The 750-645 2-channel vibration and roller bearing monitoring module from WAGO Corp. (Germantown, WI) tracks machine vibration conditions. Based on ISO’s 10816-3 mechanical vibration standard, it monitors and analyzes vibration severity and shock pulse feedback using WAGO’s 750-925 Tandem-Piezo(R) acceleration sensor.

Mechanical shock pulse process data is transmitted to superior control systems via field bus. The resulting analysis provides the basis for an anticipatory maintenance schedule. This ensures component replacement only when necessary, avoiding unforeseen downtime. In the event of excessive vibration, the module can enact a shutdown, preventing further damage. The module eliminates time-consuming collection of machine health data by handheld devices. Programming is also efficient. It allows configuration of good, warning, and fault limits via WAGO-I/O-CHECK software.

The 750-645 module and 750-925 sensor can be combined with any of the 300+ digital, analog and specialty modules in the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM to create comprehensive monitoring systems.
