There are many faults that cause a rotating component to breakdown and fail, some of the most common being misalignment, unbalance and soft foot. One of the most common faults that cause a component to breakdown are bearing defects.
Why would a company carry out condition monitoring programs?

A small number of semiconductor manufacturers have overcome the noise, bandwidth and g-Range shortcomings commonly associated with MEMS sensors used in Condition-based Monitoring (CbM) by producing several medium and high-performance MEMS vibration sensors with the latter being comparable to piezo accelerometers.

Overall vibration catches bearing damage very late, when there may be 0.1% of the bearing lifetime left. Traditional vibration, let’s say systems with poor signal-to-noise ratio...
