Looking for customized cables for your vibration testing but having a problem with manufacturers who won't entertain your request much less listen to you? Write to us via email if you do need customized cables to do your vibration testing.
Case study - we worked with our principal DJB to design and manufacture a new cable for our customer to perform testing under high pressure in a 100 meter watery environment. The cable was used with a DJB triaxial accelerometer. The constraint faced by the customer was that there was limited space to install the cables and accelerometer to enable the data acquisition system to collect the data. DJB was able to meet the tight schedule required and the subsequent testing was successfully carried out.

May 2014 - NEW LOW POWER, LOW VOLTAGE SENSOR
Meggitt has just released a new low power, low voltage sensor under the Wilcoxon brand. Using new technology and innovative designs, the LPA100T operates from low-voltage power over the 3 to 5 volt range and consumes less than 300 uWatts (at 3 volts). By comparison the traditional IEPE sensors typically operates at 48 mWatts.
The new patent-pending circuitry of LPA100T allows for minimizing of sensor settling time to less than ten milliseconds while still preserving the low frequency response; comparing to traditional IEPE sensors which can require up to 3 seconds for measurement settlement time. To further enhance you measurement, the LPA100T also includes a built-in temperature sensor for monitoring at the mounting location. For more information check out here.
May 2014 - DJB MAGAZINE FEATURE
Congratulations to our principal, DJB, for being featured in the May issue of Instrumentation.
Apr 2014 - NEW HIGH TEMPERATURE SENSORS
Meggitt has just released a new range of Wilcoxon Research® HT (high temperature) vibration sensors. The new Model HT786A, HT787A and HT780A provide reliable, continuous output for condition monitoring applications where temperatures reach 150° C. The high performance sensors are field-tested with mean time before failure (MTBF) of 25 years. Wilcoxon sensors provide continuous cost savings through affordability and reliability.
Extreme temperatures can cause sensor degradation and corrosion, requiring frequent replacement or calibration. To offset the effect of high temperatures on internal electronics, the durable internal components are rated at 200° C for consistent bias output voltage levels over the entire temperature range.
Rugged housings and hermetic sealing protects against ground loops and RF interference, promoting long-term stability. Small casings enable easy installation on paper dryers, rollers, pumps, steam generators, and other machinery operating in high temperatures.
“The HT series offers lasting reliability when monitoring rotating machinery in high temperatures,” said Steve Wichtendahl, President of Wilcoxon Research® sensors. “Customers in the paper, oil and gas, plastics, steel, and power generation industries will appreciate the outstanding performance offered by our cost-effective sensors.”
The HT sensors are available in ultra-compact housings, top-exit, and side-exit for flexible cable connectivity. The catalogs can be found on this page.
Mar 2014 - IMPORTANCE OF VIBRATION DATA ACCURACY
In most plants it is a common practice to perform a commissioning acceptance test using vibration for new machines or on a machine that has been repaired / overhauled.
However, did you know that the measured data is influenced by the type of instrument used especially its technical specifications? For example, if you use a vibration meter that runs on a 24-bit card the information that is gathered is much more than if you were to use a meter that runs on a 16-bit card. In this sense, a 24-bit vibration meter is more accurate than a 16-bit vibration meter.
Similarly, if you want to have a more accurate picture of the level of vibration of your rotating machine you would be best served if you opt to use an instrument that gives you true values rather than derived values. For example, if you use a low level vibration meter that filters the data your machine may reflect a vibration level of say 6 mm/sec whereas if you use a 24-bit data collector with true values the value shown would be 2-3 times higher.
The question that arises here is whether your interest is served when the 16-bit vibration meter is showing you a very nice vibration level that may not be an accurate representation of the true vibration level of the machine. But it makes it easy for you to accept the new machine / repaired machine.
This is something for plant owners to think about especially if they are not so well versed in understanding the differences between various types of vibration measuring instruments and the impact it has on the resultant data, hence influencing the final decision to accept / reject a new machine or one that has just been repaired / overhauled.
If you are a plant owner and you would like to know more about this topic please contact us by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org under the header Importance of Vibration Data Accuracy.
Mar 2014 - NEW VIBRIO M FROM ADASH

Feb 2014 - WORLD'S SMALLEST IEPE ACCELEROMETER
We are now offering the world's smallest and lightest integral electronics piezo-electric (IEPE) stainless steel accelerometer. At just 5.7mm long, 3.5mm wide and just 2.3mm high the A/128/V weighs in at a miniscule 0.19grams making it virtually invisible to the item under test in terms of mass loading.
Utilising a mechanically pre-loaded shear plate sensing element due to its limited size, the A/128/V is relatively free from strain induced error and is available with a range of voltage output sensitivities including 1mV/g, 5mV/g and 10mV/g. Each accelerometer is supplied with a 0.5m or 1.0m integral softline cable with a microdot 10/32 UNF connector and a removal tool to ensure minimum damage due to shock impact when removing the adhesive mounted accelerometer.
Based on the A/28 charge output accelerometer that has for many years led the field in ultra-miniature accelerometer design and performance, the A/128/V has already proven itself in a number of customer applications where delicate equipment required measurement. With an important added benefit of being repairable if the integral cable should be damaged this ensures maximum return on investment.
The A/128/V is especially suitable for modal analysis of lightweight structures and vibration monitoring / analysis of PCB. Check out the datasheet here.
Dec 2013 - WATER COOLED ACCELEROMETERS FOR TEMPERATURES UP TO 800 CELSIUS
DJB Introduces the unique A/133 IEPE Voltage Triaxial accelerometer which permits usage on surfaces up to 800 Celsius. Ideally suited for Vibration Measurements on exhaust pipes or engine turbos. Mono versions can also be supplied on request.
To maintain a low internal temperature a water flow is critical, water flow is provided via two titanium pipes and it’s recommended that the flow rate of the cooling is maintained permanently when in use at high temperature, use at the extremes of the operating temperature range may require the supply of a chilled water. Failure to do so could lead to injury and damage to the unit. Typical water flow of 0.5l/min is all that is required and this can be supplied using a simple automotive windscreen washer pump.
Used extensively in the Automotive sector the A/133 and its charge alternative the A/33 have proven themselves at many of the worlds leading premier automotive manufacturers.
The A/133/V consists of 3 mono axial voltage accelerometers mounted into an anodised aluminium block. This method of construction allows the advantage of single axis repair if required, thus ensuring the maximum return on investment.
To know more please download the datasheet here.
