Gearbox defects can be identified with a quite high accuracy using vibration analysis. This is because the fact the most common defect frequencies are the fundamental Gear Mesh Frequency (GMF) and its harmonics (such 2x GMF, 3x GMF) which can easily detected.

Businesses invest millions of dollars in what they believe will be a fail-safe maintenance program for their electric motors. Regular tests are scheduled for each motor; engineers dutifully record the data when required and then move on to the next motor.

With process control systems, it’s simple (and smart) to incorporate vibration data into an existing monitoring program. Either loop-powered 4-20 mA sensors, which output a direct 4-20 mA signal, or IEPE sensors, which output dynamic data that can be converted into an acceptable process signal, can be used..
