Wilcoxon Research has improved the performance of several 4-20mA vibration sensors to operate in high-temperature environments up to 105C (221F).

Sensors with the new, higher temperature rating have a velocity or acceleration 4-20mA output based upon RMS or peak.

The 4-20mA vibration sensor models beginning PC420AR (acceleration RMS), PC420AP (acceleration peak), PC420VR (velocity RMS) and PC420VP (velocity peak) were redesigned to perform at operating temperatures up to 105C (221F).

Wilcoxon 4-20mA sensors monitor rotating equipment and output a real time 4-20mA signal proportional to the vibration level.

By trending this real-time data, plant personnel can schedule preventative-maintenance activities around planned downtime, saving time and money in costly unexpected repairs.

Integrating this signal into an existing PLC, DCS or Scada system simplifies real-time health monitoring because vibration, formerly considered too complex, can now be trended in easily understood units.

A wide variety of 4-20mA vibration sensors is available to suit individual monitoring needs.

Sensors are available with: top exit or side-exit connectors; intrinsically safe and explosion-proof ratings; monitoring of acceleration, velocity or displacement; output based upon root-mean-square, peak, true-peak, or true peak-to-peak; and dual monitoring of vibration and temperature.

Applications for Wilcoxon 4-20mA vibration sensors include compressors, motors, vibrating conveyors, seal-less pumps, chillers, gearboxes, pumps, exhaust fans, reciprocating compressors, blowers, cooling towers, mixers, gas/steam turbines and centrifuges.
