A vibration sensor produces an AC voltage dependent on the vibration signal being measured. As such, it’s subject to all the limits of AC signals. Long cable runs are likely to introduce enough capacitance into the sensor circuit to cause distortion, which makes being able to calculate cable length limits very important..

Water is one of the most destructive contaminants faced by industrial maintenance departments. Some systems may be more tolerant to water, while others can be more sensitive. Some manufacturers have set limits as low as 30 ppm. Best practice would tend to indicate that it is beneficial to keep water contamination at the lowest level possible..
