Vibrations can cause a lot of damage when they exceed a certain value. To prevent this damage, it’s important to use vibration monitoring to analyse the situation. Measuring DIN4150-2 is for example a very hard task for most people. When you want to measure this kind of vibrations, you need to know what kind of equipment you need. I will tell you more about that equipment.

Vibration monitor

The most important part is the vibration monitor. With this equipment, you will be able to measure all the vibrations in a certain location. When you choose a vibration monitor, you will need to look at the following aspects:

  • The frequency. The different kind of vibration monitor can measure a different kind of vibrations. Be sure to choose the right one to prevent stupid mistakes.
  • A filter. A vibration monitor needs a good filter to filter out al the vibrations that are on a different frequency. 
  • The battery. An important part is a battery. Vibration monitoring can take a long time and because of this, it is important to have a vibration monitor with a good battery. Especially for situations where you can not charge your monitor, because there is no energy station nearby. Nowadays er are lucky that there are big batteries that can last up to two or three weeks without charging them.

Analysing equipment

When you have measured all the vibrations, you will need the right vibration analysis equipment to analyse the information you have got. By doing these analyses, you can find certain insights on possible errors in the construction project. This software needs to be able to analyse, filter and interpret the data you got. Nowadays there is multiple software that can help you with this task.
