B&K 2250 : Bruel & Kjaer Vibration Analyser £ 35 a day *
Bruel & Kjaer Vibration Meter

The B&K 2250 Sound Analyser also measures Vibration if you add an accelerometer set.

The 2250 hand held meter has built-in engineering units so you can read directly in vibration units.
All our 2250s also include the BZ 7223 Frequency Software for vibration analysis in real time.
For narrow band vibration analysis see the BZ 7230 FFT version detailed below.
Vibration monitoring is also included using the BZ 7226 Recording/Signal Capture feature to an SD Card.
Delivered with a B&K 4370 Accelerometer Set, or a Metra KS76 unless you select an alternative from the same list.
We recommend you add a B&K 4294 Vibration Calibrator

B&K 2250 : Bruel & Kjaer Vibration Analyser with FFT option £ 42 a day *
Bruel & Kjaer Vibration Analyser

Vibration analysis based on the FFT - Fast Fourier Transform algorithm is the tool of choice for measurement and diagnostics of machinery noise and vibration.

The 2250 vibration analyser with the BZ 7230 FFT software has many narrow band features :-

Real time operation [no loss of data] up to 20 kHz.
100 up to 6400 lines giving a resolution down to 16 mHz
Linear and Exponential Averaging
Signal capture and recording
Engineering units, SI metric and UK imperial units
Acceleration, Velocity, Displacement .......

Plus Max hold, spectrum overlay, zoom, tachometer function, trigger, transient and continuous signals, RMS, PWR, PSD, ESD, Peak, P-P ...... etc., software also included for analysis, reporting and downloading to a PC.

Delivered with a B&K 4370 Accelerometer Set, or a Metra KS76 unless you select an alternative from the same list.

We recommend you add a B&K 4294 Vibration Calibrator, it provides a stable acceleration of 10 m/s2 at 159 Hz.
