PCE-VMS 501 wireless Vibration Sensor to measure acceleration, speed, offset, and temperature / optional extension: max. 60 dispatchers per base with max. 6 base stations (360 dispatchers)


The wireless PCE-VMS 501 Vibration Sensor detects vibration within an acceleration range of up to 30 g and a frequency range between 5 and 10 KHz. The wireless Vibration Sensor features external vibration sensors which measure vibrations on machines and transfer those measurements wirelessly to a receiving unit. The sensors can be easily attached to a machine due to their magnetic base. Not only do the sensors measure vibrations and transfer the measurements to a computer, but the sensors also recognize temperatures between -20 °C and +120 °C. While operating, the communicating server of the PCE-VMS 504 Vibration Monitor sends the measured parameters straight to a receiving unit, which then uploads the received data straight to a server. If the system cannot establish a connection with the server, the measurements are temporarily saved on the receiving unit until a server-connection could be re-established. A main advantage of the wireless Vibration Monitor is that there are no wires, so that the set-up of the system is very quick and easy, and the wireless Vibration Monitor is able to record vibrations over a longer period of time.
