Analyzing the vibration signal from an accelerometer does not always require expensive or complicated analysis equipment. Built-in signal conditioning in the model MA15, MA321, MA322, and MAV52 accelerometers provides a 4-20mA output that is proportional to the RMS vibration value. This built-in signal conditioning means that with only a 4-20mA meter hooked up to your accelerometer you can be monitoring vibration, quickly, easily, and cheaply. The MA15 provides an output proportional to g vibration; the MA52 provides an output proportional to velocity vibration levels; and the MA321/322 provides g vibration down to zero hertz.
