Monitoring and evaluating foundation settlements, displacements and dynamic movements of shafts, housings and structures during operation.
The results of such analyses provide additional information about the behavior of machines and systems during operation. Fault conditions can be identified and corrective measures such as alignment targets can be derived in order to increase the safety and reliability of the machines, in addition to their service life.
Operating Deflection Shape (ODS) enables the visualization of structural vibrations and flows of machine movements. This video shows an ODS applied to the movements of a wind turbine in relation to the Earth's core.
This visualization is based on measurement results from VIBGUARD and on hybrid triaxial accelerometers, which are mounted on the rotor.
