Easy-Laser® E420 - Shaft alignment
Easy-Laser® E420 is an entry level shaft alignment system, with features you would normally only find in more expensive systems. With E420 you can carry out the following:
The measuring units are incredibly compact featuring wireless technology, an integrated rechargeable battery and large 20 mm TruePSD detectors. This means that they are easy to install on most types of machines, even where there is limited space. The wireless technology gives you full freedom of movement around the machine that is to be aligned.
Programs for alignment of both horizontal and vertical machines are included. Added to that are functions for soft foot control, thermal growth compensation and tolerance control.
The measurement system is very easy to use. Pre-mounted units make it easy to install on the machine and the programs guide you step-by-step through the process. Start with the measuring units positioned anywhere on the shaft, recording three readings with as little as 20° of rotation between readings. Then adjust the machine with the live values, and save the measurements in the display unit memory. You can also transfer the results to the database EasyLink ™ program (included) for PC. Easy-Laser® E420 has everything an entry level system should have, and more.
The featured programs below are the most common used with this system. Please click here for a complete overview of possibilities.
Horizontally mounted machines often consist of a pump and a motor, but can also include other types of machines such as gearboxes and compressors. Regardless of the machine type, it is easy to measure and align with Easy-Laser®. The measuring units (M and S) are easily mounted on each side of the coupling and communicate with the display unit wireless. Then follow the step-by-step instructions on screen.
This program is used for alignment of vertical and flange-mounted machines, e.g. pumps, motors, gear boxes. Shows centre offset, angular error and shim value at each bolt.
Alignment work begins with a soft foot check. The soft foot check ensures that the machine is resting evenly on all its feet by indicating which foot/feet should be adjusted. This is an important part of securing a reliable alignment. After the soft foot check is complete, you can go directly to the alignment program with all of the machine’s distance values saved.
The Values program can be used e.g. when one wants to measure as with dial gauges and to check bearing play or shaft load. With the standard equipment and completely normal set up on the machine!
Measurement points are recorded at fixed points 9, 12 and 3 o’clock. This is the classic three-point method which can be used in most cases.
The EasyTurn™ function allows you to begin the measurement process from anywhere on the turn. You can turn the shaft to any three positions with as little as 20° between each position to register the measurement values. Voila! Measurement is complete!
An advanced electronic filter function can be used to achieve reliable results even under poor measuring conditions. Air turbulence and vibrations from adjacent machines are no match for the Easy-Laser® filter function!
This function allows you to adjust machines in real time with the measuring units positioned anywhere on the shaft. It is ideal for situations in which outside objects interfere with normal positioning.
The software can adjust to machine designs of all types such as those with two pairs of feet, three pairs of feet, and feet in front of the coupling, etc.
Oftentimes, machines expand considerably when moving from a cold to hot operating temperature. The Thermal Growth Compensation function allows the measurement system to calculate the appropriate shims and values needed to make adjustments in such cases. Compensation values for the machines are normally supplied by the manufacturers.
Measurement results can be checked against pre-defined tolerance tables or values you determine yourself. This allows you to immediately see if the alignment is within the approved parameters, thereby considerably reducing the amount of time spent on alignment.
Save measurement files as templates, with machine data and settings, to quickly start measurements.
The software is available in 14 languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Polish, Russian, Swedish, Finnish, Brazilian Portugese, Japanese, Korean, Chinese (traditional and simplified).
With the EasyLink™ database program you can save and organise all your measurements in one place, produce reports with both data and images and export to your maintenance systems. You can customise what your Excel reports should look like and what data should be visible and where it should be positioned. The program has a clear folder structure, where you drag and drop files from the display unit to the database. Create your own structure with folders for manufacturer, department or machine type for example. The database can also be located on a common server and shared with other users. For extra safety you can use EasyLink™ to make backups of what you have saved in the display unit.
Save your files to USB and copy to other devices.
Save all measurements in the display unit’s internal memory.
Quickly print all measurement data locally with a thermal printer (accessory).
The display unit has a thin, easy-to-grip rubber coated exterior for secure handling. The large well-spaced panel buttons correspond to clear graphics that guide you through the measurement process with ease. Water and dust proof to class IP65.
Choose the language that you want to appear on screen. English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Swedish, Finnish, Russian, Dutch, Polish, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Chinese are available.
The measuring units have large detectors (TruePSD) that allow you to measure from distances up to 3 metres (10 feet). The substantial design made of aluminium and stainless steel guarantees precise measurement and reliable alignment in even the toughest environments. The measuring units are water and dust proof to class IP65.
The measuring units are connected to the display unit wirelessly, which gives you full freedom to move around your machines with the display unit!
For charging, connect the two measuring units to the display unit with the supplied splitter cable. This way you can also supply the measuring units with power during measurement, if needed.
