Vibration Sensors Monitor Rotating Equipment

Meggitt has reduced the size and enhanced the performance of several side exit 4-20 mA vibration sensors. The new PCC421 and PCC423 series are smaller, lighter and operate at 105 degrees Celsius.  

The redesigned PCC421 and PCC423 series are 50% lighter weight than previous versions. The sensors also have a 33% lower profile to provide more clearance in small spaces. Meggitt also has installed connector and mounting options. The PCC421 series is available with a traditional MIL-C-5015 connector as well as the M12 connector.

The PCC423 is available with either general-purpose or high-temperature integral cable, each hermetically sealed with a glass-to-metal feedthrough. Both series can be ordered with either a 1/4-28 UNF or M6 captive mounting screw. To simplify ordering for international customers, PCC421 sensors ordered with the M12 connector will be shipped with the M6 captive screw, unless otherwise specified.

The 4-20 mA sensors, the PCC421 and PCC423 series are custom-ordered to suit the user’s application.  The customer specifies if the 4-20 mA data will be output in terms of acceleration or electrically integrated to velocity within the sensor. Peak or root-mean-square (rms) detection are available. Customers can choose from four measurement ranges when ordering.
