Vibration Sensors Monitor IIoT Machinery

VocalZoom launches its next-gen predictive maintenance sensors for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The sensors measure the vibrations emitted by industrial machinery to predict and prevent mechanical failures before they occur. Because they can monitor machine health without touching the equipment, they can cover a greater array of equipment than traditional predictive maintenance solutions, without the factory downtime and deployment costs associated with most sensors.

Digi IX20 Secure LTE Router Available for Immediate Shipment from Digi-Key

The IX20 rugged, secure LTE router is a great choice for applications from basic connectivity to industrial-class and security solutions. Its high-performance architecture gives primary and backup WWAN over software selectable multi-carrier LTE.

According to the company, vibration sensing is the most accurate way to identify anomalies in a machine’s health and detect issues related to its condition and performance. VocalZoom’s patented vibration sensors use a self-mixing-laser-diode technology to measure the velocity, distance and vibrations of a machine. The sensors measure 15 mm x 6 mm x 3 mm, enabling them to fit practically any configuration and geometry, and they operate at a distance up to 3 meters away from the machine they are monitoring.


The sensors are available for purchase now. For more details, visit VocalZoom.
