Crystal Lake, Illinois (PRWEB) April 10, 2014
General Kinematics, leader in vibratory bulk handling solutions, recently unveiled a new Portable Stroke / Vibration Monitor app that allows you to utilize a smart device to measure the performance of vibratory process equipment. The GK Stroke Monitor uses a bluetooth connected wireless accelerometer that monitors the motion of vibratory machinery. By simply attaching this magnetic bluetooth sensor to the vibratory machine, the wireless sensor sends operational and performance data instantly to a compatible device running the General Kinematics free Stroke Monitor app.
If the vibratory machine that is being monitored is operating out of spec, a performance log can be captured and instantly available to email directly to General Kinematics for analysis by their 24/7/365 Customer Service team.
The GK Portable Stroke Monitor app is compatible with both Apple and Android devices, and can be used on any brand and type of vibratory equipment. A full list of compatible devices are available on the companies website.
Thomas Musschoot, Vice President of North American Sales and Marketing, noted, "creating a monitor that utilizes an electronic tool that most people already have in their pocket just makes sense. The best part is it helps the user that does have an issue quickly diagnose the problem, which will help avoid costly downtime and maintenance."
