Machine vibration data acquisition with ATEX protection

Especially in industries such as petrochemicals or Oil & Gas, it is critical to prevent unplanned shutdowns and machine failures as it may cause extensive damage due to the explosive nature of these environments.

From data collection, vibration analysis through to machine troubleshooting, VIBSCANNER EX is the all-rounder handheld data collector and vibration analyzer for hazardous environments. Its ATEX zone 1 rating allows you to take advantage of the versatile functionalities of the proven VIBSCANNER in explosive environmental conditions.

With OMNITREND software, the universal PRUFTECHNIK Condition Monitoring software platform, measurements can be stored and analyzed. Diagnosis reports can be generated, measurement tasks can be pre-configured and uploaded to the device for route-based data collection.

As with all our data collectors and vibration analyzers, you will benefit from free software and firmware updates, and low ownership cost.
