Weschler Instruments is a manufacturer and distributor of electrical and electronic measurement equipment. Customers worldwide use our products in power plants, steel mills, chemical plants, paper mills and other industrial applications that require rugged, reliable and accurate instrumentation.
Accelerometers sense vibration commonly found in most industrial machinery. Applications for acceleration and velocity sensors include machinery health monitoring of motors, fans, pumps, gearboxes, blowers, machine tool spindles, compressors, chillers, rollers, and mixers. Maintenance professionals use accelerometers for predictive maintenance to lower overall cost and increase machinery performance.
ESD-protected, EMI/RFI shielded
316L stainless steel casing
Isolated to prevent ground loops
Can be hosed down or submersed (with proper connector)
The Wilcoxon Research 4-20mA sensors include an accelerometer and vibration transmitter combined in one rugged housing.
These sensors output a signal proportional to the overall vibration level. This type of output is commonly accepted by process control systems such as a PLC, DCS or SCADA system. By connecting into the existing process control system, the user is able to monitor machinery health without the investment and learning curve commonly associated with traditional vibration monitoring systems that may require custom software and data collection routes or expensive online systems.
4-20 mA output sensors contain an accelerometer and miniaturized vibration transmitter all within the sensor housing. ...
