4-20 mA Rotating Machinery Fault Detector



August 13, 2004, Depew, NY – The IMI Division of PCB Piezotronics introduces Model 682A05, dual 4-20 mA output, DIN rail mount machinery fault detector (Patent Pending), that is designed to capture the earliest signs of bearing deterioration with a minimum of personnel training. Through a 1 KHz/5 KHz selectable high-pass filter, the first output measures “peak” g levels over a specified time interval, which is critical in the detection of early bearing faults. The second output measures “overall” vibration levels in user-selectable units, from 10 Hz to 1 KHz. This second output is ideal for detecting low frequency faults such as out-of-balance and misalignment.


Able to interface with existing plant architecture (PLC, SCADA, DCS), this unit will provide 24/7 monitoring of rotating equipment and is well suited for detecting lubrication starvation, inner and outer race faults, impacting, and contamination.
