ALERT – Vibration Diagnostic Software


ExpertALERT™ is the most advanced machinery condition assessment software available on the market today. Advanced analysis tools and our legendary automated diagnostic system.

ExpertALERT™ provides critical machinery health information instead of just vibration data, by rapidly screening vibration measurements and applying over 4,500 unique rules to identify individual faults in a wide variety of machine types.


Our proven automated machinery condition assessment system can process hundreds of vibration measurements in just a few minutes, leaving you with a fault diagnosis, fault severity and repair priority on each machine. Instead of overwhelming you with spectral data that may be difficult to interpret, ExpertALERT provides fast, accurate, and understandable results.

Condition Based Maintenance

A successful Condition-based or predictive maintenance program can reap many rewards: reduce maintenance costs, reduce unscheduled down time, reduce catastrophic failures, improve production, improve plant safety, etc. What does it take to run a successful program today? With all the additional pressures being placed on staff, and the demands for improved financial performance, you have to choose the right partner, the right approach, and the right tools.

Keys to a World-Class Condition Based Maintenance Program:

  • Simple to Learn and Operate
  • Automated Data Screening
  • Accurate Prediction of Machine Faults
  • Multi-level Machine Fault Severity Determination
  • Prioritized Repair Recommendations
  • Sophisticated Communications Tools for Reporting and Information Distribution
  • Integrate Other PdM Technologies, Repair Manuals and Historical information
  • Use Process Information for Performance monitoring

Let’s face it, your job is not to play with software, endlessly study spectral graphs and wrestle with data collectors. Your job is to keep the plant running. You just don’t have time for anything but the best designed tools. Azima DLI data collectors and software have been designed with that principle in mind. Remember, we just don’t just sell vibration products, we use them ourselves.

ExpertALERT is Azima DLI’s latest generation of this highly successful automated vibration diagnostic software. The all new ExpertALERT has been developed with emphasis on the user interface. Much like Windows® Explorer, all information and functions are available from a single layer, intuitive screen. On the left a tree, to the right, selected data and information.

Database and expert system setups are made easy with new Setup Wizards. Database management, Vibration Analysis, and Expert Automated Diagnostics have never been easier.

Crystal Clear

The all new Windows graphical user interface provides quick access to any data in your program. The new analysis tools provide the analyst with a crystal clear picture of a machine’s faults. Traditional tools such as dynamic harmonic and sideband cursors, fault frequency markers, and others have become easier to use. Results, trending and summary data are quickly accessed for any test taken over time.

A few key features of ExpertALERT:

  • Fast and easy system set up with advanced Setup Wizards
  • Rapid vibration data screening using sensitive narrow-band vibration techniques for early detection of faults
  • Proven diagnostic system that identifies problem machines and gives accurate diagnosis of fault(s)
  • Prioritized Repair Recommendations – comparable to experienced human vibration analyst in a mature program
  • Reduce your data analysis and diagnosis time by hours. Rather than analyzing every single spectrum collected, the expert system will give you an accurate diagnosis and recommendation, in minutes not hours
  • Professional, flexible report generation
  • Ability to Easily Integrate Other PdM Technologies

Graphical Analysis

ExpertALERT is unsurpassed when it comes to graphical analysis tools. You can view spectra in single, or three per page formats. If you need to examine the data to learn more about a suspected problem, ExpertALERT will have the tool.

ExpertALERT Analysis Tools

  • 3D Spectral Waterfall
  • Single Axis, Triaxial, and Double-Triax Spectral and Waveform Displays
  • Reference Cursor Delta Markers
  • Harmonic Markers – Machine View Diagram
  • Fault Frequency Calculation
  • Sideband Markers
  • Cepstum Analysis
  • Orbit, Filtered Orbit and Full Spectrum
  • Bearing Database (>9000 Bearings)
  • Polar Phase Plot
  • Auto Normalization
  • Integration & Differentiation

Many in the industry lay claims of a vibration analysis and diagnostic system. However, not one of our competitor’s claims can stand up to the power, depth and accuracy of ExpertALERT’s machinery diagnostics. In competitive tests, time after time, our Automated Diagnostics Engine is clearly the leader.

You can use the diagnostic report to review the results and interactively display drawings of the machines, explanations of the diagnoses, and graphical displays in a variety of formats. The diagnostic system gives you a diagnosis of the problem(s) that exist, and a recommendation. In addition, each fault diagnosis is given a severity, both verbal (slight, moderate, serious or extreme), and numeric. You may then trend this information and thus determine how the severity is changing over time, telling you how quickly you need to act. This is possibly the most useful tool.

Diagnostic System Features

  • Over 4,500 rules
  • Continuous development and improvement since 1988
  • Over 650 machine fault messages
  • 21 different component types supported
  • Uses demodulated spectra for advanced bearing wear diagnosis

Our Diagnostic Engine uses an empirical, rule based, logic system that utilizes order normalized data, spectrum analysis, cepstrum analysis, demodulated data analysis ( enveloping ), and a few methods we would refer to as “proprietary”. Our new Diagnostic System also has become more flexible, where single axis, bi-axial and (as always) triaxial vibration data formats are now all accepted for accurate diagnoses.

Hearing is Believing

One recent advancement is taking the technology backwards! It has long been proven that audio evaluations of vibration test data are valuable in identifying machinery problems. Traditional mechanics have a trained ear for machinery problems, listening to transmitted sound through a screwdriver pressed against their ear. Now analysts can develop and use this skill to identify tough machine problems. ExpertALERT transforms your vibration data into continuous sound clips that are heard from your PC multimedia speakers. Compare common machinery test points, identify a source of airborne noise, and confirm expert and manual analysis with your trusted sense of sound.
