Ifm electronic’s VK vibration monitoring switch is designed to permanently mount on a machine to continuously monitor the machine's vibration level. By detecting vibration level changes when they first occur, the VK can help to prevent equipment from catastrophically failing, reduce secondary damage, and eliminate expensive downtime. The compact VK switch measures only 73 mm high and features two setup dials that rotate to quickly establish the maximum velocity setpoint and time delay. The switch combines both switching function and transmitter into one small housing. It is designed to monitor vibration on motors, pumps, compressors, fans, centrifuges and vibratory feeders. It also offers the advantages of a high performance vibration monitoring device at a fraction of the price. The switch eliminates the challenges found in traditional vibration monitoring such as spectrum analysis and data collectors. Implementation is based on the ISO 10816 standard which defines vibration monitoring of machinery.
