Germantown, WI – Wago’s 750-645 2-channel vibration and roller bearing monitoring module (VIB-I/O) tracks machine vibration conditions. Based on ISO’s 10816-3 mechanical vibration standard, the 750-645 VIB-I/O’s channels monitor and analyze vibration severity and shock pulse feedback using thecompany’s 750-925 Tandem-Piezo acceleration sensor.

Wago’s 750-645 2-channel vibration and roller bearing monitoring module (VIB-I/O) tracks machine vibration conditions.

Mechanical shock pulse process data is transmitted to superior control systems (such as manufacturing execution system) via fieldbus. The resulting analysis provides the basis for an anticipatory maintenance schedule to ensure component replacement only when necessary. In the event of excessive vibration, 750-645 VIB-I/O can enact a shutdown.
The 750-645 VIB-I/O eliminates the time-consuming collection of machine health data by handheld devices. The easy-to-program 750-645 enables configuration of “good,” “warning,” and “fault” limits via Wago-I/O-Check software. Users can set alarm and warning threshold in the process image or in the software.
“The 750-645 VIB-I/O is a proactive way to ensure plant efficiency,” said Mark DeCramer, product manager for Wago-I/O-System. “Continuous online analysis of machine health conditions via fieldbus can potentially save thousands of dollars by preventing machine downtime, emergency repairs and costly scrap.”
The products can be combined with any of more than 300 digital, analog, and specialty modules in the Wago-I/O-System to create monitoring systems.
