Vibration monitoring in hazardous areas

04 February 2014

Permanent vibration monitoring is key to ensuring that any damage or wear to plant assets are detected before serious breakdown can occur. The VSP acceleration sensor from ifm electronic is designed to detect measurement values in atmospheres with a highly explosive potential, which are typical in many chemical, pharmaceutical, food and mining applications.

Together with the VSE100 diagnostic unit and the ZB0633 barrier, the ifm system can be implemented in zones where the highest risks can arise. 

The VSP measures vibration up to +80 g over a frequency range from 2 to 10000 Hz and feeds the data back to the VSE. Using the VES003 software for parameter setting, the VSE monitors, analyses and records the values and events, providing multiple outputs for signalling events and trends.  These outputs range from simple switched and analogues signals to full Ethernet TCP/IP.
