PROGNOST®-SenSim is a portable device for the simulation of sensors that are used for machine monitoring.

It simulates sensors with static and dynamic signals for safety protection systems (Safety Instrumented Systems) and measuring loop test routines.

With PROGNOST®-SenSim, testing of safety protection systems procedures can be carried out without disassembly and reassembly of the sensors. This eliminates all associated risks, such as sensor damage or calibration issues.

The defined and precise violation of real safety limit settings makes the execution of PTI (Proof Test Interval) fully compliant to IEC regulatory requirements (No manipulation of safety limits to initiate Alarms / Shutdowns / Unsafe conditions).

Sensor simulation capabilities

  • Realistic simulation of all types of sensors by means of separate setting of static and dynamic signal components
  • Simulation of full sensor measuring range
  • Phased signals (TDC/BDC and 360° crank angle)
  • Produces three signals in parallel, e.g.
    • ICP + ICP + Phase reference
    • ICP + 4...20 mA + Phase reference
    • 4…20 mA + 4...20 mA + Phase reference
    • Applicable for ICP / IEPE, 4 ... 20mA, Eddy Current, Voltage
    • Eddy Current sensor simulation can also be used to produce rotating speed

PROGNOST®-SenSim simulates sensors with the following signal types:

  • 4 .. 20 mA
  • ICP / IEPE
  • Eddy Current
  • Voltage
  • Pulse (Phase reference according to Namur standard)
  • Trigger
  • Pulse
  • Strain

Realistic testing of safety protection functions and algorithms

  • 2ooX voting
  • Plausibility check
  • Count of number of consecutive revolutions of safety limit violation (phase referenced signal)

Any desired frequency and amplitude adjustable

PROGNOST®-SenSim provides unmatched options to shape signals:

  • Simulation of the sensor physic (Signal spread)
  • Definable amplitudes on every part of the revolution
  • Simulation of realistic, static and dynamic sensors up to 10kHz
