TurboStar is built around your need of monitoring and analyzing the health condition of your turbomachines.  Choose either 14, 22 or 30 channel systems based on your measurement requirements.  

Powered by SQL database
TurboStar uses SQL database for storing measured data.  During a measurement, each measured data is automatically saved to the database once measured. This prevents any loss of data due to accidental system shut down.
Classic user interface is simple yet powerful making complicated measurement setups easy and fast.
TurboStars’powerful software measures many important functions, such as Bode plot, polar plot, orbit, filtered orbit and the shaft centerline (and more), providing necessary information to engineers who conduct analysis on the machines.
Support up to two tacho signal inputs
TurboStar allows you to connect up to two independent tacho signals at the same time.  Based on the two different tacho signals, TurboStar can conduct two parallel calculations of order tracking and generate two sets of measured data at the same time.  This feature is very useful when you need to measure two machines before and after their shafts are coupled. 
Accurate measured data
TurboStar is a field proven system providing accurately measured data.  It adopts the algorithm of “high-spot absolute phase” for measuring vibration phases, which are identical with the results of other main products in this market.  The accuracy of phase measurement is very important for engineers who conduct rotor balancing in the field.

Powered by SQL database (Structured Query Language)
TurboStar uses SQL database for storing measured data.  During a measurement, each measured data is automatically saved to the database once measured. This prevents any loss of data due to accidental system shut down.  Turbostar and SQL database support long time and large data sizes without slowing down system performance.

Support up to two tacho signal inputs
TurboStar allows you to connect up to two independent tacho signals at the same time.  Based on the two different tacho signals, TurboStar can conduct two parallel calculations of order tracking and generate two sets of measured data at the same time.  This feature is very useful when you need to measure two machines before and after their shafts are coupled.
 
IEPE power and protection
TurboStar provides IEPE power directly to your sensors from each input channel.  To turn on the IEPE power, the user is required to enable IEPE power from both software and the IEPE power switch on the instrument.  This feature provides additional protection and prevents the risk of tripping your protection system by accident.
