163179-03 is a Process Variable Monitor manufactured and designed by Bently Nevada as part of the 3500 Series used for monitoring seismic activity. The 3500/62 Process Variable Monitor is a 6-channel monitor for processing machine critical parameters that merit continuous monitoring, such as pressures, flows, temperatures, and levels. The monitor accepts +4 to +20 mA current inputs or any proportional voltage inputs between -10 Vdc and +10 Vdc. It conditions these signals and compares the conditioned signals to user-programmable alarm setpoints. The 3500/62 monitor:

  • Continuously compares monitored parameters against configured alarm setpoints to drive alarms for machinery protection.
  • l Provides essential machine information for both operations and maintenance personnel.

You can program the 3500/62 using the 3500 Rack Configuration Software to perform either current or voltage measurements. The 3500/62 offers I/O modules for three signal input scenarios: +/-10 Volts DC, isolated 4-20 mA, or 4- 20 mA with Intrinsically Safe zener barriers. The Internal Barrier I/O provides external power input terminals to provide intrinsically safe power to the 4-20 mA transducers

When used in a Triple Modular Redundant (TMR) configuration, you must install Process Variable Monitors adjacent to each other in groups of three. When used in this configuration, the monitor employs two types of voting to ensure accurate operation and to avoid loss of machinery protection due to single-point failures.

What is a Process Variable?

A process variable is a measurable quantity that characterizes the state or progress of a system or process. Examples include temperature, pressure, flow rate, and level.

What Does a Process Variable Monitor Do?

A Process Variable Monitor is designed to continuously or periodically measure and monitor one or more process variables. It provides real-time data to operators or control systems, allowing for adjustments and ensuring that the process operates within specified parameters.

Why is Monitoring Process Variables Important?

Monitoring process variables is crucial for maintaining optimal performance, ensuring product quality, and preventing equipment failure. It allows for early detection of deviations from the desired conditions, enabling prompt corrective action.
