LUDECALUDECA’s VIBCONNECT RF is a highly reliable, wireless condition monitoring system for machine components, which LUDECA says is the first of its kind. The sensor unit monitors machine vibration, bearing condition and temperature, and transmits the relevant data to the bridge where it is evaluated. With its diagnostic capabilities, the system monitors the condition of roller bearings and other rotating components and detects damage caused by cavitation. The system allows end-users to monitor plant equipment that extends over a large area without the need for installing costly cabling. The VIBCONNECT bridge acts as the central receiver. It processes the data from the sensor units and transmits it through the operator”s network for visualization and archiving. For the evaluation of received data, the system includes a range of comprehensive analytical functions that enable the operator to assess the machine vibration, temperature and bearing condition. –
