Vibration Switch Testing Using a Shaker Table
Accurate Testing and Validation of Critical Alarms on an Electronic Vibration Switch via Shaker Table
Learn how to test and validate the proper operation of vibration switches, designed for vibration monitoring, utilizing a SmartSine™ Calibration Driver Model 9000A, as well as a Shaker Table Model K2075E-HT. The 4-20 mA vibration output can also be confirmed with a multi-meter, comparing to displayed values in the control room. In addition to vibration switches, a 9000A and a shaker table can be used to test a broad variety of heavy payload devices that are either too large or too heavy for testing using a traditional Portable Vibration Calibrator.
Electronic vibration switches use a built-in precision accelerometer to accurately monitor vibration levels and protect critical assets such as motors, pumps, and fans used in industrial production environments. Electronic switches have a variety of features such as dual alert and alarm relays, 4-20 mA vibration output, and raw vibration signal for analysis. Their rugged piezoelectric sensing element and lack of moving parts make electronic vibration switches more accurate and reliable than mechanical vibration switches.
