DARMSTADT, Germany (Jan. 22, 2021) – Brüel & Kjær Vibro (B&K Vibro), one of the leading worldwide independent suppliers of condition monitoring solutions for rotating machinery, has launched VIBROSTORE 100, a palm sized device that provides vibration level and bearing wear monitoring for balance-of-plant machines at the push of a button.
The lightweight device can be used single-handedly and enables even untrained personnel to take vibration measurements and assess a semi-critical machine’s overall vibration condition. The instrument is equipped with a pre-set cable-connected high-quality B&K Vibro acceleration sensor. Once the type and size of the machine based on ISO 10816 and its running speed are entered, a one-button push can perform the measurement. A traffic-light display immediately indicates the severity of the vibration based on the built-in ISO 10816 alarm limits (velocity in mm/s or in/s). The main screen also shows the rolling-element bearing condition in bearing damage units measurement (BDU) and total g (RMS acceleration). The display of the vibration level in frequency ranges indicates the most common machine faults, such as imbalance, misalignment or looseness.
Florian Endres, commercial platform leader, B&K Vibro, said, “Whereas critical and semi-critical machinery is usually equipped with an online protection system to avoid catastrophic damages, it is often too difficult and costly to install an online conditionmonitoring system on every semi-critical machine. With a combination of B&K Vibro quality and extremely competitive pricing, the VIBROSTORE 100 fills the gap in detecting the most common machine faults and delivers quick, reliable and cost-efficient machine health monitoring for semi-critical and balance-of-plant machines.”
VIBROSTORE 100 is available either as stand-alone or packaged with the B&K Vibro Report & Route Manager software, a powerful and highly functional route editor and analysis software. For more information, visit: https://www.bkvibro.com/vibrostore-100/.
