Tri-Axial Vibration

An equipment's vibration signature provides extensive details about its health and is used to identify bearing failure, misalignment, cavitation, pipe strain, and much more.



Elevated temperature is an indication of bearing failure, inadequate bearing lubrication, and other causes. Studying the temperature trend can detect thermal fault signatures and gain additional insight.



Allows the sensors to monitor the true RPM and diagnose electrical faults to not only monitor the health of the motor, but also enhance the vibration analysis accuracy.
