Manufacturers need to keep the lines running to keep costs down so scheduling maintenance when it is not required is an issue. Timely detection of problems allows maintenance and prevents unscheduled downtime. In addition, appropriate machine monitoring can avoid the production of out of tolerance parts. With these considerations, PHD, Inc.’s Series KG Impact Sensor easily attaches to motion equipment to monitor the machine’s health. The sensor with its single-axis/bi-directional sensitivity measures impact and communicates the value to the user. In addition, the sensor counts impacts or extreme vibration (<400 Hz) and monitors centripetal forces to detect changes to provide an advanced warning of machine problems that could disrupt production.
