Industrial Wireless Vibration And Temperature Sensor
Our long range wireless enterprise series sensors are an easy to use and reliable start to any data aggregation application. This video will demonstrate how they work, what they do, and how to use them.
Industrial Wireless Vibration And Temperature Sensor
Introducing NCD’s Long Range IoT Industrial wireless vibration and temperature sensor, boasting up to a 28 Mile range using a wireless mesh networking architecture. Incorporating a 16 Bit Vibration and temperature sensor, it transmits highly accurate data at user-defined intervals.
This sensor samples 3-axis of Vibration data for 500 msec and then calculates RMS, Maximum and Minimum Vibration. It then combines this data with temperature samples in a packet to be sent to one or multiple receivers. At power up, the sensor reads multiple samples and takes their average as an offset value, then subtracts the offset from every sample taken afterwards (Make sure to power off the device being monitored during sensor power up.) Once the sensor stabilizes and starts sending data, the device/machinery being monitored can be powered on. After it sends data for the 500msec sampling, it goes back to sleep for a user defined interval, thus minimizing power consumption. which makes it an ideal wireless vibration monitoring system for industrial equipment.
Powered by just 4 AA batteries and an operational lifetime of 500,000 wireless transmissions, a 10 years battery life can be expected depending on environmental conditions and the data transmission interval. Optionally, this sensor may be externally powered.
With an open communication protocol this sensor can be integrated with just about any control system or gateway. Data can be transmitted to a PC, a Raspberry Pi, to Microsoft Azure® IoT, or Arduino. Sensor parameters and wireless transmission settings can be changed using the open communication protocol providing maximum configurability depending on the intended application.
The long range, price, accuracy, battery life and security features of Wireless Vibration Sensor makes it an affordable choice which exceeds the requirements for most of the industrial as well as consumer market applications.
Receiving Data From Industrial Wireless Vibration and Temperature Sensor
This Long Range IoT Industrial wireless vibration and temperature sensor device sends data periodically, based on user-preset timing intervals. Data transmissions include battery level, signal strength, payload, firmware version, sensor type, and device serial number. Please see the Resources section to see detailed information on the data structure of this device. This Long Range IoT Wireless Vibration Temperature Sensor is a wireless transmitter needs a receiver. There are many options available for receiving data from NCD transmitters. We highly recommend using our USB Modem (available during purchase) so you can monitor this device and use our LabVIEW software for changing device settings. Using our long-range USB wireless modem, users can expect easy operation over a virtual COM port at 115.2K baud. Optionally, we offer a Wireless receiver that operates over Ethernet. Data from NCD sensors will appear over TCP/IP on port 2101. Simply open a TCP/IP socket, port 2101, to the IP address of the Ethernet modem and see your data stream in to your local area network.
General Vibration Guidelines
Here are some recommended Vibration standards, you can compare these readings with Long Range IoT Wireless Vibration Temperature Sensor to determine if your device is operating properly or if it needs any action
A. 0.01g or Less — Excellent condition, No action required
B. 0.35g or less — Good Condition, No action required unless the machine is noisy or running at abnormal temperature
C. 0.5g or less — Fair Condition, No action required unless the machine is noisy or running at abnormal temperature
D. 0.75g or More— Rough Condition, possible action required if machine is noisy and also check the bearing temperature
E. 1g or More — Very Rough Conditions, further analysis and see if its doing this continuously. Also check for noise and temperature
F. 1.5g or More — Danger Level, there is definitely a problem in the machine or installation. Also check the temperature Log
G. 2.5g or More — Stutdown the Machine and look for possible causes. Call a technician for immediate repair
For Heavy Machinery these readings could be 1.5 times to 2 times more.

Industrial Wireless vs Long Range IoT
We realize that the Industrial Wireless line and the Long Range IoT line seem very similar and in fact are. The Industrial Wireless line has a few improvements over its counterpart in the Long Range Wireless line in form and fit, but maintain the same function.
|Feature||Industrial Wireless||Long Range IoT|
