MC PepperlFuchs Monitoring Condition of Plants w Vibration Sensors 3a 400

To enable long-term monitoring of vibrations, Pepperl+Fuchs recently launched a new portfolio of vibration sensors. You can find out what distinguishes these products in the following blog article. Using a wind turbine as an application example, we will also show you how you can use vibration and acceleration sensors in combination to keep an eye on both long-term and short-term changes in vibration.

The portfolio of vibration sensors

Pepperl+Fuchs has recently started offering a range of vibration sensors to perform reliable measurements of vibration velocity and acceleration in low or high frequency ranges. Compared to similar products, Pepperl+Fuchs’ vibration sensors have approvals up to SIL 2, a large measuring range of up to 128 mm/s, and automatic condition detection for ball bearings. Due to their robust housing and encapsulated electronics, the sensors impress with maintenance-free operation and a particularly long service life.

The three designs in the portfolio are available with different certifications and approvals. In this way, you can find the right vibration sensor for every application:

  • VIM3 series: The compact VIM3 series is suitable for applications up to SIL 1/PL c, and has output options for analog or IO-Link.
  • VIM6 series: The VIM6 series is approved for hazardous areas up to Zone 1/21. With an extended temperature operating range of -40°C … +125 °C, the sensors are ideal for high-temperature areas.
  • VIM8 series: Due to a particularly robust housing made of duplex steel, the vibration sensors of the VIM8 series are designed for use in offshore applications as well as in harsh and hazardous areas of Zone 1/21. Moreover, the sensors have an approval up to SIL 2/PL d.

 

Vibration sensors vs. acceleration sensors

Not only vibration sensors, but also acceleration sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs are used to measure changes in vibration: Both record the vibration acceleration in g. Nevertheless, the sensors differ in their technical operating principle and are therefore each suitable for different applications.

MC Rollon New Digital Platform Delivers Fast Product Selection 1 400 

Rollon, a leading manufacturer of linear motion systems, guides, linear actuators, and gantry systems, has unveiled a new digital tool to help engineers design equipment and systems more efficiently.

The new ecosystem consists of two core elements: a redesigned corporate website and myRollon — a revolutionary tool that personalizes product selection.

The website has been expanded with brand new content and graphics showcasing technical concepts, application examples and industry insights for designers and planners looking to implement linear motion into their applications.

It also offers numerous gateways to myRollon, where designers can pre-select their desired motion component and apply various filters to generate a list of products that best meet their application needs.

Registered users can also access a reserved portal to retrieve searches as well as interface with Rollon experts via email, web meetings and live chats.

The new ecosystem — accessible in 14 languages and in 18 countries — is part of Rollon’s continuous commitment to make product selection faster and more user-friendly.
