Vibration Sensors from Ixthus Instrumentation
Vibration monitoring is extremely important in devices such as; cooling towers, pumps, gas turbines, motors, generators, fans, reciprocating compressors and other machinery.
Vibration Sensors range
Many of the industries which require vibration sensors are highly sensitive, for this reason most of the vibration sensors we offer have hazardous area approvals including ATEX and IECEx and CE marks for compliance.
When choosing a vibration sensor for your application it is important to take into consideration;
• Range and accuracy
• Environment conditions
• Shape of the surface which requires measuring
Vibration sensors from IxthusOur range of vibration sensors includes;
Portable Vibration Sensors - portable vibration sensors are economical solutions for obtaining radial vibration casing measurements
Proximity Vibration Sensor - the proximity systems eliminate the requirements for multiple drivers and transmitters by using a single package which is field configurable and can be set to work with probes and cables from different manufacturers.
Seismic Sensors - seismic vibration instruments are used to measure structural vibration on bearing housing, machinery, piping and machinery support structures. They are extremely well suited to machinery with rolling element bearings. In these types of applications, the bearings will tend to transmit both shaft-bearing and bearing-related vibration to the outside of the machine, this can be detected by seismic vibration sensors.
Shakers - unites to calibrate seismic sensors within the comfort of your own facility and within your budget. Calibration checks are recommended every year for seismic sensors so these devices are extremely popular.
Vibration Switches - electrical and mechanical vibration switches for general vibration monitoring. Hazardous area and explosion proof housings available.
Monitors - monitors for local display, alarm, shutdown, data recording. With the ability to communicate over Modbus, Ethernet TCP/IP.
Accessories - proximity and general accessories.
