Acquiring vibration data is only part of the challenge of vibration measurement; the other part is the analysis of the data acquired. It’s important to understand the types of waveforms associated with vibration analysis, the important differences between them and when it is appropriate to use each type of vibration analysis tool. Here’s a quick overview of some of the basics.
This blog will discuss and compare several different ways to analyze your vibration data. And for a deeper dive, read our handbook on Vibration Measurements.
