GE Bently Nevada 200150 Accelerometer Calibration
Validation of GE Bently Nevada TrendMaster Sensors with Portable Vibration Calibrator
GE Bently Nevada TrendMaster* 200150, 200155, and 200157 general purpose case-mounted piezoelectric accelerometers are often used for balance of plant (BOP) asset condition monitoring, protecting important equipment such as pumps, fans, and motors.
These transducers are designed for use in the field with Bently Nevada’s Transducer Interface Modules (TIMs or proTIMs) connected to the TrendMaster Dynamic Scanning Module (DSM) data acquisition system. The DSM is fully integrated with GE’s System1 Diagnostic and Monitoring Software.
Take a look at the following video to see how to calibrate a GE Bently Nevada 200150 TrendMaster Accelerometer using a Portable Vibration Calibrator Model 9100D or 9110D from The Modal Shop. (Note that GE BN Models 200155 and 200157 are calibrated using the same process.)

As with any sensor or condition monitoring system, it is important to calibrate accelerometers and loop check the entire system periodically to ensure your vibration protection system is doing its job to keep your employees and assets safe. The Modal Shop’s Portable Vibration Calibrator allows users to do just that, testing all elements of the system from the sensors to the software.
As you can see, the Portable Vibration Calibrator makes calibrating BN 200150, BN 200155, and BN 200157 accelerometers a simple and straightforward process.
Why Use a Portable Vibration Calibrator to Validate Your TrendMaster Sensors and Condition Monitoring Systems?
Create NIST-traceable calibration certificates directly from the saved data with no additional data entry using the supplied Report Generation Workbook
Receive immediate pass/fall feedback with tests pre-programmed using the Report Generation Workbook
Testing can be performed by anyone, even a vibration novice
Connects to the USB on the Portable Vibration Calibrator to provide 5 VDC excitation voltage to 5-pin connector sensor
Connects to test sensor input on PVC to allow PVC to collect sensor data
Compatible with GE BN 200150, GE BN 200155, GE BN 200157, and other 5-pin sensors powered with 5 VDC.
Adds semi-automation capability with pre-programmed frequency and amplitude points
Allows anyone, even someone with little to no vibration experience, to step through test points and create NIST-traceable calibration certificates with The Modal Shop's 9110D
Included on all shakers shipped after Oct. 1, 2018. Customers with older 9110D Portable Vibration Calibrators are eligible for a free upgrade. Contact The Modal Shop for more details. Depending upon the age of the unit, it is possible that it need not be returned to our lab for the upgrade.
