Rion Vibration Analysis Program SX-A1VA

This program adds vibration measurement functions to the RIONOTE Multifunction Measurement System.

All essential vibration measurement functions are provided, enabling equipment diagnosis and trend management for industrial machinery.
The program also supports detailed diagnosis including FFT analysis and envelope processing, and ISO absolute value evaluation can also be performed.
Because up to four accelerometers can be connected to the RIONOTE, simultaneous measurement in two horizontal directions and one vertical direction or other measurements of multiple planes can be easily realized.

Tri-axial Vibration Analysis Program







Vibration meter mode

  • Measurement simultaneously for vibration acceleration, velocity, and displacement
  • Auto store function continuously records vibration values and tacho data in 100 ms intervals
  • Calculation of average vibration quantity values for a specified measurement period (to facilitate reading of representative values for measurement data with considerable fluctuation)
  • Separate filter settings (HPF, LPF) for acceleration, velocity, and displacement are supported



Simple diagnosis

By periodically measuring the vibration magnitude and comparing the results to a reference value,
the equipment condition (normal or potential problem) can be diagnosed.


Detailed diagnosis (FFT analysis and envelope processing)

The FFT analysis function and envelope processing function (acceleration envelope processing) can be used to determine abnormal conditions and to assess failure stage and location.


Trend management (relative value evaluation)

SX-A1VA program can store the data tagged with information of the measurement point and can output the data all together for each measuring object. By using spreadsheet software such
as Excel enables trend management of the machinery condition. In order to assess changes in the vibration of rotating machinery or similar which can indicate problems and possible causes, it is necessary to effectively accumulate and manage measurement data. Reference values can then be determined based on these data for example to set caution and danger threshold values.

When a caution threshold is exceeded, monitoring should be strengthened, and when the danger threshold is reached, detailed diagnosis will normally be performed. With many common types of vibration acceleration, values that are about 2 to 3 times above normal are considered caution indicators and a further increase by a factor of 2 to 3 will indicate a danger state. For a given piece of machinery, vibration measurement location, measurement direction, and measurement period are determined, and a graph in which measured values are entered in a time series is created (trend management graph).
