Description

Vibration monitoring data logger – Compact, intelligent and fast

The Expert Vibro Vibration monitoring data logger is equipped with a high powered, dual core FPGA processor, based on ARM technology. Consequently, users have ample reserves of processing power when needed. Flexible switching is possible between measuring voltages, currents, IEPE or shaft vibration sensors. Another benefit is the integrated comparators and digital inputs, which result in flexible and speed-synchronised triggering. You can also monitor your measurement data online and digital outputs can be switched in milliseconds when limit values are exceeded. Additionally, you can record process data by using the relevant modules.

Vibrations deliver information on the condition of bearings, shafts and machinery and consequently have a major effect on quality levels in production processes. They should be continuously acquired, intelligently evaluated and condensed into meaningful data for monitoring. In critical situations, machinery needs to be shut down within milliseconds.

The Expert Vibro provides analysis and monitoring functions, and intelligent signal processing. You also benefit from an independent data storage capability and versatile fieldbus connections.

This modular system for signal processing comes with a range of pre-processing functions. Filters, such as high, low, or bandpass with rectifiers, integrators, differentiators or decimators can be selected to make up a pre-processing sequence. Moreover, multiple pre-processing sequences are able to run in parallel in order to evaluate an input signal. Significantly, this provides you with an especially high level of flexibility.

Another benefit is the precise analysis of non-periodic signals, such as in fault diagnostics. In continuous sampling mode, you can record even the smallest of irregularities. The Expert Vibro also measures, monitors and records fully independently. It is equipped with its own internal data storage capability making it especially reliable and secure.
