SETPOINT Machinery Protection System - Overview

The SETPOINT system features up to 56 channels of vibration monitoring or 84 channels of temperature and process variable monitoring in any mix.  4-, 8-, and 16-slot rack sizes provide maximum flexibility with options for panel, 19” EIA, and bulkhead mounting.  

An optional door and touchscreen display can be mounted such that wiring can land on the front or back of the rack, maximizing installation flexibility.

Features & Benefits

Deep experience
The SETPOINT team possesses deep experience gained through developing and sustaining more than four generations of successive API 670-compliant machinery protection systems.  We pay attention to every detail, ensuring the system works the way you need it to work in the real world – where details matter.

Robust, rugged construction
The SETPOINT rack chassis is constructed entirely of industrial‐grade anodized aluminum and stainless steel – every card guide, every faceplate, every rack panel. In addition to excellent RFI/EMI rejection, these materials are built to last while maintaining their good looks. The SETPOINT system looks professional because it is professional.

Easily adaptable mounting
The SETPOINT system’s design allows the same rack to be used in panel cutout, 19” EIA, or bulkhead mounting configurations by simply employing different rack brackets.  The chassis, backplane, and all modules remain the same. This also means that you don’t sacrifice valuable space when bulkhead mounting – unlike systems that require twice as much space for bulkhead mounting compared to rack or panel mounting.  

High quality, highspeed backplane
The SETPOINT system uses state-of-the-art backplane connectors and high-speed design techniques to facilitate ultra‐fast data throughput and outstanding reliability.

Full color, backlit touchscreen
With the SETPOINT system’s optional touchscreen, users have at-a-glance, real-time visibility of every channel and status in the rack on a single screen – no scrolling, no multiplexing. We worked closely with users to ensure the system’s display was intuitive, efficient, and attractive, with a rapid update time so there’s no annoying wait for the screen to refresh with current values. It’s also easy to see under all lighting conditions – including outdoors. And, because it uses resistive (not capacitive) technology, it works with fingers, gloves, and stylus.
