The acceleration sensor can be used, for example, to measure the vibration load on the device and to proactively determine the need for maintenance, for example, a process pump. In the situation described, during storage of the pump, the characteristic frequency oscillation point (resonant frequency) of the pump changes, which can be detected using the accelerometer and the measuring equipment connected to it. This allows maintenance of the pump to be planned, and the necessary parts to be ordered and replaced at the right time.
Aircraft jet turbine wear and maintenance needs are actively monitored with accelerometers. Based on the vibration data received from the sensor, it is possible to accurately monitor the condition of the jet turbine and adequately anticipate the need for maintenance. This is also directly related to flight safety.
The Finnish Institute for Occupational Medicine sets the maximum values for the vibration exposure of machines. The measured vibration loads determine the maximum operating times of the machines for the drivers or users of the machines. These vibration levels are measured with accelerometers.
