Polytec’s RSV-150 Remote Sensing Vibrometer is designed to remotely and precisely measure vibrations from large and distant structures using a laser probe. The sensor conveniently monitors the dynamics and stability of free standing buildings, operating machinery and critical production facilities, quickly and effortlessly.
The underlying laser-Doppler interferometer technology eliminates tedious contact sensor installation while maintaining safe monitoring distances from hazardous and inaccessible structures. Its simple point-and-shoot operating principle results in a practical and always ready-to-use diagnostic tool for the field and for the lab.
Simply mount the sensor head on the rigid tripod, use the geared head and fine adjustment to precisely position the visible laser probe on the exact feature of the object being examined and start your measurement. The long cable between the compact controller and the sensor head permits flexible positioning. With the optional VibSoft data acquisition software, you can immediately evaluate your test data anywhere – in the field or on-site.
The RSV-150 system is designed for high-sensitivity, remote condition monitoring. An innovative laser probe allows the acquisition of vibrational velocity and displacement with micrometer precision at substantial stand-off distances. Thus, structures such as transmission towers, buildings and bridges, industrial facilities, and heavy machinery can be safely and accurately monitored from far away. This remote but precise capability allows for difficult measurements not previously possible, or just too time consuming or dangerous with conventional sensors.
