ME’scopeMSS – Overview

What is ME’scopeMSS?

The ME’scopeMSS Machine Surveillance Series is a network- based series of software packages and options that includes all of the tools you need to remotely monitor a wide variety of rotating machinery and structures. This series utilizes the time-tested ME’scope software as its foundation. Designed as a network-based machinery monitoring and preventative maintenance solution, the Machine Surveillance Series combines all the capabilities of a professional noise & vibration analysis software package with the simplicity of a red light–green light monitoring system.

With any ME’scopeMSS package, you can continuously acquire, post-process, archive, display, and analyze vibration, acoustic, temperature, pressure, voltage/current, flow rate, or any type of process variable from any type or rotating or reciprocating machinery. Each ME’scopeMSS package includes the following,

  • A secure machine-based archival Database which can located either on a local computer, on a local area network, or in the cloud on the Internet
  • Trend plots of all archived data
  • Trace plots of all archived time waveforms or frequency spectra
  • 6 user-definable warning levels for each monitored parameter
  • Warning levels can also be applied over frequency or time spans
  • Event log for documenting all warning level violations
  • Email or phone text message notification of all warning level violations
  • User definable short-term and long-term archival storage of monitored parameters
  • User definable pre & post-event storage of monitored parameters
  • A Gauge assigned to each parameter displaying current & baseline values, and warning levels

The ME’scopeMSS software can also be housed in a Vibrant Portable Hardware carrying case and located near the monitored machinery and equipment.  A phone modem can also be used to transmit data from remote locations to the archival Database, which can be located in the cloud on the Internet. A network-based surveillance camera can also be mounted near the machine, and a live feed provided to the software.
