Sensor selection - General purpose, Food and Beverage industry

Following are the top features required of a quality vibration sensor in the Food and Beverage industry, along with the reasons why:
  • Low frequency response ≤ 1,0 Hz: For low rotational speed of rolls
  • Small physical size: Small bearing and access restrictions
  • Corrosion precautions: Cleaning fluid and chemical attack
  • Integral cable or IP 68 connector/cable: Frequent hose-down environment
Good - General purpose monitoring:
  • CMSS 780C ()
  • CMSS 780C M8 (fig 2)
Better - Installation robustness:
  • CMSS 2100F ()
Best - Frequency and precision:
  • CMSS 2100 ()
  • CMSS 2200 ()
  • CMSS 793T-3 (fig 6)
  • CMSS 797T-1 ()
