Ace Controls Releases Version 2 of VibroChecker App

Ace Controls launched the first version of their iOS app, which is designed to help engineers to detect and accurately measure the vibrations and oscillations that occur with most machinery. In October 2014, they launched V 2.0.

The idea for this innovative app was born when Ace Controls’ design and development team realised that millions of engineers throughout the world own and use iPhones and other iOS devices. Recent iPhones, iPads and iPod touch devices have motion sensors built into them that had the potential to detect and measure most kinds of movement including machine and equipment vibrations. The app helps engineers and maintenance crews to isolate the cause of vibrations and address the issues.

For over 40 years, Ace Controls have been making and selling shock absorbers, industrial gas springs and damper systems. Over that time, the company has come up with many innovative physical products. Self-compensating shock absorbers and safety shock absorbers, which slow the velocity of moving loads, are two examples of the firms physical products.

The Vibro Checker app is the firm’s first app. However, it is not the first digital product the firm has launched.

CAD software called ACE CAD and an application simulation and computer selection service have both been available to customers for several years. These two digital products both help engineers to choose the right shock absorber or damper, from the ACE range, for individual projects.

Andre Wessling the Head of Global Marketing explained why the firm decided to update the app: “Ace Controls‘ Vibrochecker has proved incredibly popular and therefore it was a logical step to introduce a 2.0 update to keep up with demand and ensure the app catered for the needs of those downloading it daily.”

Included in the update is the ability to use the app in English, German and French. It is now possible to view the frequency and time graphs by turning the device through 90 degrees. A simple double tap now allows users to zoom in on the frequency graph. There’s a handy VibroChecker Video with case story on the website to show the app at work.

In addition, some of the settings for frequency and isolation efficiency have been changed. Users can now acquire and save all three accelerometer channels. Z is still allocated as channel, only one channel is plotted, however, the other two channels are included in the emailed and saved data.

Data saving will be up to 10 times faster. There is now an Excel template available for the data, which can be emailed and used later to further evaluate the results.

The firm has a reputation for listening to, and responding to, what their customers say. Therefore, this update is likely to be one of many as Ace Controls continue to strive to meet the changing needs of their customers.
