Sensors for speed measurements
Choosing the right speed sensor for turbomachinery is of crucial importance for an accurate and reliable measurement. After all, the signal of the sensor is the input for an overspeed protection system. A faulty sensor leads to an unreliable input signal, which has a negative influence on the accuracy and reliability of the protection system.

Making It In A High Frequency World Striving for High-Frequency Industrial Accelerometers
As predictive maintenance teams in industrial facilities strive for a more complete picture of their equipment’s health, high frequency vibration measurements have become a crucial addition to identify faults such as motor and pump bearing defects and gear tooth inconsistencies in high-speed gearboxes. As a result, there is an upsurge in demand for vibration sensors with a high frequency response.

Challenges of Monitoring Slow Speed Components on Critical Assets
In the field of vibration analysis, it is often argued that slow rotating components are the most challenging to monitor. When they are monitored, poor decisions and delayed detection are the result. However, just as with easily detectable high speed component faults, slow rotating components can have equal, if not better, success in early detection and prognosis. With adequate sampling techniques, and an easy to navigate software, you’ll increase your lead time detection and eliminate catastrophic failures. Presented by one of ONYX InSight's mechanical engineers, who monitors thousands of slow rotating and critical components in their portfolio - Jon Sharf will share his experience in this field.
