|RPM-based waterfall of an overcritical rotating shaft.|
The rpm-based waterfall is a FFT expanded with the rpm-axis of a rotating shaft. The basic requirement for this function is a rotational incremental encoder mounted on the shaft. The TX-System synchronises the incremental signal with the eddy position. The correlation of rotational speed and FFT results in a characteristic three-dimensional plot. The plot may characterise the state of a rotating system depending on loads, oil-pressure, wear and similar aspects. This admits comparisons of the same system at different times under varying conditions. Figure 8 is the rpm based waterfall of a shaft with a resonance frequency
of 6000 rpm. The amplitude peaks along the ascending and descending path of the rotational speed.
