CardVibro Air2 Series(VM-2012 / VM-2012C)

Vibration measuring systems

CardVibro Air2 Series

The first portable vibrometer communicating by WiFi

The use of high-speed communication and powerful data processing allows for more precise measurements in environments that previously made vibration measurements difficult. This enables more accurate testing in a wider range of conditions.
The application (Air2 Light) demanded much has been released making it easier to use.

    【When using a tablet with Android 11 or later and communicating with the DB-2012 data management software】
    We have confirmed that if the group settings are sent while the Android app for Air2 is running (“Synchronise” in “PC to Device”), the group settings sent last time will not be saved. To restart the Android application, quit the application from the multitasking screen of the tablet and start it from the icon of the Android application on the home screen. For information on how to restart the Android app, please refer to the website of the manufacturer of the tablet in use.

Simultaneous measurement 

  • There are many functions to express characteristics of vibration in general, so conventional vibrometers usually needed to switch the mode every time to measure by each factor. However, on pressing a button, you can measure acceleration, velocity and displacement simultaneously when you use CardVibro Air2 function for simultaneous measurement. It can save operating time and prevent miss-measurements.

Evaluation function

  • CardVibro Air2 can quickly evaluate the condition of the rotational machinery such as blowers or motors at the site with its customized standard. CardVibro Air2 enables everybody to make same judgements on same machinery conditions, having the judgement functions regarding standard as the Vibration Severity ISO-10816 (JIS-B-0906) and original bearing evaluation means.

USB cable connection

  • Even if wireless connection is not available, measurements by USB cable connection to tablet PC are available.

    • For stable measurements, the optional USB plug bracket is recommended.
    • The USB host cable must be provided by the customer.

FFT analysis 

  • When the measured vibration level is too large, FFT analysis is available to investigate. CardVibro Air2 has a high resolution analysis function of 12800 lines. Comparison of bearing vibration is possible on frequency components.

  • FFT分析Functions

Data saving 

  • All acquired data can be saved. Using the data management software*, highly efficient management is possible on the transferred data from PC.(*option)

  • データ保存

Waveform observation

  • Beat phenomena or scrathes on bearings give some features on the vibration waveforms. It allows easy recognition of faults by waveform or graph observation. Maximum 30 minute* waveform can be recorded.

    *Depends on a condition

  • 波形測定Functions

Continuous monitoring function

  • Waveforms or FFT results are monitored almost in real time.

  • 連続モニタリングFunctions

Route setting function

  • If the measurement point and order are specified in advance, the data will be displayed in the order. Data management is possible by machine name, measurement point, or registration number.

    • Data management software (option) is needed.

Trend graph function

  • The trend graph which needed conventionally data management software now can be displayed solely by Air2 Light without using such software. Furthermore, such data can be saved by CSV to be attached to e-mail.
