Computerised vibration analyser (PT 500.04)

Computerised vibration analyser (PT 500.04)

versatile, powerful software for vibration analysis



  • The computerised vibration analyser was developed specially to support analysis of machinery diagnostic experiments of the PT 500
  • The analyser can also be used in many other vibration experiments (such as TM 150).
  • The system comprises two acceleration sensors, a measuring amplifier with adjustable gain, a USBbox and the analysis software.
  • The analysis software offers the following features: two-channel oscilloscope for investigations in the time range; two-channel spectrum analyser for investigations in the frequency range; vibration measuring unit; envelope analysis for bump effects and roller bearing damage; travelling filter to record run-up curves; orbit display; and a balancing module for field balancing of rigid rotors in one and two planes.
  • The software permits various analytical methods to be applied to a vibration signal and compared in terms of their efficacy.
  • This enables the advantages and disadvantages of the various techniques to be effectively discovered.
  • The balancing process is presented step-by-step.
  • The software features an intuitive user interface, and is highly user-friendly.
  • An online help function provides guidance on the various functions. Measuring results can be printed out.
  • Cables, brackets and fixings are supplied.
