Products|Predictive maintenance|Sensor for Pump / MotorSensor for Turbine / Compressor CA Series Compact piezoelectric Acceleration transducers. Responds to a wide frequency range. Product OverviewPiezoelectric Acceleration Transducers CA series are built-in-amplifier type piezoelectric acceleration transducers designed for continuous vibration monitoring of rotating machines such as electric motors, pumps, fans and gearboxes. The transducers can be used for machine condition monitoring required by the standards such as ISO 10816, ISO 20816 and API 670. Since iｍportance of the machine condition and diagnositic systems has increased in recent years, we have released the lower price, but high performance acceleration transducers into our lineup so the transducers can be used for the system in reasonable cost. Features Built-in-amplifier type (IEPE Type) Small size and reasonable cost Compliant with API standard 670 (API: American Petroleum Institute) Intrinsically safe (TIIS、ATEX、NEPSI、KTL) Type approval certificate for marine use IP67 Dust tight and water proof System Configuration DiagramMounting techniques and frequency responseThe accuracy of high frequency response is directly affected by the mounting technique of the acceleration sensor. In general, the greater the mounted surface area contact between the sensor and the machine surface, the more accurate high frequency response will be. Selection Guide of an Optimal Vibration TransducerMeasuring the health of your rotating machinery begins at the transducer. Before choosing a transducer, a thorough understanding of the machine type, application and transducer’s specifications must be taken into account. The following table is an overview of applications for displacement, velocity and acceleration measurements. Please consult a vibration expert to find out what is right for your plant. Type Eddy-Current Displacement Transducer Piezoelectric Velocity Transducer Piezoelectric Acceleration Transducer Relevant Machinery Steam turbines Large or medium pumps Compressors (plain journal bearings) Gas turbines Generators Motors (plain journal bearings) Fans (plain journal bearings) Gearboxes (plain journal bearings) Gas turbines Medium-sized pumps Generators Motors Fans Motors (rolling bearing) Pumps (rolling bearing) Gearboxes (rolling bearing) Applications Detects relative radial displacement vibrations from low to high speed Detects axial position and rotation speed Detects bearing or casing velocity vibrations for machinery rotating at low to medium speeds Detects absolute displacement vibrations by applying first-order integration. Detects bearing, casing, or gearbox acceleration vibrations for machinery rotating at high speeds Detects absolute velocity vibrations by applying first-order integration.

Sensitivity varies depending on the electrical properties of the target material. Beat noise from interference may arise if multiple sensors are placed close to each other. Due to unwanted low-frequency phase characteristics, care must be taken when measuring phase analysis. Secured with stud bolt to avoid unwanted high-frequency characteristics due to installation with magnets or adhesive. May be unreliable in low-frequency ranges, particularly if displacement is obtained by second-order integration. Secured with stud bolt to avoid unwanted high-frequency characteristics due to installation with magnets or adhesive.
