Machinery protection systems are generally thought of as a necessity that acts as an “earthquake switch” for your critical machinery. Often, these systems are stranded in hard-to-reach areas and are not connected to the plant’s data processes. They are typically hard to configure and require many spare parts to deal with the different types of signals. New technologies are emerging to deliver valuable predictive data from the protection system, making it a contributor to improving plant and asset reliability.

Eliminating reactive work caused by equipment failure is essential to improve uptime from reliable equipment operation. However, manufacturing and other asset-intensive industries can find this difficult to achieve.
Applying defect-elimination tools such as root-cause analysis can remove the reactive work that prevents sites from performing essential proactive care tasks. In addition to discussing why root-cause analysis is important, how to do it right, and what it means to reliability, this webinar will provide a common-sense approach that can be implemented within the demands placed on those charged with maintaining/restoring equipment function.
If you’re tired of putting out “fires,” participate in this webinar and so you can start preventing them. Click here to register today.
This webinar focuses on Schneider Electric’s Asset Condition Manager, a solution that helps companies move from a reactive maintenance environment to a proactive, collaborative, and best-practices-based approach to Asset Management. Are you looking for solutions that will help your organization achieve ‘world class’ levels of Asset productivity and reliability through the involvement of both operations and maintenance? We discuss how you can manage the complexity of devices and assets from different suppliers and move to a more proactive maintenance approach. Click here to view this webinar.
