Sensor selection - Metalworking industry

Following are the top features required of a quality vibration sensor in the Metalworking industry, along with the reasons why:
  • Low frequency response ≤ 1,0 Hz: For low rotational speed of machines
  • Physically robust: Misuse, abuse and flying debris
  • Corrosion precautions: Hot, dusty and corrosive environment
  • Good signal-to-noise ratio: For bearing defect detection

Good - General purpose monitoring:

- Installation robustness:

Best - Elevated temperatures:
