ATC primary surveillance radars produced by our company are located in different parts of the world. To make their maintenance easier and have a perfect knowledge of their condition, a unique online condition & maintenance system has been developed.
- on a continuous basis remotely monitors condition of radar vital mechanical parts
- allows to detect rising problems
- prevents problems like breakdown, wear & tear and other hazardous situations
- enables to také corrective actions and plan predictive maintenance
- improves radar performance and its operating efficiency
- contributes to increased life of radar mechanical parts
- reduces maintenance costs by avoiding unplanned maintenance
- provides immediate information/warning to operating personnel
- allows to communicate via web interface
- measuring computer
- control computer with special software
The measured data are evaluated, compared with limit values and subsequently stored. A significant tool applied during this process are FFT algorithms. The data serve as a base for computing development trends of the values in individual units of the mechanism.
Mechanical parts on which the values are measured are those providing the most reliable and precise information about the current condition of the radar. Among them rank antenna main bearing, gearboxes, motors and rotary joint.
Example of antenna drive monitoring
On the basis of signals received from vibration, temperature and oil level sensors, the system evaluates the working condition of the antenna drive. The signals are processed in the evaluation unit of the controller. Based on the actual condition, a piece of information is issued at the following levels: Operation O.K., Warning, Alarm (drive switched off).
If limits for safe operation are exceeded, the operator will receive a warning on a non-standard situation requesting special attention. The data on drive condition, vibrations and temperature inside the cabin are transmitted into CMS
(Control & Monitoring System) and BITE (Built In Test Equipment) which are part of the radar.
perFEKT JobFair 2017 29.6.2017 - The recruitment team of RAMET a.s. company took part in the perFEKT JobFair which took place on 27th April 2017 at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Communication, Brno University of Technology. The company presented its technologies and product portfolio to attract students interested in the field of research and development. The response did not take a long time, several students have showed interest and a few have already participated in a job interview.
!IMPORTANT!: Statement on alleged cooperation with Right Rise Ltd. 21.2.2017 - In recent days we have been contacted with many questions inquiring about our cooperation with Right Rise Ltd., a company based in U.K. We hereby declare that we have never had any cooperation, contract, partnership or any other relationship with this company. Also, no products from our portfolio have ever been supplied to them. Any data informing about alleged cooperation of that company with RAMET a.s. and deliveries of RAMER10 T speed cameras or any other products manufactured by our company are misleading.
