Predictive Maintenance

  • Avoid unscheduled downtime
  • Optimize your repair schedule

Easy User Experience

  • Intuitive Windows interface
  • Full-color, touch-screen tablet

Twice the speed

  • Capture data twice as fast as other portable data collectors

Half the cost

  • 50% less than other 4 channel vibration data collectors

The vibration data collection system that revolutionized the predictive maintenance industry. VBOX3 is designed and built by engineers who regularly go into the field, collect vibration data, and understand what is required and desired in a condition-based monitoring solution. VBOX3 is designed to use a tri-axial vibration sensor that reduces the number of required data readings, while the intuitive interface provides extreme ease of use in database setup, data collection, analysis, and reporting.

VBOX3 runs on a rugged, Windows-based Toughpad tablet with a powerful Intel core i5vPro processor, 8 Gb of memory and 256 Gb solid state hard drive for rapid data collection and robust storage. VBOX3 features a full HD daylight visible multi-touch display. Durability characteristics include 4-foot drop resistance, all-weather dust and water resistant design, and 14 hours of continuous battery operation.
