Shaft Alignment Tool XT550 Ex

Do you need an intrinsically safe laser shaft alignment system for hazardous environments that is simple and can be used by all your staff? Is your objective to achieve a precision shaft alignment that is within tolerance and documented? Do you need a system that is packed with functions but is still at an affordable price?

If yes, then the XT550 Ex Shaft Alignment Tool is for you! It’s our most popular shaft system for petrochemical and oil & gas industries and we guarantee you wont regret buying this system. Read on or call us and we can tell you about it.

 

 

Intrinsically Safe, Rugged Design

The Easy-Laser® XT550 Shaft Alignment Tool’s measuring units and the ecom Tab-Ex® tablet are approved in accordance with the latest ATEX directives – this means the system is intrinsically safe for explosive or hazardous environments. These parts are also built with a rugged design and have been tested and approved to an IP rating of both IP66 and IP67 – water, dust and shock-proof. With that and the measuring units’ superior performance in sunlight, this guarantees you will be able to take on and finish even the toughest jobs.

 

 

User-Friendly

Finish each alignment with an automatic report on your “as found” and “as left” measurements results. You can type in any comments into the Notes section and easily create a PDF report containing all measurement data. Or why not share it (e-mail) right from the display with the included Wi-Fi? The ecom Tab-Ex® tablet also comes with a camera so you can photograph the machines identification tag and a picture of the machine for your report.

 

 

More Measurement Capabilities

The XT550 Ex measuring units utilize dot laser technology. This makes it possible to measure larger machine spans than the line laser systems. Perform precision shaft to shaft alignments (horizontal and vertical machines) up to 20 meters (66 feet)! New measurement methods like Multipoint and Continuous Sweep gives you options for any alignment application, not to mention it provides higher accuracy & repeatability when backlash is present from gearboxes or couplings. The XT550 Ex also allows you to check more things when installing a machine, e.g. twist of foundation, bearing clearance and machine stress.

 

 

Comprehensive Documentation

This huge touch screen display is glove friendly and works just like your phone or tablet. Its tap and go right at your finger tips. The intuitive user interface guides you through the measurement process. Use the ATEX-approved and intrinsically-safe ecom Tab-Ex® tablet, or install the free XT Alignment app on your iOS or Android device. You are not locked-in to a specific way of working. With the app there are no license hassles either, only free updates!

Display Data on Multiple Platforms

Based on the Samsung GALAXY Tab Active, ecom´s hazardous area tablet is certified for use in Zone 1/21 & DIV 1 hazardous areas. The tablet is wireless, has an 8” colour touchscreen, comes with a built-in camera, connects to WiFi and has 11 hour continuous battery life! Or use your own tablet or phone with the free Easy-Laser XT app. Try it today, the choice is yours!          

Measuring Units with Dot-Laser Technology

The ATEX-approved wireless measuring units use a dot-laser technology which makes it possible to measure longer machine spans than line laser systems and the ability to measure base twist. They come pre-mounted with chains and rods, can operate in -10 to 50 degrees C temperature with superior performance in sunlight and with the new and improved batteries can operate for up to 20 hours straight!

Measurement Features

Easy-Laser XT550 Ex

The XT550 Ex comes stocked with many different measurement programs, functions and measurement methods to give you the best possible alignment result. Click each tab to learn about each one!

Softfoot Check
Softfoot Check

Start the shaft alignment work by performing a soft foot check to ensure the machine is resting evenly on all its feet. This is necessary for a reliable shaft alignment. The program shows which foot (feet) should be corrected. After the soft foot check is complete you can go directly to the alignment program with all of the machines distances saved.

Horizontal Machines (XT)
Horizontal Machines (XT)

For the shaft alignment of horizontal machines. The user interface is intuitive and guides you through the measurement process. It is animated and zooms into the most important things for each step. You can save the measurements of a machine for As found and As left in the same file.

Machine Base Twist
Machine Base Twist

Machine Base Twist – The twist measurement program allows you to check the flatness or twist of the machine foundation using only the measuring units in the system.

Values - Digital Dial Indicator (XT)
Values - Digital Dial Indicator (XT)

The extremely useful Values program can be used as a digital dial indicator as live time readings are shown on the S- and M- units. It has a clear digital representation of the laser target, and a list view for recorded values. For example, you are able to check for bearing play or shaft load by electronically zeroing the units and then moving the machine to see what movement occurs.

Vertical/Flange-Mounted Machines
Vertical/Flange-Mounted Machines

For the shaft alignment of vertical and flange-mounted machines. Just like the horizontal machines program for shaft alignment, the user interface is intuitive and guides you through the measurement process.

Machine Train (3)
Machine Train (3)

For alignment of up to three machines, each one coupled together (2 couplings). You can pick the reference machine manually, or let the program choose one that will minimize the need for adjustments and give you the optimal move.

Vibration (XT)
Vibration (XT)

Using the vibration program you can diagnose vibration levels, imbalance, misalignment and looseness. The direct readout of 1x, 2x, 3x RPM, total level as well as bearing condition provides necessary information during installation and alignment. (Requires the Vibration Measurement Tool XT280 accessory.)

Belt Alignment (XT)
Belt Alignment (XT)

Using this program you can align sheaves and pulleys with digital precision. Adjustment of the machines is displayed in real time on the screen, with readings for angle and axial displacement in both the vertical and horizontal axes, as well as an adjustment value for the front or rear foot pair. The result can be documented as normal. (Requires the Pulley Alignment Tool XT190 BTA accessory.)

Continuous Sweep
Continuous Sweep

Automatic recording of measurement values during continuous sweep (or rotation) of the shaft. Hundreds of points are registered. You can start anywhere on the turn. Often used when shaft is difficult to stop. Quality check of measurement is provided.

Multipoint measurement
Multipoint measurement

For advanced applications like non-rotatable shafts, shafts with sliding bearings or critical machines, such as turbine alignment, there is a Multipoint measurement method. In this method, any number of measuring points around the shafts rotation can be registered. Included in this method is a Quality Assessment scale which can help you achieve the best possible result during alignment.

EasyTurn™ (XT)
EasyTurn™ (XT)

A measurement method for shaft alignment (also referred to as coupling alignment) of horizontal machines. You can be­gin the measurement process from any­where on the turn. You can turn the shaft to any three positions with as little as 20° between each position to register the measurement values.

9–12–3
9–12–3

Measurement points are recorded at fixed points 9, 12 and 3 o’clock. This is the classic three-point method which can be used in most cases.

Tolerance Check (XT)
Tolerance Check (XT)

Measurement results can be checked against pre-defined (industry standard) tolerance tables, the new ANSI Shaft Alignment standard tolerances or values you determine yourself.

Thermal Growth
Thermal Growth

Automatically compensate for thermal expansion of the machines.

Measurement Value Filter
Measurement Value Filter

Improve readings when measuring conditions are poor.

Multiple Sets OF Feet
Multiple Sets OF Feet

Align machines with more than two
pairs of feet.
