One of the leaders in vibration monitoring technologies is working to bring the integration benefits of OSIsoft’s PI System to wind turbine condition monitoring—a process that traditionally requires a separate architecture to handle the high bandwidth coming from vibration sensors.

Randy Chitwood, vice president of Nevada-based SETPOINT, says that within the next 18 to 24 months, SETPOINT plans to take its existing hardware for wind turbine condition monitoring and engineer an edge device that will stream vibration data directly into OSIsoft’s PI System. The company already offers this kind of interface technology for other energy systems that rely on vibration sensors to monitor the health of rotating equipment.
