Choosing the Right Accelerometer for Predictive Maintenance
Monitoring a machine’s health status enables predictive maintenance, allowing industries to anticipate breakdowns and realize substantial operational savings and downtime. To determine when it is the right time to trigger a maintenance operation, the manufacturer uses parameters such as vibration, noise, and temperature measurements. In a rotating machine (engine, generator, etc.) an abnormal vibration can be a sign of a faulty ball bearing, axle misalignment, imbalance or excessive looseness. Avoid being caught off guard and detect the very first signs of anomaly with a low noise, high bandwidth accelerometer.
Condition-Based Monitoring of the Human Body
With advances in technology, vital sign monitoring will become increasingly common in various industries and throughout our daily lives. Whether used for treatment or prevention, such health-related solutions call for reliable and robust technology.
