Simply good, doubly effective: sensor measures acceleration on two axes

  • Optimum condition analysis thanks to acceleration measurement in 2 axes of motion
  • For connection to VSE diagnostic electronics
  • Universal use thanks to IEPE standard
  • Wide measuring range for many different application scenarios
  • Robust IP 67 design

For efficient vibration diagnostics

The VSM102 acceleration sensor is capable of detecting radial and axial vibration changes. This makes it easier, for example, to monitor the condition of angular contact ball bearings or extruders, as well as other systems where forces and unbalances act on more than just one axis of motion.

Important indicator of condition monitoring

The acceleration signal plays an important role in machine and plant condition monitoring. It indicates symptoms, such as unbalance, bearing damage or a crash, which, if they go unnoticed, can lead to machine failure, at an early stage. The detected raw data is transferred for further evaluation to an external device, such as the VSE diagnostic electronics from ifm.

Robust: MEMS measuring principle

The VSM102 acceleration sensor is based on a MEMS chip (capacitive measuring principle) and designed for demanding industrial applications. Thanks to MEMS technology, the sensor’s proper functioning can be checked actively via the diagnostic electronics (self-test).

Widely compatible: IEPE standard

The sensor transmits its data according to the IEPE signal, which is an established standard, e.g. for acceleration sensors. The advantage of IEPE devices is their consistently high sensitivity – regardless of the type and length of the connection cable.
