Istec RecipSys 200

The RecipSys 200 is a compact monitoring system for reciprocating compressors. It delivers precise real-time data of rider band wear, eliminating the need for periodic production shutdowns to do manual inspections. The transmitter-based system is affordable and extends the range of compressors which can be monitored.

Design Concept

RecipSys 200 is designed as an independent layer of protection; It removes the needs for bulky 19" vibration racks and delivers lightning quick and reliable protection, while complying to the latest industry standards.

Compact System

The module is housed in a small DIN rail mountable housing and is fully functional as an independent monitoring system outside your DCS system.

Input signals

  • Dual-channel rod drop monitoring
  • 2x Rod position: 3 wire eddy current
  • 1x Tacho (phase trigger): 3 wire eddy current

Output signals

  • 2x analog output
  • 2x raw signal output
  • 1x trigger signal
  • 3x relay output

Istec RecipSys 200

Any compressor

The transmitter based system has a small financial impact and enables extending monitoring coverage to any reciprocating compressor.

Increased uptime

The compact monitoring system eliminates the need for periodic production shutdowns for manual inspections, lowering downtime.

Any configuration

The system is expandable to any cylinder configuration, compatible with any sensor brand and integrable to any existing monitoring system.


Phase-triggered accuracy

The monitoring system filters the displacement signal to the right phase angle, to provide a reliable measurement for compressors with fixed or variable RPM. The triggered signal ensures the accuracy as opposed to overall measurements.

Suite integration

The monitoring system includes two industry-standard analogue (4-20 mA) outputs to enable integration with any monitoring suite.


How it works
