IMI Sensors, a division of PCB Piezotronics, has introduced its 682A09 ICP in-line 4-20mA vibration transmitter, which can turn existing accelerometers into 24/7 vibration-monitoring sensors.

Model 682A09 installs in-line with any industrial accelerometer and converts the vibration signal to a 4-20mA velocity output that can be trended with PLC, DCS or Scada control-room systems.

Its sleek design installs right into the cable run; no DIN rails, cabinets or special power are required.

Customers can take their existing accelerometers and turn them into 24/7 vibration-monitoring devices for their most critical machinery.

The model 682A09 is a stainless-steel, hermetically sealed design capable of operating in the harshest environments with two-pin MIL connector input and three-pin MIL connector output.

It accepts a 100mV/g analogue signal, converts to 4-20mA output and operates off of loop-power supplied by the PLC, DCS or Scada system.

In addition, the 682A09 outputs the 100mV/g analogue signal via its three-pin output connector.

The analogue signal can be run to a central collection point, allowing the user to maintain the FFT capability of the original system.
