Digiducer™ + Smartphone = The New Vibration Meter

With the help of Motionics apps, Digiducer turns smartphones into vibration meters

 

Problem

Handheld vibration meters are the traditional portable solutions for taking vibration level measurements. These measurements are useful for detecting vibration issues in machinery. However, once issues are detected, further analysis often requires more detailed vibration data. Acquiring this necessary data typically means using extra equipment and bringing in a vibration consultant. This additional level of complication can increase costs as well as shutdown time.

Solution

Motionics, a supplier of measurement solutions, has several smartphone apps that turn the Digiducer into a multifunctional vibration analysis tool. With Motionics’ Apps and a Digiducer accelerometer, technicians can easily check equipment vibration levels, evaluate vibration severity based on ISO10816, view FFT spectrum, and create a simple test report. If a high vibration level occurs and further analysis is required, the Apps allow vibration recording from a Digiducer. This data can be sent to vibration specialists remotely for a chance of early diagnosis, decreasing shutdown time and costs.
