WEARSCANNER® is an intelligent sensor that detects electrically conductive particles: it counts them in realtime and classifies them according to their size.
WEARSCANNER® uses a new patented detection method which is based on the eddy current principle and works independently of oil temperature, flow rate, viscosity, air and water contents or oil color (darkening).
Recognizes bearing & gear teeth damage
Avoids consequential damage
Enhances plant availability
The eddy current measuring principle An excitation coil (black) that generates an alternating magnetic field (blue) induces eddy currents (green) in the oil. A receiver coil detects the resulting eddy current density. Electrically conductive, i.e. ferritic and non-ferritic contaminants in the oil change the current flow between the excitation and the receiver coils. In order to detect even minuscule particles at high flow velocities WEARSCANNER® utilizes the fast reacting differential coils method with two receiver windings connected in opposition.
Vibration accelerometers of the series VIB 6.20x are used in industrial environments for measuring:
Vibration acceleration occurring in rotating machinery
Shock pulse signals occurring in roller bearings
Vibration accelerometers of the series VIB 6.20x XD and VIB 6.203-x XD respectively, are certified for use in ‘potentially explosive environments’ according to directive 94/9/EG.
The compact design of this accelerometer and the position of the cable, which is passed through the sensor base, reduces the installation space required for this accelerometer considerably.
PRÜFTECHNIK industrial accelerometers for continuous condition monitoring cut hardware costs by allowing simultaneous measurement of:
Tandem-Piezo patent eliminates weaknesses of shear and compression designs
Current line drive signal requires no additional amplification, even over long distances, and prevents ground loop effects
Wide range of special versions available ex stock
Intrinsic safety (option)
VIBCODE® is the world's first intelligent system to ensure accurate data collection by any operator, thereby enhancing trending reliability and eliminating repeat measurements due to mixups.
The measurement stud is encoded with location number and measurement type. A special patented probe locks onto the stud to measure both vibration and bearing condition (shock pulse) with excellent signal transmission and repeatability.
It also allows the data collector to recognize each location and to take the programmed measurement(s) fully automatically.
Automatically detects measurement location
Error-free transfer of measurement information
Compatible with VIBROTIP®, VIBROCORD®, VIBSCANNER®, VIBXPERT®
Measures signals on low-speed machines (>2 Hz)
Intrinsic safety (option)
