Vibration damage can effectively be prevented by using vibration monitors to monitor and report excessive vibrations, well before the danger point is reached. Our portfolio of monitoring units comprises permanently installed, rack-based machine protection (MPS) and condition monitoring systems (CMS) as well as offline, portable systems.
Portable systems are frequently used for temporary diagnostic monitoring of critical machinery for diagnostics when there is either a high probability of a machine fault, or serious consequences from that fault event, for example after an outage or a retrofit.
The newly available portable VIBROPORT 8000 hardware platform is based on the rack-based VC-8000 machine protection system. It is packaged and optimized for portable use to:
- Record vibration levels during machine start-up and coast-down
- Monitor trouble machines for several months until root cause of fauts can be determined and resolved
- Augment protection-only systems with CMS data, especially when an incumbent online system does not provide the relevant data
- Provide access to the current system data for 3rd party consultants
The system comes packed in a box ready to use. The favorable package price includes customer training and support.
