We are a Swiss company providing protection, monitoring and diagnostics systems for rotating machines used in the power generation industry. Founded in 1993, we are now renowned worldwide for the reliability and quality of its product. We are also very proud to serve a large amount of end-users, as well as engineering, consulting and service companies.
We provide monitoring solutions for hydroelectric machines, large turbo-generator, gearless mill drives, gearless windmills and other industrial rotating machines. Our domain of expertise covers the condition monitoring of parameters such as bearing and shaft vibration, end-winding vibration, stator core and stator bar vibrations, magnetic flux monitoring, air gap and partial discharge as well other electrical and process parameters.
A wide experience and knowledge of machinery coupled with high quality products and services enable us to offer cost efficient systems meeting high level customer requirements. Thanks to our innovative spirit, we offer original and effective future oriented solutions in our domain of expertise
Your partner of choice
We engage to assist demanding customers
We help companies to ensure asset integrity and efficiency
Our sensing technology is based on state of the art precision sensors, manufactured in Switzerland by our highly qualified personal.
MCm's acquisition systems are cost effective and simple to use. Our experienced engineers designed them to process data using different monitoring solutions for effective machine protection (MPS) and for condition monitoring (CMS).
The condition monitoring provides relevant information in order to ensure accurate machine diagnostic and analysis.
MCm's communication interface is a logical result of our philosophy, which grants for open, reliable and secured interfaces.
...and customise it to your needs
Each machine and each customer are different and we profoundly respect their individuality. Whether you have one single machine needing simple monitoring system or a complex infrastructure with multiple machines requiring sophisticated monitoring solutions, we are your partner.
For us, customising means also that your existing infrastructure can benefit from the high quality data we deliver through our open and extended interfaces.
Our expertise at your service
The selection of the right sensor is crucial for successful implementation of monitoring systems. We can guide you in this difficult task. Operational environment is especially important. MC-m provides special sensors like airgap, fiberoptic or magnetic flux, which can be installed inside high electrical and magnetic fields. Our runner clearance probes are specially designed to be resistant to abrasion.
Sensors characteristics must be suitable for the environmental physical properties. The sensitivity and the frequency range are important parameters to consider. Electrodynamic sensors are well suitable for the measurement of low frequency signals. However, piezoelectric sensors shall be used for the measurement of wide dynamic range of signals.
