Commtest solutions include portable vibration analyzers, data collectors, and dedicated balancers, as well as permanent machinery surveillance systems - All compatible with the sophisticated, user-friendly Ascent software.

     The Spotcheck device is a microprocessor-controlled, handheld machinery condition monitoring tool that measures mechanical
vibrations using an attached accelerometer sensor and an integrated infrared thermal sensor.

Spotcheck provides a cost-effective introduction to vibration-based condition monitoring. It has a simple four-button user interface, a compact yet rugged IP64-certified case, and a long-life (>48 hour) rechargeable battery pack. Its automated ISO alarm features require no specialist user training or external software.

By comparing vibration velocity levels against international ISO standards, the Spotcheck device can automatically display simple, easy to understand machinery health alarms that quickly indicate the fitness of machinery to operate.

When measuring bearing vibrations, the device can be configured to display alarms that may indicate existing or approaching bearing failures or seizures. These alarms are generated by analyzing velocity or acceleration measurements at the higher frequencies typically associated with bearing defects (above 1 kHz).

In addition to its vibration measurement capabilities, the Spotcheck device includes an integrated non-contact IR thermal sensor and laser pointer. This sensor enables temperature measurements to be taken safely and accurately from distances of up to 2 meters (6.5 feet) away, locating potential mechanical problems before expensive failures occur.

The Spotcheck device's measurement and alarm capabilities, together with temperature readings, enable you to quickly evaluate the condition of machinery and determine whether further diagnostic investigation is required.
