Vibration transmitters monitor, measure, and alert workers of the earliest warning signs of machinery failure. Using such technology for industrial applications provides workers with the ability to fix a machine well before it breaks down and causes significant internal damage to the bearings, gears, blades and more. Not only this, but the vibration transmitters also provide personal protection for both critical assets and plant personnel, establishing a safe environment.

Other features of vibration monitoring include being explosion-proof and weatherproof, remote mounted and visual display. Accident occur in industrial environments, we all understand that, what we want to offer is trending data way before the machine would ever approach a critical vibration condition, you can rest assured your machinery will not cause any harm or break down.

How It Works

The machinery protection system monitors vibration of your bearing or shaft position. When the system determines that the machine’s vibration measurements are elevated and getting closer to an unsafe condition, it provides a 4-20 mA conditioned output, low and high level alarms and raw signal output to the customers DCS/HMI/SCADA System on readings. If the system determines the machine is not working correctly, it will shut it down automatically. Such rotating machinery that can be protected includes generators, compressors, fans, blowers, motors and pumps.
