The next-generation VCM-3 condition-monitoring platform (photo) is designed to increase the uptime and reduce overall lifecycle costs of pumps, fans, motors, gearboxes and many other types of machines, while increasing reliability. The field-proven VCM-3 is a 12-channel data-acquisition hub for monitoring auxiliary machines, balance-of-plant (BOP) non-critical machines and other assets in industries where cost-effective condition monitoring is required without machine protection. It features enhanced condition-monitoring measurement techniques, easy system integration, built-in cybersecurity and simple installation. The platform has been designed for scalability, so users can get started quickly with the basic model. — Brüel & Kjær Vibro GmbH, Darmstadt, Germany
