Vibration Data Collection

Learn about the issues causing data sample errors and how to prevent them.

Poor vibration data is a set of data that is not a true representation of the actual signature taken from the machine during normal operation.  There are several causes of poor vibration data including:

  • A damaged accelerometer due to heavy impact or broken circuit on cabling
  • The machine not running when data collection occurs
  • The wrong data collection point being used
  • Not allowing for sufficient settling time and abrupt end to the data collection process
  • Poor data collection surface selected
