A comprehensive online condition monitoring software solution that connects directly to the SETPOINT® machinery protection system without need of any additional intervening hardware. It provides powerful visualization tools such as timebase, orbit, spectrum, bode, polar, shaft centerline, multi-variable trend, and other plot types specific to rotating and reciprocating machinery, allowing online condition monitoring analysis and machinery diagnostics. And, it uses the OSIsoft® PI System at its core, meaning many of our customers can use their existing process historian rather buying stand-alone condition monitoring software.

The SETPOINT® System made its debut at the 2010 Texas A&M Turbo Symposium.  Since that time, it has grown in acclaim and adoption by customers around the world. The pedigree of its designers reads like a who's who of the vibration monitoring world.  Indeed, the same people that designed SETPOINT® hardware and software also designed a large portion of Bently Nevada's product portfolio including the 3300, 1900, 2201, 3701, and 3500 series monitoring systems, System 1 software, 990 transmitters, NSv probes, ADRE® data acquisition systems, and Trendmaster® monitoring systems. 

The SETPOINT® product line and its people were acquired from Roper Technologies by Brüel and Kjær Vibro in May, 2017, and the system now serves as the company's flagship offering for both machinery protection and condition monitoring applications outside of the windpower sector.  SETPOINT® products are engineered and manufactured at Brüel and Kjær Vibro's Minden, Nevada operations.  Sales and service is via Brüel and Kjær Vibro's extensive network of factory-direct and sales partner offices.
