Impact sensor monitors equipment performance
PHD Inc. has introduced the PHD series KG impact sensor for monitoring equipment performance. It attaches to any piece of equipment that has motion.
Featuring single-axis/bidirectional sensitivity, the sensor attaches to the moving part of a machine or device and monitors impact. A PLC can interpret the signal to warn of erratic operation or shut down a system to prevent catastrophic failure.
Using the KG Programmer, the sensor can measure an impact and relay that value to the user. A single programmer can service an unlimited number of impact sensors throughout an entire plant.
