Metrix Setpoint Announces OEM Partnership With OSIsoft

In June 2014, Metrix Setpoint announced the company has entered into an OEM partnership agreement with OSIsoft, producer of the PI System, the industry's leading real-time infrastructure for streaming data and events. SETPOINT CMS software will use OSIsoft's PI System technology for its underlying real-time data infrastructure.

The Metrix Setpoint system is the first to use the PI System to archive not only overall vibration trends,
but also high-speed waveform data and 80ms fast trend data, eliminating the need for a separate, stand-alone condition monitoring software environment. In addition to eliminating redundant infrastructure, this combination of real-time process data with all vibration data in the same system supports earlier diagnosis of equipment issues. As a result, companies will be able to better utilize assets, avoid unexpected failures and reduce capital replacement costs. Combined, Metrix and OSIsoft represent over 75 years of experience delivering leading products to machinery-intensive industries such as Power Generation and Oil & Gas.

Setpoint hardware from Metrix collects and streams high-speed, high-resolution data from any underlying vibration monitoring system for rotating and reciprocating machinery to the PI System.

Standard PI System visualization tools can be used, such as PI ProcessBook and DataLink, along with the Setpoint CMS display application that works with PI ProcessBook to support more advanced visualizations such as spectrum, orbit, time-base, shaft centerline, polar, and bode vibration plots.

Although the condition monitoring world has typically used a closed and proprietary software approach since the 1980s, Randall Chitwood, Metrix SETPOINT VP says "this new approach changes all that. Almost every customer we engage with already has the PI System in their facility."

Chitwood says Metrix's customers are delighted to hear that an integrated solution is now offered  that delivers condition-based monitoring without the need for a separate software infrastructure.

The PI system can be formulated to meet individual condition monitoring needs.

"Efficient, reliable and safe operations require healthy equipment" said Martin Otterson OSIsoft Senior Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Industry. "Empowering plant personnel to get real time insights into the health of equipment allows organization to take a proactive versus a reactive approach to avoiding unnecessary failures and costs."
