Meggitt's Wilcoxon Research HT vibration sensors are designed for condition monitoring applications
Meggitt has released its Wilcoxon Research HT (high temperature) series of vibration sensors that provide reliable, continuous output for condition monitoring applications where temperatures reach 150° C. The high performance sensors are field-tested with mean time before failure (MTBF) of 25 years. The units are 35% smaller in size and 35% less expensive than previous models, according to the company.
To offset the effect of high temperatures on internal electronics, internal components are rated at 200° C for consistent bias output voltage levels over the entire temperature range.
Rugged housings and hermetic sealing protects against ground loops and RF interference, promoting long-term stability. Small casings enable easy installation on paper dryers, rollers, pumps, steam generators, and other machinery operating in high temperatures.
The HT sensors are available in ultra-compact housings, top-exit, and side-exit for flexible cable connectivity.
