Intelligent vibration switch – simply smart
The iFm intelligent vibration switch features an analogue output switch that shows monitoring, display and recording of vibration data in one compressed field unit. The product also provides a convenient installation using its pushbuttons for parameter settings.
Furthermore, the switch exhibits an on-board time stamped history task for precise data gathering. For its function, the product’s octavis technology is often used in the mobile department and this sensor is used to measure the average vibration velocity in units of mm/s or inch/s.
Measurement value and switchpoint conditions are visualised on the LED display. Critical machine conditions are signalled using either two switching outputs or alternatively one switching and one analogue output.
Additionally the operator can use the analogue input to monitor a further process value e.g. temperature. Alternatively the unit can be powered using the integrated USB interface providing the option of using the VN as a hand-held device.
The VNB001 is the first member of a new series of compact vibration sensors. It is used for online monitoring of overall vibration of machines and equipment according to ISO 10816. This unit is distinguished by its simple setup, requiring no PC software for parameter setting.
