VIBROCONTROL 1500 (VC-1500) is a powerful and low-priced solution that enables measurement and monitoring simultaneously at 2 bearings of your machine of:

  • Casing Vibration
  • Rolling-Element Bearing Condition
  • Temperature

The acceleration sensor AS-062/T1 integrates a temperature sensor in the housing besides the elements necessary for vibration measurement. With the mounting of the sensor, all three measured variables are acquired simultaneously and expensive additional components and wiring costs are unnecessary.

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 setpoint. A violation of the preset limit values is signaled 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 with the measured value of the measured value of the bearing (in as new condition), the "Bearing Condition Value" is displayed.

Trend Measurement

Provides you with an overview of the measurement trend, the VC-1500 has a trend measurement function for the casing vibration, rolling-element bearing condition and temperature. The display is provided right at the instrument over a selectable period between 10 days and 10 months.

See Options: Protective Housing and Control-Center-Software

VIBROCONTROL 1500 (VC-1500) installed inside the protective housing is ideal for applications that require the electronic monitoring equipment to be installed in the immediate vicinity of the monitored machine.

  • Installation of one or two units
  • IP 65 protection class
  • 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.
  • In harsh installation environmental conditions, the electronic equipment is protected from dust and spray water.

The protective housing has space for one or two VC-1500, including the power supplies. When the housing is closed, the instrument display is visible through the glass front window.

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


With the aid of the Control-Center-Software technology, it is possible for the user to configure the VIBROCONTROL 1500 directly via the internet and to visualize the results - remote monitoring. The machine vibrations can be analyzed using trends, frequency analysis or post mortem information from anywhere world-wide

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

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.
