FlexPro Order Tracking analysis option
Perform an order tracking analysis for speed-dependent vibrations quickly and easily. Order tracking evaluates vibrations or noise of rotating machines. Here, the frequencies in the spectrum are related to the respective speed and represented as orders.
With the method used in FlexPro, signals sampled over time are first transformed into the revolution range (revolution-synchronous resampling). Using FFT spectral analysis or bandpass filtering in the revolution domain, FlexPro then effectively calculates order spectra and order curves.
Run-up analyses, order analyses at constant speed and order analyses with varying speed are supported. The speed can also be specified as a pulse signal with a fixed number of pulses per revolution. All implemented methods are flexible and robust against noise in the speed signal.
