The VibeCloud system allows our clients to utilize the predictive tools that our own field engineers have used for over 25 years, providing world-class vibration analysis and condition monitoring for household names such as Mars Chocolate, GE Appliances, Toyota, and hundreds of other facilities around the world. The VibeCloud system is made up of several different products that all come together to monitor your machinery and prevent catastrophic breakdowns.
VibeCloud™ Wireless Online Vibration & Temperature Sensor
The VibeCloud Wireless Online Vibration Sensor has an 8hz to 10khz frequency range that allows vibration analysts to detect a wide range of developing equipment faults (including high frequency indicated faults such as bearing wear and gear mesh issues). With the VibeCloud Vibration Sensor, facilities can predict and identify problems long before catastrophic failures. This saves these businesses a tremendous amount of money in repairs and lost production while simultaneously increasing facility safety. The sensor has three axes of vibration readings to enable the analysts to identify all potential failure modes detectable through vibration analysis. The sensor also monitors temperature—a critical data point used with vibration monitoring to confirm potential failure modes.
VibeCloud™ System Node
The Semeq VibeCloud System Node allows multiple VibeCloud Vibration Sensors in each area to relay their vibration data in a timely manner to the network. At least one VibeCloud System Node is required per VibeCloud installation, and in general (depending on physical distance and obstacles between sensors and nodes), 10-20 sensors can communicate with a single system node in a VibeCloud IIOT Implementation. The node transfers the sensor data to the internet using ethernet, Wi-Fi, or built-in, SIM-card-based cellular data.
Unit pricing on system gateway nodes ranges from $599-$699 per unit for Wi-Fi system nodes and $688-$899 per unit for cellular system nodes, depending on the quantity of units purchased. Contact us today for a custom quote.
Wi-Fi repeaters are common, commercially available devices that allow the range of VibeCloud Gateways to be greatly extended, usually in increments of 500-1000 feet. Sometimes Wi-Fi repeaters are needed when the VibeCloud System Nodes are placed more than 500-1000 feet apart.
Cellular-Based Wi-Fi Router
The Cellular-Based Wi-Fi Router (when using Wi-Fi Gateways) is an optional cellular-data network-based internet router that allows the VibeCloud system to send the collected vibration sensor data to the cloud. In many cases, local facility Wi-Fi or cabled networks have security restrictions, so the VibeCloud system is far less able to use the network. To avoid these issues, the Cellular-Based Wi-Fi Router option is ideal as it completely bypasses the local facility Wi-Fi or cable network, thus reducing any corporate or facility data security concerns. This also ensures that the VibeCloud system data is not affected by any facility-level internet outages, improving the stability and reliability of the vibration monitoring of the facility’s critical equipment.
Sensor Magnetic Base
For installations that need to be quickly deployed across a facility, we recommend a magnetic base to affix the sensors to the equipment. The 25 lb. magnet solidly attaches the sensor to the equipment for the most accurate vibration reading.
