ProSense Hash Duty Vibration Transmitters

March 15, 2023

The ProSense VCT series vibration transmitters accurately detect vibrations of industrial equipment, primarily rotating equipment such as pumps, motors, compressors, and rolling mills. Vibration sensors provide early detection of developing malfunctions, allowing for timely maintenance before major damage or failure results in costly repairs and production downtime.

Vibration monitoring, also referred to as machine condition monitoring, is used to detect industrial equipment vibration which may indicate a malfunction, pending failure, or process restriction. Vibration analysis can identify developing problems, allowing for timely and predictable scheduling of maintenance before major damage or failure, and production downtime.

Vibration sensors can also measure vibration as a process variable; for example, material handling systems looking for an impact when something is moved or placed. They can be used to determine the running status and/or condition of rotating equipment such as pumps, motors, compressors, paper machines, rolling mills, machine tools, and gearboxes.

Features

  • MEMS-based sensors provide DIN ISO 10816 standard vibration sensing
  • Vibration velocity ranges of 0 to 25 mm/s RMS or 0 to 50 mm/s RMS
  • 10 to 1000 Hz frequency range
  • Suitable for most industrial machines with motor speeds of 600 to 3000 RPM

Vibration sensors provide early detection of developing malfunctions, allowing for timely maintenance before major damage or failure results in costly repairs and production downtime.

Vibration sensors help avoid unplanned downtime by providing vibration monitoring of typical industrial machinery for implementing predictive maintenance strategies. ProSense vibration sensors measure the RMS vibration velocity of the device to which they are attached.
