The sensor can be implemented in a system that detects velocity, position, shock, vibration, or the acceleration of gravity to determine orientation (Doscher 2005) A system consisting of two orthogonal sensors is capable of sensing pitch and roll.
At this time, unfortunately, linearity in frequency and amplitude of this kind of accelerometers is too limited, if compared to e.g. piezoelectric accelerometer, as a consequence measurements can be very inaccurate.
Amplitude and frequency of vibration. Temperature of the vibrator. Inclination of the vibrator. Deviation of the vibrator. Operating time. V16AF50 The V16AF50 sensor is a vibration sensor specially designed for working in the adverse conditions encountered in public works and on below ground work sites etc..
Seismic transmitters provide a 4-20mA DC signal output proportional to the vibration amplitude, and are ideal for applications where a PLC, DCS, or other automation system will be used instead of a stand-alone vibration monitor.
define motor, frequency and level of vibration, range of control and preference for analog or digital control. Easiest to control with filter and PLL to track frequency of vibration but not amplitude. You need to know all these transfer functions for a perfect design. All inputs and electrical/physical outputs.
establishing the frequency at which the vibration occurs, we get a clearer picture of what could be causing it. • Amplitude is the size of the vibration signal. The amplitude of the vibration signal determines the severity of the fault. The higher the amplitude, the higher the vibration, the bigger the problem.
The sensor operating environment must be evaluated to ensure that the sensor's signal range not only covers the vibration amplitude of interest, but also the highest vibration levels that are present at that measurement point.
Velocity sensors are used for low to medium frequency measurements (1 to 1000 Hz) and are useful for vibration monitoring and balancing operations on rotating machinery. They have lower sensitivity to high frequency vibrations than accelerometers and are therefore less susceptible to amplifier overloads.
However as the sensor output is the true RMS value of vibrations in the specified frequency range (2..10,000 Hz) it is not possible to obtain the frequency (or to be more precise the wide frequency band) of the vibration with this sensor.
Vibration is most commonly measured using a ceramic piezoelectric sensor or accelerometer. An accelerometer is a sensor that measures the dynamic acceleration of a physical device as a voltage. Accelerometers are full-contact transducers typically mounted directly on high-frequency elements, such as rolling-element bearings, …
This paper reports the principle of operation, design aspects, experimentation and performance of an extrinsic fibre optic displacement sensor for the measurement of amplitude and frequency of vibration.
