The Monitran model MTN/VM110, an entry-level vibration meter, is now available from instrumentation company Instrotech. The compact, lightweight and portable meter is designed to operate with a constant-current-type accelerometer, making vibration measurements simple and convenient.

Vibration analysis is an effective method of monitoring performance of rotating machinery such as fans, pumps and compressors throughout a plant. Regular monitoring allows for maintenance routines to be planned effectively with minimal disruption to prod-uction.

The product is a complete ready-to-use unit that can measure acceleration, velocity or displacement in three ranges. The system comprises a meter and a hand-held probe with attachable spike or mag-netic mount, all contained in a protective case.

Peak or root-mean-square values can be selected and a low filter is included for removing unwanted signals. An alternating current output allows the connection of additional filters or a signal analyser. A direct current output is provided to drive a chart recorder.

The British-manufactured Monitran VM110 takes three readings a second.
