Measuring Shaft Displacement Using A PROTOR System

fa fa-file-text-o

The measurement of shaft displacement is an important vibration measurement for rotating machines. Shaft displacement is usually monitored by non-contact shaft displacement probes that produce a voltage proportional to the distance of the shaft surface relative to the tip of the probe. Ideally two shaft displacement probes will be fitted to measure the displacement in both the horizontal and vertical directions. Actually the probes do not have to be exactly horizontal and vertical as Prosig’s PROTOR system is able to resolve into the horizontal and vertical directions.
