Vibration monitoring – Detect resulting damage at an early stage and avoid consequential costs.

Why vibration monitoring?
Every machine generates vibrations during operation. These vibrations can quickly exceed a permissible level due to e.g. unbalance, misalignment or resonances. An increase in the oscillation amplitude has a negative effect on the machine condition and reduces the lifetime.

The result: unexpected failures and shorter lifetime.

Solution with efector octavis:
The overall vibration velocity is used in industry standards to evaluate the status of the complete machine. ISO 10816 categorises machines, ISO 14694 fans, limit values for the strain caused by vibrations are recommended.

efector octavis monitors if the permissible degree of machine vibrations is exceeded. If damage is detected at an early stage, the affected components can be replaced and consequential damage can be avoided.

Monitoring vibration velocity.

The vibration sensor VK monitors online the overall vibration condition of machines and plants according to ISO 10816. The sensor measures the rms vibration velocity on a non-rotating component surface and triggers an alarm if the machine vibrations are too strong.

Detect unbalance and shocks in time.

Machine vibrations can quickly exceed a permissible level due to unbalance, misalignment or bearing damage.

The result: unexpected failures and shorter lifetime. With the VN sensor vibrations and shocks are continuously detected, indicated and documented.

Monitor up to 4 measurement points.

With the sensor type VSA / VSP machine vibrations can also be measured at inaccessible places. Up to 4 measuring points can be monitored and documented with the diagnostic electronics type VSE. The Ethernet and fieldbus interfaces simplify networking and remote diagnostics.
