Webinar: Not Your Granddad's Machinery Protection System. Machinery

protection systems are generally thought of as a necessity that acts as an "earthquake switch"
for your critical machinery. Often, these systems are stranded in hard-to-reach areas and are
not connected to the plant's data processes. They are typically hard to configure and require
many spare parts to deal with the different types of signals. This webinar addresses new
technologies that are emerging to deliver valuable predictive data from the protection system,
making it a contributor to improving plant and asset reliability.

these days for mobile access/monitoring capability. In our latest
podcast, editorial director Gary L. Parr discusses mobile technology
with Schneider Electric's Kim Custeau. The wide-ranging conversation
explores, among other things, the current status of mobile technology,
where it's having a big impact, next steps to implementation, and
what lies in the future. maintenancetechnology.com/1707mobile

Today's sophisticated machinery and operations are no longer
best served by time-based lubrication practices. In this month's
article (p. 35), lubrication expert Ken Bannister discusses the
need to move to a condition-based approach. In the podcast that
accompanies the article, he explains, in more detail, what this
means and how to establish a condition-based lubrication system.
