Low Cost Remote Reset – Mechanical Vibration Switch Sensor

This new series of Smart Vibration Switches are now fully USB programmable and more cost-effective than ever.  With two-wire operation, universal power, and a single ¼-28 stud mount, they are simple to install and nearly drop-in replacements for mechanical vibration switches.  With Remote Reset, you no longer need to climb your cooling tower to reset a tripped switch.  Simply install the reset button at any convenient location in the 2-wire power loop for safe and easy access.  This unique, low cost vibration switch can replace most mechanical and many electronic vibration switches.   Mechanical vibration switches (or Earthquake Switches as they are commonly referred) can stick, corrode, be inconsistent in their protection, and are notorious for false trips, or worse yet, not tripping at all.  This can result in dangerous and costly catastrophic failures of cooling towers fans.  The Smart Vibration Switch has an embedded precision accelerometer, a solid state relay, and adjustable time delays providing much better accuracy, repeatability, and reliability than Earthquake Switches.  Additionally, it monitors vibration velocity, which is a much more repeatable and consistent measurement than acceleration.  It is housed in a robust stainless steel housing that is hermetically sealed for use in the harshest environments and is intrinsically safe (optional) for use in hazardous areas.  Operating temperature range of -40 to 185 °F and power required 24 to 240 V DC/AC 50/60 Hz.  Enclosure rating of IP38.  Possible applications would be 24/7 machinery protection, cooling tower fans and gearboxes, fin fans and motor pumps.  For samples or more information, please send an e-mail to EngHelpDesk@dee-inc.comDee can support all of your Sensor Requirements.
