Monitran’s new hand-held meter, the MTN/VM220, is ideal for detecting the early signs of component wear or failure in pumps, motors, gearboxes and other mechanical assemblies.

Southern Manufacturing & Electronics, Farnborough, United Kingdom – Monitran, a leader in the development and manufacture of transducers for the measurement of vibration, proximity and displacement, has launched the MTN/VM220; a compact, handheld meter for measuring vibration levels.

The MTN/VM220 conforms to ISO10816-3 and has been developed for detecting signs of component wear in machinery, motors, gearboxes, pumps and other mechanical assemblies. The meter features a colour LCD display and has the ability to store up to 100 readings of acceleration, velocity or displacement against a real-time clock.

Measuring just 122 x 78 x 28mm, the MTN/VM220 has an easy-to-grip industrial rubberised case and rechargeable battery. It is supplied with a probe into which is integrated a general purpose sensor, the MTN/2200, which has a default sensitivity of 100mV/g. Also included are a magnetic base and spike (for use with the probe), a coiled cable (0.5m nominal to 2m extended) with a 4-pin Lumberg connector at each end, and a universal (battery) charger; all in a foam-lined and durable carry case.

Andy Anthony, Monitran’s Managing Director, comments: “We’re extremely pleased with the look, feel and performance of our new vibration meter. During its development our engineers and sales professionals worked closely together to ensure the VM220 would incorporate the latest technologies to deliver practical and useful features. Also, having hinted late last year that the meter would be launched at Southern Manufacturing & Electronics, 2013 we received several early enquiries and advance orders from customers in the UK and abroad.”

The MTN/VM220 is available immediately.
