Switch boxes assist with route-based data collection by terminating the cables of permanently installed sensors at convenient, safe, data collection locations. The unit does not contain a power supply rather it relies on transferring excitation power provided by the vibration data collector or signal conditioner to connected sensors. Since excitation power is presented to each sensor when its measurement channel is selected, the sensor’s settling time must be considered prior to taking measurements.
- Ensure technician well-being by providing a safe, centralized data collection point
- Improve technician efficiency with temperature & vibration outputs available for each channel in one enclosure
- Save time by manipulating dial rather than changing connection in order to move from channel to channel
