Top-Quality Vibration Monitors

Whether you need a local display, alarm and shutdown capability, data recording, and the ability to communicate using Modbus over Ethernet TCP/IP; or you need to trend waveform and transient data to provide a predictive look at your machine’s condition, Metrix has a solution to meet your machinery monitoring requirements.

SW5580 Smart Vibration Switch

The SW5580 accepts signals from machine casing mounted velocity sensors, accelerometers or shaft observing proximity probe systems and produce a 4-20 mA output proportional to the measured variable. Using the free Metrix software, the user may configure signal input types for one or two independent channels. For each channel, a green LED indicates sensor and cable integrity. In the event of sensor failure, the LED changes to red and the output current is driven below 3.6 mA, thereby signaling a malfunction. In the SW5580, each channel comes with two optional relays, either solid state or dry contacts, that can be configured for alarm level and time delay. The alarm status is indicated by the LED flashing yellow for Alert and flashing red for Danger. A BNC connector gives access to the raw input signal prior to any filtering for local analysis. A built-in 4-line alpha-numeric LCD display is used to display both dynamic input and 4-20 mA output signals. Isolation is provided between input, outputs and supply. 

DATAWATCH IX Monitor/Recorder

This compact device that can be held in the palm of your hand and has a vivid display.  It comes standard with four (4) isolated channels, and has the option to handle eight (8) non-isolated channels.  If you need more channels, you can put units next to each other.  It is made to handle any 4 to 20 mA input, and is perfect for the Metrix ST6911 Acceleration and ST6917 Velocity Transmitters.
