Piezoelectric Accelerometer monitors rolling element bearings.

October 30, 2013

Combining accelerometer and 4–20 mA transmitter in single housing, Bearing Fault Detector PLUS Model 649A03 provides 5 specialized outputs that, when used with control system, deliver early warning of bearing defects such as cracked races, brinelling, looseness, and spalling. Scaled output can be used to both trend data and trigger vibration alarms in PLC or DCS to closely monitor when machinery should be shut down and bearing should be replaced. Read More

Electronic Vibration Switch is rated for hazardous locations.

May 22, 2013

Model EX686B USB programmable electronic vibration switch is certified by INMETRO for use in hazardous areas such as petroleum refineries, utility gas plants, and oil drilling operations. To provide continuous machinery protection, unit senses vibration and triggers alarm or shuts down machine if vibration exceeds given threshold level. Faults such as imbalance, misalignment, looseness, worn bearings, cracked gears, or lack of lubrication can trigger fault. Read More

High-Temperature Accelerometers suit gas turbine applications.

April 11, 2013

Along with respective sensitivities of 100 and 10 mV/g, EX600B13 and EX600B14 have frequency range of 282–240,000 cpm (4.7–4,000 Hz) and are suited for vibration measurement in areas of up to 900°F. Single assembly design – 10 ft, hermetically sealed, hard-line cable; side-exit charge mode sensor; and inline charge amplifier – eliminates contamination and common mode noise concerns. Drop-in replacement for existing accelerometers is made possible via ARINC® 3-point mounting bases. Read More
