Hansford Sensors 'sees increase in vibration module popularity'

09 June 2011

Hansford Sensors says it's seen an increase in the popularity and usage of its broad range of vibration modules

The modules act as an interface between an accelerometer and a control system and are used as part of the predictive maintenance process in industries such as, but not limited to, steel, quarrying, food and pharmaceuticals.

Vibration modules are a cost effective solution for monitoring the condition of industrial machinery giving the facility to provide multiple outputs, for example, RMS velocity, enveloped or peak 'g', 0-10V, 4-20mA and buffered acceleration.

They introduce additional signals which can be scaled to suit the specific application in order to achieve the best results. Popular models in the range include the HS-530 and HS-535 which are DIN rail mounted, offer a choice of triple or quad output and require a 24 V DC supply.

The range of vibration modules provide flexibility with input - 100mV/g from a constant current accelerometer operating over a typical frequency range from 2Hz up to 10kHz. Filters are also included for gE, g pk-pk and velocity, depending on the required model. Select modules are available with a BNC so any commercially available data collector can be inserted to retrieve signals for data analysis.

With a compact design, the modules can be easily built and configured into a multi-channel system that can also act as a protection monitor for critical machinery. In addition to the above, the vibration modules can be interfaced using wireless technology which reduces the cost of installation and overall maintenance.
