VIBinspector - versatile portable vibration analyzer with balancing feature

The VIBinspector is a single channel device recording vibration time signals together with machine's rotational speed registered on the second channel. Thanks to advanced vibration diagnostics methods the system detects in advance slowly developing machine failures like: bearings or gears damage, imbalance, misalignment and weak foundation. Early warning against failures makes it possible to replace the faulty elements before they cause further, greater damage to the machine.

Another important usage of VIBinspector is machine balancing feature that can be used for fans, pumps and motors. Now it is easy to protect machines from the adverse influence of imbalance, just go through quick 4-step process and it is done.

The device can be used as an independent solution for vibration diagnostics, or as a supplement to the VIBstudio online condition monitoring system. In case when it is used to complement the stationary system, the VIBinspector is particularly useful to monitor less critical machines, which do not require the online monitoring, or on machines, where for various reasons, the online system cannot be installed.

Key benefits:

  • Less planned and unplanned down time
  • Optimized work parameters
  • Higher endurance
  • Better reliability
  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Optimized overhaul plan
  • Moderate price

The VIBinspector has a very friendly, modern user interface based entirely on a big (7") touch screen. All the fundamental features have been designed in such manner, that it is possible to use them just with the fingers. Only the advanced operations, such as e.g. scaling the graphs, require using the stylus. Efficient industrial computer it is based on, advanced software included and full compatibility with the stationary condition monitoring system make the VIBinspector a very powerful and versatile device.

New feature - extended functionality
