Condition monitoring made easy!

Versatile and user-friendly MTN/5000 condition monitoring system

The MTN/5000, a cost-effective and versatile microcontroller-based condition monitoring system has been launched by Monitran.

The MTN/5000 can have up to 12 channels (to be specified when ordering) and features a 3.5 inch TFT touchscreen and an easy-to-navigate menu. The user is able to set data sampling rates (up to 1million/second), input ranges and resolution and alarm levels, on a channel-by-channel basis or across all channels.

The system is designed to work with Monitran’s accelerometers and velocity sensors but it can also accommodate most other sensor types including those for measuring temperature, pressure, displacement and proximity. It can also accept a voltage or current as input, and raw signals are made available at BNCs on the front panel.

As standard the MTN/5000 has 12 digital I/O channels which can be used for multiple alarms or as a communication channel for integration with other systems. Also, as an optional extra, the system can be fitted with Modbus TCP/IP, for networking purposes or to enable multiple MTN/5000s to operate together within a larger monitoring or control system.

Andy Anthony, Managing Director of Monitran, comments: “With the MTN/5000 we’re providing engineers with a versatile tool that can provide a picture of the health of plant and equipment, raise alarms and indicate when further investigation may be warranted.”

The MTN/5000 system is made to order and, in addition to specifying how many input channels the MTN/5000 should have, the user can request front panel customisation, such as asset numbering. The system requires an input voltage of 24V DC and the enclosure dimensions, including glands, are 372 x 250 x 200mm.

Anthony concludes: “The MTN/5000’s ease-of-use is remarkable. It is a turnkey solution and you don’t need to be a condition monitoring expert to get the system up and running and protecting plant and process assets.”
