The K6CM is the latest motor condition monitoring device with the ability to quantify the status of a three-phase induction motor and incorporating EtherNet/IP communication to trend information on current analysis, motor vibration, motor temperature, and insulation resistance.
LCD visual alarm display for easy visual indication of the motor status
Capable of monitoring current, motor analysis, motor vibration, motor temperature, and insulation resistance
Motor condition can be trended using software tool
Insulation resistance and current monitor devices can be easily installed without removing or changing the existing wiring
Threshold setting ability to stay informed of maintenance forecasting
Push-in plus technology that reduces wiring work
The nature of a three-phase induction motor requires maintenance throughout its operational life. Bearing wear, out-of-phase motion, and insulation resistance breakdown are just some of the effects of constant operation. Maintenance workers want to know when the motor is beginning to degrade so that they can plan maintenance accordingly. Without a monitoring device, typically motor inspection requires maintenance to feel or listen for differences from the motor’s normal operation. By using the K6CM to monitor the motor’s overall current analysis, vibration and temperature, or insulation resistance, customers can receive alerts when their motor is starting to degrade and they can plan their maintenance activity more effectively. The real-time monitoring allows customers to push the K6CM output to their SCADA system and monitor in a central location via EtherNet/IP.
The K6CM motor monitoring device is perfect for end users looking to maximize production uptime based on having knowledge of the condition of their three-phase induction motors. The local visual indication bar will help maintenance personnel identify motors that require maintenance. Furthermore, all motors with a K6CM connected can be monitored from a central location to more efficiently plan motor maintenance activity.
