Spider-80X Machine Condition Monitoring System

The compact Spider-80X is designed for machine condition monitoring. Each front-end features eight analog input channels and two channels that may be software selected as tachometer inputs for the analysis of rotating machinery. The Spider-80X inputs provides absolute/differential and AC/DC/IEPE coupling choices; charge mode is an available option. The Spider-80X provides the same IEEE 1588 time sync Ethernet connectivity available on all Crystal Instruments Spider products and 4 GB flash memory for data and program storage. Multiple Spider-80X front-ends may be linked together using the (eight-into-one) Spider-HUB module and storage can be increased to 250 GB by adding a Spider-NAS mass storage module. Up to 128 channels can be configured in a Spider-80X system.

Cloud Based Remote Monitoring

EDM Cloud combined with the Spider-80X system is the ideal choice for machine condition monitoring. With EDM Cloud, the test and the test engineer can literally be oceans apart. Any of the usual EDM tests can be incorporated into a test suite, fully developed in the comfort of the office, and then sent to the Spider front-ends far away. Check measurements against a variety of criteria; tests run locally, on the Spiders. Results are available across the world, in real-time. EDM Cloud is server-based software designed to take vibration and other measurements remotely using Spider front-ends. Applications include machine conditioning monitoring, wind turbine vibration and status monitoring, bridge and railway vibration monitoring, tunnel sound monitoring and more. By opening a web browser on a tablet PC, iPad, PC or a smart phone, the user can access real time or historical data instantly.
