Machinery is a major investment for companies — one that plays a huge role in the success of its operations. It’s important to protect that machinery and safeguard operations by also investing in a vibration monitor.
The Electro-Sensors VS1 Vibration Monitor is a rugged, compact, standalone vibration monitor engineered to protect industrial machinery against excessive vibration levels caused by imbalance, misalignment, looseness or worn bearings. When used to monitor the vibration level, the VS1 facilitates the early detection of a pending malfunction, easing the scheduling demands for preventive maintenance.
The VS1 has three LED indicators that easily allow users to determine the output status and circuit condition by simply looking at the unit. The NPN or relay output can be wired for machine shutdown or early warning. An adjustable alarm delay prevents false trips by allowing the user to set a minimum fault condition time before the output changes state.
Housed in a NEMA 4X enclosure, the VS1 mounts directly to the measurement point of the machine being monitored, and its compact size makes installation possible virtually anywhere. It is ideal for detecting over- or under-vibration in machinery such as fans, blowers, crushers, compressors, chillers, mixers, large motors, gearboxes, turbines, conveyors, pumps, centrifuges, blenders and reciprocating machines.
The Electro-Sensors VS1 Vibration Monitor is available from Pickering, Ont.-based Durham Instruments. With more than 50 years of experience in the instrumentation field, the company offers expert solutions for any measuring problem.
