Vibration Analysis

What is vibration analysis?

Vibration analysis is a process for measuring the vibration levels and frequencies of machinery and then using that information to identify, predict, and prevent failures in rotating machinery. Anytime a piece of machinery is running, it is making vibrations.

An accelerometer attached to the machine generates a voltage signal that corresponds to the amount of vibration and the frequency of vibration the machine is producing, usually how many times per second or minute the vibration occurs. The output of this technology provides health information of the machine monitored and the severity of faults identified.
