Description

A balancing instrumentation consists of vibration sensors, RPM sensors, rotary encoders and the signal processing electronics and software to convert the raw sensor data to a readable unbalance result. The purpose of the balancing machine instrumentation is to extract the unbalance signal from a multitude of noise sources such as other rotating elements of the machine, electrical noises in an industrial environment etc.

The excellent unbalance signal extraction capability of Precibalance balancing instrumentation ensures accurate unbalance measurement and ease of unbalance correction. The balancing system is designed to make the process of balancing intuitive, quick and effective. The frontier generation balancing instrumentation from Precibalance, Precibalance-FG is the next iteration of unbalance measurement technologies spanning analog, mixed signal, digital instrumentations, culminating with mathematical unbalance measurement technology of Precibalance-FG. Precibalance balancing instrumentation delivers fast, stable, precise and accurate unbalance measurements eliminating common problems of measurement instrumentation such as electronic drift, need for calibration adjustment etc.
