RAS - Remote Access Sensors from UE Systems

Inspect enclosed or hard-to-reach bearings with UE Systems’ permanent mounted sensors

When accessibility is an issue, such as when a motor is contained within a closed cabinet, or a test point is in a hard-to-reach area, the Remote Access Sensor (RAS) is the answer.

Mount the RAS on the test point and run a cable to an access area where a RAM (Remote Access Module) can be connected. When the point is to be tested, plug the RAM into your Ultraprobe and take your reading. Installation is very simple and testing is really easy.

Just mount the RAS transducer on your test subject, attach a BNC cable, run the cable through an access hole. Now, every time you come by, just plug it into your Ultraprobe 9000, 10.000, 15.000 or 401, record your data and move on.

If you have multiple bearings on hard-to-reach areas, you can even make use of UE Systems’ Switch Boxes which will allow to test up to 8 bearings at once!

UE RAS Switch Box

When access or safety make it challenging to inspect a test point, the RAS Switchbox is your answer, making remote sensing quick, easy and safe.

Connect and test single or multiple points remotely. Permanently mount a RAS to a test point and run a coax cable to the Switch Box. Once connected, you may test up to 8 test points at a time. To test, attach a RAM (Remote Access Module) to the Switchbox, select a test point indicator and collect your data. It’s that easy!

The UE Switchbox can be used with the Ultraprobe 9.000, 10.000, 15.000 and 401.

Ultrasound CAT I / Level I Training
Become an Ultrasound inspection engineer Inspections with airborne ultrasound are non-destructive tests and their effectiveness depends on the engineer’s ability to perform the inspections. Our extensive training allows professionals to achieve the best predictive maintenance practices after the implementation of a high quality ultrasound program. The training includes the following topics: - All aspects of ultrasound technology; - Effective mechanical analysis, leak detection and electrical inspections; - Conducting leak detection audits, condition based lubrication, steam trap inspection, trending of bearings and electrical inspections; - Optimizing the availability of assets and the profitability of the company; - Improved techniques and methods for a quality ultrasound inspection; - Improving recording and reporting skills through special analytical and data management; - Reducing energy consumption. The training takes 4½ days and consists of four days of theory / practice and a half day for the summary and exam. Lunch is provided and, like the exams, is included in the price. The qualification, training and certification program (UEQ-TC-1A) is built according to the guidelines of the American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) Recommended Practice SNT-TC-1A. In addition, the training is in accordance with ISO 18436-8 for the inspection and diagnosis of machinery. The CAT I / Level I course is meant for inspectors, maintenance managers, supervisors or service company employees who want to improve their knowledge in the field of air and structure borne ultrasound.

Bearing Inspection with Ultrasound How Ultrasound Bearing Inspection Works
Bearing Inspection with Ultrasound
How Ultrasound Bearing Inspection Works Mechanical movements produce a wide spectrum of sound. One of the major contributors to excessive stress in machinery is friction. Ultrasound instruments detect friction. By focusing on a narrow band of high frequencies, the Ultraprobe from UE Systems detects subtle changes in amplitude and sound quality produced by operating equipment. It then heterodynes these normally undetectable sounds down into the audible range where they are heard through headphones and observed on a display panel for trending, comparison, and analysis. It has been established that ultrasound monitoring provides early warning of bearing failure. Various stages of bearing failure have been established. An 8 dB gain over baseline indicates pre-failure or lack of lubrication. A 12 dB increase establishes the very beginning of the failure mode. A 16 dB gain indicates advanced failure condition while a 35-50 dB gain warns of catastrophic failure. For those who utilize ultrasound

UE Systems 4Cast: Bearing Condition Monitoring System
Save time, save your bearings and improve plant reliability Review bearing information from the convenience of your office. - Monitor bearing condition 24/7 and tell 4Cast when to send a report: This unique, system continuously logs bearing data and bearing sounds. At pre-set intervals, all stored data and sound samples are sent to a computer for reporting and analysis. How often do you want 4Cast to sample a bearing? System flexibility allows users to pre-set how often a bearing will be tested: by the minute, hour, day, etc. - Customize your report intervals: Data and sound recording transfer rates are customizable so that while the data are routinely recorded on the 4Cast box, a report containing only the latest information will be sent to Ultratrend DMS (UE Systems data management analysis and reporting program). Reporting frequency can be set by the user (for example, once a week, month or year). - Set your alarm levels: Alarm levels can be set to provide a low alarm and a high alarm. - Analyze how
