AUTOMATION FOR MANUFACTURING

Vibration meter fits in the hand

At the recent Southern Manufacturing show in the UK, Monitran launched a compact, handheld instrument for measuring machinery vibration and temperature levels. It says that the MTN/VM220 is ideal for detecting early signs of component wear or failure in motors, gearboxes, pumps and other mechanical assemblies.

The meter, which complies with ISO10816-3, includes a colour LCD and can store up to 100 acceleration, velocity, displacement or temperature readings, time-stamped using a real-time clock.

The instrument has an easy-to-grip, tough rubberised case and is powered by a rechargeable battery. It is supplied with a probe containing a dual-output sensor with default sensitivities of 100mV/g and 10mV/°C. Also included are a magnetic base and spike (for use with the probe), a coiled cable with a four-pin Lumberg connector at each end, and a universal charger.
