3-Axis USB Vibration/Acceleration Data Logger


3-Axis USB Vibration/Acceleration Data Logger

The #VB10 vibration/acceleration data logger is ideal for assessing the health and diagnosing performance problems of rotating machinery. Slight changes in the axial accelerations of a motor over time can reveal whether it is running efficiently, and may even indicate whether it may fail in the future.


Best For:



  • Three accelerometers precisely measure acceleration on the x, y and z axes
  • Stores up to 327,600 data points in flash memory
  • One button starts/stops data logging without a PC—eliminating the need to bring your PC to the job site
  • Plug-and-play USB 2.0 interface; no need for cables, cradles or docks
  • Mounting pedestal with magnets and three screw holes
  • The included Shock PC interface/analysis software can download recorded data or acquire real-time data or real-time frequency data
  • The Shock application is used to set the system clock, the operating mode (normal, time-triggered or motion measuring), the sampling rate and axial high/low alarm thresholds
  • Powerful analysis modes, including Fast Fourier Transform frequency conversion and time-domain analysis
  • One-click exporting of tabular data as a .txt file or graph to printer
  • Red and green LEDs indicate device status (recording, not recording, battery low, memory full)


  • Acceleration measurement range: -16g to 16g
  • Acceleration measurement accuracy/resolution: ±0.5g/0.0039g
