“Automated Commissioning gives OEMs and end-users the ability to carry out the maintenance and commissioning process. This results in a repeatable, consistent process that’s faster and reduces total lifetime cost of ownership,” said Richard Jayawant, Director of Engineering at Waukesha Magnetic Bearings. “Automated Commissioning further establishes Waukesha Magnetic Bearing’s commitment to leading the bearing industry with innovation and reliability that continues to meet our customers’ needs.”

By taking an OEM or end-user engineer through the commissioning process in a highly structured sequence, Waukesha’s Automated Commissioning System can allow a magnetic bearing system to be commissioned into operation without the presence of an active magnetic bearing (AMB) specialist. Featuring computer-based automation, the Automated Commissioning System is much faster than hands-on commissioning procedures. The system’s computer automation delivers automatic collection and archiving of essential data, which ensures reduced time required for planned maintenance.

The Automated Commissioning System software is capable of monitoring machine progress and recording measurements as soon as the machine is ready, which minimizes measurement time. Multiple readings can be collected within a few seconds to ensure an accurate assessment. The Automated Commissioning System is available on Elephanta®, Chinook®, and Zephyr® magnetic bearing systems. The system will provide faster commissioning by providing end-users with automatic checks after maintenance, independent of the OEM. Providing a path toward true machine prognostics, in addition to reduced site time, cost and reduced need for an AMB specialist, the Automated Commissioning System will ensure rapid identification for the degradation of machine performance and the ability to consistently tune repeat units.

Automated Commissioning is suitable for initial-build (OEM), end-user installation and maintenance work. It provides the OEM with an ability to commission and maintain independently, providing quicker commissioning on first-of-class machines.
