Vibration Analysis Awareness


The course is intended for those who want a basic introduction on how to correctly collect a vibration measurement from rotating machinery using a vibration data-collector and then upload the collected data to a database for analysis and reporting.

The course is ideal for those that might be new to vibration analysis, or are responsible for collecting vibration data in the field and just want to be more confident in collecting good data, understanding the data and interpreting the information for fault diagnosis and correction.

On this course, delegates will use a mix of theory and practical learning to reinforce key learning points. The practical element will involve exploring Emerson’s 2140 data collector and MHM software (or alternative hardware & software) to understand how to set up routes, change settings and collect good data.
