Vibxpert II is the latest addition to the Prueftechnik family of portable route-based vibration data collectors. The device is rugged, lightweight, and combines the advantages of a rapid processor with an 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 unit’s color screen.
The equipment’s basic platform is a 1-channel device which can be upgraded to two individually configured channels with a passcode. The user upgrade means it needs no 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 GB) for generating reports or later transfer to software for analysis, reporting, and archiving.
The data collector provides an icon-driven platform with comprehensive analysis functions for diagnosing simple to complex vibration problems. Capabilities include order spectrum, phase, cross-channel phase, orbits, run up and coast-down measurements, bump test, negative averaging, and more. Analysis tools include machine-specific frequency markers and signal post processing. Extensive bearing databases help evaluate each spectrum. Alarm notifications based on ISO standards or user-defined standards are identified with colored LEDs.
The data collector also allows dynamic field balancing, extended time waveform recording, transient-data capture, UFF file exports, Modal/ODS support, and more.
