System 1 Asset Health Management Software 


Why asset health and condition monitoring?

The success of any process-intensive industry relies heavily on proper care and management of the machinery powering the work. Unplanned downtime or inefficient maintenance routines can reduce productivity, eat away at your profits, and increase maintenance costs.

System 1 Platform Pillars
Comprehensive Machine Data Collection

Predictive, condition-based maintenance proves challenging when critical data is scattered across varying and incompatible systems. System 1’s flexible architecture allows for broad access to machine, process and controls data. Data from Bently Nevada machinery monitoring systems combine with data from other sources in the plant to provide a holistic view of the health of your assets.

Intelligent Machine Health Data Management

Intelligent data management is the combination of two key capabilities within System 1. The first is state-based data collection, which allows data to be collected at different rates based on different machine operating modes. The second is data thinning algorithms, which periodically summarize historical data into smaller data sets with fewer data points, effectively reducing the overall storage memory requirements and ensuring storage capacity for years to come. 

Flexible and Secure Data Transfer

System 1 supports the industry-standard OPC UA protocol for export of waveforms, trends and alarm data to other data systems, data lakes and analytics platforms. Built-in data replication and data diode support allow System 1 data to be transferred securely over public and internal networks, making your data available where needed; while simplifying compliance to NERC CIP and other international cybersecurity standards.

State-Based Alarms

System 1 supports a proactive machinery monitoring strategy by detecting changes in conditions before failure occursSystem 1's state-based alarm configuration allows collected data to be compared against varying alarm levels, depending on the load and operating states of the machine.

Knowledge-Based Machine Learning

System 1’s Decision Support option helps put your staff’s years of machine learning to use with customizable rules that offer advanced insights into the behavior of your machines and process conditions.

Advanced Machine Thermodynamic Monitoring

System 1’s advanced machine condition analytics can be enhanced with Bently Performance giving users access to extensive thermodynamic and mechanical information on machine assets.

Plantwide HMI

System 1’s HMI capability allows you to create a virtual depiction of your plant assets with color-coded indicators of machine health.

Comprehensive Machine Diagnostics Tools

Vibration analysis is a complicated science. Bently Nevada has been a leader in the design of tools that allow our users to perform the necessary functions of the job: trend analysis and baselining, alarm prioritization and suppression, detailed fault and root-cause analysis, repair confirmation and setpoint management. With System 1’s asset-specific plot types, users can quickly identify machine irregularities for proactive condition-based maintenance and optimization. The machinery data you need with context and clarity.

Case Management

Case management provides the tools necessary to add notes to instances of machine damage, generate reports to communicate repair needs to the field or plant teams, and create machine audit files as archives for future reference.
