profile notifications
- New DMA columns
- Updates on the route report
- Updates on the route manager
- New failure modes on "Rolls" type checklists
NEW USER REGISTRATION
The way that new users are invited to the DynaPredict platform was redesigned, aiming to enable the process to be done entirely by the client. From now on, users with an “Administrator” profile can invite new users to their workspace using the asset tree. When selecting the +User, a menu will be shown asking for the credentials and the desired permission for the new user.
Right after saving, the recently invited users will receive the “NEW” status, next to their email addresses. During the next 24 hours, the user will have the “INVITATION SENT” status, indicating that the invitation was sent but not confirmed yet. If within this period the invitation is not accepted by the user, the status is changed to “EXPIRED INVITATION”, allowing the invitation to be resent through the side icon.
After being invited via the Platform, users receive an email notifying them of the registration, including information about the workspace that they’ll have access to, as well as which user made the invitation. In the email, the user has to select the “COMPLETE YOUR REGISTRATION” option to define a password and get access to all DynaPredict functionalities.
NEW ANALYSIS TOOL: CEPSTRUM GRAPH
Aiming to improve its range of analysis tools, the Web Platform has just received an update which introduces a new visualization for spectral analysis, the Cepstrum graph. This tool is available for all setups of spectral collections.
The utilization of the tool features mainly for the failure modes on gearboxes, where sideband peaks are not evident in the common spectrum, but identifiable on the frequency (1/s) domain from the frequency transformation in the spectral analysis.
All of the tools from the common spectral analysis are also available on the Cepstrum graph, such as single cursors, harmonic/sidebands, custom frequency markers, bearing markers, filters, etc. Furthermore, it is also possible now to generate Cepstrums Waterfalls, similar to the Spectral Waterfall already available on the Web Platform.
OPTIMIZATION OF SPECTRAL ALERTS PER BAND
Spectral alerts per band already implemented in older updates have been redesigned, aiming for better usability for the user. The functionalities below have received significant changes, as follows:
- Spectral Trend: The lines which identify the spectral alerts were highlighted for every type of graph, considering the configured metric and its respective band.
- Spot and Machine Viewer: In case of an alert trigger, a custom event is generated on the timeline showing the related information in the same format as the spectral analysis icons. As the alert is triggered by a spectral analysis, its icon color will change according to the alarm criticality (OK, A1 or A2).
SPECTRAL A2 ALERTS INCLUDED IN “SUBSCRIBER” PROFILE NOTIFICATIONS
Users with a “Subscriber” profile receive A2 alerts directly into their email. The spectral alerts (per band) have been introduced to this package and, in case of an event, the message content will bring information related to:
- Monitoring point (Spot);
- Alert type triggered (continuous or spectral);
- Measured value.
NEW DMA COLUMNS
New visualization columns have been added to the DMA, aiming to indicate information about the data synchronization. Now, the Synchronization field can be divided between three options:
- Última: time since last data collected for the Spot, continuous or spectral.
- Coleta: time since last continuous data collected for the Spot;
- Espectral: time since last spectral analysis collected for the Spot.
On the scope of DMA indicators, three new columns were introduced referring to the severity percentage of the collections performed.
- Vel. % of A2: percentage difference of the average velocity value (mm/s) on the last day of collections compared to the previously set A2 level;
- Temp. % of A2: percentage difference of the average temperature value (ºC) on the last day of collections compared to the previously set A2 level;
- Acel. % of A2: percentage difference of the average acceleration value (g) on the last day of collections compared to the previously set A2 level;
It’s important to note that the functionality takes the setting parameter called Spot operation levels into consideration. This parameter is responsible to define the levels that, in case of values lower than this reference, the Web Platform will understand as a non-operating machine. To configure this parameter, the user must access the Spot Center as follows:
The user must fill in the fields:
- Metric: Which available metric will be used to define the operation levels;
- Monitored Axes: Reference axes to define the operation levels;
- Minimum Operation Threshold: Reference operating value in mm/s for velocity or g for acceleration. Any collection of continuous values lower than this reference level will be considered a non-operating machine (turned off);
- Maximum Stress Threshold: Reference operating value in mm/s for velocity or g for acceleration. Any collection of continuous values higher than this reference will be considered a machine working on a stress regime.
NOTE: Percentage values will only be calculated at monitoring points whose alarms and Spot operation levels have been previously defined. The percentage value for temperature follows the same rule defined for one of the vibration parameters: velocity or acceleration.
UPDATES ON THE ROUTE REPORT
The Route Report page on the Web Platform has received punctual changes aiming to ease the data visualization. The User column has been included, making it easier to identify which user was responsible for the checklist answer, which is particularly useful when there is a change of inspector during an active route.
Furthermore, the data selection box, already available in other Platform pages, was added, enabling the user to navigate between the cycles without leaving the route screen.
UPDATES ON THE ROUTE MANAGER
The Route Manager on the Web Platform was redesigned to show more detailed information regarding the inspection route. Now, the user can view information about: cycle status (in progress or closed), start date, ideal moment and end date, user assigned to it and creation date.
The update consists in easing the analysis and identification of which routes are currently in progress, as well as what are the ideal moments and execution tolerances of them. The In progress icon refers to those that are available for completion on the current date, while the Closed icon indicates that the route is not available to be completed at the moment.
NEW FAILURE MODES ON “ROLLS” TYPE CHECKLIST
New failure modes for rollers and idlers were added on the “Rolls” checklist type. For the rollers, the following failure modes were added:
- Loose coating (when applicable);
- Irregular coating (when applicable);
- Accumulation of material.
For the idlers, the following failure modes were implemented:
- Vibration (self-aligning);
- Accumulation of material.
