The VSE series of vibration sensors provide measurement of overall vibration levels being generated by all types of machinery in Hazardous Areas.
They are available with either a IEPE/ICP voltage output for direct measurement and analysis of rotating machinery, or a loop powered 4-20mA output which can be directly connected to PLC, DCS and other industrial contollers for conitinuous condition monitoring.
The IEPE/ICP Voltage type are available with sensitivity of between 10mV/g (high frequency) to 500mv/g (low frequency).
The 4-20mA loop powered type are configured with a full scale acceleration output (RMS or Peak) of between 5g to 50g.
The housing is manufactured from 316L stainless steel, and is available either hardwired or with one of two wireable options (W or WL) which utilises our pioneering integrated junction box/connection head design. Euroswitch wireable vibration sensors alleviate add on components (glands,adaptors etc) and allow installation where space is at a premium.
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.
The Vibration Sensor VSE Series is covered by the following hazardous area certifications.
|Explosion Proof:||IECEx & ATEX Ex d/db/tb (Zone 1 & Zone 21) ¦ UL/CSA (Class I & II, Div1 & Div2)|
|Intrinsically Safe:||IECEx & ATEX Ex ia (Zone 0 & Zone 20) ¦ UL/CSA IS (Zone 0)|
|Other Regional Approvals Include:||EAC/TRCU, INMETRO, KCs, CCOE/PESO, ECAS ex, NEPSI/CQST|
