Vibration Products

World Class vibration solutions that push the boundaries of value and innovation

We believe in using low noise sensors, that have at least a 10kHz flat frequency response and in using 24 bit data converters in all of our products. Our obsession with quality underpins our measurement systems' ability to detect faults early to enable that all important early maintenance intervention.

uBridge

uBridge 16842 Intelligent Online Device

The recently released Uptime ubridge16842 is a truly IIOT/ Industry 4.0 compatible Intelligent Condition Monitoring solution for all balance of plant and critical-spared assets.

  • 16 channels in 2 sets of (8 x 24bit) channels @ 51.2kHz sample rate simultaneously
  • Allocated 0.5GB RAM enables super long sample sets (> 40 minutes @ 51.2kHz sample rate)
  • Store data locally on the Single Board PC SD card (up to 128Gb)/ or using USB Drives
  • PLC Interface of 6 intelligent outputs to relay ‘expert derived condition state’
  • Truly IIOT and Industry 4.0 compatible
  • Samples 16 ch of dynamic input (ICP and AC) + 8 ch of DC Voltage + 4 ch of local 4-20mA + two speed references with no additions to the board set

Simultaneous channel sampling with phase/speed reference – two sets of 8 ch simultaneous 24-bit Data Acquisition with 51.2kHz and 5.12kHz sampling. The ability to phase reference 8 channels simultaneously to 1 tacho input.

Huge reduction in sampling timescales when measuring low frequency data elements, plus optimisation of the whole 24 bits across the 2Hz – 2kHz frequency range through the lower sample rate and associated 2kHz Anti-Aliasing Filters.

Local Intelligence and Storage/ Long time samples – the use of a single board Computer allows the allocation of up to 0.5GBytes of RAM to the sampling engine, hence the actual measurement limit (assuming a 32byte float) is around 100Million samples (for a single channel)

PLC Interface (with no additional hardware) – far too often vibration data are stored as time and frequency domain primitives with no derived intelligence and only basic symptoms. The locally driven uBridge intelligence will allow any system integrator to add their own intelligence
