Looking for pick-up to pc vibration analyzers

edisonindia ·
Something like this http://www.sequoia.it/en/fast_tracer.htm . Any one has any idea about their type of pick-ups to pc analyzers? I have serious doubts about the foot print of their sensor given that it is rectangular with a curvature. Will they fit in all types of motor surfaces ?  I prefer a small round and flat seating surface for a pick-up. Is any one else reliable who are making these types of connect directly to pc sensors (without having go through a box aka vibration analyzer)?

In order to get reliable results, I have found, I must use Strain gauges and Accelerometers attached to the point in question with epoxy. The computer lead is soldered to these. It is a very reliable and accurate way of gathering vibration data. It is used throughout the aircraft business for vibration annalise.

Strain Gauges are used for measuring vibration. Accelerometers are used to measure speed of a moving object.

Re: Looking for pick-up to pc vibration analyzers

Walt Strong ·
"Strain Gauges are used for measuring vibration" I always thought that strain gages measured strain (static and dynamic) that is the result of force on the structure. Accelerometers measure the vibration acceleration of the surface of structure they are mounted on. Speed of a moving object is called Velocity and may be measured by integrating accelerometer output or using a seismic velocity sensor. I am not sure what you are referring to by "computer lead", since both strain gages and...

GTI Predictive Technology has single axis plug and play sensors for PC applications. These sensors use ICP/IEPE sensors. They have been tested with many of the available PC based vibration analysis programs available.

Prism, You refer to "many of the available PC based vibration analysis programs available", but my understanding is that the GTI wireless accelerometer is only compatible with Apple OS such as on the iPAD and not for Windows-based PC. Is this correct, or has the compatibility been expanded to other operating systems and software? Walt

Hi Walt- It is true that our vibration and balancing apps run on the iPad. However, our wired and wireless sensor solutions both have a USB connection for use with any platform. We have tested both solutions on Android and Windows tablets and PC's and so far they have all been plug and play. We provide a calibration certificate with the sensor so the cal number can be loaded into the app or the user can calibrate using a 1g shaker. Let me know if you ant more info.

Thanks Dave, Most importantly we need a simple testing device that is portable and easily used by any technician. I have done some research and I think most important parameters are viscosity, TAN, TBN, water content and oxidization. but do I really need all these in a purpose of go no go analyzer? so finally I have com across PALL 500 which I think it is the most suitable analyzer. Spectro has spread their measures over multi devices. it would be the best if they compile it in one device.

Maybe you develop an in field go/no go test with one device, once that fails additional tests would be required? The...

Re: centrifugal compressor lube oil pump

GLSands ·
I may be wrong, but what I see is a 1XRPM that is not reflecting an Unbalance. Rather the 1XRPM is an indication of a support bracket becoming loose. This is also causing uncertain fluctuation of the Enveloping Signature and flow. Check for looseness with Strobe or touch. Hope this helps.

Have you collected data at Vertical and axial direction on NDE and DE. It does not seems to be a flow related issue based on the spectral data. What about the process parameters- is there any differential pressure indication across the suction strainer. Is this a long term issue or happened after any shutdown/maintenance

Brent, I doubt very much that you are abusing your cables or have any interest in resolving the issue with a lawyer. Both comments were my dry, but not well received, humor.

I have not have any actual cable or connector failures over the years, but I have had occasional loose connections that affected measurements. My fix was to attach a Velcro cable strap to cable and attach to the top-right D-ring on the analyzer case to for a strain-relief loop. This is a little ugly and annoying, but...

We are facing similar issues with recently procured D25481 -(Straight accelerometer cables) along with CSI 2140. After some time of use analyzer will start giving the error message “The Sensor isn't properly connected or isn't working”. This thing never happened with CSI 2130.

I believe that data logger accelerometer cables can be locally prepared by purchasing coaxial coiled cable from local market, its a very common & cheap product, no use to pay extra ordinarily to analyzer manufacturers, in most of the cases when cable gets damaged, the connectors are safe, and instrumentation guys can easily connect those connectors for you. So, damage of these cables doesn't bothers me a lot because its a peanut for me.

Thanks GKAISER, I had actually talked about using that exact setup with CTC, but they talked me into trying the 90 degree connectors first. So far, the 90's are holding up but if they happen to go bad I'll definitely give that a try. Brent

Hi all with the 2140 Analyzer. The 12mm 5 pin connector is not a real robust design that is meant for constant on/off connection. I was the tech rep at one of the noted cable manufacturers and observed the 12mm failures. One suggestion is to purchase an adapter cable, 12mm 5 pin to a BNC jack connector with 6-12 inches of cable attached. Leave the 12mm connector n the data collector and use the BNC connector as the frequently used connector. This minimizes (does not eliminate) the 12mm 5 pin...
