Top-Quality Seismic Transmitters
Metrix seismic transmitters offer a reliable 4-20 mA DC signal output proportional to the amplitude of the vibration being monitored. This makes them perfectly suited for accurately detecting vibration at a very fine level and for inclusion as components in larger and more complex condition monitoring systems. Metrix seismic transmitters make ideal vibration transmitters for any high-end vibration detection applications where a Distributed Control System (DCS), Programmable Logic Controller (PLC), Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), or other automation system is implemented in the place of a traditional, stand-alone vibration monitor.
Metrix provides seismic transmitters and other monitoring solutions for various environmental conditions and applications. Our catalog of products offers a range of operating temperatures, scale factors, frequency responses, connector types, case materials, mounting options, hazardous area conditions, and Safety Integrity Level (SIL) ratings. Because the output of a seismic transmitter is directly linked to the amplitude of the vibrations being monitored, these devices go far beyond a traditional vibration switch that can only detect vibrations on a binary level (on-off). The vibration transmitter output improves the data your condition monitoring system relies on to keep your people safe, equipment running, and process producing.
Why Is Metrix Vibration the Premier Supplier of Seismic Transmitters?
For laypersons, seismic vibration monitoring is often linked to detecting earthquakes and other activity in the earth’s tectonic plates. This is because seismic technology can detect these geological vibrations at very small levels and measure the strength of vibrations during catastrophic earthquakes. With quality seismic transmitters and condition monitoring equipment from Metrix, these same principles can be applied to your operation, whether you’re involved in oil & gas, manufacturing, energy, wastewater, or any other industry that relies on pumps, motors, fans, compressors, or other costly machinery that may degrade with time.

The ST5484E is a loop-powered vibration transmitter and signal conditioner that offers reliable consistent outputs, at the accuracy level your condition monitoring system needs, without requiring additional signal conditioning circuitry. This sensor is often used in hazardous areas and offers a SIL rating.
The ST5491E is a loop-powered vibration transmitter and signal conditioner that offers reliable consistent outputs, at the accuracy level your condition monitoring system needs, with the addition of an attached local indication that is required for many plants and factories. This sensor is often used in hazardous areas and offers a SIL rating.
This device is similar to the IT6810 but is mounted in a housing that is suitable for a Class 1 Div 1 hazardous area.
The 162VTS is similar to the ST5484E but with a narrower body. It’s a simple, two-wire loop-powered transmitter that is ideal for most plant and factory applications. If your condition monitoring plan calls for a simple seismic vibration transmitter that is relatively compact with easy setup and reliable outputs, the 162VTS is a perfect solution.
