Condition Monitoring and Distributed Protection
In demanding industrial environments, machinery failure can be catastrophic. While repair costs alone can be staggering, the partial or total loss of production resulting from a failure can mean millions of dollars per day and change the overall profit and loss for a customer's entire year.
Condition monitoring is more than just a good idea -- it is a necessity. Continuously monitoring critical asset parameters such as vibration, temperature, speed, and other relevant indicators is proven to anticipate and prevent mechanical failures. This hydropower method has been proven in tens of thousands of industrial facilities worldwide, and Bently Nevada delivers these tangible benefits:
- Intelligent, actionable insights for predictive maintenance via System 1 software
- Less process interruptions
- Improved protection from catastrophic failures
- Cost savings in maintenance and repairs
- Cost savings through reduced insurance premiums
- Longer intervals between outages

Distributed Protection Product Overview
The 1900/65A General Purpose Equipment Monitor is designed to continuously monitor and protect equipment across a variety of applications and industries. With a low cost, multiple inputs (4 transducer and 4 temperature) and outputs (6 relay, 4 recorder and 1 dedicated buffer) along with optional Modbus and Display Module configuration - the 1900/65A is an ideal solution for general purpose machines and processes that can benefit from continuous monitoring and protection.
The 2300 Vibration Monitor provides cost-effective continuous condition monitoring and protection for smaller machines. Features two input signals from acceleration, velocity or proximity vibration transducers as well as a pulse-based speed input. Any of the three channels can accept -24 to 0 V process sensor signals. The 2300 provides three buffered analog signal outputs, two relays for actuating annunciators or initiating protective machine trips, and two 4-20 mA outputs. Modbus/TCP is also available for control systems and HMI display. Offers ATEX, IECEx and CSA certifications to protect areas that may have flammable atmospheres. Condition monitoring trend, waveform and spectrum data is provided to System 1 software via Ethernet.
The distributed ADAPT* 3701/40 Machinery Dynamics Monitor is designed for use on a broad range of machines with up to 12 measurement channels where advanced signal processing is required. The 3701/40 is optimized for the intensive signal processing required on complex machinery such as gearboxes, planetary gearboxes, and rolling element-bearing machines. The advanced measurement capabilities provide support monitoring of radial vibration and thrust position for machines with fluid-film bearings.
