ADVANCED VIBRATION METER PROVIDES GRANULAR TRACKING

01-08-2019

The Alta advanced vibration meter from wireless sensor specialist Monnit Corporation is available in Australia and New Zealand through Metromatics.

This turnkey solution uses an accelerometer to track vibration and frequency on three axes. It captures data for vibration frequency and velocity, displacement and acceleration, and also has the ability to report duty cycle as well as temperature, providing more key metrics to protect important assets and operations.

It features a configurable frequency measurement range from 0.4 to 4800Hz (24 to 288,000rpm). Granular tracking across this vast range makes the sensor suitable for a wide range of applications in industry and civil infrastructure, from monitoring the performance of motors and smart materials in cutting-edge manufacturing facilities and identifying abnormal vibrations in high-rpm machines to tracking seismic impact on bridges and buildings.

Low crest factor values indicate smooth vibration and good motor health, while high values indicate the presence of potentially damaging harmonics or jarring forces. The precision of the data points produced helps organisations take pre-emptive action and gather valuable data for operational and end-of-life analysis.
