VIBRATION METER - vibration ANALYZER
Our vibration meter instruments and vibration analyzers deliver a highly flexible platform, that can be customized to your specific measurement task, and which can be expanded with instrument-hosted software modules for vibration applications, and applications for collecting, recording, and analyzing vibration measurement data. B&K vibration meters are supplied without a microphone,
B&K Type 2250-W - Single channel Vibration meter / analyzer
B&K Type 2250 can be easily extended with Brüel & Kjær's range of quality range of microphones and accelerometers. From environmental vibration testing, or production line measurement and analysis, B&K Type 2250 sound level meter has you covered.
B&K Type 2270-W - Dual-Channel Vibration Meter / Analyzer
B&K Type 2270-W is our flagship vibration meter and vibration analyzer. Designed with two channels, B&K Type 2270 offers all the functionality of B&K Type 2250, with the addition of being capable of simultaneous measurements - with tight phase matching between the two channels,
WHAT IS A VIBRATION METER
A vibration meter is a measurement instrument – often handheld – that is used in product development and manufacturing for vibration assessment, diagnostics, and quality control.
Vibration meters can be configured with a range of analysis options, from simple broadband measurements to an octave or FFT-based frequency analysis and even time-domain integration to velocity and displacement. Single, wide frequency band vibration measurements are a useful quick-look vibration indicator, which can be used for example when evaluating the general condition of a machine or the effectiveness of vibration isolation measures.
WHAT IS A VIBRATION METER USED FOR
A Vibration meter is traditionally used in manufacturing across a variety of industries.
Acceleration, velocity, and displacement are parameters traditionally used to assess a machine's health when initially installed or after maintenance, repair, or overhaul (MRO). Expanding on this, the Crest Factor is used to detect and diagnose defects in roller element bearings.
To know more about how a vibration meter is used, we've provided some actionable articles, explaining the many applications of a vibration meter.
VIBRATION METER APPLICATIONS:
- Crest factor measurements
- Quality testing and inspection
- Product development
- Machinery analysis and troubleshooting
