Mubasher: General Electric’s (GE) Baker Hughes on Wednesday said that its industrial equipment monitoring unit Bently Nevada launched a new data-processing and plant monitoring platform, according to an official statement.
The new Orbit 60 series, which connects to machinery management software marked the first intrinsically cyber-secure monitoring system with a built-in data diode.
It is also featured with proactive condition monitoring and diagnostics to secure machinery protection.
“Customers are looking for competitive machinery protection and monitoring solutions that not only will equip them with the right data and insights, but is flexible for future expansion,” Bently Nevada’s president Terry Knight said.
The Orbit 60 will offer 80 dynamic channels well above an industry average of 50, along with 100 times higher signal processing power.
The new platform complements Bently Nevada’s plant-wide ones, including its 3500 platform.
