Meggitt introduces the new VibroSight® diagnostics rule box software for the Vibro-Meter® Energy product line

February 2019: Meggitt is pleased to announce the launch of the VibroSight® diagnostics rule box software for the Vibro-Meter® Energy product line. This new diagnostics rule box software is a web-based application designed to create diagnostic rules and execute them using a background service in order to generate machinery reports that are available from a high-level dashboard. In this way, powerful, fully-automated, decision support systems can be created that support the effective monitoring of all rotating machinery.

The VibroSight® diagnostics rule box software is compatible with VibroSight® machinery monitoring systems, and any other monitoring system that supports an OPC DA interface for the export of real-time data. The diagnostics rule box applies the diagnostic rules and decision support tasks configured for an application/system to data in order to quickly and automatically provide the information required to maximize plant availability, optimise plant maintainability and help reduce costs.

The VibroSight® diagnostics rule box software must be configured with diagnostic rules specific for each project installation. Accordingly, our Customer Support group provides the knowledge and expertise to create rules for applications as a separate service; they can also provide training in order to enable customers to build and manage rules on their own. Once the diagnostic rules are configured, the software performs real-time data validation, real-time calculations and analysis, and real-time detection of specific events and malfunctions.

VibroSight® diagnostics rule box software version 1.0 is available now and is already being used by customer projects.

Note: While the VibroSight® diagnostics rule box software is 100% compatible with the VibroSight® software, they are distinct and separate products, so the VibroSight® diagnostics rule box software is installed separately and requires its own license (independent of a VibroSight software license). The VibroSight® diagnostics rule box software is a replacement for the Diagnostics rule box that was an optional software module with our legacy VM600 CMS software.
