1. Overview

AN1931 vibration sensor is an inertia sensor, which converts vibration signals into electric signals based on magneto-electric induction principles. It is mainly composed of magnetic circuit system, inertia mass and spring damper. A magnet is rigidly fixed in the sensor bearing; the inertia mass (coil block) is suspended on the bearing by a spring element. When vibration is produced, the coil and magnet move relatively within the operating frequency range of the sensor; the magnetic line of force is cut, and induced voltage is generated within the coil; voltage value is in direct proportion to vibration velocity or displacement value.

2. Functions

The object of measurement includes vertical and horizontal (X/Y/Z) vibration (bearing vibration) of bearing pedestal or rack of a rotary machine;

The output signals are in direct proportion to vibration velocity or displacement; the sensor applies to the field of ultralow frequency vibration measurement.

3. Features

Embedded with high-performance elements, and stable for long-term use of output signals, and high in immunity from environmental disturbance;


4. Application

Mainly applies to vibration measurement of water turbine sets, pump stations, low speed operating machines (mills), and engineering construction (dams and bridges).
