See the Dytran team hit the local trails to test our powerful and portable VibraCorder™ II (Model 4401A2)! The new VibraCorder™ II is an innovative and cost-effective solution for capturing critical transportation environment dynamics. It is so lightweight that it can be mounted on a bike frame, and is also rugged enough to thrive in harsh environments. This next generation vibration recorder is equipped with a removable SD-card that captures 6DOF, static and dynamic acceleration measurements and also includes roll, pitch and yaw. Check out the video to see how the VibraCorder™ II records data as the bike hits the trails!
Impact testing is a quick, low-cost way to obtain the experimental mode shapes of a structure. In this video, Vibrant Technology (www.vibetech.com) demonstrates how a roving impact test can be conducted using a Dytran impact hammer and tri-axial acceleromete to determine and animate the modes of a simple I-beam while using Vibrant Technology's ME'scopeVES.
The 4400B VibraCorder™ is a variable capacitance MEMS triaxial vibration recorder. This feature-rich portable recorder is offered in a variety of measurement ranges to fit your testing or monitoring needs. This video describes the unique synchronized triggering modes for the 4400B series which allows the user to deploy multiple VibraCorders™ in a test with synchronized data capture between units.
Ground loop interference has the potential to cause serious anomalies in your sensor data. This video describes the common causes of ground loop interference and the methods Dytran uses to isolate accelerometers for environments where ground loops may exist. Through a practical example in our sensor test lab we describe a process to artificially induce a ground loop and demonstrate how different sensor isolation schemes can be used to preserve your vibration data.
This video demonstrates the ease of integration of CAN-MD® with the Gantner Q.station industrial controller for machinery vibration monitoring. The Gantner Q.station is typically found in test cells, production lines, and a variety of industrial automated environments. The architecture of the Gantner Q.series requires a Q.station controller and additional modules for data acquisition, digital inputs/outputs, and additional communications.
However, like many other industrial process control devices, Q.station has two independent CAN modules. This makes it possible to switch the measurement chain architecture to utilize CAN-MD® technology. The integration video discusses how a typical Gantner user can integrate CAN-MD® into their monitoring application.
