Complex machine systems use acceleration sensors for precise real-time monitoring of machine vibration. Acceleration sensors detect machine component wear and any critical operating states. This allows for corrective action to avoid potential damage to large-scale systems such as wind turbines.
The F99 series acceleration sensor monitors strong vibrations or accelerations in a wind turbine due to wind loads on the equipment. The sensor provides a sturdy environmentally protected housing, and uses a non-contact measuring principle for reliable feedback to help avoid critical situations.
Non-contact measuring of accelerations in the range -2….+2 g
Two independent, orthogonal axes are detected separately
Sturdy housing suitable for outdoor use
Extended temperature range from –40 °C to +85 °C
e1 type approval for use on public roads
