Can you feel the vibration?
If it’s obvious enough then, yes! But what if it’s not so obvious?
Wouldn’t it be great to know if you’re about to have a problem because of component vibrations you don’t know are happening?
Pepperl+Fuchs has you covered with the VIM series vibration sensor.
How it works
Fans, belts, gear boxes – basically most of the components on a machine have the potential to fail due to vibration.
Over time the wear on components in a machine causes vibrations that can lead to failure and downtime.
The VIM sensor can provide early warning signs of potential problems. Therefore, you can take corrective action BEFORE the failure occurs.
As a result the preventative measures can improve safety, additionally save time and money!
So many applications!
Check out the available sizes
- VIM3 is the smallest in the series. It’s suited for less complex applications and comes with IO-Link interface for process data, parameterization and diagnosis.
- VIM6 is designed to be used in high temperature applications where there is extended temperature and vibration measurements needed.
- VIM8 is suitable for harsh and hazardous environments that require SIL 2/PLd ratings.
The VIM sensor is certified to SIL 1/PLc and SIL 2/PL d, therefore they can be used in safety-critical applications where there is serious risk of injury or damage.
The most important thing to remember is that the VIM sensor is a valuable tool.
Other important things to remember includes its reliability, cost-effectiveness, and ability to provide early warning of potential problems.
