How It Works
The machinery generally consists of three phases: motor, gearbox, and fan. Typically we install vibration sensors on the bearing surface in either the horizontal, vertical, or axial directions.
What We Offer
OPTION 1 : 4.0 Solution With Wi-care 200
Using the Wi-care 200 hard- and software we can connect all types of sensors. These can vary from dynamic accelerometers to temperature-, pressure-, distance-, oil-, windspeed-,… sensors. In this way we can accurately predict failures using 4.0 algoritmes that combines all data.
OPTION 2 : Traditional Accelerometers
5 sensors on both the motor and gearbox so 10 sensors in total.
General purpose sensors like CTC’s AC192 and AC194 series sensors rated at 100 mV/g can be recommended for applications over 30 CPM (0.5 Hz):
Low frequency applications from 6 CPM to 30 CPM (0.1 to 0.5 Hz) should use a 500 mV/g sensor like CTC’s AC133 or AC134 series accelerometers:
Cables and Connectors:
Using the correct cabling to take the signal to take the signal to a switch box located in a more easily accessible area is important.
CTC’s CB206 armored cables with several choices of connector are suggested for this purpose:

These cables can be connected to a switch box such as the SB262. This junction box is also capable of passing the signal through to a remote monitoring system such as a DCS, PLC, or SCADA System:
