Tips on How to Find the Best Vibration Sensor
Vibration sensors are the most critical technology in the industry. You will need to have a vibration technology in order to for the machinery to work properly in the industry. Reduction of the cost of production is due to the use of vibration sensors. Vibration sensors record the vibration history of the machine so that it can indicate the state of the machine. By monitoring, you will be able to detect where there is a problem. Also, you will be able to predict on the possible location that may develop some mechanical problems. You will have an idea on when and where to do your maintenance needs when you use vibration sensor. Before you set your mind in buying a vibration sensor, you need to consider some factors. In this article, I am going to discuss some of the tips for you to choose wisely on the best vibration sensors.
First, you need to consider the length of vibration, the temperature range of the vibration sensor that is necessary and the frequency range required. Involved chemical corrosives should be considered. Also you need to consider the size and weight of the vibration sensor together with the availability of intense acoustic and electromagnetic fields. You need to look for the best combustible environment for your vibration sensor.
Vibration sensors should have the right length of cables and the correct temperature of the wires. You should consider the power supply for your vibration sensor. Different sensors do not share the same devices for installation. Splash proof connector will be required by some of the vibration sensors. You will have a choice of whether you vibration sensor will need a splash proof or you will have to install it manually because of that reason. You should consider sensitivity and range of frequency of your vibration sensor before you buy an industrial vibration sensor. You will find that the vibration sensor that has high frequency, have lower sensitivity.
In sensitivity range of industrial vibration sensors, you will have a difference o ten units from the previous to the subsequent value. Low and high sensitivity vibration sensors are available. Range of vibration amplitude levels should be known before you made up your mind on the type of industrial vibration sensor that you are going to buy. The industrial vibration sensor is going to experience some vibration amplitude levels changing when you will be experimenting with the sensor. Before you go for the right frequency range, you should first consider choosing the application frequency requirements. From same system, the data will be collected and help you to know the frequency requirements of your vibration sensor. Evaluation of data that has been obtained by a test sensor, will help you determine the frequency that you need.
