Vibration Monitoring

Vibration Monitoring
VIBRA-series

Profound launches the new VIBRA-series, the smartest vibration monitors in the world

Combine a sensitive 3D sensor with a compact watertight unit, include high-performance processing, and the result will be unmatched performance in monitoring vibrations.

With a VIBRA model from the Profound VIBRA-series you continuously and accurately measure vibrations caused by, for example, traffic, piling or demolition work and blasting. By measuring vibrations, you can objectively and in accordance with the applicable guidelines, assess the risk of damage to buildings and sensitive equipment. With a VIBRA+ model you can also measure and assess nuisance for people. Vibrations are instantly measured, saved and displayed.

The new IP65 watertight robust housing system is lightweight and easy portable. Systems can be placed easily and quickly at multiple measuring points. The system runs on an internal battery and can measure unmanned and uninterrupted for a number of weeks. All VIBRA models are equipped with an integrated 4G modem, including fall back options to other networks. Online connection and data visualisation has never been so convenient.

The Profound VIBRA–series comprises the VIBRA and the VIBRA+. Each model meets the system specifications from DIN 45669-1. Depending on the chosen model, the system meets national and international standards, such as DIN 4150-2 and -3, BS 5228-2, BS 7385-2, SBR, SS 460 48 66/61, AS 2187.2.

Over 25 years Profound has been the leading supplier of vibration measurement equipment. With a model from the Profound VIBRA-series system you have a unique and reliable instrument to measure vibration continuously and accurately.

Operation

Setting up the system on site is easy: attach the 3-dimensional sensor to the structure to be monitored, switch on the system and start measuring. During measuring the VIBRA displays the current vibration values of the 3 directions including frequency, the maxima, besides date, time, remaining battery capacity, available memory. You can also immediately check the overall maximum values.

An alarm level can be set for velocity on the VIBRA. Alarms can be sent via SMS. An external wireless alarm beacon can be used to warn on-site. The VIBRA+ model has an additional alarm option for acceleration, displacement or a frequency-dependent velocity alarm and can send alerts via SMS or internet/e-mail.  The VIBRA+ model also features a displacement and a smart frequency-dependent velocity alarm and can send alerts via SMS or e-mail.

Data handling

Real-time monitoring and analysis
Every VIBRA model can be set up for wireless automatic data transfer for real-time online monitoring via the integrated 4G modem including multiple fallback options. With a VIBRA+ data can also be continuously uploaded to any FTP server or send to your own pc via mail.

Profound offers a turnkey online monitoring service via www.vibramonitoring.com

For a direct read-out a VIBRA model can be connected to your laptop/pc via USB for data retrieval, even while measuring. With the PC software supplied together with the system, data are directly presented in graphs for detailed reporting. You also simply export data to a csv-file. With the PC Remote Control software it is possible to log in remotely to your VIBRA system.

Application

With a system from the Profound VIBRA-series, vibrations that are caused by traffic, pile driving, demolition work or blasting can be monitored continually and accurately. By recording the vibrations you can assess the risk of damage to buildings and sensitive equipment as well as the nuisance to people in an objective manner in accordance with the applicable guidelines

Academy

You or your colleagues have been working for some time with a vibration monitoring system of the VIBRA-series, but regulations and guidelines are adapted and the materials are developing continuously. Especially for users of the VIBRA or VIBRA+ system we have developed the refresher course “Vibration Monitoring & Analysis in accordance with vibration monitoring codes”.
