Reliability: Improve condition monitoring with shock pulse technology

Shock pulse technology is generally well known to vibration analysts and reliability technicians. A handheld combination of sensor and display meter would typically be used to detect discontinuities in bearings and would respond to the impact of two masses. The resulting shockwaves will create a shock pulse of a certain magnitude that commonly manifests itself at a particular repeat frequency. The respective magnitude of relevant excursions and their trends can be observed by the person entrusted with the monitoring task.

The resulting shockwaves will create a shock pulse of a certain magnitude that commonly manifests itself at a particular repeat frequency.

While the underlying principles have remained the same, progress was recently made with electronic means of detection and display. New portable sensors and intuitive mobil
