FAG Detector III – The solution for monitoring and balancing


Detector III

FAG Detector III is a handy, easy to use vibration measuring device. Due to preinstalled standard configurations in accordance with DIN ISO 10816, this is a plug-and-play solution allowing early and authoritative information on the condition of machinery, entirely without time-consuming training or system configuration work.

This allows, for example, rapid inspection of ventilators, pumps, electric motors, compressors or vacuum pumps. All the user must do is start the measurement process by pressing a few buttons and wait until it is completed. The device evaluates the measurement results and presents the results, with self-explanatory symbols, on the device display.


The system also has the following features:

  • non-contact temperature measurement
  • speed detection
  • route function
  • report generator

Analysis software
For more detailed analysis, the PC software Trendline is available free of charge and includes comprehensive functions. These include the Viewer, which gives the user a wide range of tools for data evaluation. The integrated rolling bearing database, containing approximately 20 000 bearings from various manufacturers, facilitates easier and more efficient analysis of the measured data. Since the damage frequencies can be incorporated in the measurement results, simple damage analysis is possible.

Automatic detection of measurement points
The automatic detection of measurement points through the use of RFID technology gives error-free and precise identification of the measurement points on a measurement route. FAG Detector III identifies the measurement points by means of RFID tags on the machinery. With the proven FAG Detector III, mobile vibration and temperature monitoring is thus quicker, simpler and more reliable. The functionality of automatic measurement point detection is not available worldwide.

Balancing function
A further special feature of FAG Detector III is the balancing function. For this purpose, the optionally available Balancing Kit is required. This makes it possible to not only detect but also eliminate imbalances. The results of the balancing process are also transferred to the Trendline software for evaluation.
