Condition Monitoring Solution - BK Vibro's VC-8000

VC-8000 Condition Monitoring Solution

VC-8000 – Condition Monitoring Solution – Get more value out of machine vibration.

Upgrade your protection system to condition monitoring.

VC-8000 is our innovative API-670 compliant monitoring system that reliably protects your critical machinery.

Condition Monitoring Solution – Do you realize your vibration data has much more value than just for protection? Protection is like an insurance policy, but condition monitoring is like shares that pay dividends, and upgrading to condition monitoring has never been easier.

Here’s the 3-step process:

  1. Contact us to get a license that enables your measuring modules to perform condition monitoring.
  2. Configure your modules accordingly in the VC-8000 MPS set-up software.
  3. Download the free-of-charge SETPOINT® CMS software and connect it to your hardware.

You’re ready to go! 

Your benefits:

  • Use your existing VC-8000 hardware. No need to add extra hardware or exchange anything.
  • You already have another protection system? No problem: Simply add the VC-8000 hardware and SETPOINT® CMS software as described above.
  • Your VC-8000 is already installed remotely in the field? Not a problem either. The VC-8000 MPS set-up software covers this or let our technical support team do the set-up for you!

Condition Monitoring Solution – Start getting more value out of your machine vibration data and upgrade to condition monitoring today.

Small investment – huge savings: More uptime, better performance, more lead-time to machine maintenance.
