Page 30 Vibration App With vibe2know, anyone can determine a vibrating machine's current performance. The user simply inserts a smartphone into the specially designed mount and attaches it to the equipment. The app then immediately measures vibratory amplitude, frequency, oscillating angle, and operating speed, and enables the user to visualize the vibrating machine's motion pattern. By getting a quick indication of these key parameters, operators can avoid a sudden production outage and plan a timely maintenance intervention. vibe2know is available via app stores for iOS, Android, and Windows.
