CTC offers a complete line of proximity probe systems designed, built, and tested to endure prolonged use in the harshest industrial environments. PRO Line Proximity Probe Systems are available in FFvTM 5 mm, 8 mm, 11 mm, and 25 mm systems. The variety of probe sizes offered allows for accurate and precise displacement measurements as well as shaft speed/phase analysis. Complete PRO Line Proximity Probe Systems are compatible with all standard condition monitoring software, including Bently Nevada® software.
8 mm Probe Tip
For displacement gaps of 10-90 mils
-200 mV/mil (7.87 V/mm)
11 mm Probe Tip
For displacement gaps of 20-180 mils
-100 mV/mil (-3.94 V/mm)
25 mm Probe Tip
For displacement gaps of 25-525 mils
-20 mV/mil (-7.87 V/mm)
FFvTM 5 mm Probe Tip
For displacement gaps of 10-70 mils
-200 mV/mil (-7.87 V/mm)
Note - FFvTM 5 mm probes may be used for any applications within their linear range when clearance is an issue. They are the only probes we recommend for shafts with a diameter less than 2 inches. They are also used for many general purpose applications for larger shafts.
Standard FEP Jacket or Armor Jacket available
Required for hazardous applications
Provide an added layer of durability for the connection between your probe and extension cable
Standard internal and external brackets and bushings as well as external housing for "reverse mount" probe systems available
The voltage drive has a dynamic voltage output that is compatible with industry-standard continuous vibration monitoring systems and is the format specified in API Standard 670. The dynamic voltage output is proportional to the DC gap between the target material and probe tip.
4-20 mA DRIVERS:
4-20 mA Drivers Proportional to DC Gap:
Probe showing proportional output for the 4-20 mA signals. With shaft surface at 50 mils, 4-20 output is 12 mA. If the gap increases to 70 mils, 4-20 output will be 16 mA.
*Please note: The numbers referenced above are for use with an 8 mm probe.
Radial Application Drivers:
In radial applications, the probe drivers select the average shaft surface distance and the 4-20 is proportional to the overall peak to peak vibration in mils around the average surface of the shaft.
Axial Application Drivers:
In the thrust position the probes auto range to the face of the shaft or thrust collar, and the 4-20 is proportional to the positive or negative vibration away or toward the probe, as shown.
