The vb8™ vibration data logger / analyser is a uniquely sophisticated and feature-packed instrument, yet it remains intuitive in operation and flexible enough to suit every level of vibration analyst, from novice through to expert.

The SCOUT140-Ex and vb8 Vibration Analysers provide the complete Vibration Analysis Package - Four-channel portable vibration analyser with balancing. These are sophisticated, feature-packed instruments that remain intuitive in operation and flexible enough to suit every level of vibration analysis, from novice through to expert. The SCOUT140-Ex is certified for an ATEX Zone 2 hazardous rating, whereas the vb8 is rated for CSA Class 1, Division 2.

The included Ascent® software contains the collective experience of over 25 years of expert in-depth machine fault analysis.

1. Users with no prior experience or without previously recorded vibration history can now establish a measurement program utilising proven baseline values from ISO standards and "The Proven Method" from Technical Associates.

2. Experienced users can now generate meaningful spectral alarm bands automatically rather than just relying on basic overall alarms or spectral band guesswork.

3. Veteran analysts can now objectively evaluate and compare their findings against a time-tested and proven historical foundation.
