Mechanical vibration switch is designed to meet all requirements in a single, affordable package. It provides vibration protection for low to medium speed machinery.
- Meets all requirements for mechanical switch in a single, affordable package
- Weatherproof and optional hazardous area rating
- Local and optional remote reset with startup delay
- SPDT or DPDT switch output contacts
Our electronic switches offer single or dual setpoints, adjustable time delays, external setpoint adjustments and more.
- Microprocessor design, USB or keypad configurable
- Multiple sensor type input
- Sensitivity is not affected by rotating speed of machinery
- Solid-state relay contacts used for alarm and/or shutdown
Transmitters provide a 4-20mA DC signal output proportional to the vibration amplitude, and are ideal for applications where a PLC, DCS, or other automation system will be used instead of a stand-alone vibration monitor. Metrix offers seismic transmitters with a wide variety operating temperatures, frequency responses, scale factors, case materials, connector types, mounting options, and hazardous area approvals.

Rack based monitoring system
The Monitoring System is a rackbased continuous machinery monitoring platform designed to fully comply with American Petroleum Institute Standard 670 for machinery protection systems. Up to 56 vibration/position/speed channels or 84 temperature channels can be monitored and displayed in a single 19” rack.
The system measures and alarms on shaft radial vibration, axial thrust position, casing seismic vibration (both velocity and acceleration),temperature, and shaft rotative speed. All necessary monitoring functionality is provided using only four basic module types, simplifying spare parts requirements.
The Our team possesses deep experience gained through developing and sustaining more than four generations of successive API 670-compliant machinery protection systems. We pay attention to every detail, ensuring the system works the way you need it to work in the real world – where details matter.
Robust, rugged construction
The rack chassis is constructed entirely of industrial‐grade anodized aluminum and stainless steel – every card guide, every faceplate, every rack panel. In addition to excellent RFI/EMI rejection, these materials are built to last while maintaining their good looks. Thhis system looks professional because it is professional.
Easily adaptable mounting
The system’s design allows the same rack to be used in panel cutout, 19” EIA, or bulkhead mounting configurations by simply employing different rack brackets. The chassis, backplane, and all modules remain the same. This also means that you don’t sacrifice valuable space when bulkhead mounting – unlike systems that require twice as much space for bulkhead mounting compared to rack or panel mounting.
High quality, high‐speed backplane
The system uses state-of-the-art backplane connectors and high-speed design techniques to facilitate ultra‐fast data throughput and outstanding reliability.
Full color, backlit touchscreen
With the system’s optional touchscreen, users have at-a-glance, real-time visibility of every channel and status in the rack on a single screen – no scrolling, no multiplexing. We worked closely with users to ensure the system’s display was intuitive, efficient, and attractive, with a rapid update time so there’s no annoying wait for the screen to refresh with current values. It’s also easy to see under all lighting conditions – including outdoors. And, because it uses resistive (not capacitive) technology, it works with fingers, gloves, and stylus.
