EPS have recently completed the installation of 7 'Sensonics' vibration racks with 22 x G3 cards communicating over a Modbus gateway across 5 crude oil export pumps on a North Sea installation.

The data is collected on an industrial PC using a HMI interface by Wonderware to provide long term data collection/trending.

This HMI was repeated in the central control room to allow the operator a full insight into the status of the plant and fault investigation as required. The previous CML system was no longer supported and was very unreliable.

We were very pleased to hear that within the first 3 months operation, the customer reported a saving of over 10 plant trips.

The work was completed in house and installed to the customer's tight timescale.
