Triaxial Accelerometer Considerations
Triaxial accelerometers are a useful combination of three sensing pellets, each taken from a single-axis accelerometer and oriented in a new package to cover all three Euclidean axes, that can quickly evaluate a machine’s condition. Obtaining data from just a single measurement axis can certainly clue you into developing machine faults and their severity, but monitoring all three axes, especially at both ends of the machine, gives the clearest picture of overall machine health.

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.

Why MEMS Accelerometers Are Becoming the Designer’s Best Choice for CbM Applications
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.
