Types of Sensors used in Vibration Measurement

Vibration  Oscillating movement around equilibrium position is called as vibration. Vibration measurement is used to check electric motors, turbines or bearings health and resonance. The dynamics of the machine, such as the alignment and balance of the spinning elements, are what cause vibrations in all rotating machines. Monitoring vibration amplitude at specific frequencies can reveal …

Theory of Vibration sensors

Introduction Sensors used to measure vibration come in three basic types: displacement, velocity, and acceleration. Displacement sensors measure changes in distance between a machine’s rotating element and its stationary housing (frame). Displacement sensors come in the form of a probe that threads into a hole drilled and tapped in the machine’s frame, just above the …

Vibration measuring instruments, Accelerometers

  The instruments which are used to measure the displacement, velocity or acceleration of vibrating body are called vibration measuring instruments. What is Machine Vibration? Machine vibration is simply the back-and-forth movement of machines or machine components. Any component that moves back and forth or oscillates is vibrating. A machine component may vibrate over large …

Vibration fork point level switch

Vibration sensing is only suitable for point measurement. The vibration switch working principle is based upon detecting the change in harmonic vibration frequency of the sensing element as a result of the presence of the target media. Working:   The vibration switch consists of an oscillating or tuning fork which is made to resonate in the air. The …
