Vibration sensors help avoid unplanned downtime by providing vibration monitoring of typical industrial machinery for implementing predictive maintenance strategies. ProSense vibration sensors measure the RMS vibration velocity of the device to which it is attached.
Vibration monitoring, also referred to as machine condition monitoring, is used to detect industrial equipment vibration which may indicate a malfunction, pending failure, or process restriction. Vibration analysis can identify developing problems, allowing for timely and predictable scheduling of maintenance before major damage or failure, and production downtime.
Vibration sensors can also measure vibration as a process variable; for example, material handling systems looking for an impact when something is moved or placed.

ProSense VCST series MEMS-based sensors provide DIN ISO 10816 standard vibration sensing, measuring the RMS vibration velocity of the device to which it is attached. A switch output operates at a setpoint that is easily set with rotating setting rings; an analog output supplies an actual vibration measurement. These sensors are suitable for motor speeds from 600 to 3000 RPM.
