Monitran's new hand-held meter, the MTN/VM220, is ideal for detecting the early signs of component wear or failure in pumps, motors, gearboxes and other mechanical assemblies.
Southern Manufacturing & Electronics, Farnborough, United Kingdom – Monitran, a leader in the development and manufacture of transducers for the measurement of vibration, proximity and displacement, has launched the MTN/VM220; a compact, handheld meter for measuring vibration and temperature levels.
The MTN/VM220 conforms to ISO10816-3 and is ideal for detecting the early signs of component wear or failure in machinery, motors, gearboxes, pumps and other mechanical assemblies. The meter includes a crisp, colour LCD display and has the ability to store up to 100 readings (temperature and acceleration, velocity or displacement) against a real-time clock.
Measuring just 122 x 78 x 28mm, the MTN/VM220 has an easy-to-grip, tough rubberised case and a long-life rechargeable battery. It is supplied with a probe into which is integrated a dual-output, general purpose sensor, the MTN/2200T, which has default sensitivities of 100mV/g and 10mV/oC. Also included are a magnetic base and spike (for use with the probe), a coiled cable (0.5m nominal to 2m extended) with a 4-pin Lumberg connector at each end, and a universal (battery) charger; all in a foam-lined and durable carry case.
Andy Anthony, Monitran's Managing Director, comments: "We're extremely pleased with the look, feel and performance of our new vibration meter. Also, having hinted late last year that the meter was to be launched at Southern Manufacturing & Electronics, we've already received enquiries and advance orders from customers in the UK and abroad."
The MTN/VM220 is available immediately.
