In an industry, machinery is an important component to ensure the sustainability of the industry. The prime condition of the engine is also a key to the success of the industrial world. Therefore the machine must be checked regularly, such as checking the vibration level. Because, engine vibration also affects its performance. To measure these vibrations you can use vibration meter. What is vibration meter, the vibration meter section and how does it work? Here's the review that you can see.
What is Vibration meter?
The vibration meter is basically a measuring device that is designed specifically in measuring vibrations in a particular object. These objects, for example, are vibrations in a pump, motor vibration and vibration on a small, medium, or heavy machine. Using it is also very easy, you simply attach a vibration sensor and magnetic base to the object to be measured how big the vibration is.
Later, a number data will appear on the measuring screen. The numerical data or value shown by vibration meter is the strength of the vibration produced by an object. The results of this measurement are then used as a basic benchmark in carrying out actions and setting vibrations that are in accordance with the specified threshold.
Not only that, the proper use of vibration meter parts can have other functions for industry players. For example, it is to detect a certain level of vibration. Too strong vibrations or abnormal vibrations can cause a machine to damage both the inside and the outside. So that machine damage resulting in further losses can be minimized using this vibration meter.
Vibration Meter Parts
In its use, parts of the vibration meter are broadly divided into two. These parts include the vibration sensor and dynamic signal analyzer. Both play an important role in vibration meters when measuring vibration of a particular object. Here's an explanation of the parts of the vibration meter.
In general, the vibration sensor based on its context has a function as a tool for converting large physical vibration signals into an analog signal. Especially for electrical quantities and in the form of electrical voltage. You simply put this part on a machine to be measured.
Dynamic Signal Analizer
After the vibration sensor is placed on the engine part, a vibration signal will be obtained. This vibration signal on the engine will be channeled to the dynamic signal analyzer. Dynamic signal analyzers have a complex combination of engine vibration source signals. Later, from this part, how many vibrations will appear with digital data.
How Vibration Meter Works
Besides having a part-part vibration meter that is useful for checking vibration of objects, vibration meter also has an easy and simple way of working. So you do not need to feel difficult to use at any time when you want to check industrial machinery. There are ways to work using vibration meter including:
- Check the vibration meter tool well especially for the vibration sensor section, sensor cable and power button (ON / OFF). Also check the battery components and display or LCD.
- Then turn on the device by pressing the ON / OFF button and then attach the vibration sensor to the machine to be measured. This sensor will then send data to the dynamic signal analyzer.
- To produce data well then make sure the vibration level works like a mode or value that often appears, the median or middle value and then measure the average value of the vibration.
That is a brief review of vibration meters that are commonly used in industrial machinery. Hopefully useful and increase your insight.
