Wireless Vibration Sensor

Wireless Vibration Sensor

MSG Vibration Meters use an accelerometer to measure g-force on 3 axes and then determines speed and frequency from this measurement. The sensor measures vibration once every Measurement Interval, which can be set as low as 1 minute and as high the Heartbeat Interval. The sensor is designed to measure continuous vibration and be low powered so it captures vibration for less than a second during its Measurement Interval. The sensor uses a Sensitivity Threshold to filter noise or low level vibrations. If this threshold is set to 0 then any vibration captured during the Measurement Interval will contribute to the duty cycle and will be analyzed, even very low level vibrations. The Vibration Meter will also report the duty cycle, or how long the sensor was measuring vibrations throughout the heartbeat. Users have the ability to set thresholds for alerts and to send alerts via SMS text and/or emails. Sensor conditions and readings are transmitted and displayed to a web and mobile accessible Dashboard via Cellular or Ethernet Gateways.

Suggested Applications & Use Cases
  • Inclination and vibration testing
  • Assembly line monitoring
  • Orientation sensing
  • Smart machines, smart structures and smart materials
  • Impact load sensing
Product Features
  • Reports data as speed (mm/s) and frequency (Hz) on all three axes, and how long the sensor was measuring during the interval.
  • Adjustable measurement methods: Peak acceleration RMS, peak velocity RMS, and true RMS.
  • Superior Range: Offer 3 to 4 times the range of standard sensor platforms, extending non-line-of-sight reach to an exceptional 1,200+ feet through walls (12-14 walls typical).
  • Long Battery Life: Advanced power management provides 10+ years
  • Secure Wireless Communications: Encrypt-RF® Security for all sensor data messages, maintaining security at all communication points.
  • Data storage: Integrated on-board data storage allows sensors to store data messages if communication to a wireless gateway is disrupted (power outage, Internet outage, or out of range).
  • Over-the-air updates allow products to be updated remotely if new fixes or features become available.

* Actual range may vary depending on environment.
