VCM-3 condition monitoring platform

Brüel & Kjær Vibro, one of the leading worldwide independent suppliers of condition monitoring solutions for rotating machinery, has launched its next-generation VCM-3 condition monitoring platform for a wide range of industries.

The VCM-3 is designed to increase the uptime and reduce overall life-cycle costs of pumps, fans, motors, gearboxes and many other types of machines, while increasing reliability.

The field-proven VCM-3 is a 12-channel data acquisition hub targeted at full featured monitoring of auxiliary machines, balance-of-plant (BOP) non-critical machines and other assets in industries where cost-effective condition monitoring is required without machine protection. It features enhanced condition monitoring measurement techniques, easy system integration, built-in cyber security and simple IT solution installation.Albert Vontz, head of business unit industrial at Brüel & Kjær Vibro, said, "The VCM-3 is designed to end any frustration monitoring your BOP and smaller, less critical machines. It is a more reliable and secure alternative to difficult walk-around monitoring rounds, and cost-effectively fills the gap between portables and rack-based systems. The VCM-3 has a powerful data acquisition and processing unit that provides a scalable platform for expansion, customization and development of future new monitoring methods."

Users with all levels of in-house monitoring expertise can operate the platform's diagnostic tools. Key benefits of the platform include:

  • Simultaneous input channels with high sampling frequency
  • Very easy to install
  • Robust cyber security
  • Internal (device) OPC UA server and storage

A worldwide network of sales and service offices and partners supports the VCM-3.
