Monitran has introduced six ranges of general-purpose sensors, available as top- or side-entry versions and with integral cables or connectors.

Submersible and intrinsically safe versions are also available.

Devices in the 2200 range are suitable for vibration analysis.

As standard they operate between +/-80g, have a rapid response to shock loading and can withstand forces in excess of 10,000g.

They have isolated AC outputs with sensitivities of 100mV/g – although alternative sensitivities are available on request.

They are also said to have good bias voltage stability, with typical drift no more than 3mV/C with a bias voltage of 11.6V.

A second new range, the 2300 series, comprises dual-output devices.

Here, sensors replicate those in the 2200 range in terms of the AC output for vibration analysis, but also have an output proportional to temperature (at 10mV/C – a de-facto sensitivity for many data loggers).

For monitoring velocity, Monitran’s third new range, the 2285 series, features devices with DC outputs (4-20mA) proportional to RMS velocity, though outputs proportional to peak velocity are available on request.

These are suitable for providing machine/plant protection, by allowing monitored velocity (speed of vibration) levels to be included within a condition-based predictive-maintenance strategy.

The maximum sensitivity is typically 0 to 100mm/s; customers can select sensitivities most suited to their intended applications.

The incorporation of full internal screening within the 2285 range of sensors eliminates potential earth-loop problems and simplifies installation.

The fourth new range of sensors from Monitran is the 2287 series, which is as per the 2285 series but with the DC output proportional to acceleration (RMS as standard but with peak available upon request) as opposed to velocity.

The fifth and sixth ranges are the 2385 and 2387.

These add secondary outputs for temperature (again output at 10mV/C) to the 2285 and 2287 ranges, respectively.

The general-purpose sensors are suitable for the majority of industrial applications.

For more bespoke applications, Monitran provides a range of special-purpose sensors; including those for modal analysis, tri-axial accelerometers and devices with charge outputs.

Datasheets for each range of devices are available on request.
