UE Systems’ 4Cast is a smart alert system that records data and sounds continuously, issues alarms and sends data and sound samples to DMS software for analysis and reporting. Data along with sound samples can be reviewed and analyzed to determine the condition of a bearing just before, during and after a change in alarm status. This provides important information to help understand what happened and when it happened.
Permanently installed transducers continuously monitor bearing condition 24 hours a day, seven days a week, according to the company. All data is stored locally. Should a change in condition occur and a pre-established alarm level is entered, the system, via the plant’s Ethernet will issue an alarm notification, enter data and sound samples into UE DMS data management system until the alarm condition has been reversed.
