Introducing an Innovative and Inexpensive way to perform Vibrational Analysis utilizing an Apple iPad and our Custom Designed Analysis Software.
Predictive maintenance involves the trending and analysis of machinery performance parameters to detect and identify developing problems before failure and extensive damage can occur. If problems can be detected early, when defects are minor and do not affect performance, and if the nature of the problem can be identified while the machine runs:
The Apple iPad, using the application SPINDLESCOPE allows the user to take readings and leverage the powerful platform of the iPad. With one touch, vibrational reading can be collected and then emailed for a real time analysis by an off site expert.
Graphical readings can be saved for later comparison and analysis of data.
InCheck miniature sensors use MEMS microchip sensing elements sealed in a rugged casing for industrial use. Unlike traditional piezoelectric accelerometers, MEMS sensors can be directly interfaced with standard ADCs without the need for analog signal conditioning.
The MEMS sensing elements have stable characteristics over time and a range of temperatures, eliminating the need for field calibration and allowing for precise measurements. The sensitivity of accelerometers varies within a tight range of ±2%. Such accuracy in not achievable with piezoelectric accelerometers.
The low power requirements make it possible to incorporate an optional precision temperature sensing element within the sensor body, creating a dual sensor. The temperature output is linear with an accuracy of ±1°C at 25°C
Since the sensors do not require field calibration and can withstand wide temperature fluctuation (-40 to +125°C) it is easy to have them permanently installed.
