Dytran Instruments, Inc. and technology development partner Sage Machinery Diagnostics, LLC announce the premiere of our CAN-MD® Gateway along with live demos at HAI’s 2018 Heli Expo in Las Vegas February 27th- March 1st at Booth N4923 . See this disruptive technology in person.
The Technology: HUMS in a Sensor
CAN-MD® (Controller Area Network – Machinery Diagnostic) is a bus-based digital sensor technology platform from the Dytran/Sage team. CAN-MD® sensors combine two engineering disciplines – vibration sensing and digital signal processing (DSP) to enable a radical next generation technology that turns every sensor into a stand-alone data processor that provides distributed processing and health monitoring of critical rotating components across the airframe.
The innovative sensor-based HUMS platform turns raw data into actionable outcomes at each sensor location; it is the next breakthrough in airborne distributed processing. CAN-MD® sensors self-process wide dynamic range vibration data into Condition Indicators (CI’s) inside the sensor, then transmit the CI’s via a digital data bus.
Processing the dynamic signals inside the sensors reduces the bandwidth of the information to “byte-size” pieces of fully processed information turning “Big Data” into small data. Aside from internally CAN-MD® enabled accelerometers, system integration currently supports analog IEPE vibration sensors, optical & magnetic tachometers and high temperature engine monitoring sensors via additional CAN-MD® bus adapters. The CAN-MD® platform is expandable to convert any analog sensor to a bussed environment including popular optical rotor blade track sensors. The CAN-MD® platform enables different sensing technologies to be brought to a single, configurable, “sensor fusion” domain where every sensor can see and receive information from any sensor on the bus and perform new calculations based on this information.
The Demo: Cloud Based Asset Monitoring Made Easy
The Dytran/Sage Team will show you how easy it is to get CAN-MD® diagnostic information to the cloud via the simple, affordable CAN-MD® Gateway and how this device would integrate well with many ground based engine and gearbox test cells in addition to airborne applications.
