Intelliguard

Hydraulic Power Unit Health Monitoring System

Intelliguard is an intelligent hydraulic power unit (HPU) health monitoring system consisting of temperature, level and particle sensors as well as a programmable controller. These components will work together to inform the HPU owner of the status of the HPU’s fluid condition and alert them to trends indicating potential problem areas. Intelliguard can be tied into the existing machine and/or plant control system to provide automated alerts of impending trouble. In addition, visual indicators will be provided to provide at-a-glance HPU health status.

Varnish & Damage Due to Burned Oil

Monitoring HPU fluid temperature is important to prevent component failures. As hydraulic fluid temperatures exceed 140°F, the fluid starts to break down, decreasing the fluid’s wear protection properties. The results, if left unchecked, are component damage and erratic system performance.

Varnish damage caused by burned oil causes costly failures in HPU components and leads to lengthy downtime. Intellimotion’s new Intelliguard System is a multi-stage system that offers several levels of monitoring in order to prevent the costly damage to a HPU caused by poor fluid conditions.

Controls

Machines, equipment and processes require some form of controls. Intellimotion is well suited to provide from concept to design and implementation of your control system needs and requirements.

Controls Systems

PLC control, PC based systems, or simple relay logic systems can be applied to control systems based on needs, complexity, performance and support requirements. Intellimotion will help select the system and platform that is best for your system needs.

Technology allows us to apply bus networked, wireless, web based or traditional designed and wired systems to best support the application. Ethernet, Ethernet IP, Profibus, CAN, J1939, and many other intelligent and network systems are available based on environment, layout, speed, determinism and other factors when designing a system. Our experience leads us to provide the right technology for your application.

Integrated Motion Control Systems

Utilizing Advantech’s WebOp series operator interface, Intellimotion has successfully developed integrated motion control systems. The multiple communication protocol options on the WebOp HMI allows for integration of controllers from multiple manufacturers without the need for separate communication protocol converters.

Typical Applications

A typical application will involve a PLC from a manufacturer such as Allen-Bradley or WAGO and a dedicated motion controller from Delta Computer Systems. Systems offer communication protocols via Ethernet I/P or Modbus TCP.

WebOp Advantage

The WebOp HMI bridges the gap between the various devices allowing us to eliminate the need for physical I/O connections to trigger motion commands or pass position parameters between controllers. This information is now passed between controllers via the Ethernet connection, allowing for smaller PLC and motion controller configurations as well as a dramatically simplified system design. In addition, the WebOp provides the ability to monitor various status registers in the Delta Computer Systems motion controller, permitting faster diagnostic and troubleshooting of an electro-hydraulic motion control system, without the need for connecting a technician's computer to the control system. The HMI offers evaluation of system performance by providing data on actuator position and velocity, valve command, status and error bits, etc. Performance parameters are also easily accessible on the HMI allowing operators to quickly adjust motion profiles.

For a cleaner, more efficient and powerful system design, consider including an Advantech WebOp operator interface in your next motion control system.
