PCB Piezotronics' model 682A09 Vibration Transmitter turns existing accelerometers into 24/7 vibration monitoring sensors
IMI Sensors announces the release of its model 682A09 ICP In-Line 4-20 mA Vibration Transmitter. The model 682A09 installs in line with any industrial accelerometer and converts the vibration signal to a 4-20 mA velocity output that can be trended with today’s PLC, DCS or SCADA control room systems. Its design installs right into the cable run, no DIN rails, cabinets or special power required. Now customers can take their existing accelerometers and turn them into 24/7 vibration monitoring devices for their most critical machinery.
The 682A09 is a stainless steel, hermetically sealed design capable of operating in the harshest environments with two-pin MIL connector input and three-pin MIL connector output. It accepts a 100 mV/g analog signal, converts to 4-20 mA output and operates off of loop-power supplied by the PLC, DCS or SCADA system. In addition, the 682A09 outputs the 100 mV/g analog signal via its three-pin output connector. The analog signal can be run to a central collection point, allowing the user to maintain the FFT capability of the original system.
