System 1 Condition Monitoring Software

Oct 04, 2023

The success of any process-intensive industry relies heavily on the proper care and management of the machinery powering the work. Unplanned outages or inefficient maintenance routines can reduce productivity and eat away at your profits.

At Bently Nevada†, we understand the challenges our customers face. Our System 1 software has been designed as an all-in-one answer to even your most difficult machine asset management and health monitoring challenges. Building on the strategic pillars of Connectivity, Analytics, and Visualization the System 1 platform provides the plantwide critical asset monitoring data and analytics solutions you need to keep your plant running smoothly and avoid unwanted downtime.

System 1’s connected platform gathers and stores important machine health data across your entire enterprise in one central location, for real-time analysis, diagnosis and preventative condition-based maintenance planning. Make data-informed decisions and achieve true operational intelligence with System 1.

Today, the focus of many of our customers is on the total management of their production assets.

How Bently Nevada’s System 1 condition-based monitoring platform can help your organization from a holistic perspective.

By combining industry leading connectivity, analytics, and visualization capabilities, System 1 is the premier edge historian and condition monitoring platform for refinery operators. See how system 1 provides solutions to common refinery challenges.

Rotating Equipment Maintenance Strategies: From Preventative to Predictive Maintenance

Predictive, condition-based maintenance proves challenging when critical data is scattered across varying and incompatible systems. System 1’s flexible architecture allows for broad access to machine, process and controls data. Data from Bently Nevada machinery monitoring systems combine with data from other sources in the plant to provide a holistic view of the health of your assets.

Intelligent data management is the combination of two key capabilities within System 1. The first is state-based data collection, which allows data to be collected at different rates based on different machine operating modes. The second is data thinning algorithms, which periodically summarize historical data into smaller data sets with fewer data points, effectively reducing the overall storage memory requirements and ensuring storage capacity for years to come.

System 1 supports the industry-standard OPC UA protocol for export of waveforms, trends and alarm data to other data systems, data lakes and analytics platforms. Built-in data replication and data diode support allow System 1 data to be transferred securely over public and internal networks, making your data available where needed; while simplifying compliance to NERC CIP and other international cybersecurity standards.

System 1 supports a proactive machinery monitoring strategy by detecting changes in conditions before failure occurs. System 1's state-based alarm configuration allows collected data to be compared against varying alarm levels, depending on the load and operating states of the machine.

System 1’s Decision Support option helps put your staff’s years of machine learning to use with customizable rules that offer advanced insights into the behavior of your machines and process conditions.

System 1’s advanced machine condition analytics can be enhanced with Bently Performance giving users access to extensive thermodynamic and mechanical information on machine assets.

System 1’s HMI capability allows you to create a virtual depiction of your plant assets with color-coded indicators of machine health.

Vibration analysis is a complicated science. Bently Nevada has been a leader in the design of tools that allow our users to perform the necessary functions of the job: trend analysis and baselining, alarm prioritization and suppression, detailed fault and root-cause analysis, repair confirmation and setpoint management. With System 1’s asset-specific plot types, users can quickly identify machine irregularities for proactive condition-based maintenance and optimization. The machinery data you need with context and clarity.

Case management provides the tools necessary to add notes to instances of machine damage, generate reports to communicate repair needs to the field or plant teams, and create machine audit files as archives for future reference.
