Product Description

The Vibration Meter Data Logger – Vibration Sentry RT128-16g is a new generation of smart data logger that can record and measure raw acceleration signals, acceleration statistics, inclination, vibration and impacts. It includes a 3-axis +-16g MEMS accelerometer, an accurate date/time clock and a non-volatile 128 Mb recording memory. Depending on the settings it can record vibration signals and/or RMS levels for months. Its very small size allows it to be attached to or embedded within the monitored equipment.

The Vibration Meter Data Logger – Vibration Sentry RT128-16g is an all digital design with an integrated oscilloscope function that can show the vibration signals in real time and an integrated spectral analyzer function that shows a 512-line spectrum in real time. It is self-calibrated using the earth’s gravity as a reference. An auto-rec feature allows the instrument to stay dormant for months, only recording when the acceleration signals are detected over an adjustable threshold.

The Vibration Sentry series of vibration meter data logger can be used to monitor shipments in transit and record adverse events such as shocks, high vibration levels and/or tilt. In order to do that properly, careful attention must be paid to the instrument’s configuration and installation.

The Vibration Meter Data Logger – Vibration Sentry RT includes the following models:
