Vibration data collection on plant equipment can be very problematic due to safety concerns, time constraints, access difficulties, and other reasons.
Solution: The use of a termination switch box and vibration sensors can allow an analyst to safely collect vibration data away from conditions that could complicate or even prevent manual readings from being taken due to safety concerns or other reasons. In addition, this can speed the data collection process and increase time efficiency within the Condition Monitoring (CM) program. A capable data collector such as the VibXpert® II allows a CM program to collect data remotely using methods like the one described above. This capability can greatly enhance safety and efficiency within your CM program.
