One sensor device for all conditions

The Intelligent Vibration Analysis Sensor (IVAS) enables predictive maintenance through vibration-based condition monitoring and so contributes to significant cost reductions.

By analyzing the frequency spectrum of structure born sound up to 20 kHz,created by machines and other moving parts e.g. in pumps, motors, linear drives or ventilation systems, it is possible to assess the wear of bearings and many other components. This effectively allows a very early warning and the prevention of unplanned standstills.

For process monitoring, the Intelligent Vibration Analysis Sensor enables an integrated continuous quality control and gives the information that is necessary, to set the optimal process parameters.

Thus, it allows to increase efficiency, machine usage and quality.
