VIBCONNECT® RF: Wireless condition monitoring and diagnosis
No restrictions, great flexibility and advanced technology – these terms accurately describe our VIBCONNECT® RF solution. This innovative radio-based
online system offers you virtually unrestricted flexibility in the planning and installation of your monitoring solution. VIBCONNECT® RF does away with
costly cabling of the sensors. You also save time
and money during operation, as VIBCONNECT® RF
is fully automated and comes with a self-contained
power source. The system can be extended at any
stage: simply mount the additional sensor units on
the machines, register them at the radio cell and all
programmed measurements are then performed
as required.

Wireless Condition Monitoring
ens up new possibilities
Versatile use – easy installation
Typical installation of a sensor unit
The bridge is the core unit of the radio cell, which
receives the measurement signals from the sensor
units and calculates the characteristic values, spectra and envelopes. The data is then transmitted via
Ethernet to the OMNITREND® software platform
for further analysis, reporting and archiving. The
sensor units are provided through the bridge with
the measuring configurations programmed in the
OMNITREND software. The radio frequency is not
commonly used and thus virtually interference-free.
LAN (Ethernet)
Everything at
your fingertips –
The OMNITREND® analysis software ensures roundthe-clock access to the machine condition data.
The software comes with an intuitive interface for
fast and user-friendly analysis and archiving of the
measurements. Its reporting functions highlight
critical conditions and enable you to summarize all
relevant information in properly formatted reports.
Configuration of the measuring functions is made
easy as the software guides you through the various
Sensor unit and sensors
The sensor unit and the sensors are installed on the
machine and connected to each other with short
cables. These components can be positioned wherever the measuring signal is strongest and radio reception is best. Each sensor simultaneously records
vibration, roller bearing condition and temperature,
with minimum power consumption. Between the
measuring cycles, the sensor unit is set to standby
mode to ensure long battery life.
