What is Condition Monitoring?

Condition Monitoring is the process to detect a fault in a machine or equipment by observing parameters such as vibration, temperature and current. Condition Monitoring systems give the opportunity to spot faults that can lead to catastrophic…

Vibration Glossary

Heavy Point: It is the angular position of the unbalance vector at a given lateral position on the shaft. The heavy spot typically does not change with the rotational speed. Received Signal Strength Indication(RSSI): Shows the received signal…

How is Fault Detection Performed?

Although the great differences in the nature of maintenance operations in industrial facilities, it contains the processes where similar quantities such as; vibration, temperature, oil quality, etc. are measured. During these processes, data…

Parameter Selections in Vibration Measurement

Vibration measurements are performed to determine the response of machine equipment to both internal and external forces. In mechanical systems, different points of the same equipment are different in geometry, material, etc. That’s why they…
