Hansford Sensors Ltd launches new vibration meter kit to help engineers protect industrial plants

Another new product has joined the extensive range of vibration monitoring products now available from Hansford Sensors Ltd. The brand new HS-620 Vibration Monitoring Kit contains a compact, portable digital vibration meter operating with a hand-held probe. It is designed for maintenance technicians to use to monitor vibration levels on important plant machinery, helping to find potential problems and so avoid future plant failure.

The new vibration monitoring kit will prove invaluable to engineers in monitoring the trend of vibration levels on motors, pumps, gearboxes, fans and all rotating machinery. Ideal as an entry-level unit for vibration monitoring, the meter's portability means that measurements can be taken in-situ in remote parts of the factory.

Conforming to the ISO 10816-3 Machine Vibration Standard, the unit can measure bearing condition and levels of velocity, acceleration and displacement, covering any of the four ISO machine group options ranging from large 300 KW machines (Group 1) down to simple pumps rated at 15 KW (Group 4). It has a 'HOLD' facility where the display will indicate the alarm status shown as 'OK', 'Vibration Alert' or 'Danger'.

The vibration meter is powered by an internal rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery which can operate for 48 hours continuously. Battery condition is displayed as an icon. The unit comes complete with both a mains powered and an in-car battery charger.

The HS-620 kit, which is available ex-stock, includes the vibration meter, the hand-held probe, a magnetic mount, mains and in-car chargers, an instruction manual, all contained within a protective carrying case.
