VDS by Crystal Instruments
The Vibration Diagnostic System (VDS) is a vibration data management system designed specifically for the Machinery Predictive Maintenance (PdM) community. It harnesses the graphic display capabilities of Crystal Instruments EDM Software for the work of machinery vibration analysts. It allows the user to quickly get to the data for a machine of interest and display that data in the familiar Tri-axial or Single Axis view. It lets users quickly compare to other data from the same machine, quickly navigate back into the historical data of the machine, and quickly compare the data to that of other machines in the database. The software supports the construction of Average (a.k.a. baseline) data for a class of machines and allows easy comparison to that data as well. When users interact with the data they will have access to a full suite of cursors designed specifically for PdM analysis. Model your machines with our machine components. We have over 60 common components that you can use to model your machines.
In addition to great graphics, Crystal Instruments has developed an extensible machine modeling system specifically for vibration analysis. It allows users to model machines based on the elements of the machine that can contribute to the vibration energy of the whole. Model bearings, rotors such as motor bars, couplings such as flexible and fluid couplings, account for slip in things like fluid couplings, model gears and pulley systems, and model turbines by accounting for each stage. It’s wide open, users can create new elements to use in their system.
