Magnet Bases for Accelerometers Offer High Pull Strength in a Small Package

 

Germantown, MD - Wilcoxon Research has released two new magnet bases for accelerometers, models B12 and B13. The new magnet bases have a narrow diameter for easy handling in the field and high pull strength for reliable vibration data measurements.

 

Model B12 is a two-pole magnet base with a 7/8 inch (22 mm) diameter and 20 pounds of force, suitable for accelerometers such as Wilcoxon models 786A and 780A. Model B13 is a two-pole magnet base with a 1 inch (25 mm) diameter and 35 pounds of force, suitable for accelerometers such as Wilcoxon models 793 and 787A.

 

The use of magnet bases is convenient and quick for walk-around data collection because attaching a magnetic base allows the vibration sensor to be easily moved from point to point. When using piezoelectric sensors to measure vibration, the sensor must directly contact the machine surface. Wilcoxon maximized the pull strength of these magnet bases to provide the most reliable measurements.

 

Both bases were designed with portable vibration monitoring in mind. The two-pole magnet can be used on both flat and curved surfaces. The bases have a narrow diameter for easy handling in the field and a knurled edge for a better grip than smooth a surface. The knurled edges are made up of straight ridges for easy cleaning. The B12 and B13 magnet bases have a 1/4-28 tapped hole that can accommodate a variety of threaded stud adapter sizes such as M6, M8, 3/8, and 10-32 for compatibility with most industrial accelerometers.

 

 Wilcoxon Research Inc, a Meggitt group company, is committed to providing innovative vibration instrumentation, backed by outstanding customer service and a generous warranty. Wilcoxon's Total Lower Cost (TLC) of Ownership means that you won't waste time and money replacing failed sensors or waiting for items with long lead times.
