GK’s New Accelerometer and How it Can Improve Your Processes

 by General Kinematics,

In heavy-duty industrial settings, even a small inefficiency can cost big. How can you know if you’re getting the most out of your machinery? The key lies in the vibrations. Accelerometers measure your equipment’s vibratory performance to help ensure proper operation.

How it Works:

If you’re in the market for a top-of-the-line accelerometer, look no further. General Kinematics’ new wireless Bluetooth accelerometer is accurate, lightweight and easy to use. Simply connect the accelerometer to GK’s smartphone app and you’re all set to gauge vibration on even the most powerful machines.

The GK Bluetooth accelerometer works with GK’s portable stroke monitor app to analyze your machinery’s performance. It does this by measuring stroke, the reciprocating motion of the machinery’s engine. Any issues are logged and instantly reported to General Kinematics for expert scrutiny by GK’s round-the-clock customer support team. The GK portable stroke monitor app also monitors temperature and RPM and keeps you up to date on GK news. The app runs on Apple and Android devices and measures stroke for all types of vibratory machinery.

Each GK Accelerometer Comes With:

  • General Kinematics Bluetooth accelerometer
  • Easy to carry case
  • USB charging cord
  • Instruction manual
  • Magnetic technology to handle heavy-duty machinery
  • Optional infrared laser technology for even greater accuracy
