The general-purpose vibration meter VM-82A or the pocketable vibration meter VM-63A can be used for purposes such as measuring vibrations of machinery for maintenance management, inspection, acceptance inspection, or prior to installation. Startup inspection after regular servicing, status monitoring, and simple diagnosis are other applications where machinery measurement in the field is required. Depending on the machinery parameters such as type, usage purpose, rotation speed, etc., the measurement targets are acceleration, velocity, and/or displacement values.
The VM-82A uses an accelerometer connected to the vibration meter via a curled cable. For vibration measurement, the accelerometer can be fastened to the measurement object using a magnet attachment, screw mounting, etc.
The VM-63A employs an accelerometer integrated into the body of the unit. It can therefore be used by simply pressing it against the measurement target.
