VP5 Portable data collector/ analyzer
VP5 is a portable 4 channel data collector/ Analyzer built for advanced machinery condition monitoring and vibration root cause analysis.
- IP65 rated housing
- CE mark
- IEC 60068-2-34 vibration test
- IEC 60068-2-27 shock test
Simultaneous triaxial measurements for data collection
- VP5 measures triaxial vibration signals, reducing man hours in the field.
VP5's balancing module supports up to 4 plane balancing.
For single or dual plane balncing, you can choose up to 4 measurement points for minimizing vibration levels in different directions and locations.
VP5's balancing module can record the 1X trace during a coast-down process.
With this information you can locate the heavy spot of your rotor right after the initial vibration measurement, saving balancing time and increase safety.
Bump Test and ODS test modulesInvestigate structural resonance with optional Bump Test module.
Complete modal testing is possible by combining with 3rd party software, like ME'Scope.
The recorder program directly records raw time data to the built-in compact flash card. Post processing of Raw Data Recorder files such as FFT, Order Tracking or Octave Analysis from the playback mode can be done with Novian Computer based software.
The computed order tracking program is designed to analyze the sound or vibration signals of a varying speed machines. Typical applications for this software module are NVH (Noise, Vibration, Harshness) testing of vehicles or advanced vibration analysis of turbine machines.

VP5 is a 4 channel portable data collector and vibration analyzer powered by Microsoft Windows CE and state-of-the-art DSP technology. The VP5's ruggedized housing design is made from a high tech dual material injection process, consisting of hard ABS plastic (black) and soft TPR plastic (orange). The VP5 also has rubber seals for protection when in extreme weather conditions and harsh environments. Equipped with VGA resolution color touch screen, VP5 brings you a brand new experience with in-field analyzers.

Route Based Data Collector
Combined with the powerful computer software iSee, the VP5 is your best choice for route-based data collection in the field. The VP5 supports simultaneous tri-axial measurement (x,y,z axes), saving many work hours in the field. The VP5 measures bearing fault signal via true peak detection on a high-pass filtered time waveform. This field-proven technology provides sensitive and accurate readings from the early stage of bearing damage and allows the user to track the bearing damage development from the trending analysis feature of iSee PC software.
Envelope spectrum measurement is a standard feature for confirming bearing failure. Temperature and other process parameter measurements are also supported in the data collector program.
Bump Test module:
VP5’s powerful Bump Test module allows you to conduct a bump test on a structure and measure its frequency response frequency (FRF), coherence, and cross power spectrum functions. This useful software module helps with the investigation of the resonance of a machine, conduct structural reinforcement and reduce the vibration level of a machine running at its resonance zone. The test data can be imported to a 3rd party software, such as ME’Scope, for further modal analysis to derive its modal shapes, natural frequencies and damping values.
Note: VP5's bump test features are very similar to impaq Elite's. See demonstration video above.
ODS (Operational Deflection Shape) Test module:
VP5’s ODS module allows you to conduct a measurement on a running machine and measure its FRF, coherence, and cross power spectrum functions. With the reference vibration sensor connected to channel 1 and a triaxial vibration sensor connected to channel 2, 3 and 4, the VP5 saves your time for the measuring tasks in the field via real-time four channel measurements. By importing the test data to a 3rd party software, like ME’Scope, you may derive the Operational Deflection Shapes of your machines easily. The ODS test helps to find out how the structure deflects at certain running speeds, providing useful information for structural reinforcement.
Computed Order Tracking module (optional)
The computed order tracking program is designed to analyze the sound or vibration signals of a varying speed machines. Typical applications for this software module are NVH (Noise, Vibration, Harshness) testing of vehicles or advanced vibration analysis of turbine machines. Calculation of the order spectrum, order traces, filtered or unfiltered orbits, gap reading and centerline of a shaft accurately during a start-up or coast-down process. The impaq Elite’s order tracking algorithm performs digital re-sampling of the measured signal for ensuring data accuracy. The order spectrum data can be displayed on a waterfall plot or intensity map. Cut a slice or a trace of data from the waterfall plot and then examine the individual traces. As shown in the figure below, the user can enter geometric position(s) of the vibration sensors to create a plot to display orbit and shaft centerline motion, which relates to the realistic behavior of a turbine machine.
Raw Data Recorder module (optional)
The recorder program directly records raw time data to the built-in compact flash card. For example, a 1 gigabyte file will contain approximately three hours of continuous data with four channels recording at 2 kHz bandwidth. Post processing of Raw Data Recorder files such as FFT, Order Tracking or Octave Analysis from the playback mode can be done with Novian Computer based software.
Rotor Balancing module (optional):
The Impaq Elite with the (optional) balancing software package can balance your rotating machines in the field with industry leading balancing techniques like; single plane, dual plane, overhung dual plane, 3 plane, 4 plane and 3 weights balancing. This advanced balancing software makes it very simple to balance machines in-field with a very high level of accuracy. Now with multiple-point balancing, vibration in BOTH horizontal and vertical directions are minimized at the same time. By enabling coast-down measurements for 1X vibration, the heavy spot is identified correctly with only one measurement, saving you time, money and increasing safety. This technique prevents the user from danger by putting the trial weights in the wrong place and shortens the time required to balance.
