How vibration sensors work in industrial settings

Vibration sensors in industrial settings are sophisticated devices comprising key components like accelerometers and DSP (Digital Signal Processing) processors. These components work together to accurately measure and analyse vibration frequencies in industrial motors.

We offer different types of sensors, such as the KPV100 and KPV200, each suited for specific requirements.

These variations ensure that our sensors can be integrated seamlessly into diverse operational frameworks, providing reliable and accurate vibrational data for preventive maintenance.

General information

The KPV100 and KPV200 sensors are designed for vibration measurement. The main components of both sensor types are an accelerometer for vibration measurement and a DSP processor for data processing.  An important difference between the two types is the communication output, as the KPV100 uses Bluetooth or Wi-Fi communication, while the KPV200 uses RS485 Modbus communication.


  • Wide frequency range – 0-1,600 Hz, 0-800 Hz, 0-400 Hz, 0-200 Hz, 0-100 Hz and 1-50 Hz.
  • 128 Bin FFT output.
  • Vibration range can be selected from ± 2 g to ± 16 g.
  • Measures in three directions, X, Y and Z.
  • Ambient temperature min./max.: -40/+85 °C.
  • Built-in intelligent alarm system.
  • Plug and play solution in a robust industrial design.

Choosing the right vibration sensor for your application

Selecting a vibration sensor for your application or industry is crucial for optimal performance.

Factors to consider include the frequency range needed to detect specific types of vibrations and the vibration range that the sensor can accurately measure.

Environmental conditions, such as temperature and humidity, also play a significant role in sensor selection. Our wireless and Wi-Fi-enabled sensors provides flexibility for different industrial environments.

At Hoyer, we assist our clients in choosing the most suitable sensor for their specific needs, ensuring effective vibration monitoring and maintenance.

Integrating vibration sensors with Hoyer motors

A seamless integration is of great importance when it comes to implementing vibration sensors in industrial settings. Our vibration sensors are designed for easy integration with our range of electric motors as well as other types of motors for industrial needs, offering a plug-and-play solution that simplifies installation and setup.

This approach allows for immediate monitoring and analysis of motor performance, enhancing predictive maintenance strategies. The pre-assembled solution on all standard Hoyer motors ensures compatibility and reduces the need for additional modifications or adjustments.

This integration not only streamlines the process but also maximises the efficiency and reliability of both the motor and the sensor, providing a comprehensive solution for vibration monitoring and maintenance.

The benefits of implementing vibration sensors

Implementing vibration sensors in industrial machinery offers numerous benefits.

These sensors enable the early detection of bearing failures, reducing the likelihood of unexpected downtime and costly repairs. With our Smart motors sensors, you can monitor the status of your electric motor by combining sensor technologies such as vibration sensors with data analysis.

Vibration sensors also measure application imbalance, contributing to more efficient operation and extended service life of equipment. Our sensors feature an intelligent alarm system that alerts operators to potential issues, enhancing safety and operational efficiency.

The robust design of Hoyer's vibration sensors ensures they can withstand harsh industrial environments, providing reliable performance over time.

Vibration sensors across industries: applications and case studies

Our vibration sensors find applications across a range of industries, demonstrating their versatility and effectiveness. In manufacturing, they monitor machinery for early signs of wear, while ensuring optimal performance and energy efficiency in HVAC systems. In automation, these sensors play a crucial role in maintaining the smooth operation of automated processes.

We have successfully implemented our vibration sensors in various settings, with case studies highlighting their impact in reducing maintenance costs and improving equipment longevity. These real-world examples underscore the value of our sensors in enhancing industrial operations.

Vibration sensors: what, how and why?

A vibration sensor is a sophisticated device engineered to measure and analyse vibrational energy within mechanical systems. These sensors, integral to modern industrial machinery, detect anomalies in vibration patterns, which can be indicative of potential mechanical issues.

Utilising components such as accelerometers and piezoelectric elements, vibration sensors convert mechanical vibrations into electrical signals. These signals are then processed and analysed to monitor the health and performance of machinery.

In professional settings, understanding the nuances of these sensors, from their sensitivity to their frequency response, is crucial for accurate diagnostics and maintenance. Vibration sensors play a pivotal role in predictive maintenance regimes, allowing for timely interventions that prevent costly downtime and extend the lifespan of industrial equipment.
