Why measure vibration?

Vibration is considered the best operating parameter to judge dynamic conditions such as balance (overall vibration), bearing defects (enveloping) and stress applied to components. Many machinery problems show themselves as excessive vibration. Rotor imbalance, misalignment, mechanical looseness, structural resonance, soft foundation, and gear mesh defects are some of the defects that can be measured by vibration. Measuring the “overall” vibration of a machine, a rotor in relation to a machine or the structure of a machine and comparing the measurement to its normal value (norm) indicates the current health of the machine.

Testimonials

Thank you so much for your help. Based upon my recommendation, the Amazon facility where I work has purchased another of the PLS strobes. As an Electrical Engineer, I rate your PLS unit as the best I've used.

After retiring an older Dickson logger due to incompatibility with win 10, I picked up this logger (Track-It Pressure/Temp, Vac/Temp Data Logger with Display) and found it superior in every way. No leaks, great software and excellent battery life.

 Rugged Temp WONDERFUL INSTRUMENT

I have only started using this [Track-it™ Rugged Temp Data Logger] a short time, and this is the best thing that I have seen. The data logger works incredibly well, and the pricing can't be beat! As soon as I have a few validation runs to see how it works under pressure, I will re-review.

IT WORKS GREAT!

I bought this tachometer several years ago and have found it to be a great tool for measuring RPM (I use it for fire pump testing) and it's easy to use and maintain. It's a great buy for the price!

NEARLY BULLETPROOF

I use this [SPSR Self-Powered Sensor] all the time for RPM measurements for powertrain NVH testing. The ROS-P is good, but needs a fairly large target pulse width, on the order of 1 cm. I recommend checking out the ROLS-P if you need many pulses on a small-diameter target. I also use the magnetic sensor and it works well with a contact wheel in case you cannot get good optical location for whatever reason. I have used these for 20 years and like them.
