B&K Vibro releases Vibrostore 100

By DJ Slater23 January 2021

Brüel & Kjær Vibro (B&K Vibro) launched Vibrostore 100, a palm-sized device that provides vibration level and bearing-wear monitoring for balance-of-plant machines. The lightweight device can be used one-handed and does not require training to take vibration measurements and assess a semi-critical machine’s overall vibration condition.

The Vibrostore 100 can be used one-handed and does not require training to take vibration measurements.

The instrument is equipped with a pre-set, cable-connected B&K Vibro acceleration sensor. Once the type and size of the machine based on ISO 10816 and its running speed are entered, a one-button push can perform the measurement. A traffic-light display immediately indicates the severity of the vibration based on the built-in ISO 10816 alarm limits (velocity in mm/s or in/s). The main screen also shows the rolling-element bearing condition in bearing damage units measurement (BDU) and total g (RMS acceleration). The display of the vibration level in frequency ranges indicates the most common machine faults, such as imbalance, misalignment or looseness.

Vibrostore 100 is available either as a stand-alone device or packaged with the B&K Vibro Report & Route Manager software.
