GE has introduced the Proficy SmartSignal Shield 4.0 software for the Oil & Gas and Power industries. The Shield software helps large equipment operators detect equipment problems early and avoid surprise equipment failure.

The Shield 4.0 software, protected by more than 40 patents, was developed based on shared blind data from GE customers.

The Shield software’s diagnostic algorithms combine observations on multiple individual sensors to pinpoint failure effects. Beyond vibration and thermal analyses, the solution also models all data on all critical rotating and non-rotating equipment. The solution monitors equipment automatically 24 hours/day.
