IMI Sensors, a division of PCB Piezotronics launched an ATEX approved USB programmable smart vibration switch, designed for continuous protection of cooling towers, fin fans, pumps, HVAC systems and other machinery operated in hazardous areas. The 686B series is hermetically sealed and mounts with a single stud like a sensor. The smart vibration switch includes an embedded piezoelectric accelerometer, monitors vibration velocity and can be reset remotely. This vibration switch is ideal for condition monitoring, predictive maintenance, and process control in harsh industrial environments. The included sensors interface directly with vibration data collectors and analysis equipment, as well as process monitoring equipment, PLC, DCS, alarm, and SCADA systems.
