PRUFTECHNIK releases new high-speed data collector

Published by
World Cement,

PRUFTECHNIK, the Bavarian manufacturing company, has developed and produced the new VIBSCANNER® 2 high-speed data collection device. Produced under the comapny's premise of 'keep it smart and simple', the result is a vibration measurement instrument that makes data acquisition more efficient.

Thanks to its groundbreaking measuring principle and the parallel data acquisition, VIBSCANNER 2 collects all relevant health information of the machine at the push of a button. Measurement times are up to four times shorter making it possible for employees on site to take care of additional maintenance tasks.

The design of the device is such that even new or untrained personnel can effectively perform a measurement – without any prior training. The intuitive graphical user interface, the integrated RFID reader, and the VIBCODE technology, assist the employee in taking repeatable and error-free measurements.

Depending on the filter setting, VIBSCANNER 2 measures parameters, spectra and time waveforms synchronously on three axes. In combination with a triaxial sensor, the high-speed data collector provides even more condition information for each measurement location at the push of a button. This creates an overall image of the machine health without affecting the measuring time.

The VIBSCANNER 2 also offers a touch display that is shock-proof, high-contrast, and glove-enabled. The ergonomic design ensures fatigue-free work and is suitable for both right and left-handers. Thanks to the long battery life of 10 hours, the measurement task becomes truly carefree.
