Many plants perform route-based, machinery condition monitoring with portable vibration analyzers. The most common vibration sensor used is a single-axis accelerometer mounted to a 2-pole magnet, which can easily attach to a variety of surfaces including curved ones. Vibration data collected from these sensors provide meaningful results for the detection and trending of many mechanical […]

In an earlier post, Portable Vibration Analyzer-Human Centered Design Style, I mentioned four-channel analysis plus phase capability. I checked with Emerson’s Johan Van Puyenbroeck to explain what this means for process manufacturing maintenance professionals. Multi-channel means the ability to collect data from multiple inputs. Triaxial (triax) accelerometers can measure vibration in the x-, y-, and […]
