Built-in expertise

VCM-3 is one step ahead of all other field devices. It uses specially defined measurements that not only automatically detect developing faults earlier, but also give a diagnostic indication on the type of fault and its severity. We packed over 20 years of condition monitoring experience in that little box to make your life easier.

High-tech throughput gives scalability

VCM-3 is among the most powerful data acquisition and processing field units in the market. And it’s cyber secure. It has been designed for scalability, so you can get started now with the basic model.  As your experience and needs grow, we’ll be there to assist you with updates and enhancements.

IoT pathway to higher productivity

The system is designed to optimize machine healthcare to the highest, yet most cost-effective level. It will include future seamless integration with your existing historian, so you can use existing data management infrastructure without buying other servers. It also will include a cloud solution, where no client expertise or data monitoring infrastructure is needed at all. And we also offer services to help you every step of the way.

Data management and installation made easy

The built-in OPC UA server enables the VCM-3 data to be seamlessly integrated to your DCS, SCADA, data historian and other systems. In fact, VCM-3 is one of the easiest field devices on the market to install and commission.

VCM-3 can add a new dimension of healthcare awareness on your assets and help turn vibration into real business value. Contact us or your local sales representative to find out more, including upcoming versions.
