Vibration-measurement meter introduced by QBC for testing in 10-to-1000-Hz range

NEW HYDE PARK, N.Y., 12 April 2013. Quality Bearings & Components (QBC) in New Hyde Park, N.Y., is introducing the model TB-C780201 BETEX professional VibChecker vibration monitor meter designed for quick and accurate vibration surveys.

The TB-C780201 test & measurement tool provides portable and user-friendly vibration measurement in the 10-to-1000 Hz frequency range. Measurement results are immediately and automatically evaluated against ISO standards, company officials say.

Green, yellow, and red LEDs indicate vibration severity and a real time FFT spectrum is produced for pattern recognition. Results can be stored for documentation and follow-up.

With its built-in probe, easy button operation and clear symbols, VibChecker is an all-set-to-go instrument: just point the probe and measure to locate vibration-related problems, company officials say.

VibChecker helps trend vibration levels on fans, motors, pumps, compressors, and other types of rotating process machinery as a cost-effective predictive maintenance tool.

In most cases, vibration measurement can detect a problem long before damage to the machine is done, company officials say. The repair of equipment failing while in service is many times more costly than planned repairs made possible through vibration monitoring.
