TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR EQUIPMENT
With GK Vibratory Control Packages.
Single Channel Monitoring
The Single Channel Stroke Monitor receives the analog signal from the Vibration Transmitter. The Stroke Monitor displays the stroke continuously, and monitors the stroke for under or over limits.
If either of the limits are exceeded for an adjustable time period, then the Stroke Monitor will indicate an alarm. The alarms can be tied to existing control equipment and can be reset locally or by remote signals.
MULTI-STROKE™ MULTIPLE CHANNEL (1- 4) MONITORING
The Multi-Stroke Multiple Channel Monitor works in the same method as GK’s Single Stroke Monitor. The difference is that the input and output capabilities are expanded to allow up to four (4) channels of Stroke to be monitored continuously.
Units can be set to monitor different masses, multiple machines, or any combination in between. Multi-Stroke systems can be supplied with new accelerometers or can be adapted to accelerometers located on existing equipment.
PORTABLE STROKE MONITOR
Weighing in at only 3.7 pounds, General Kinematics stroke monitor works great to quickly test displacement on a single unit or for an entire plant-wide inspection. The monitors compact size can easily be held or carried by its handle, and is powered by three 9-volt batteries (included) to provide a monitor that can go anywhere.
The stroke monitor offers versatility in a portable package. The factory default settings are for displacement at a 0-2 inch range but can be recalibrated at time of order for velocity or acceleration readings and at different ranges for more accuracy. The unit can also be modified in the field by following the simple procedure found in the user manual.
The stroke monitor comes with two types of accelerometer connections. The BNC connection is used with the magnetic accelerometer that is provided with the unit. The second connection is for use with GKCs industrial mount accelerometers (P/N 10-07-300-01) that are permanently mounted to the vibratory equipment.
The easy-to-read display consists of large 0.37″ LED digits. The LEDs are bright red and can be seen in the darkest of environments. The magnetic accelerometer that is provided is as rugged as the portable monitor itself. The strong magnet will provide a good connection to your vibratory equipment to ensure accurate readings while the accelerometer cable is held tight with a threaded connection to the accelerometer body.
The Velocitrol is a complete system used to detect, display and control the velocity of vibratory equipment. This system consists of an industrial accelerometer, a pair of Vibration Transmitters, and the computer based display and control unit.
The Velocitrol is a PLC based controller that receives signals from two Vibration Transmitters. The Velocitrol displays the current velocity and adjusts a 4-20mA signal to a variable frequency drive to maintain a constant velocity.
The Velocitrol is capable of alternating between two velocity setpoints, which can be triggered by adjustable internal timers or by an external dry contact closure. The Velocitrol displays the stroke continuously, and monitors the stroke for under or over limits.
If either of the limits are exceeded for an adjustable time period, then the Stroke Monitor will indicate an Alarm. The Alarms can be tied to existing control equipment by the dry contact relays. All set points can be adjusted using the operator interface on the front of the Velocitrol.
V2 VARIABLE VECTOR DRIVE
Designed to work with brute force / direct drive vibratory equipment with multiple in-line motors, the V2™ Variable Vector control system allows users to easily adjust the retention time or conveying speed by varying the vibratory action of the vibrating unit.
General Kinematics V2 variable vector control allows you to adjust material retention time with the push of a button. The easy to operate control system of the V2 utilizes vector based measurement to monitor and maintain the proper conveying angle for your process, as well as the ability to adjust travel speed to optimize material retention time.
