Wilcoxon Research, a supplier of quality vibration sensors and sensor networks, has added another low-cost sensor to its family of general purpose accelerometers, the 788A, with a sensitivity of 100 mV/g and a tight +10 per cent tolerance.

Tom Smith, director of sales and marketing said that, the 788A meets their specifications at an economical price, and exemplifies Wilcoxons commitment to Total Lower Cost of Ownership (TLC).

The 788A is a single axis sensor with an acceleration range of +50 g (at full scale). High frequency response measurements up to 10 kHz identify faults and improper machine operation, ensuring that maintenance professionals are aware of these potentially damaging conditions. Typical noise is 4 micro g at 100 Hz. The 788A operates normally at temperatures between -50° and 120° C. Additional features include exceptional shielding, ground isolation, and hermetic sealing against environmental contamination.

Wilcoxon's 788A is priced at only Rs.536.75 ($95) and is ideal for condition based monitoring and predictive maintenance programmes. This general purpose accelerometer is suited to vibration monitoring of fans, motors, pumps, blowers, compressors, chillers, gearboxes, and mixers, as well as many other industrial applications, to significantly reduce failure rates in the field.
