Useful Functions

Simultaneous Measurement

Simultaneous Measurement
Support to Quick and Easy Measurements

There are several parameters to express about vibration.
For conventional vibrometers, repetitive measurements at each point switching parameters is necessary.
However,for CardVibro Air2 equipped with a simultaneous measurement function, measurements of Displacement, Velocity, Acceleration and furthermore Envelope for bearing condition diagnosis is possible by just pressing a start key at the same time.
It will help you to save workload and missing crucial measurements.

Evaluation Function

Evaluation Function
Evaluation at the site

You may want to make evaluation of condition of the rotational machineries as blowers or motors at the site by just measuring their vibrations. With CardVibro Air 2, such evaluation is possible based on the standard for the Vibration Severity ISO-10816 (JIS-B-0906). This function helps anybody make easy and quick judgement with the same results.

Data Saving

Data Saving
Important Basic Function

All data acquired can be saved if the Android tablet PC is applicable to the storage card. Data can be transferred to PC for more efficient handling by using data handling software.

FFT Analysis

FFT Analysis
For Investigation of Cause of Vibration If measurements of vibrations are unacceptably large, cause investigation by FFT is recommended. CardVibro Air 2 is possible to perform Frequency Analysis only by the minimum condition setting. Try fine analysis with 12800 lines on such a small body! It will help you to root out the harmful vibration and the slippage of bearings.

Waveform Observation

Waveform Observation
Failure mode detection at first grance State change of vibration such as scratch on bearing surface is recognizable by monitoring waveforms.
Maximum 1 minute of waveform can be recorded.

Monitoring Function

Monitoring Function
Real-time MonitoringAlmost real-time monitoring of waveform data and FFT is possible.

Route Setting Function

Route Setting Function
The next point to be measured will be displayed by pre-setting.
The data can be managed with the machine name, measuring place or the register number.
* Data Management Software (option) is needed.
