1. GENERAL INFORMATION VM-5K

OVERVIEW
This is a highly reliable dual channel vibration monitor which monitors the shaft vibration of
rotating machinery.
Both a 10-slot rack mounting type and a single-unit independent type with a built-in power supply
are available so that it can respond flexibly to any system design from medium and small scale
rotating machinery to TSI. The monitor accepts signals detected by a transducer and displays them
on LCD.
It is also possible to set ALERT and DANGER alarm levels independently to detect machine
failures early on and inform the operator of these failures. It has a built-in self-diagnostic function
to inform the operator of input transducer failures, thereby preventing rotating machinery from
false shutdowns.

FEATURES

• Conforms to API St’d 670


• The monitor is available as a single unit independent type or a rack mounting type.
• Has a self-diagnostic function.
• Allows the operator to change each setting even in the field.
• Important information such as measured value, alarm set value and gap voltage is normally
displayed.
• Can isolate recorder output (option).
• LED display / contact output (DANGER / ALERT alarm).
• LED display / contact output (Input abnormal alarm).

• For alarm output wiring proceed as described in the instruction manuals for the
Mandatory VM-5G Single Unit Instrument Rack and VM-5Y Relay Module Unit used in
combination with this monitor unit.

• If megger test is made on the signal cable between transducer and monitor,
disconnect the cable from transducer and monitor.
Caution
Be sure to discharge the charged electric load before connecting the cable to the
transducer and monitor.
If this caution is not adhered to, the transducer and monitor could be damaged.

The automatic reset of all alarm output and alarm lamps can be set when the measured value or
input signal return to normal. In addition to above, the self-holding function can be also set for
each alarm output that holds the alarm condition until reset by setting RES key (inside of the front
panel) or by shorting between RES and COM terminal.

• Alarm reset is not possible until the output condition has been released.
• It is necessary to keep short circuit of the terminals for more than one (1) second to
operate these functions.
For details refer to 7. PARAMETER SETTING on page 19.
5-14 MONITOR OUTPUT
For vibration analysis, the vibration waveform signal is output from the BNC connector on the
monitor front panel and buffer output terminal on the rear panel (VM-5G Single Unit Instrument
Rack, VM-5Y Relay Module Unit) via a buffer amplifier.
5-15 RECORDER OUTPUT
An analog signal proportional to the vibration value is output from the terminal block.
5-16 SELF-DIAGNOSTIC FUNCTION
Any failures in the input system, such as sensor short-circuit or imperfect connections, are detected,
then an OK alarm is contact-output and (simultaneously), the OK lamp flashes.
5-17 POWER SEQUENCE
If mounted in the VM-5G Single Unit Instrument Rack, the secondary power supply can be cut off
by shorting between the P-S (POWER SEQUENCE) and COM terminals.
• This function can be used for pulling out or pulling in the monitor unit at the
emergency time. However, do not use for long time shorting of more than one (1)
Caution minute or turning on and off repeatedly.
Also, the parallel connection for the two (2) or more monitors should not be allowed.

5-18 TIMED OK CHANNEL DEFEAT


When on setting, when OK alarm is output, DANGER alarm, ALERT alarm, display, and recorder
output are disabled. DANGER ALERT, display and recorder output are not disabled, in case of
excessive signal input from sensor.
For details refer to 7. PARAMETER SETTING on page 19.
5-19 SUPPRESSION FUNCTION
This function can suppress the measurement around zero measurement point of the monitor by the
effect of the piping vibration or electric noise, etc. during the machine stopping.
The suppression can be set at 0.0 to 10.0 % (0.1% step) of the monitor range.
ex.) If the suppression is set at 2.0%, monitor measurement less than 2.0% shall be output as 0.0%.
