Fast mount method for accelerometers

22 July 2009

Monitran has made its general purpose vibration sensors and accelerometers available as “Grip Tight” (GT) versions. With Grip Tight (patent pending), the fitting or removal of a sensor to/from its GT stud takes only seconds - yet the mechanical bond, essential for the transfer of energy, is assured.

Unlike a traditional threaded mounting option, there is no need to screw the sensor on the stud. This is a major plus when using sensors with integral cables, which would otherwise be twisted as the sensor is tightened on the stud. The Grip Tight method also removes, completely, the risk of shearing the stud-to-machine bond; be it screw or adhesive.

Sensors available with the new GT body include Monitran’s MTN/1100 family, which have isolated ac outputs and are ideal for vibration analysis, and the MTN/1185 family, which have dc outputs and are ideal for machine protection.

Grip Tight is ideally suited to applications where the vibration sensor is not necessarily going to be a permanent fixture. For example, the sensor might be taken from machine to machine as part of a regular vibration-based condition monitoring routine.
