Vibration monitor for rotating machines

November 8th, 2018, Published in Articles: Energize

The Monitran condition monitoring system monitors and logs vibration in rotating machines. The device can measure as many as 32 channels. Parameters that can be measured include velocity and envelope g, as well as temperature. Known as the MTN5032, the microcontroller-based system has an easy-to-navigate 18,5 cm colour touch screen which enables users to set alarm thresholds and delays either individually or across all channels. Data sampling periods, ranges and accuracy levels can also be easily set. The channels are configured to customer specifications and offer 12 bit sampling, with an input range of 25 mm/s for velocity and 10 g for envelope g. Temperature channels, which can be used to monitor bearings or gearbox oil for example, can monitor up to 120°C. AC output data for each channel is accessible via door-mounted BNC connectors for easy analysis, while Modbus and remote PC monitoring are available as options. The stainless steel enclosure provides IP66 ingress protection.
