Monitoring Systems

Sensors alone do not provide the complete answer to measuring vibration and using the data to better understand machine health. Monitran offers a short range of monitoring systems that can be used not only to measure vibration but to display values, constantly watch the levels and take action in case of excess and dangerous vibrations. These range through the following:

  • simple portable vibration meters ideal for spot measurements around the plant
  • single channel vibration switches integrating sensors with a measuring and alarm unit
  • multi-channel permanently installed monitors
  • the latest microprocessor controlled system with colour display and programmability to handle any vibration problem in machinery or non-machinery applications

In all the above different controllers are linked to the ideal sensor for measurement to provide the user with flexible and effective solutions to protecting the users assets. These systems can be found in the categories on the left.

Vibration switches


MTVS0004 The MTVS0004 Vibration Switch offers a low cost, simple to install and operate solution to protect all sorts of rotating machinery; motors, pumps, fans, gearboxes etc. It’s durable case with high IP rating is suitable for long life in harsh industrial environments. Measurements are made in velocity and compatible with ISO10816 Machine Vibration Severity Test. Just bolt the unit to a flat surface on your machine, set the appropriate alarm and trip levels, connect the relays to switch alarms or to power down the machine then connect to the power supply for continuous protection. For restricted access situations or where the vibration must be monitored on bearing housings external vibration sensors may be used with mounting diameters down to 15mm diameter. Choose either latching alarm relays requiring operator reset following an over vibration incident or non-latching relays to automatically resume operation as soon as the fault has cleared.
