Ground vibration monitoring

Jon Lawson

Brüel & Kjær today announced the release of its new Vibration Monitoring Terminal Type 3680.

The device enables users to effectively:

* Protect against structural damage risks in mining and construction

*  Monitor background vibration to ensure sensitive equipment operates correctly.

The robust unit provides uninterrupted, tri-axial, real-time ground vibration measurement to help avoid harming buildings. It automatically delivers alerts to avoid breeching set limits and provides reports proving regulatory compliance.

The Vibration Monitoring Terminal also reliably assesses vibration impact from traffic. It enables users to efficiently conduct background surveys prior to new construction, as well as receive accurate data to evaluate vibration mitigation techniques.

In addition, the system monitors background vibration for organisations such as hospitals, semiconductor manufacturing plants and museums. It helps ensure patient comfort at medical facilities, trusted monitoring of delicate equipment to avoid costly errors and reduced risk of artefact damage.

The Vibration Monitoring Terminal operates stand-alone or with Sentinel for comprehensive, multi-location, vibration compliance monitoring.

Standalone devices come with a smartphone app enabling setup, remote display and operation from anywhere and data transfer to standard post-processing applications.
