The process of development of errors visible requires continuous monitoring, ie diagnostics with a period much shorter than the interval of their development and with the automatic delivery of the objective results. The main task of equipment monitoring system - defect detection, monitoring of their development and timely warning for maintenance.
COMPACS® system is invariant to vehicle structure and implements various methods of non-destructive testing (vibroacoustic, acoustic emission, electrical, ultra-audible, thermal and parametric). The system refer to expert decision support systems, i.e. it must help the staff to take reasoned decisions on the management of operation and equipment condition. The system receives signals from sensors and generates vector of orthogonal diagnostic features, including a dozen types of non-destructive testing. Vector of diagnostic features enters the processing unit of logical predicates, the results of which formed the expert system results. As a result, automatic expert system generates diagnostic requirements on the main as text messages, as well as voice alerts.
Thus, the system provides continuous monitoring of the industrial complex due to aggregation of various methods of non-destructive testing based on a single hardware and software platform which allows to diagnose the condition of the mechanical (mill, blocks, pumps, compressors, blowers, motors, etc.), technology (presses, furnaces, pipelines, storage tanks) and other equipment.
