Machinery health monitoring in modern HUMS and unmanned air vehicle development is entering a new era, with more urgency, as industry moves toward better asset management and eventually to cloud-based operation. Aircraft and machines of the future are expected to have the ability to self-diagnose conditions that could lead to failure or downtime. To reach those goals, Dytran has developed CAN-MD®, an innovative sensor-based digital machinery diagnostics platform that transitions vibration monitoring to an all-digital format with high-level, broadband vibration data.
CAN-MD® sensors are the first of their kind, featuring onboard digital signal processing (DSP) that enables the next generation of machinery diagnostics. CAN-MD® accelerometers collect vibration data, process spectral data, and post condition indicators (CI’s) that allow advanced vehicles and machines to self-diagnose conditions that could lead to catastrophic failure or unanticipated downtime. CIs can be used to trend developing faults, predict failures, or trigger alarms for maintenance and shutdown.
