IMI Sensors, a division of PCB Piezotronics, Inc.'s 682A16 Universal Transmitter for 24/7 vibration monitoring is designed
to protect plant and process machinery (including pumps, motors, fans and other critical rotating
equipment) by providing crucial information that avoids costly downtime
and increases productivity and profitability. The
682A16 universal transmitter works for vibration monitoring applications with
IMI's 4-20 mA sensors or IMI's ICP accelerometers, and can be used with
existing PLC, DCS and SCADA systems leading to alarm, control, or shutdown.
model 682A16 is a DIN rail mounted, relay module with
optional detachable front panel LCD display and programmer (Model 070A80 sold
separately) for industrial monitoring, control and alarm requirements. The
682A16 provides loop power for 2-wire, 4-20 mA sensors and ICP excitation for
analog 8 mV/g to 120 mV/g accelerometers. It also accepts a variety of sensor
input signals including mA, Thermocouple, RTD, Linear Resistance and
The 682A16 is the latest addition to the IMI family of DIN rail mount products. The unit compliments the
existing product line which includes an ICP 4-20 mA vibration transmitter, a fully-programmable
universal transmitter, a DIN rail enclosure, and 24V dc DIN rail mount power
A fully programmable universal transmitter with current output,
voltage output and two set points with Form A relay outputs (2 amp ac, 1 amp dc),
the 682A16 operates from 19.2 to 300 V dc, or 21.5 to 253 V ac power and
normalizes the vibration output. It provides relays independently set (NO or
NC) and features programmable set-points and time delays. The 682A16 also
supports password protection for security and memory retention of all set up
A Tokyo company, Miraisens Inc., has unveiled a device that allows users to move virtual 3D objects around and "feel" them via a vibration sensor. The device has many applications within the gaming, medical, and 3D-printing industries.
In the last few years, use of CFD in building design has increased manifolds. Computational
fluid dynamics is effective in analyzing the flow and thermal properties of air within spaces. It can be used in buildings to find the best measures for comfortable temperature at low energy use.
