Operating principle of vibration sensors
Vibration sensors from ifm efector operate using a MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical System) accelerometer which is integrated onto the I.C. (integrated circuit) microchip that powers the sensor. This technology uses nano size mechanical components that have nearly no mass or movement. This eliminates any potential issues with signal drift, resonant frequency and the periodic calibration requirements of IEPE accelerometers. This increases reliability and ruggedness all while reducing costs.
ifm efector’s vibration monitors are predictive maintenance tools that help to identify potential machine problems and help eliminate unplanned downtime safeguarding production equipment such as fans, pumps, motors and compressors. You can also verify that your machine is operating to normal vibration levels as they measure the vibration signal based on the widely accepted international standard organization’s 10816 for vibration monitoring. It has never been easier to safeguard from downtime and failure.

The VK series, such as the Vibration monitor VKV021, offers a fully electronic switch with easy to adjust rotating dial. The top dial sets max vibration level and the lower dial sets the time delay to eliminate false triggering. There is also a protective cap available, which can be obtained as an accessory, ensuring protection against tampering.
The VT series, such as the Vibration transmitter VTV121, is designed to permanently mount on industrial equipment to continuously monitor changes in vibration levels. By detecting vibration changes when they first occur, the VT transmitter can help to prevent equipment from catastrophically failing. It is designed to withstand harsh environments and is IP67/IP68/IP69K rated.
