Mechanical vibrations

Edge Analytics provides information about the condition of your assets. The condition monitoring of your assets is based on the monitoring and analysis of mechanical vibrations.

Mechanical vibrations can be measured and felt on surfaces of objects. In asset monitoring these include surfaces of machines, components and foundations. Mechanical vibrations are also known as "impact sound", because they propagate exclusively in solid objects. In contrast, the audible "airborne sound" moves in gaseous media, for example, air.

Mechanical vibrations always occur when masses are moving. These masses include:

  • Rotating or oscillating parts of machines
  • Gases or liquids that impinge on solid surfaces
