MAJOR’s FLEX-MAT Sensor
MAJOR, a Haver & Boecker company, Candiac, Quebec, displayed its FLEX-MAT Sensor at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020. The sensor, as demonstrated in the January Here’s How it Works feature, is a vibration data measurement tool that lets users review results and fine tune their screen machine without shutting down equipment. The app-controlled vibration analysis sensor enables users to measure and view vibration data.
The operator connects the sensor to the MAJOR app on their phone before placing the sensor on one corner of the machine. The user will continue to move the sensor to each corner of the machine until finished. Once the measurement process is completed, the information will be delivered to the phone in the time it takes to climb down from the machine.
Machine information is stored locally for ease of use and viewing in areas with cellular limitations. Once signal is available, the information uploads to MAJOR’s cloud service where it is viewable from a web browser. Historical equipment performance data is also viewable through the cloud.
The sensor measures g-force, stroke, rpm and orbit, including lateral movement. Producers can use the data to monitor and fine tune screen box performance as well as make parameter decisions with minimal guesswork.
The sensor kit arrives in professional casing and includes one sensor, instructions, a USB charging cable and instructions on how to download the MAJOR app. The app is available for iOS and Android phones.
