Protection & Monitoring Systems

Monitoring and Protection Systems

Rotating assemblies are often strategic within a production cycle. A sudden breakage can immediately stop production with very heavy economic damage. 

In order to maintain them before they are damaged, it is essential that they are kept under control. The continuous monitoring of the vibration level is normally the parameter used to verify the correct operation of the unit. Increased vibration levels are a symptom of a problem that needs to be kept under control and diagnosed in good time.
The reference values of the maximum vibration tolerability thresholds can be easily obtained from
ISO 2372 and ISO 10816 according to the type of machine.


The VM600 is one of the most advanced systems for vibration protection of critical machinery. 

Produced by Meggitt, it has now become a European standard for power generation plants (steam and gas turbines). The system consists of a rack in which the protection and monitoring cards are housed.
The MPC4, in particular, is the universal programmable protection board, which guarantees a level of modularity previously unimaginable, as it can directly manage - both as hardware compatibility and software functionality, sensors in charge, with built-in electronics, proximity sensors, 4-40 mA sensors, etc., as well as two tachometric sensors.

To complete the system, there are additional relays cards, cards for "slow" measurements (temperatures, pressures, etc.), cards for dynamic measurement and Condition Monitoring, and a CPU card, which allows local control without computer and connection, via network or modem to remote control systems.
Different software modules, ranging from a simple application for the configuration of the protection system, to advanced Performance Monitoring and Plant Usage Optimization applications, complete the package of the enormous potential of the system.


The VibroSight is a diagnostic and monitoring software for all rotating parts.

Designed to work with VM600 XMx16 boards and VibroSmart monitoring system devices. Allows operators to:

  • Avoid breakdowns
  • Optimise generator and turbine efficiency
  • Prevent unplanned interruptions
  • Support predictive maintenance programs.

Thanks to the automatic data acquisition and storage, with the Vision you have the possibility to visualize for each single sensor the available trends.
With the use of Mimic the operator can configure a display page at will to have the situation always under control.


VibroSmart is the monitoring system that completes the VM600 line.

The VibroSmart allows you to monitor more resources, on more plants economically and without compromising performance.
This product gives you the ability to monitor the operation of:

  • Hydroelectric Turbines
  • Gas Turbines
  • Steam turbines
  • Wind turbines
  • Engines
  • Compressors
  • Steel rollers
  • Generators
  • Pumps
  • Cooling towers and heat exchanger fans
  • Gearboxes
  • Alternative pumps etc.

The VibroSmart product family is designed to work in critical industrial conditions including ATEX Zone II and up to 70°C.
Designed to make the activities of operators and maintenance personnel intuitive.
Its certifications allow it to be mounted on simple DIN rails on a skid near the machine, eliminating the costs associated with electrical panels and cables.
The VibroSmart input channels are easily configurable via software and thanks to its modular system, it will be possible to expand the channels during the life of the system.
All modules can be interconnected to create Trip logics and alarms and via Ethernet cable connect to the VibroSight server to display live values and historical trends.

CVS 100 Electronic vibration switch 

Electronic vibration switch, low cost, with speed control, with a trip threshold. Integrated sensor, aluminium housing (stainless steel option). Available in standard or intrinsically safe version.

PT500 Electromechanical vibration switch

The PT500 electromechanical vibration switch is an economical solution for the protection of rotating and auxiliary machines. The PT500 uses an inertial mechanism that makes a micro-switch contact when the vibration exceeds the set point.
