What is a Proximity Transducer System?


It is eddy current type non-contact displacement or vibration transducer, used for measuring Shaft Vibration, Axial Position, Rotating Speed and Phase Mark (Phase Reference) from small rotating machinery to large critical machinery such as turbines and compressors in plants.

The system provides an output voltage directly proportional to the distance between the probe tip and the observed conductive surface. It is capable of both static (position) and dynamic (vibration) measurements.

In addition, it is designed to meet the API (American Petroleum Institute) standard 670 requirements, often referred as machinery protection system for petroleum refineries and petrochemical plants around the world.
