Portable vibration meter stores up to 100 readings

Jon Lawson

An upgraded version of its portable vibration meter with a bright, easily readable display has been introduced by Monitran. When connected to a constant current type accelerometer the compact MTN/VM330D stores up to 100 time-stamped readings, which can be transferred to a PC using the USB cable supplied.

A trouble-shooting tool, the unit displays an instant readout of RMS, peak, peak-peak, crest factor and bearing condition and gives a colour-coded indication of machine status.

Conforming to ISO 10816-3, it has a large colour LCD display and a rugged protective rubber case. Its rechargeable lithium-ion battery comes with a worldwide charger and delivers a battery life of over 20 hours. Other features include a switchable low pass filter and an audio output for listening to the vibration directly.

The MTN/VM330D is suitable for monitoring the performance of a wide range of machinery, including engines, gearboxes, motors, turbines and pumps. It is supplied with Monitran's MTN/2200 general purpose accelerometer as standard, with other types available on request.

Customers who already have Monitran's MTN/VM220 vibration meter can return it to take advantage of an introductory upgrade offer.
