Vibration sensors and accelerometers

14 September 2009

Monitran has made its general purpose vibration sensors and accelerometers available as “Grip Tight” (GT) versions. With Grip Tight (patent pending), the fitting or removal of a sensor to/from its GT stud takes mere seconds - yet the mechanical bond, essential for the transfer of energy, is assured.

Unlike a traditional threaded mounting option, there is no need to screw the sensor onto the stud. This is a major plus when using sensors with integral cables, which would otherwise have their cables twisted when tightening the sensor onto the stud. The Grip Tight method also removes, completely, the risk of sheering the stud-to-machine bond; be it screw or adhesive.

A GT-bodied sensor has no hexagonal base, as a spanner is not required for mounting the sensor to its stud. Instead, tightening a grub screw draws the base of the sensor down onto its GT-stud.

As standard the GT studs are available as M6 or M8 male or female threads, but can be made-to-order with virtually any stud-to-machine mounting method.

Also as standard, the grub screw in the sensor body will be a 4mm thread and sensors will be supplied with Allan keys.
