Vibrocontrol VC-1500 is a powerful low-priced solution for 2 channel measurement and monitoring of

  • Casing vibration 
  • Rolling-element bearing condition 
  • Temperature 

Either 1 or 2 bearings of your machine can be monitored simultaneously.

A wide range of standard current driven accelerometers can be connected, including AS-063, AS-063.

Temperature can be measured either with a seperate PT100 RTD, or from the integrated sensor provided with the sensor AS-062/T1.

Vibration monitoring
Measurement of casing vibration is in accordance with the ISO Standard 10816. The two actual measured values are shown in the display, as well as their percentage values with respect to the set limit setpoint. A violation of the preset limit values is signalled visually (LED) as well as through the built-in relays for Alert and Danger alarms.  

Rolling-element bearing condition monitoring
For acquiring the rolling-element bearing condition, a DFT of the sensor signal in the range 500 to 5000 cycles per second is performed, and the sum of the largest RMS value of vibration acceleration is formed. A comparison with the measured value of the measured value of the bearing (in as new condition), the "Bearing Condition Value" is displayed. 

Trend measurement
provide you with an overview of the  measurement trend, the VC-1500 has a trend measurement function for the casing vibration, rolling-element bearing condition and temperature. The display is provided right at the instrument over a selectable period between 10 days and 10 months.
