02.01.2012 News: Machine monitoring system increases availability and productivity in manufacturing and process industries

The Siplus CMS2000 from the Siemens Industry Automation Division is a system for monitoring machines which helps companies to increase the availability of their plants and selectively plan maintenance work. The modular condition monitoring system (CMS) is suitable for monitoring and analyzing mechanical components in individual machines and complex drive trains.


The Siemens Industry Automation Division is expanding its range of plant monitoring systems with the Siplus CMS2000. The system can monitor and analyze mechanical components like motors, generators, pumps or fans by recording vibrations, rotational speeds and temperature. This makes it possible to detect and remedy potential defects in machines before they occur, enabling maintenance work to be planned reliably. The result is increased plant availability and productivity, and reduced repair and maintenance costs.

Siplus CMS2000 offers two standard IEPE interfaces for connecting vibration sensors as well as one speed input, two analog inputs, two digital inputs, and three digital outputs. The modular system can also be expanded by temperature modules from the Simocode family. Further modules will be available soon. The integral diagnostics software means users can evaluate characteristic values of the bearing and vibration monitoring system and perform a frequency-selective analysis of the recorded data as well as a trend analysis.

Siplus CMS2000 can be visualized and parameterized easily by using a web browser without additional software. This allows service personnel problem-free local access even with remote operation. In addition, the system informs personnel by e-mail of the status of the plant and, if required, it can provide the raw data. Internet access is password-protected. The internet-connected company server should be equipped with a firewall to provide additional protection. Alternatively, online access is possible via the secure cRSP platform from Siemens within the scope of a service agreement.

With the combined functionality of monitoring and analysis, Siplus CMS2000 supplements the Siplus CMS product range that until now encompassed the Siplus CMS1000 system for simple machine monitoring and the powerful Siplus CMS4000 system for complex analysis and measuring tasks.

Siemens has developed the Siplus CMS monitoring systems specifically for monitoring plants and machines. The aim is to enlist the help of condition monitoring systems to increase plant availability as the most powerful lever for boosting productivity. The Siplus CMS helps to detect fault sources at an early stage and scheduled maintenance work can be carried out at suitable points in the production cycle. After extended periods of fault-free operation, any significant irregularities resulting from wear and tear or other damage-related causes can be detected at the outset using the documented trend curves. Predictable problems can thus be corrected as they arise – before more significant damage, cost-intensive consequential damage, or even total failure results. Condition monitoring systems from Siemens are used worldwide in a host of production plants and in different sectors such as mechanical equipment manufacture, pulp and paper, renewable energy, metals and mining, oil and gas, and the automotive industry.
