Adept Scientific is announcing a new measurement device for the acquisition of transient signals and vibrations. Expert Vibro from Delphin Technology is a compact unit that makes it easy to collect vibration measurements with a single, flexible piece of equipment. Intuitive configuration means fast implementation and short commissioning times.
Because vibration data delivers critical information on the performance and condition of bearings, shafts and machinery, which have a significant effect on the quality and efficiency of production processes, it is vital to acquire, evaluate and process this data on a continuous basis, and be able to respond very quickly to potential problems.
Using processor technology based on powerful FPGAs, the Expert Vibro is equipped with up to 16 synchronous analogue inputs with sampling rates of up to 50kHz per channel. A 24-bit A/D converter delivers high-precision measurement. Users can switch easily between voltage, IEPE and shaft vibration sensors. Integrated comparators and digital inputs allow flexible triggering. Measurement data is monitored ‘on the fly’ with switching within milliseconds of up to 8 digital outputs.
Characteristic values can be determined from time signals and spectra. Spectra are computed online (FFT) and recorded along with time signals and characteristic values. Expert Vibro has a built-in data storage capability to enable independent operation; while its touch display shows important configuration or measurement data. Versatile software channels enable Expert Vibro to be used for complex analysis and monitoring tasks.
Expert Vibro can be connected to PCs via LAN or USB. Optional WLAN, UMTS or LTE modules are available for standalone operation. Antennae can be connected via SMA sockets. Two PROFIBUS interfaces are available as well as Modbus TCP for fieldbus connections. Multiple Expert Vibro devices can be synchronised to process vibration data from many channels.
Combining operational flexibility with complex processing functions in an economic, user-friendly system, is available now from Adept Scientific in the UK and Ireland. Please follow the link for further details about Expert Vibro.
