System 1 Condition Monitoring Software
Plant-Wide Machine Health Monitoring and Asset Protection System
Why Condition Monitoring?
The success of any process-intensive industry relies heavily on the proper care and management of the machinery powering the work. Unplanned outages or inefficient maintenance routines can reduce productivity and eat away at your profits.
At Bently Nevada†, we understand the challenges our customers face. Our System 1† Condition Monitoring software has been designed as an all-in-one answer to even your most difficult machine asset management and health monitoring challenges. Building on the strategic pillars of Connectivity, Analytics, and Visualization the System 1 platform provides the plant-wide critical asset monitoring data and analytics solutions you need to keep your plant running smoothly and avoid unwanted downtime.
System 1’s connected platform gathers and stores important machine health data across your entire enterprise in one central location, for real-time analysis, diagnosis and preventative condition-based maintenance planning. Make data-informed decisions and achieve true operational intelligence with System 1.
System 1 enables plant-wide condition monitoring of all your assets from anywhere and keeps maintenance issues to a minimum. System 1 helps you meet the challenges you face with maintaining your equipment whether they be smaller staffs, fewer experts on the ground, competing priorities, or simply keeping up with increasing productivity demands.

The customer’s machinery assets are monitored by one of the largest installed bases of System 1 and associated Bently Nevada software and hardware in the world.
System 1 Wins Gold! System 1 is the recipient of Oil & Gas Engineering’s prestigious Product of the Year award for 2019. Oil & Gas Engineering’s Product of the Year (POY) program is the premier award for new products in the oil and gas industry.
System 1 Platform Pillars
Comprehensive Machine Data Collection
Predictive, condition-based maintenance proves challenging when critical data is scattered across varying and incompatible systems. System 1’s flexible architecture allows for broad access to machine, process and controls data. Data from Bently Nevada machinery monitoring systems combine with data from other sources in the plant to provide a holistic view of the health of your assets.
Intelligent Machine Health Data Management
Intelligent data management is the combination of two key capabilities within System 1. The first is state-based data collection, which allows data to be collected at different rates based on different machine operating modes. The second is data thinning algorithms, which periodically summarize historical data into smaller data sets with fewer data points, effectively reducing the overall storage memory requirements and ensuring storage capacity for years to come.
Flexible and Secure Data Transfer
System 1 supports the industry-standard OPC UA protocol for export of waveforms, trends and alarm data to other data systems, data lakes and analytics platforms. Built-in data replication and data diode support allow System 1 data to be transferred securely over public and internal networks, making your data available where needed; while simplifying compliance to NERC CIP and other international cybersecurity standards.
System 1 supports a proactive machinery monitoring strategy by detecting changes in conditions before failure occurs. System 1's state-based alarm configuration allows collected data to be compared against varying alarm levels, depending on the load and operating states of the machine.
Knowledge-Based Machine Learning
System 1’s Decision Support option helps put your staff’s years of machine learning to use with customizable rules that offer advanced insights into the behavior of your machines and process conditions.
Advanced Machine Thermodynamic Monitoring
System 1’s advanced machine condition analytics can be enhanced with Bently Performance giving users access to extensive thermodynamic and mechanical information on machine assets.
System 1’s HMI capability allows you to create a virtual depiction of your plant assets with color-coded indicators of machine health.
Comprehensive Machine Diagnostics Tools
Vibration analysis is a complicated science. Bently Nevada has been a leader in the design of tools that allow our users to perform the necessary functions of the job: trend analysis and baselining, alarm prioritization and suppression, detailed fault and root-cause analysis, repair confirmation and setpoint management. With System 1’s asset-specific plot types, users can quickly identify machine irregularities for proactive condition-based maintenance and optimization. The machinery data you need with context and clarity.
Case management provides the tools necessary to add notes to instances of machine damage, generate reports to communicate repair needs to the field or plant teams, and create machine audit files as archives for future reference.
Machine Monitoring and Protection Equipment
System 1† provides seamless integration with a variety of industry-leading machinery monitoring and protection hardware, vibration sensors and sensor platforms. When integrated with System 1†, these devices allow reliability engineers real-time access to the machine asset health data they need to improve plant productivity and machine reliability.
