The vibration meter is equipped with a mode that allows a measurement according to ISO 10816-3 to be carried out. The vibration meter analyzes the measured values and automatically shows a good / bad evaluation on the display. The vibration meter is supplied with a sensor on a spiral cable, magnet adapter, service bag and batteries. The ISO factory certificate completes the scope of delivery.





Vibration analyzer with external sensor / data logger function

The vibration analyzer is the ideal companion for checking vibrating parts, machines and plant. With the external vibration sensor of the vibration meter, the vibration displacement up to 3.9 mm, the vibration velocity up to 399.9 mm/s and the vibration acceleration up to 399.9 m/s² can be determined. RMS, peak, peak-to-peak and crest factor are available as measurement parameters on the vibration meter. Another function of the vibration measuring device is the automatic evaluation according to ISO 10816-3. Accordingly, the vibration meter can determine the current vibration state of a machine via a good/bad evaluation. This means that the vibration meter is used, for example, for repair and maintenance work on machines.



Vibration analyzer with internal memory / route measurement

The vibration analyzer is an ideal measuring device for fast and precise checking of vibrating parts, machines and systems. This vibration meter uses the external vibration sensor to determine the vibration displacement (measuring range 0.000 … 3.9 mm), the vibration velocity (measuring range 0.00 … 399.9 mm/s) and the vibration acceleration (measuring range 0.0 … 399.9 m/s²). Various measurement parameters are available for the vibration meter, such as RMS, peak, peak-peak and crest factor. The vibration meter is equipped with a mode that allows a measurement to be automatically evaluated according to the limit values of ISO 10816-3.



Measurement of acceleration, vibration velocity and displacement

The vibration analyzer is used as a hand-held measuring device for the individual assessment of vibrations on machines and systems. With the help of this vibration analyzer, the actual state can easily be determined on site. Thus, corresponding changes can be made directly on site after the measurement. Thereafter, the new condition can be assessed. Thus, the vibration analyzer serves as a measuring device for a relative measurement on different machines. The vibration analyzer serves essentially as precautionary or preventive maintenance of production machines. Very often, the vibration analyzer is used to assess the state of smaller electric motors.




Vibration meter for vibration measurement on machines

Rotating components in machines generally cause machine vibrations which can go over to the entire machine via mechanically coupled components. This creates a mixture of vibration with different frequencies. This machine vibration can have different effects some of which may be desired (e. g., in conveyors or vibrating sieves) – however, in most cases they are undesirable and cause poor manufacturing qualities and increased wear of the machine. Increased wear and tear due to machine vibrations leads to reduced running times, higher failure rates and higher maintenance expenditure, i. e. to avoidable costs as a whole.


Vibration analyzer with 4 GB data memory / Measuring range 0 … 200 mm/s²

The vibration analyzer has a measuring range of 0 … 200 m/s² for acceleration. In addition to acceleration, the vibration meter can also measure speed, displacement, frequency and an ISO 18016-3 measurement. During the vibration measurement, an FFT view is simultaneously displayed on the vibration meter. By pressing a button, it is possible to switch from the FFT analysis to the actual wave view of the vibration. This makes it possible to analyse and evaluate a vibration even better with the vibration meter. The magnetic holder of the vibration sensor of the vibration meter is designed in such a way that it can be attached to curvatures with a minimum radius of 20 mm / 0.78″.

This mode is useful for daily monitoring of equipment: pumps, gearboxes, electric drives and turbines.



3-axis acceleration up to 1600 Hz

The acceleration sensor of this 3-axis data logger has a sampling rate of 1600 Hz. The sensor mesures the current acceleration (3 axes), for instance in case of a shock or vibration. The measurements are made in pre-set (selectable) time intervals. The data measured with the internal 3-axis acceleration sensor are saved to a 32 GB memory card. This makes the data logger perfectly suitable to determine the acceleration for the purposes of fault diagnostics / stress test of components, machine monitoring, shock measurements and preventive maintenance in general.





Machine stethoscope to listen to bearings and motors / 32 sound levels

The automotive-testing mechanics stethoscope PCE-S 42 is designed for listening to individual machine parts, which enables you to carry out maintenance and repair work using the machine stethoscope. The use of a machine stethoscope thus makes it easier to listen to sound phenomena in bearings and motors. This makes it possible to amplify noises that imply that the machine is slightly damaged, which can cause severe impairments and damage to the machine if not observed. The machine stethoscope comes with headphones the shape of which is adapted to the human head and thus are perfectly suitable to be used in noisy environments. The big, padded earpieces have a noise suppressing effect and at the same time offer wearing comfort.

The frequency of the PCE-LES 103 can be continuously adjusted between 1 and 5000 Hz (60 – 300,000 flashes per minute). The high-power LEDs used ensure a particularly long service life of the light sources. At 6,000 flashes per minute and a distance of 30 cm, the stroboscope achieves an illuminance of 2,900 lux. A long operating time is achieved by the large Li-ion battery.

To measure the tension of V-belts or drive belts

The PCE-BTM 2000 is a measuring instrument to determine the tension of V-belts or drive belts. Belt tension can only be measured when the belt is not in operation. A small impulse with the help of a beater is enough to make the belt vibrate. With a measuring probe and a sensor beam, the generated vibration frequency is determined. The belt tension is calculated on the basis of the measuring data of the natural frequency as well as the belt mass and the length of the free belt span. It is not necessary to enter the belt mass and the belt length. The maximum service life of V-belts or drive belts can only be achieved with ideal tension.



Digital force gauge for tensile and compressive force measurement up to 500 N

The PCE-DFG N 500 is a digital force gauge for tensile and compressive force measurement up to 500 N. It has a resolution of 0.1 N. The measured values are shown on a large display with backlight which is rotatable by 180 °. Therefore, reading the measured values correctly is possible in any position and at any time. The outstanding accuracy of ±0.1 % f. s. is confirmed by the factory calibration certificate that comes with the meter. In addition to the internal memory with sufficient capacity for 100 readings, a USB interface is available for data transfer.

Various eyes or hooks with M10 or M12 thread can be adapted into the measuring cells. However, own devices with this thread can be mounted to the measuring cell. The measured data can be stored and exported. Operation is simple and the evaluation can be used for various analyses, for example in Excel tables. The PCE-DFG 2000I force gauge has an internal load cell and is supplied with five different load cells.



For the measurement of compression forces in mechanical systems

The hydraulic force transducer PCE HFG series is used for the absorption of static pressure forces and is made of stainless steel. The force transducer can measure forces over a long period of time due to its independence from power sources. With the integrated drag indicator the respective PEAK value is stored for later read out. The force transducer uses the measuring principle of hydraulic transmission of forces. The forces applied to the plunger are transmitted to the dial gauge via the medium and are displayed on the Newton scale [N]. Due to the 27 mm ring opening, it is also possible to use the force transducer axially and to determine axial shaft forces, for example.

This certificate is a target / actual comparison on a traceable reference standard and thus serves as proof of the measurement accuracy. The measurement uncertainty of the torque measuring device is only 0.5 % of the measuring range.
