The ultra-sensitive accelerometers are mounted in the most vital locations of the turbine’s drive train: the main bearing(s), the gearbox and the generator – providing vibration signals analyzed in the M-System.
Accelerometers in our product line have been designed to last the lifetime of the turbine. The accelerometers are piezoelectric sensors with a constant current interface. Moreover, the accelerometers are service-friendly, have fast shock recovery and offers a constant line drive, which means that they are noise-immune and therefore are well-suited for harsh environments.
Each turbine is built differently and therefore, it is important to have the right machine model in place to ensure that your target measurements are recorded. This can be achieved through the use of TCM® Ocular Modeler, which uses your kinematic data to guide you in the placement of your accelerometers.
