What type of machine are you monitoring?
Has there been a failure on this machine or a similar machine recently?
If Yes, has the root cause failure mode been determined?
If Yes, please describe failure mode
(For example: failure due to fluting, shaft rub, cracked race, etc.)
Is the machine to be monitored located in a hazardous or intrinsically safe area?
If Yes, what is the rating of that area?
(NOTE: Hazardous Area and Intrinsically Safe LP sensors
are NOT available in side exit format.)
Is there 5 inches (13 cm) or more of clearance for mounting the sensor on the bearing housing?
If Yes, do you require a top exit or side exit sensor?
Do you have a preferred sensor output?
4-20 mA proportional to:
"Rate of increase in speed, measured in g's"
"Rate of change in position, measured in IPS"
If this utility is choosing the output, what portion of the vibration signature is most important?
Is a secondary dynamic output required?
If Yes, what is the secondary output?
What type of condition are you monitoring?
(NOTE: Contact CTC for recommendations for extremely high frequency measurement requirements.)
Is a temperature output required?
(NOTE: Temperature output not available in 4-20 mA current output.
It is only available as DC voltage output.)
What is the machine’s overall (unfiltered) vibration value?
(Total amount of vibration between your required frequency bands, based on your machine history or industry standards)
Are transient vibrations important or not important? Transient vibrations are short term or unexpected
events that could deviate from normal operating values.
Will the sensor be submerged or is integral cable required?
If Yes, what will the sensor be submerged in?
What is the distance from the sensor to the planned termination point?
Required mounting hole to be accommodated:
