P,  Vibration Sensor

Proximity Probe

A vibration sensor used in critical machinery to measure shaft motion and movement at or near the bearings. Eddy current displacement probes detect changes, or losses, in the magnetic flux density field generated by the presence of a material target. The probe, when used in conjunction with a probe driver or transmitter, can effectively and accurately measure changes in the distance down to thousands of an inch (0.001) or mils. In position applications, the probe measures the thermal growth of casings, rotors, and thrust bearing wear.
