About Metrix Vibration
Founded in 1965 by Peter J. Sundt, Metrix traces its roots to seismic measurement technology. Initially focused on geophysical exploration, this technology also found abundant applications for vibration measurements on industrial machines. As a result, machinery condition monitoring emerged as our sole focus and has remained so for more than 55 years.
Metrix pioneered the concept of simple, affordable machinery protection with our mechanical vibration switch offerings, revolutionary 4-20mA vibration transmitters, robust high-temperature velocity sensors, and innovative impact transmitter technology for reciprocating machinery.
We introduced a way for our customers to monitor radial vibration, thrust or shaft speed using a single device. Our revolutionary Digital Proximity System (DPS) combines the performance of a fully API 670 compliant eddy-current proximity measurement system with the flexibility of digital configurability. DPS saves our customers time and money.
In 1998 we acquired PMC/ BETA, the world’s leading provider of electronic vibration switches. In 2007 we acquired the vibration monitoring division of Hardy Instruments and their industry-leading portable vibration calibrators.
Metrix has been ISO-9001 certified for more than 20 years, which ensures that we never lose sight of quality and continuous improvement of our manufacturing processes. We stand behind our product quality with a full 36-month warranty.
Metrix is now a subsidiary of Indicor, a privately held company.
