TurboStar Turbomachinery Vibration Analyzer

The TurboStar Turbomachinery Vibration Analyzer was designed with a deep understanding of your needs in turbomachinery vibration analysis and predictive maintenance.
• Available in 14-, 22-, or 30-channel systems, based on your measurement requirements
• Powerful software displays many important indicators, including Bode plot, polar plot, orbit, filtered orbit, shaft centerline, and more
• Providing necessary information to engineers who conduct analysis perform predictive maintenance on turbomachinery
• Simple yet powerful user interface makes complicated measurement setups easy and fast.

Powered by SQL Database

TurboStar Turbomachinery Vibration Analyzer uses SQL (Structured Query Language) database for storing measured data. Each data point is automatically saved to the database once measured. This prevents any loss of data due to accidental system shut down. TurboStar’s SQL database supports long monitoring intervals and large data sizes without slowing down the system performance.

Up to 2 Tacho Signal Inputs

TurboStar Turbomachinery Vibration Analyzer allows you to connect  two independent tachometer signals at the same time. Based on the two different tacho signals, TurboStar can conduct two parallel calculations of order tracking and generate two sets of measured data, at the same time. This feature is especially useful when you need to measure two machines before and after their shafts are coupled.

IEPE Power and Protection

TurboStar Turbomachinery Vibration Analyzer provides IEPE power directly to your sensors from each input channel. IEPE power is enabled from both the software and the IEPE power switch on the instrument. This feature provides additional protection and prevents the risk of tripping your protection system by accident.

Accurate Measured Data

TurboStar Turbomachinery Vibration Analyzer is a field-proven system providing accurately measured data. It adopts the algorithm of “high-spot absolute phase” for turbomachinery vibration analysis, which are identical with the results of other main products in this market. The accuracy of phase measurement is critical for engineers who conduct rotor balancing in the field.
