Vibration Sensor: Acceleration 4-20mA Wireable Connection Head - Type W
Vibration Sensor/Transmitter: Acceleration 4-20mA Output
The VS series of vibration sensors provide measurement of overall vibration levels being generated by all types of rotating machinery in Hazardous Areas, and can be directly connected to PLC, DCS and other industrial controllers.
The VS-A1-W type are loop powered, 4-20mA output vibration sensors configured with a full scale acceleration output (RMS or Peak) of between 5g to 50g. This type has a 316 Stainless Steel Wireable Connection Head with an entry for an M20 or 1/2” NPT conduit gland through the lid. This enables the field wiring connection to be made directly at the back of the sensor in the hazardous area, thereby negating the requirement for a separate junction box, bracketry and additional glands. Secure cable connection is provisioned for with spring type anti vibration terminals for conductors upto 2.5mm².
Benefiting from state-of-the-art annular shear design, our VS series sensors provide better frequency response, improved base strain, lower noise, and an insensitivity to cable motion compared to the market competition.
It is available certified for Hazardous Area use including ATEX / IECEx / UL / CSA / TRCU & INMETRO.
