High-performance monitoring for your high-stakes equipment.

When your operations rely on critical mechanical equipment, any failure can have a catastrophic effect. A prolonged or even brief process interruption due to mechanical failure or unexpected repair can literally be the difference between profit and loss. Even a small issue can severely cripple or entirely halt production, which in many industries can exceed millions of dollars per day.

With this much at stake, the VBOX4 vibration data monitors provide predictive maintenance intelligence on your most vital production assets. Developed by engineers with over 35 years of predictive maintenance experience, they understand the needs, challenges, and nuances of high-stakes condition monitoring and are constantly working to enhance the accuracy, speed, and reliability of our data collection and analysis tools.
