Where do you collect vibration data, for the ODE bearing? (See attatched picture) 31 Responses

Just out of curiosity, where do you position the transducer when collecting vibration data on a motor on the Opposite Drive End (ODE)bearing? aka, the outboard bearing.

95% of the motors in our plant have a fan cover over the ODE end bell. So, out of simplicity, I have always taken them (from position A) on the stator fins/iron as close to the end bell as the fan cover will allow. I realize this isn't ideal because it's not in-line with the bearing, but...
