M+P International VibRunner24

The VibRunner measurement hardware platform is designed for the specific needs of noise & vibration analysis, vibration testing and process monitoring. It can be used with m+p international's proven SO Analyzer, VibControl and Codasoftware solutions.

VibRunner offers maximum modularity: The mainframe can be used as a standalone desktop instrument or mounted into a 19" rack. For applications requiring a high number of measurement channels multiple VibRunner systems will be exactly synchronized by use of a daisy chain connection. The daisy-chained configuration allows the user to place the VibRunner systems close to the measuring points. This minimizes costly transducer cabling and increases measurement quality. The powerful 1 Gbit/s Ethernet interface serves for communication to the host PC. To ensure safe and fast communication even when a high number of input channels is utilized, the VibRunner hardware is integrated into its own subnet which is independent from other networks.

Based on the latest IC technology VibRunner provides high-precision measurement capability and outstanding real-time performance. With 24-bit sigma-delta A/D converters with up to 102.4 kHz sampling rate VibRunner allows for alias-protected measurements in a frequency range up to 40 kHz and more than 120 dB spurious-free dynamic range. The input channels can be switched between single-ended and full differential mode, thus allowing potential-free measurements such as required on bridge circuits.

Additional VibRunner modules provide analog outputs for vibration testing or modal shaker applications requiring a drive signal for the shaker. An automatic, analog shutdown circuitry guarantees the highest safety possible during the test. Tacho inputs with 32-bit high-speed up/down counters are available to measure synchronous signals on rotating machines for vibration analysis.
