Hazardous area vibration monitoring

Protecting plant assets is vital in all industries, and permanent vibration monitoring is key to ensuring that damage and wear are detected before serious breakdown can occur. The VSP acceleration sensor from ifm electronic is designed to detect measurement values in atmospheres with a highly explosive potential found in many industries in the chemical, pharmaceutical, food and mining sectors.

Together with the VSE100 diagnostic unit and the ZB0633 barrier the ifm system can be implemented in zones where the highest risks can arise.

The VSP measures vibration up to +/- 80g over a frequency range from 2 to 10000Hz and feeds the data back to the VSE. Using the VES003 software for parameter setting, the VSE monitors, analyses and records the values and events, providing multiple outputs for signalling events and trends. These outputs range from simple switched and analogues signals to full Ethernet TCP/IP.

Even in the most potentially explosive atmospheres, the VSP/VSE combination can monitor the performance of bearings, motors, shafts and other moving components on a continuous basis, providing the plant operator with full information to make decisions from planned maintenance to a controlled shutdown.
