Next-generation condition monitoring field device


Brüel & Kjær Vibro GmbH has introduced a next-generation VCM-3 condition monitoring platform designed to increase the uptime and reduce the overall lifecycle costs of pumps, fans, motors, gearboxes and many other types of machine, while increasing reliability. The field-proven VCM-3 is a 12-channel data acquisition hub for monitoring auxiliary machines, balance-of-plant (BOP) non-critical machines and other assets in industries where cost-effective condition monitoring is required without machine protection. It features enhanced condition monitoring measurement techniques, easy system integration, built-in cybersecurity and simple installation. The platform has been designed for scalability, so users can get started quickly with the basic model.
