Vibration monitoring beats downtime

Vibration monitoring has become essential for plant and equipment predictive maintenance in mining and quarrying.

Not only is it a valuable tool for preventing unscheduled downtime, but it can also extend machine operating life beyond recommended maintenance intervals.

The ifm battery-operated vibration sensor, in combination with the ifm gateway, sends simple real-time monitoring and alerts to your smart device, PC or industrial computer.

Powered from an internal battery with a life of at least four years, wireless vibration sensors in ifm’s vibrating-wire (VW) range are fast and easy to install, even in difficult-to-access locations.

There are two versions of the VW sensor available: VWV001 and VWV002. Both have an IP68 ingress protection rating and an operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C, allowing them to be used in the most demanding industrial applications.
