Vibration monitoring with VibChecker

Vibration monitoring is a cost-effective predictive maintenance strategy. Changes in the vibration level always imply changes in operating condition, but in most cases, vibration measurement can detect a problem long before the machine is damaged. Conducting regular vibration measurements on fans, motors, pumps, compressors, and other rotating industrial machinery can help prevent premature replacement of machine parts and minimize downtime.

Machine vibration is the cause of many problems in industrial equipment. When integrated into your normal maintenance activities, periodic vibration measurement with VibChecker will go a long way to help keep your equipment operational.

Vibration measurement provides early detection of:

  • Imbalance
  • Misalignment
  • Looseness
  • Gear mesh

Suited to both new and experienced users, VibChecker covers the basic vibration monitoring needs in predictive maintenance. Designed for quick and accurate on-site vibration checks, VibChecker makes a proactive approach to maintenance economically feasible for everyone.

The VibChecker instrument can be used to effectively monitor vibration levels in most types of rotating machinery, such as electric motors, fans, and pumps, in a diversity of industrial environments.

Technical overview

VibChecker is a compact-sized instrument for vibration measurement in the 10-1000 Hz frequency range. Measuring results are immediately and automatically evaluated against ISO standards with a clear, intuitive indication of vibration severity. Measuring results can be stored for trending of vibration levels and follow-up.

The instrument measures either with a built-in probe (VC200) or with an external transducer. It is push-button controlled and basic measurement data are entered manually. Evaluated measuring results are indicated by green-yellow-red symbols, and a time signal and its FFT spectrum are produced for easy pattern recognition. Measuring results can also be transferred to a file for further processing, for example, in Microsoft Excel.


  • Size: VC200: 207x74x41 mm (8.1x2.9x1.6 in), VC250: 184x74x41 mm (7.2x2.9x1.6 in)
  • Weight: VC200: 335 g (11.8 ounces), VC250: 300 g (10.6 ounces)
  • Display: 2.4" Color TFT LCD Display
  • Protection class: IP65


External transducers

Choose if you would like to carry out your measurement with a built-in probe (VC200) or use an external vibration transducer. The external transducers, perfect to use with VibChecker, come straight or angled with an integral magnet.

Carrying case

The carrying case for VibChecker has been updated with durability in mind. The case is perfectly suited for your instrument, cables and any external transducers you need to quickly carry out measurements on your maintenance rounds.


Other accessories available are a USB communication cable, charger, cable adapters and a kit for screen protection.
