VC-8000 Condition Monitoring Solution

Get more value out of machine vibration.

Take your machinery protection system to the next level with condition monitoring.

VC-8000 is our flagship critical machinery protection system, giving you deeper insights into your rotating machinery assets. Do you realize that your vibration data contains much more value than just machinery protection? Even if your machines are protected, this is no guarantee against losses in uptime or productivity during an unplanned shutdown.

Simply add SETPOINT® CMS software to your machinery protection system and turn your investment into measurable value.

Highlights:

  • Already have VC-8000 hardware? No need to add or exchange any hardware.
  • Already have another protection system? That’s OK: Simply add the VC-8000 hardware and SETPOINT® CMS software.
  • Is your VC-8000 already installed in the field? That’s also OK: The VC-8000 MPS set-up software covers this, or if needed our technical support team can do the set-up for you!
  • Do you already monitor auxiliary machines or Balance of Plant equipment with other hardware – such as the VCM-3? That’s great: You can easily connect that to SETPOINT® CMS software.

A plant-wide Condition Monitoring Solution – improve uptime from your critical and auxiliary machines by upgrading to condition monitoring today.
