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.

5580 Smart Vibration Signal Conditioner

This signal conditioner can accept signals from machine casing-mounted velocity sensors, accelerometers, or shaft-observing proximity probe systems. It produces a 4-20 mA output proportional to the measured variable to amplify signals. This Smart Vibration Signal Conditioner features two independent channels and a scale output function that can be selected for various units (e.g., RMS, peak, or peak-to-peak if a proximity sensor is used).

When using a proximity probe system as an input, the 5580 Smart Vibration Signal Conditioner can output peak to peak vibration, thrust position, and or speed. The 5580 can be configured with the free Metrix software for a variety of scale ranges.

The 5580 comes with a BNC to access the raw signal and LEDs for sensor status. The display can be used to read both the engineering units and mA for each channel. It can be applied to various items, including generators, turbines, reciprocating compressors, industrial fans, centrifuges, natural gas/diesel engines, motors, and pumps.

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.
