Vibration Monitoring

Vibration Monitoring Industrial machines can now benefit from low cost vibration monitoring to provide an early warning that a machine needs attention. A sensing element, known as an accelerometer or displacement sensor is mounted on the machine and provides a response in a particular axis that can be measured. Early vibration monitoring sensors were single axis units, however the latest units are now 3-axis (x, y and z) and are … Read more

Machine and Electric Motor Monitoring

As plant efficiency can often mean the difference between profit and loss, many companies are looking to machine and electric motor monitoring to improve productivity. Machine monitoring uses a wide variety of sensors that are suited for that particular process. These can include temperature, pressure, displacement, depth, distance, flow rates etc.  Electric motor monitoring includes input voltage (per phase), input current (per phase) and temperature. In addition, vibration can offer … Read more
