m+p Coda is a versatile monitoring system that captures and records signals coming from sensors such as accelerometers, thermocouples, strain gauges, and pressure transducers. Limit checking and alarm monitoring is provided for every active channel. The active channels are clearly displayed in a separate window, out-of-limit data can be seen at a glance. Alarm events are entered into a log file and can be reviewed at any time. You have the option to change the alarm limits online at any time without stopping the data acquisition.

Application Examples

  • Monitoring of Piping Systems

The mandatory inspection of piping systems in power plants is challenging because of their length and the severe environmental conditions. The networked monitoring system consists of the m+p Coda acquisition software installed on a standard PC and DAQ instruments which are located directly at the pipes. m+p Coda supports hundreds of channels to measure and monitor the thermal expansion, temperature, pressure, vibration and weight of the pipes. These measurements are taken by using thermocouples, LVDT (Linear Variable Differential Transformer) sensors, pressure transducers and strain gauge load cells.

  • Multi-Channel Monitoring of Turbocompressors

Turbocompressors for the oil, gas and process industries undergo comprehensive testing. m+p Coda is used for continuous data acquisition and real-time monitoring of performance data and thermodynamic parameters. Several compressors can be tested in parallel. To meet different demands, m+p Coda is available as a high-channel count stationary system as well as a rugged mobile system for acquisition and monitoring under original conditions at customers’ sites.

  • Vibration Monitoring during Shaker Test

Vibration tests must be safe and reliable and this is especially true for high value specimens. m+p Coda captures and records signals such as acceleration, temperature and strain during vibration tests, irrespective of the vibration control system in use. It allows you to set alarm limits for test shutdown or a warning on any of the active channels. Specimen and shaker are reliably protected, e.g. against misconfiguration or defective sensors.
