Guard Gear 300 - Online Condition Monitoring

Guard Gear 300

Guard Gear 300

The most optimal maintenance strategy is condition-based maintenance.  For the most critical machines, online condition monitoring gives more reliability and service actions can be taken only when needed. In many industrial processes gearboxes are often critical components. As a forerunning gearbox manufacturer, we at Kumera Drives have developed a gearbox condition monitoring device called Guard Gear 300.

Technical data

Guard Gear 300 is designed for diagnosing industrial gearboxes. The function of Guard Gear 300 is based on measuring parameters that indicate incipient failure of mechanical components and lubrication oil. These are:

  • Vibration
    • Frequency bandwidths;
      10-40 Hz, 40-400 Hz and 400-1000 Hz
  • Lubrication oil
    • Quality
    • Level
    • Temperature
  • Rotational speed 

It is possible to attach optional sensors measuring, for example,  humidity, viscosity, or particles of lubrication oil. Load or torque information from the process can be monitored with Guard Gear 300. Warning and alarm limits can be set for all variables. Measurement results are automatically saved into the internal memory and can be also saved into a text-file for further processing. 

Interface

The user interface is web browser based, it is possible to use with an Ethernet connection or wirelessly with a Bluetooth (PAN) or 3G connection. Gearbox information and documents (part list, assembly drawing…) can be saved into the internal memory. There is also available a field for notes, into which observations or, for example, gear unit service history can be written.

If you are interested in online gearbox condition monitoring, please contact Kumera Drives sales department so we can survey if Guard Gear 300 is a solution for your needs.
