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 they are 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. They can be used to determine the
running status and/or condition of rotating equipment such as pumps, motors,
compressors, paper machines, rolling mills, machine tools, and gearboxes.
MEMS-based sensors provide DIN ISO 10816 standard vibration sensing
Vibration velocity ranges of 0 to 25 mm/s RMS or 0 to 50 mm/s RMS
10 to 1000 Hz frequency range
Suitable for most industrial machines with motor speeds of 600 to 3000 RPM

Vibration Switches / Transmitters
ProSense VCST series sensors conveniently provide a vibration switch and transmitter
in a single unit. These MEMS-based sensors measure the RMS vibration velocity of the
device to which they are attached, provide a switch output operating at a setpoint
easily set with rotating setting rings, and supply an analog output for the actual
18 to 32 VDC operating voltage range
500mA digital output PNP adjustable switch trip point and switch delay (1 to 60 seconds)
Analog 4-20 mA output
M8 x 1.25 male threads process connection
13 to 176°F (-25 to 80°C) operating temperature range
Green and yellow LEDs indicate power and switching status
IP67 environmental protection rating
Harsh Duty Vibration Transmitters
ProSense VCT series vibration transmitters are ideal for harsh industrial applications. These
stainless steel MEMS-based sensors offer a wide operating temperature range and IP67/68/69K
protection (depending on IP rating of the cable used).
316L stainless steel construction
9.6 to 32 VDC operating voltage range
Analog 4-20 mA output
-22 to 257°F ( -30 to 125°C) operating temperature range
¼"-28 UNF / M8 or ¼"-28 UNF process connection (threaded adapters included)
