The new model BTA bearing temperature, belt alignment and motion detection system from The Boone Group, Boone, Iowa, U.S., features a bright, clear display that shows location, temperature and alarm set points, which are selected by the operator. The system's capacity of 256 bearing and belt sensors — in probe or surface style, half-moon or round disk — will complete a full scan in 160 seconds. For smaller systems, eight sensors will be scanned every five seconds. The Boone Group uses shielded thermocouple wire on all new systems. The BTA can incorporate up to eight under-speed and over-speed motion sensors by using the BTA Auxillary Motion Module. Readings can be displayed in Fahrenheit or Celcius, and data can be downloaded to a printer or computer. An automatic, internal system check ensures reliability.
