What is a Vibration Monitoring System?

A vibration monitoring system is a set of tools used to measure one or more parameters in order to identify changes in the behavior of the machinery. In Fact, the main purpose of these systems is to help in scheduling the maintenance activities based on a process called Predictive Analysis.

New Vibration Monitoring System with wireless transmission and long battery life are now replacing the industrial wired accelerometers all over the world.

Introducing Phantom

Phantom is a wireless vibration monitoring system that integrates other parameters such as temperature, current, RPM and speed into a single diagnosis system. In addition, our sensors have a battery life that lasts between 3 to 6 years and are very easy to install.

Equally important, our vibration monitoring system can send data to a local database or to our cloud-based system, EIAnalytic. Also, you can keep track of your machinery using any device such as a smartphone, computer or tablet.

Why Phantom® Vibration Monitoring System?

Our condition monitoring system will help you, not only to predict machine failure, but also to save huge amount of costs due to non-programmed down times in production.

These are the most common failures that can be identified by our condition monitoring system:

  • Bearing Failure Stage I, II, III, and IV
  • Imbalance
  • Shaft and Bearing Wear
  • Mechanical Looseness
  • Misalignment
  • Electrical noise
  • Resonance
  • Among others

Easy Installation

Our wireless sensors are very easy to install. Firstly, adhere the base to your machine and the sensor will be screwed to it. Then, the connection to the Gateway will be done automatically without any intervention. Finally, configure the software. It is as easy as that!.

Wireless Technology

Our vibration monitoring system uses ultra-low power BLE 5.0 technology. Therefore, our wireless sensors can reach a useful life of 3 to 6 years without the need to change the battery. Additionally, this technology is the most reliable in the market, providing distance ranges of up to 1 km with no obstacles and 250 meters in line-of-sight with competing signals.

Furthermore, our wireless sensors have been successfully tested, even inside grounded metal cabinets, reaching distances of up to 60 meters. One of our clients even stated:

“Phantom is the magic unicorn system we’ve been looking for.”

Vibration monitoring sensors placed on machine

Meet Phantom Vibration Sensor:

  • 10kHz FMax
  • Full waveform and spectrum data
  • Programmable Internal RMS Trigger
  • Sample Rate: 25600 Hz
  • Lines of resolution: 6400
  • 3 years battery life
  • Internal temperature sensor

Triaxial Vibration Sensor

Our vibration monitoring system includes state-of-the-art Triaxial Vibrations Sensors with amazing wireless capabilities. Hence being able to send 3 simultaneous FFT and Time waveform recordings for all three axis at once. We have improved to the maximum the energy consumption resulting in life batteries up to 6 years. Additionally our wireless accelerometers can wake up on preset alarm levels to send data and alarms.

As an additional value, all of our wireless accelerometers have a built-in integrator so they can calculate velocity parameters for alarms. This way, RMS values can be sent as well with a selectable periodicity.

Temperature monitoring-Phantom


All of our wireless sensors include temperature, however, we added wireless temperature sensors dedicated to measure extreme temperatures.

  • Wireless temperature sensor, Type K Thermocouple: range of -210° to 1800° C
  • Wireless temperature sensor, Contactless: -50° to 350° C
Current monitoring-Phantom


Phantom includes non-invasive wireless current sensors to monitor power consumption from your electric motors. Moreover, each sensor includes 3 simultaneous channels to measure each of the 3 motor’s phases.

RPM Tachometer Phantom


We also created an RPM sensor for our vibration monitoring system. This sensor integrates your machine’s rotational speed to the overall analysis. As a result, you will be able to compare vibration, temperature and power consumption at different speeds.

General-Purpose Sensors

Phantom includes general-purpose sensors, which are able to monitor the signal of any sensor, for example:

  • Displacement sensors
  • Pressure sensors
  • Speed sensors
  • Lubrication condition sensors

No Software Costs

Our Vibration Monitoring System includes the powerful vibration analysis software DigivibeMX® without any limitation. With DigivibeMX®, you can perform a deep analysis on each spectrum and signal, as well as identify the tendency of vibrations.

Vibration Monitoring Online Cloud | EIAnalytic

EIAnalytic is our cloud-based database system for Phantom®. It provides simple accessibility through a web browser or mobile app. Additionally, our cloud allows direct connections from the DigivibeMX® for data management, as if it were on its own hard drive.

Use your Phone to Scan your Machine’s Code

Scan the code of a machine and you will get its condition. If you walk through the plant or factory and you wish to know the status of a machine, you only need to scan its code with your smartphone. Our Wiser Vibe app will display all the information related to your machine. Truly simple monitoring system!

Vibration Monitoring Software

Automatic Learning

Our vibration monitoring system includes a powerful learning protocol for your machinery vibration. During a period (7 days by default), Phantom will learn from the vibration of your machine to identify a “Normal” behavior.

Phantom includes 3 types of learning:

RMS: Is the simplest learning process (but not less reliable). During this period, Phantom will track the RMS of velocity, acceleration, and acceleration envelope to define later a behavior.

Envelope alarms: During the learning process, our continuous monitoring system will evaluate each of the spectra to determine a normal behavior in each of the corresponding frequencies. So, in the future, Phantom will know when an unknown frequency appears or any other known frequency increases in amplitude.

Preset Bearing and Gearboxes faults: Particular emphasis is made for tracking preset bearing and gearboxes faults.

Support and Training

We know is important to realize custumer needs. Hence, Erbessd Instruments® offers free basic online support via telephone, Email and TeamViewer, as well as videos and tutorials which are constantly updated.

Open Databases

Per our philosophy “Databases belong to our clients” our databases are totally open. Consequently, you can access your database with any SQL or MySQL based software, giving you the option to link them to other softwares like Scada or CRM.

Are you a developer?

Use our vibration monitoring sensors on your own system. We offer APIs for developers to integrate Phantom to their own framework. The architecture of Phantom’s APIs, will allow you to access and control an infinity of sensors and gateways in order to configure alarms and recording times.
