29 October 2009

The vibration monitoring kit will prove invaluable to engineers in monitoring the trend of vibration levels on motors, pumps, gearboxes, fans and all rotating machinery. Ideal as an entry-level unit for vibration monitoring, the meter's portability means that measurements can be taken in-situ in remote parts of the factory.

Conforming to the ISO 10816-3 Machine Vibration Standard, the unit can measure bearing condition and levels of velocity, acceleration and displacement, covering any of the four ISO machine group options ranging from large 300 KW machines (Group 1) down to simple pumps rated at 15 KW (Group 4). It has a 'HOLD' facility where the display will indicate the alarm status shown as 'OK', 'Vibration Alert' or 'Danger'.

The vibration meter is powered by an internal rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery which can operate for 48 hours continuously. Battery condition is displayed as an icon. The unit comes complete with both a mains powered and an in-car battery charger.

The HS-620 kit, which is available ex-stock, includes the vibration meter, the hand-held probe, a magnetic mount, mains and in-car chargers, an instruction manual, all contained within a protective carrying case.
