Upgraded external case offers a thicker shell to resist to impact.

Meggitt introduces three new triaxial products for permanent and handheld vibration monitoring applications. Wilcoxon triaxial sensors, cables and connection boxes are suited for most industrial rotating equipment, including cooling tower fans, blowers, pumps, compressors, chillers, gearboxes, mixers and motors.

Meggitt’s model 993B-7-M12 is the latest addition to the Wilcoxon Research three axis series and features a versatile M12 connector. An upgraded external case offers a thicker shell to resist impact. Designed for both route based and permanent mount applications, the triaxial accelerometer hosts three general purpose 100 mV/g vibration sensors with ±10% sensitivity tolerance.

For permanent mounting applications, a captive mounting screw allows the sensor to be mounted in the most convenient direction for cable placement. Individual channel amplifiers reduce the influence of out of band signals and minimize sensor overload. Reverse wire protection also comes standard.
