Bruel & Kjaer 2511 Specifications


 
Bruel & Kjaer 2511 Vibration Meter
 

The B&K 2511 has been withdrawn from hire, the following information is for reference purposes only.

 
B&K 2511 : Portable Vibration Meter  
 

Recommended Transducer :

Bruel & Kjaer 4370 piezoelectric accelerometer with a nominal sensitivity of 10 pC/ms-2 ~ 100 pC/g
 

Measurement Ranges :

using the recommended B&K 4370 accelerometer.
Measurement LLF * Metric Ranges Imperial Ranges
Acceleration : 0.3 Hz 0.002 - 100 ms-2 0.0002 - 10 g
Velocity :   3 Hz 0.02 - 1000 mm/s 0.001 - 100 in/s
Displacement : 10 Hz 0.0003 - 10 mm 0.00002 - 1 in
 
The above figures are for wide band measurements.
The minimum levels are RMS and are 6 dB (2 x) above the wide band instrument RMS noise level.
* LLF = Lower Limiting Frequency
If the next lower low frequency setting is selected, then the minimum limit for velocity measurements is a factor of 3 to 4 higher.
The next lower low frequency for displacement settings will increase the minimum limit by 10 times.
 

Accuracy :

including accelerometer is ± 5 % absolute overall within linear ranges.
