Rely on automated diagnostics with extensive fault detection

ExpertALERT™, our automated diagnostic software, provides critical machinery health information
instead of just vibration data by rapidly ExpertALERTscreening vibration measurements and applying over 4,500 unique rules to identify over 650 individual faults in a wide variety of machine types. In the WATCHMAN Online System, where there is a persistent stream of vibration data, it is important to have a software tool that is capable of scrubbing through these readings to find exact fault trends with ample warning to order the correct parts and plan the downtime.
