1 AMS Machinery Manager System Architecture 1-19 .AMS Machinery Manager System Architecture AMS Machinery Manager uses a client/server architecture. The following sections describe the major components and their functions. The location of the Servers depends on whether you have a Single User or Network license. Though all of this activity runs in the background while you work. AMS Machinery Manager manages many programs and reads and writes many different kinds of data to several databases. it is helpful to understand the AMS Machinery Manager system architecture. Each AMS Machinery Manager application acts as a client communicating through servers to the various databases via the TCP/IP communications protocol.

the Database Server runs locally on your hard drive. and ensuring that the number of users who are simultaneously accessing a given resource is within the boundaries of the license. For performance reasons. If you have a Network License. This default directory may be configured using the RBMadmin application. There must be one and only one Network Administration Server that administers a license to AMS Machinery Manager. Network Administration Server The Network Administration Server performs several functions associated with the AMS Machinery Manager license. reporting on which programs are run by which users. defining the type of access. the users have to programs. Emerson recommends that a separate network license be purchased per Local Area Network instead of trying to use a single license across an entire Wide Area Network. at a given time. one user could have 250 connections or 250 different users could each have one connection to the Database Server.Database Server The Database Server manages access to all AMS Machinery Manager Databases. Each Database Server has a default database directory.

Pieces of Equipment are the next level of organization within a database. a motor. Areas Areas are the top level of organization within an AMS Machinery Manager database. 2-2 Overview of AMS Machinery Manager . A piece of Equipment is usually a working unit that consists of a driver. a pump. etc. Equipment Under Areas. Measurement Points Measurement points are locations or positions on the Equipment where the sensor is placed in order to take a measurement. and associated components (for example.Note Remember to backup your databases frequently. location. or a gearbox). a winder section.. Each Area contains a collection of Equipment that are logically grouped together based on physical or functional relationships. All measurement points on a piece of Equipment are grouped together under the piece of Equipment. or a power station). a driven unit. (for example. a paper machine.

Database Capacities The following table describes the maximum number of each type of information allowed in one database. DATABASE CATEGORY Maximum database size # of Analysis Parameter Sets # of Alarm Limit Sets Fault Frequency Sets Routes per Area Points per Route Measurement points per piece of Equipment AMS Machinery Manager Capacity 2 gigabytes 512 per Technology 512 per Technology 128 50 1040 144 2-3 .

Each frequency band is designed to contain a segment of the spectrum where specific machinery frequencies occur. etc. 2-4 Overview of AMS Machinery Manager . bearing frequencies. Note Analysis Parameter sets may be set up automatically using the RBMwizard application. In addition.Analysis Parameter Sets An analysis parameter set (APS) includes a group of individual analysis parameters that divide the frequency spectrum into bands that are individually measured and analyzed. turning speed harmonics. etc. DC-Gap.

Note For Periodic technology. However. you can have up to 12 individual Analysis Parameter bands per set. For Online technology. the eleven (11) default ultrasonic parameter sets. For Oil technology. Analysis Parameter Sets 2-5 . and one default oil parameter set that are included with AMS Machinery Manager. it is common for only a few unique parameter sets to be required–even in a large database. Note RBMwizard will create sets appropriate for equipment setup and operational conditions. you can have up to 24. Analysis Parameter sets are independent of the database hierarchy and can be assigned to many different measurement points on Equipment using one of the following methods: • Assign user-defined analysis parameter sets. • Assign from the sixteen (16) default periodic analysis parameter sets. and for Ultrasonic you can have up to 12 individual Analysis Parameter bands per set. since many measurement points can usually be analyzed in an identical manner. Note AMS Machinery Manager allows for the creation of up to 512 analysis parameter sets per database. you can have up to 96.

the eleven (11) default ultrasonic parameter sets. Oil. Any overall or parameter level that causes an alarm will be listed in the Measurement Exception Analysis Report generated by the EXPORT program module. An alarm limit set consists of an alarm level for the overall signal and separate alarm levels for each individual analysis parameter. Alarm limit sets are independent of the database hierarchy and can be assigned to many different measurement points on Equipment using one of the following methods: • Assign user-defined alarm parameter sets. Note There is no “overall signal” for the Online. • Assign from the sixteen (16) default periodic alarm parameter sets. Alarm Levels The following text describes the various alarm levels used in many of AMS Machinery Manager’s components. and one default oil parameter set that are included with AMS Machinery Manager. Note RBMwizard will create sets appropriate for equipment setup and operational conditions. Note Alarm Limit sets may be set up automatically using the RBMwizard application. 2-6 Overview of AMS Machinery Manager . and Ultrasonic components of AMS Machinery Manager.Alarm Limits Alarm limits are levels of amplitude that indicate a deteriorating condition on the piece of Equipment being monitored.

The other method establishes a level equal to the calculated mean plus (or minus) the number of Maximum Deviations (specified in the alarm limit set) times the standard deviation. Fault Level This is the most severe alarm level and indicates Equipment failure. Early Warning Alarms Early warning alarm values are statistical in nature and indicate that a measured value has significantly deviated from its typical measurement (but not necessarily exceeded an alarm limit).2 times the baseline. Weak Side Level The weak side alarm is set at a level below the normal operating amplitude (or above depending on the type of alarm). The Equipment should be evaluated in detail and monitored at shorter intervals.Note Online and Oil have different alarm level types. Alert Level This alarm level indicates that the Equipment is approaching failure. These two levels are then compared. An early warning alarm usually occurs before the alert level. Please consult them for specific information. or it can be used to test variables where both an increase or a decrease in the amplitude indicates a problem. This alarm level provides protection against improper data collection. there may be unique instances where these levels are reversed from normal. For vibrationtype signals. then setting the Baseline Ratio to1.2 will trigger the early warning alarm should this value exceed 1. and the more restrictive level is used for the early warning. Alarm Limits 2-7 . fault alarm values can usually be found in published standards for various types of equipment. however. if a measured signal is not normally expected to increase by 20% from the baseline value. One method of calculation establishes this level as equal to the Baseline Ratio (specified in the alarm limit set) times the actual baseline value. For example.

Absolute delta values are used when the vibration amplitude value (or other measured quantity such as phase readings or DC gap voltages) will be found within a wide range of values. if desired. 2-8 Overview of AMS Machinery Manager . This temporary baseline is established at a level equal to one-tenth of the fault value as an initial default value. Note When using absolute delta alarm types. therefore. Absolute Delta The last three alarm types use absolute delta–the alarm level that is derived from the baseline value plus or minus the absolute delta value. it is especially important to make sure the initial baseline value is correct. The baseline value is established from the very first measurement. Absolute values are used when the vibration amplitude value (or other measured quantity) should remain relatively constant. The values taken from the first measurement should be examined carefully to ensure that they are normal and suitable for establishing the alarm levels. and equipment degradation is based on an increase or decrease from that value.Baseline Override If the actual baseline or the calculated mean is less than one-tenth of the specified fault level value. This initial percentage of the fault value can be modified or deleted by using the Database Global Information option in DBASE. Absolute Value The first four alarm types of AMS Machinery Manager use an absolute value–the alarm level always equals this fixed value. but will not normally change significantly from measurement to measurement. the program assigns a temporary baseline in an effort to reduce false early warning alarms. there will be no alarm checking for the first measurement.

3 Alarm Limits 2-9 . Dual Upper Level The Dual Upper Level alarm type is used when the symptom of approaching failure is an increasing amplitude of the measured signal.Alarm Types There are seven types of alarms available for use in the AMS Machinery Manager database. This is the most common alarm type used for vibration analysis.

Although the Out-of-Window alarm type is the same as the Dual Upper Level alarm in AMS Machinery Manager. however. The Out-of-Window alarm type. Amplitude values below or above these two levels are considered normal. 4 Out-of-Window This alarm type uses the same configuration as the Dual Upper Level alarm. provides an indication on the machinery analyzer for the Lo alarm as protection against collecting an abnormally low measurement. Dual Upper Out of Window Fault Level = High Alarm 2 Alert Level = High Alarm 1 Alert Level = High Alarm 1 Weak Side Level = Low 2-10 Overview of AMS Machinery Manager . they are treated differently in the Model 2100 series machinery analyzer as shown below.In-Window The In-Window alarm type provides an alarm when the measured signal enters a specified amplitude range (or “window”) established by the alert and weak side levels.

such as pipe wall thickness. Dual Upper Delta This alarm type is similar to the Dual Upper Level alarm except that the alarm levels are specified in absolute delta values. i. 6 Alarm Limits 2-11 . baseline ± delta values.. 5 Note The Dual Lower Level alarm requires that the Baseline Ratio be specified at a value less than one.e.Dual Lower Level The Dual Lower Level alarm type can be used when the symptom of approaching failure is a decreasing amplitude.

Note The Dual Upper Delta. Dual Lower Delta This alarm type is similar to the Dual Lower Level alarm except that the alarm levels are specified in absolute delta values. and Dual Lower Delta alarm types cannot be used with the Model 2100 machinery analyzer. 2-12 Overview of AMS Machinery Manager . Dual Window Delta. the baseline ratio must be specified as a value less than one. 7 Note When using the Dual Lower Delta alarm type.

8 Note The early warning alarm using the baseline ratio and the weak side alarm are not used with the Dual Window Delta alarm type. Alarm Limits 2-13 . i.. baseline values ± delta values.Dual Window Delta The Dual Window Delta alarm type provides alert and fault limits above and below the normal amplitude window. This alarm type is recommended for phase and DC gap measurements.e. Alarm levels are specified in absolute delta values.

The “A” alarm code is the result of a trend analysis on each signal parameter in order to detect developing faults that may occur before data are again collected. Early warning alarm produced by the Maximum Deviations. AMS Machinery Manager reports any projection under 300 days. A measured parameter is within the range established by the In-Window alarm. Early warning alarm produced by the Baseline Ratio. If the extrapolated value of a parameter exceeds the Fault Level within a projected three-measurement point interval. AMS Machinery Manager first calculates the data trend slope and its Alarm Code. Fault Level alarm.Alarm Codes in EXPORT The following alarm codes are generated by the EXPORT program when indicating the above alarm types on the various reports: Alarm Code A Br Bs C D V W L Hi Alarm Limit The projected measured value will exceed the absolute fault level within three measurement intervals. A measured parameter is above the weak side value with a dual lower alarm type. A measured parameter is below the weak side value with a dual upper alarm type. Question marks appear for any projection over 300 days or in cases where insufficient historical data exist to establish a trend. It then projects Days To Alarm or when the Absolute Fault Level will probably occur. A measured parameter is above the maximum or below the minimum sensor validity alarm. Alert Level alarm. 2-14 Overview of AMS Machinery Manager . a type A alarm code occurs. AMS Machinery Manager uses linear extrapolation on the signal parameter values collected during the three previous months.

When AMS Machinery Manager calculates a negative slope (decreasing vibration levels). AMS Machinery Manager also shows the question marks for a flat slope (no change in vibration levels). shows 0. therefore. three question marks (???) appear for dual upper alarms.For example. Alarm Limits 2-15 . Days To Alarm. Alarm Code D means the vibration level has already reached or exceeded the Absolute Fault Level.0 days.

The overall status can be determined by looking across all of these values. Communication programs can also set explicit alarms when data is downloaded from an analyzer. it will not be setting the overall alarm status. Assignment will typically occur at the measurement point level. to a database. Analysis programs. For example. when an application such as Export sets a node’s alarm severity. such as Nspectr. the derived alarm severity will be the worst alarm from all the alarms at the Measurement Point level underneath it. 2-18 Overview of AMS Machinery Manager . After one or more alarms have been reported. equipment. area. An exception is Corrective. Note Most AMS Machinery Manager programs set explicit alarms at the Measurement Point level. For a visual representation of this hierarchy. These are broken down by technology and further by analysis type within each technology. set explicit alarms. and measurement point. Each node has a set of alarm severity values. component (on-line vibration only). it will be setting the status for a single technology and analysis type. This continues until the status of the Database level node has been updated. MotorView. Not Set alarm severity: indicates an alarm status has not been set. such as a 2120. Explicit alarm severity: an alarm that is specifically set at a given node. The roll up process looks at all of the severities for the given node and all related nodes or points underneath it. For example. at the Equipment level. which sets explicit alarms at the Equipment level. Measurement Point readings are rolled up the Equipment level. and Export. The process is then repeated at this level and rolled up to the next. Derived alarm severity: this alarm severity comes from looking at all the alarms beneath a node and selecting the worst alarm as its rating. The highest severity is rolled up to the next upper level node as its derived severity. the derived alarm severity will be the worst alarm from all the Equipment levels beneath it.Applications can assign alarm severities to the following node types: database. a “roll up” process updates the hierarchy. Rather. and the Equipment level to the Area level. For example. see “The AMS Machinery Manager Database” on page 2-1. At the Area level.

Ignore Alarm Status An additional state that may be applied to a Technology or Analysis Type at a node is “ignore. The expired icons are identical to the normal icons minus color.. the indeterminate icon is displayed. Alarm Status 2-19 . Therefore. an expiration date may also be set. etc.). The main visual indication of this is that the expired icon is used.Expiration of Alarm Status When an alarm status is set. the original status expires. read fails from DB.” Setting the ignore state will prevent a given node’s status from influencing the derived status of other nodes. you can still see the severity level by looking at the icon. A node’s status is not overwritten when it is ignored.g. Indeterminate Alarm Status If for any reason alarm status cannot be determined (e. This date will typically be calculated based on the monitoring schedule. If a new alarm status is not set prior to the expiration date.

This is caused by the compression technique used when storing the spectrum. However. If this results in an upper frequency value that falls between available frequency selections. the analyzer will default to the next higher selection for this value. Lower Freq (Hz/Order): — For CSI analyzers such as the Model 2117/2120. even for values below the low frequency cutoff level. the spectral lines below this cutoff value may not be accurate in either the analyzer or in AMS Machinery Manager. 2120 analyzers will be accurate. Note When using an order-based parameter set.Note For CSI Models 1x. this option is ignored. the analyzer multiplies the order value (specified for Upper/Lower Frequency For FFT Analysis) times the RPM that is entered during data collection.

the more time will be required. The power of each frequency line is summed and divided by the number of averages. Frequency resolution of the FFT analysis is defined as the upper frequency divided by the number of lines. A larger figure for the number of lines will result in greater frequency resolution on a plot. Emerson recommends four to 10 averages for normal vibration measurement on rotating pieces of equipment. this also increases the memory storage requirements and may require more time to take measurements.

Periodic Technology 3-53 . Order Track – (requires a tach signal) this mode collects time data as in the synchronous time averaging mode.Peak Hold – peak hold forms a composite spectra using the largest value that occurs for each line in all spectra to be averaged. Data acquisition starts at the beginning of a tach pulse. This averaging mode results in a spectrum where peaks that are integer multiples of the running speed will remain while other peaks tend to be averaged down. Number of Analysis Parameters: — specifies the number of individual analysis parameters (0 to 12) that will be included in this analysis parameter set. This parameter is normally not selected. Window Type: — (Uniform or Hanning) the Uniform choice does not apply a window to the sampled time data and is sometimes used for special applications. this variable is automatically set to zero (0). This makes the sampled RPM constant even when the equipment RPM drifts. Time – (requires a tach signal) synchronous time average mode has the effect of sampling data at the same portion of each revolution of the piece of equipment. The arithmetic average of these spectra is the order-tracked spectrum. filters the measured spectra to approximate the frequency response of the human ear. each block of time data is converted to a frequency spectrum. The spectrum of this average time data is the synchronous time averaged spectrum. When using Third-Octave Analysis. Spectral Weighting: — used for acoustic applications. An arithmetic average of the time data is first formed. This averaging mode results in a spectrum where peaks that are related to running speed will remain while other peaks tend to be averaged down. However. Synch. This option is normally not selected. data is collected only when a tachometer pulse is present. Hanning window is recommended for normal operation.

Caution! It is not good practice to change the analysis parameter set that has been assigned to a measurement point after data have been collected and stored for that point–trend data plots will exhibit unusual changes around the date that the alteration occurred. If the analysis parameter must be changed. it is recommended that the collected trend data be deleted from the database. 3-54 Database Setup/Management – DBASE . and the associated statistical values be reset to zero. before making the change.

Notes, Examples, and Tutorials
The following sections contain examples and additional descriptive information that should help you better understand how to use some of the DBASE features. Although this material should be very helpful, some of the information will only be appropriate for specific technology(s).

Alarm Limit Notes
• Be sure the Alarm Limit Set and the Analysis Parameter Set go together when defining each Measurement Point Information window. Continually evaluate the success of the signal parameters and the alarm limits as you scan data. If EXPORT repeatedly overlooks faults, revise the analysis parameter and alarm limit sets. In addition, always review these sets whenever your company overhauls, completely replaces, or changes the normal operation of any monitored pieces of equipment. • Modify Alarm Limit Sets with care. Many different measurement points and pieces of equipment may use each set. Any change that you make to one set affects all measurement points that use that set. Make a new set for a piece of equipment whose service has been modified. • If no alarm checking is desired for dynamic sensors, use Alarm Limit Set zero (0). If no alarm checking is desired for certain analysis parameters, then enter a value of zero for the fault value. If an alarm limit is not desired, enter zero for that particular limit. (If zero is an invalid value in your application, then substitute a number close to zero, such as 0.001.) • For users with multiple database files, Emerson recommends that all files use the same alarm limit and parameter sets, to use unique set ID numbers for each database, or to only download routes from the same database for each collection survey. The use of sets with the same ID number but different definitions can produce unexpected results if both are loaded into an equipment analyzer at the same time (see note).
Note If your data collectors have Database Name Support turned on, this will not cause a problem.

• Design your Alarm Limit Sets so that the early warning, alert, and fault limits increase numerically for upper alarm types and decrease numerically for lower alarm types. AMS Machinery Manager does not force any relative relationship between these limits. The B alarm code, however, could never occur if the early warning limit exceeds the alert or fault limits as more severe alarms would have taken precedence. Alarm checking starts at the highest alarm type and stops as soon as an alarm has been generated. Decide how many measurements you need to calculate the standard deviation. Enter that amount for Number of Data Values in Statistical Calculations on the Measurement Point Definition window. A large standard deviation occurs when the measurements are quite different. Measurements that have little difference, however, produce a small standard deviation. AMS Machinery Manager adds the mean (average) value to a multiple of the calculated standard deviation. The multiple is defined by the Maximum Deviation in the Alarm Limit Set. This calculated value is then compared to the observed value of the signal parameter. The accuracy of this common statistical technique of highlighting unusual data depend on: • the number of data points used to define the sample; • the duration of time involved in the collection of the sample; • the variance of the sample. An alarm caused by this analysis method may prove insignificant with a small standard deviation. The larger the sample, the more accurate the standard deviation and the mean. You can calculate a standard deviation only after you collect enough measurements. A number of measurements collected over an interval of several months may more accurately represent equipment operation than collection over a period of a few weeks.

Show Routes on Tree/Show MeasPnt (Measurement Points) on Tree

This option was previously described in “Show Routes on Tree/Show MeasPnt on Tree” on page 4-3.
Clear Baslin

In the early stages of a vibration analysis program, there may be data sets collected and stored that contain errors or erratic values, because the analyst is learning how to use the device. AMS Machinery Manager automatically assigns the first set of vibration data stored for a particular measurement point as its baseline data set. If you do not wish to establish this first set as baseline data, select this option to reset the baseline values to zero. The data sets previously stored are not destroyed however, the next vibration data set stored in the database for the location(s) of interest will automatically become the new baseline.
Clr Ave/Sigm

Enables you to reset to zero any averages or standard deviations calculated for a measurement location. These values are calculated from a sample of data sets as defined by the Measurement Point Information window. After this option is activated, the average and standard deviation is calculated from the data sets subsequently stored in the database. Any previously-stored data sets are ignored for this calculation.
Clr All Stat

Combines the action of the previous two options. The values identified as baseline, average, and standard deviation are returned to zero and new values are established by subsequent vibration data sets stored in the database. Previously-collected data sets are simply ignored.
Set Basl = Ave

Enables you to set the baseline values stored for a measurement point to be equal to the average values calculated from its statistical sample.

4-28

Stored Data Management - DATMGR

Calc New Stat

Enables you to specify a beginning and ending date, and time associated with a sample of data sets for the calculation of new statistics. If the number of data sets within the specified time interval is less than the total amount required for a sample, AMS Machinery Manager calculates new averages and standard deviations using the available data sets. It continues to update these values as each new data set is stored until the defined sample of data sets have been completed.
Manual Edit

Enables you to manually enter the statistical values used for determining the alarm conditions for the acquired data. You are required to define the baseline, average, and standard deviation for each analysis parameter associated with each measurement point. With this option, you are never required to collect and store data sets for a complete statistical sample.
Caution! Modifying trend data statistics is a powerful tool for the analyst. If improperly used, however, RBMview alarm reporting features can be made misleading and ineffective. Exercise extreme caution when performing any of these baseline and statistical value changes.

All information transferred to the machinery analyzer from AMS Machinery Manager must be in the form of a route. For example. if necessary. 7-1 . The route also instructs the machinery analyzer how to collect and store data. The Route Management Program (ROUTE) is used to create and manage routes. A single route or a number of routes (depending on the analyzer’s memory capacity) can be downloaded into the machinery analyzer. equipment classified with a particular system. All equipment and measurement points of a route must be from the same area. and ROUTE can be used to edit and modify these routes. the ROUTE program can group similar equipment for: Analysis with Diagnostic Plotting (PLOTDATA) or Automated fault Diagnostics (NSpectr) Reporting with Exceptions Reporting (EXPORT) Global data management with Database Utility Functions (DBUTLY) Routes can also be generated while using the EXPORT program.ROUTE 1 A route is a list of equipment and measurement points that have been selected from all of the equipment in an area. however.Chapter 7 Route Management. This capability to group equipment may also be used with other AMS Machinery Manager program modules. This list is arranged in such a manner as to provide an efficient path (route) for the operator to follow when collecting data. routes may group equipment in any logical manner such as equipment located on the same floor. etc.
