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.

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, Phantom can send data to a local database or to our cloud-based system, EIAnalytic. At any moment, you can keep track of your machinery using any device such as a smartphone, computer or tablet.
Our vibration and condition monitoring system will help you to predict machine failures and save huge amount of costs due to non-programmed down times in production.
These are a sample of the most common failures that can be identified by our condition monitoring system:
Wireless Technology in Vibration Monitoring has been developed in response to unmet needs of simplicity, for installation as for industrial cabling requirements.
Our wireless sensors are very easy to install.
The connection of the sensors to the Gateway will be done automatically without any intervention.
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.”
Convenience: This is the most attractive of all the wireless sensors attributes. Sometimes it is just too difficult to place sensors and wires all the way from a machine to a control room. Because the sensors does away with the cables and power requirements, wireless sensors can be placed anywhere within the range.
Reasonable Cost: If you have a PDA or a celular phone, you easily understand why going wireless is much more cost effective than wires. Cabling long distances can be quite expensive compared to wireless sensors.
Ease of use: Well, it is really easy to use and install. All complex parts are already sorted out internally, but of course, as for everything else, there is a learning curve.
Accessibility: Certain places on machines are simply not accessible with wires. Wireless Sensores might be a solution for that.
Phantom Wireless Sensors include now Modbus TCP/IP which is a widely known and used universal communication protocol for industrial applications. Thus, making them compatible with any PLC, Scada system or any other Modbus TCP/IP communicating software.
Meet Phantom Vibration Sensor:
Good vibration monitoring techniques require complete and accurate triaxial accelerometers as well. 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 high vibration levels to send data and alarms.
As an additional value, all of our wireless accelerometers have a built-in integrator so they can, internally, calculate velocity parameters for alarms. This way, RMS values can be sent as well with a selectable periodicity.
Internal temperature is measured as well.
All of our wireless sensors include temperature, however, we added wireless temperature sensors dedicated to measure extreme temperatures.
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.
Our Amperage wireless sensor includes internal temperature as well.
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.
Our General Purpose Wireless sensor adapters are able to monitor virtually any type of signal coming from your own devices, such as:
General Purpose Wireless sensor adapter comes with a LEMO connector with capability of up to 4 channels or 2 differential inputs. Inputs can measure 0 to 5 volts.
As a variation we created a 4-20 mA Wireless sensors adapter. The 24-bit 4-20 mA Input interfaces with any sensor providing a 4-20 mA signal to implement your data into an integrated wireless system. This adapter features 4 channels non-switched battery-saving input that extends the life of the internal battery. It also offers digital filtering which improves measurement accuracy with 10 to 1024 readings/samples and 60 Hz noise rejection.
Our Vibration Monitoring system includes the most powerfull DigivibeMX versión. You can choose between the next sensor:
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
