The 3-in-1 solution

Are you looking for a cost-effective solution to simultaneously monitor

  • Casing vibration
  • Rolling-element bearing condition
  • Temperature

at two bearings of your machine?

Then the VIBROCONTROL 1500 is the ideal solution. Its acceleration sensor AS-062/T1 performs several tasks at once: it measures both temperature and vibration. The sensor once mounted acquires all data simultaneously, thereby doing away with expensive additional components and wiring costs!

Vibration monitoring

Measurement of casing vibration is in accordance with the ISO Standard 10816. The two actual measured values are shown in the display, as well as their percentage values with respect to the set limit. A violation of the preset limit values is signalled visually (LED) as well as through the built-in relays for Alert and Danger alarms.

Rolling-element bearing condition monitoring

For acquiring the rolling-element bearing condition, a DFT of the sensor signal in the range 500 to 5000 cycles per second is performed, and the sum of the largest RMS value of vibration acceleration is formed. A comparison of the measured values with the bearing values taken prior to use is shown as the “Bearing Condition Value”.

Trend measurement

The VC-1500 has a trend measurement function for the casing vibration, rolling-element bearing condition and temperature over a selectable period between 10 days and 10 months.


  • Remote monitoring
  • Overview: trend and frequency analysis / post mortem
  • Network configuration: supports up to 40 units

Order code:

  • AC-4201

Delivery: CD with software and  USB/CAN interface converter

The Control-Center-Software allows the user to configure the VIBROCONTROL 1500 directly via the Internet and to visualize the results – remote monitoring. Machine vibrations can be analyzed using trends, frequency analysis or post mortem information – from anywhere in the world.

Up to 40 devices can be integrated into a VIBROCONTROL 1500 network, thereby enabling the effective monitoring and diagnostics of larger systems comprised of many machines.

Two individually adjustable data transmission rates enable the user to respond flexibly over any distance within a plant.

Depending on the situation, a high data transmission rate for short distances or a lower data rate for larger distances can be selected.

VIBROCONTROL 1500 in a protective housing

  • Installation of one or two units
  • Pre-assembled and pre-wired
  • IP 65 protection class

Order code:


AC/DC >> with/without power supply

01 or 02 >> one or two units

The installation of the VC-1500 inside the protective housing – VC-1500/xx/xx – is ideal for applications that require the electronic monitoring equipment to be installed in the immediate vicinity of the monitored machine.

The VC-1500 standard IP 20 classification can be raised to protection class IP 65 through the combination of the electronics mounted within a protective housing.

The electronic equipment is protected from dust and spray water and is ideal for use in harsh installation environmental conditions.

The protective housing is suitable for one or two VC-1500, including the power supplies. Thanks to the glass front window, the instrument display is visible even when the housing is closed.

The VC-1500/xx/xx is pre-assembled, pre-wired and, depending on the version, has a special terminal plate, which provides a sufficient number of openings for connecting the inputs and outputs.
