The Commtest Spotcheck Vibration Meter provides a cost-effective introduction to vibration-based condition monitoring. It has a simple four-button user interface, a compact yet rugged IP64 certified case, and a long-life (>48 hour) rechargeable battery pack. Its automated ISO alarm features require no specialist user training or external software.

By comparing vibration velocity levels against international ISO standards, the Spotcheck device can automatically display simple, easy to understand machinery health alarms that quickly indicate the fitness of machinery to operate.

When measuring bearing vibrations, the device can be configured to display alarms that may indicate existing or approaching bearing failures or seizures. These alarms are generated by analyzing velocity or acceleration measurements at the higher frequencies typically associated with bearing defects (above 1 kHz).

In addition to its vibration measurement capabilities, the Spotcheck device includes an integrated non-contact IR thermal sensor and laser pointer. This sensor enables temperature measurements to be taken safely and accurately from distances of up to 2 meters (6.5 feet) away, locating potential mechanical problems before expensive failures occur.
