Distributed Protection with Condition Monitoring
Bently Nevada protection systems serve to prevent catastrophes (loss of life, financial, environmental) and to monitoring the health of machines across a wide range of industries and applications. The complex technology developed by Bently Nevada since 1961 keeps employees safe, improves productivity and efficiency for customer plants, and gives customers greater visibility and clarity for better machine maintenance and reliability.
Industries rely on critical machinery every hour of every day. In these settings, machinery failure isn’t just inconvenient, it can be catastrophic.
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 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 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.
- Machinery protection and condition monitoring using state of the art electronics and signal processing.
- New generation platform ensuring robust, long term lifecycle support.
- Compact form factor and skid or local mounting capability reduce wiring and installation cost.
- Multiple customizable measurements configurable on a signal source to optimize early detection of failure modes and provide the condition monitoring data you need for PdM.
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 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.
Orbit 60 Series is Bently Nevada’s next generation of machinery protection and condition monitoring designed to be the most advanced system for all your critical machinery assets across a wide range of industrial process applications.
