Data Collector and Analyzers

VIBXPERT II:
Portable Vibration Analyzer with Full Color Display, Fast Data Acquisition and Powerful Diagnostics Tools.

The VIBXPERT II™ handheld vibration analyzer combines the advantages of a rapid processor with a brilliant energy-efficient color VGA display. Enhanced with an Fmax of 51KHz and up to 102,400 Lines of Resolution, all machinery problems can be captured and easily analyzed on the VIBXPERT II™ large color screen.

The VIBXPERT II™ Basic platform is a 1-channel vibration data collector which can be upgraded at any time to 2 individually configured channels via a special passcode – user upgradable, does not require hardware changes.

All forms of machine vibrations, bearing conditions, process data and visual inspection information can be collected and stored on the expandable Compact Flash Card (up to 8 gigabyte) for report generation or for later transfer to the OMNITREND™ software for further analysis, reporting and archiving.

The VIBXPERT II™ vibration analyzer provides an easy-to-use icon driven platform that offers comprehensive analysis functionality for the diagnosis of simple or very complex vibration problems. Capabilities include order spectrum, phase, cepstrum, cross-channel phase, orbits, run-up and coast-down measurements, bump test, negative averaging and more. Analysis tools, including various cursor types, machine-specific frequency markers, signal post processing, and extensive bearing databases are included for evaluating each spectrum. Alarm notifications based on ISO standards or user-defined standards are visually identified with the aid of colored LEDs.

The VIBXPERT II™ is lightweight vibration meter – only 2.5 pounds! Its robust housing is dustproof and water resistant (IP65).

The VIBXPERT II™ vibration analyzer features modular functionality including dynamic balancing, extended time waveform recording, transient data capture, UFF file export, Modal/ODS support and more.

Failure Prevention Associates have gone above and beyond every time I have ever purchased equipment from them or hired them for field services. I highly recommend him for Vibration Services and equipment, ODS services, consulting services, PDMA equipment, Ultrasound testing, Laser Alignment equipment. I could go on and on about the services they provide

If you need a product or service for any industry where Predictive or Preventative Maintenance is used or needed Failure Prevention Associates would be the one to call.

You will not be disappointed!!!!

VIBXPERT™:
Data Collector/Vibration Analyzer

VIBXPERT™ is a lightweight, 2-channel, FFT data collector/vibration analyzer for monitoring and diagnosis of machine conditions. As a data collector, VIBXPERT™ records all forms of machine vibrations, bearing conditions, process data and visual inspection information. Collected machinery data is stored on an expandable Compact Flash Card (up to 8 gigabyte) and is transferred to the OMNITREND™ maintenance software for further evaluation, report generation and archiving.

VIBXPERT™ provides comprehensive analysis functionality for the diagnosis of complex vibration problems, with an easy to use icon-driven platform. Its capabilities include: order spectrum, phase, cepstrum, cross-channel phase, orbits, run-up and coast-down measurements. Analysis tools, including various cursor types, machine-specific frequency markers, signal post processing, and extensive bearing databases are included for evaluating each spectrum. With an Fmax of 51KHz, up to 102,400 Lines of Resolution and a large 1/2 VGA screen, all machinery problems can be captured and easily analyzed. Alarm notifications based on ISO10816 or user-defined standards are identified with the aid of colored LEDs. If any of the spectrum”s broadband or narrow band limits are exceeded, the LEDs are also activated.

The robust housing has an ingress protection rating of IP65, dustproof and water resistant, weighing only 2 pounds. The VIBXPERT™ is delivered with a carrying pouch having a breakaway shoulder strap for safety. The basic VIBXPERT™ platform is a 1-channel device, which can be upgraded to 2 individually configured channels via a special passcode. This upgrade does not require changes to the hardware. VIBXPERT™ can accept all sensor types for analog measurements. Several communications interfaces are supplied, including a trigger input, Ethernet, USB and serial connection (RS232).

Enjoy the benefits of free updates, low ownership cost and unlimited tech support from the proven leaders of maintenance technology.

VIBXPERT II™ ROTOR BALANCER:
Field Balancing in One or Two Planes

Vibration Monitoring Equipment by Failure Prevention Associates, Inc. The VIBXPERT II™ Balancer is extremely intuitive via the graphical user guide which leads the user through the balancing procedure step-by-step. A variety of balancing methods can be selected free (protractor) balancing, fixed mass, fixed locations or tape measure balancing. If necessary, all the attached masses can also be combined into a single mass. If it is not possible to add mass to a rotor, then the VIBXPERT™ can be reconfigured on the fly to calculate the mass that must be removed from the rotor. Built-in ISO tolerances alert the user when the equipment is within specification.

In addition to its balancing capabilities, the VIBXPERT II™ Balancer features vibration analysis, resonance tests and phase measurements to support the diagnosis of unbalance.

VIBXPERT™:
A New Choice for Balancing

In addition to its vibration analysis capabilities, the VIBXPERT™ features 1-plane and simultaneous 2-plane balancing.

Using the balancing program is extremely intuitive via the graphical user guide which leads the user through the balancing procedure step-by-step. A variety of balancing methods can be selected free (protractor) balancing, fixed mass, fixed locations or tape measure balancing. If necessary, all the attached masses can also be combined into a single mass. If it is not possible to add mass to a rotor, then the VIBXPERT™ can be reconfigured on the fly to calculate the mass that must be removed from the rotor. Built-in ISO tolerances alert the user when the equipment is within specification. Diagnostic tools, including phase, spectrum and time waveform are incorporated in this program to confirm unbalance is truly causing the vibration.
