The IRD Balancing Model 258 is part of the IRD Balancing line of analysis and balancing products. The 258V is a flexible instrument platform designed to be a single tool for a range of maintenance, inspection, service, and diagnostic applications. The functionality of the Model 258V can be expanded by adding optional Balancing and Bump Test software modules.
The Model 258V is a simple, easy to use vibration analysis instrument with an intuitive user-friendly interface that displays spectrum and phase information in an easy to understand format. The Model 258V makes it quick and simple for an operator to assess the motion between two positions by providing the phase angle between the vibration signals.
The Model 258V's high level of performance, intuitive software and ruggedness make it the ideal vibration analysis tool operations where both on site and shop based analysis and maintenance will be performed.
The Model 258V enables non-experts to carry out checks for common machine faults, including:
Unbalance - Increase machinery and bearing life and improve productivity by identifying system unbalance.
Defective Bearings - Detect defective rolling element bearings.
Bent shaft - Increase machinery efficiency by identifying problems causing high axial vibration.
Misalignment - Identify coupling problems and associated axial vibration caused by shaft misalignment.
The Model 258B is a simple, easy to use instrument with an intuitive user interface that makes it ideal for expert and non-expert users alike. The 258B is an adaptable instrument system, with individual modules for FFT Vibration Analysis and Balancing applications. This flexibility allows users to perform multiple tasks with a single tool. There is the option to add a Bump Test firmware module for increased productivity. These features make the Model 258B an excellent choice for machinery diagnostics or as a field service tool.
The Model 258B package includes the FFT Vibration Analysis and Balancing modules, 2 accelerometers, laser speed sensor kit, precision scale and all other accessories necessary to use the 258B immediately.
The Model 258B's high level of performance, intuitive software and ruggedness make it the ideal analysis tool and balancing instrument for operations where both on site and shop based analysis and maintenance will be performed.
