Machine Condition Monitoring Knowledge Center
Welcome to the National Instruments Machine Control and Monitoring Knowledge Center. Today's machine builders are faced with designing increasingly complex mechanical and electronic systems to stay competitive. This website offers the latest technical information for machine design and control applications.
Download this comprehensive guide to learn step-by-step best practices for designing your next machine.
Machine condition monitoring is the process of monitoring the condition of a machine with the intent to predict mechanical wear and failure. Vibration, noise, and temperature measurements are often used as key indicators of the state of the machine. Trends in the data provide health information about the machine and help detect machine faults early, which prevents unexpected failure and costly repair. Learn more in this technical library.
Examine the benefits of creating distributed monitoring and control systems as well as the fundamentals of building these systems in this white paper.
Machine condition monitoring can help your organization stop unscheduled outages, optimize machine performance, and reduce repair time and maintenance costs. Down load this resource kit that includes tutorials, webcasts and other resources to explore why machine monitoring is important for increasing the life of your machinery and efficiency of your plant.
Machine builders have made advances in developing technology that can complete repetitive tasks with great speed. See how you can integrate the next generation of machines into your control systems.
The Graphical System Design Calculator is an online tool that helps you understand the financial benefits and trade-offs between using off-the-shelf products (BUY) and traditional custom design tools (BUILD). Simply enter the project information for your current or next project using the sliders or the boxes on the left and watch the calculator estimate your initial cost of development, time to market and profit over time.
