Top-Quality Seismic Sensors
What Are Seismic Sensors?
Historically, seismic sensors were created initially to help society predict seismic wave activity that could lead to catastrophic earthquakes. Now, we have repurposed those seismic sensors to measure the casing vibration on rotating and reciprocating machines.
How Do Seismic Sensors Work?
We use the word “seismic” because the casing vibration sensor is inertially referenced to the machine its mounted on. “Inertially referenced” means that the mass inside the sensor does not want to move, and when movement occurs (vibration), the sensor provides an output.
These devices measure the acceleration on the casing of the machine or on structures, like piping. They are typically used for machines that operate above 60 Hz.
