We understand that you’re already monitoring motor vibrations with ICP® accelerometers.
But you second-guess yourself….”Is that really enough? Am I taking readings often enough to catch quickly-progressing faults? Do I have the time and expertise to analyse separately the low frequency and high frequency data in order to capture the whole gamut of potential faults?”
The answer is MAYBE NOT.
Ease your mind by using the Bearing Fault Detector (BFD, Model Number 682B05) in conjunction with your existing 100mV/g ICP® accelerometer.
The BFD provides:
- Continuous monitoring of high frequency faults (i.e. bearing damage) with a 4-20 mA output signal based on true peak acceleration data
- Continuous monitoring of low frequency faults (i.e. imbalance and misalignment) with a 4-20 mA output signal based on acceleration or velocity data scaled in terms of RMS or peak
- Ability for in-depth fault analysis with a raw voltage output signal
Here’s how the BFD works. Try it out and get better motor protection!
