Total plug-and-play solution for condition monitoring
1st Quarter 2018, Other technologies


The FAG SmartQB is a ready-to-use, preconfigured condition monitoring system for electric motors, fans, compressors and gearboxes. The system is ideal for industries such as cement, paper, steel and water management. Commissioning takes a mere five minutes and requires no special skills or understanding of vibration diagnosis. Clearly understood plain text messages relating to the causes of any possible defects are generated on the touch-screen display when changes occur in the condition of the equipment.

The system allows for 24/7 monitoring for maximum plant availability and is preconfigured for the capture of various anomalies, with up to six sensors. Output of five error states is possible, namely bearing damage, unbalance, friction/cavitation, temperature increases and basic variations. Additional features include a live display of current values, trend pattern and damage development, an RJ45 Ethernet interface for service technicians and static information regarding operating hours, defect frequency, maximum values and mean values since the last evaluation.

Bearings International focuses on top quality products from leading international manufacturers involved in the industrial aftermarket, OEM, manufacturing and mining sectors. “Our premium products offer our customers the best cost-to-performance ratio. They can also count on leading technical support and service,” says product manager, Coenie van Deventer. “We recognise the challenges of high energy prices, low productivity, skills shortages and a highly competitive economic environment. Our engineering and reliability divisions offer a highly flexible range of predictive, planned and breakdown maintenance services.”
