Vibration can be expressed by three main ways: acceleration, velocity, and displacement. Ron Newman defines all three of these and discusses why they are important and when to use each one…

Any time a piece of machinery is running, it is vibrating.
Industrial vibration analysis refers to a process for measuring the vibration levels and frequencies of machinery and then using this information to assess the “health/condition” of the machine and its components.

Variable frequency drives (VFDs) have become a preferred method of process control for electric motor driven equipment ranging from vertical water pumps to centrifugal air fans. The following is a basic discussion of risks of using a VFD with direct driven centrifugal fans and methods of mitigating those risks to maintain equipment reliability.

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.
