Set up the equipment speed in Balance


Speed is expressed in revolutions per minute (RPM). Use speed as a reference for future setup or as the baseline speed for applying the delta RPM to determine valid data.

This is an optional setting. The analyzer does not use speed to calculate the balance correction. In Basic mode, the analyzer collects data at one speed with applying an RPM range to verify valid data.

Note: This is available only in Advanced Balance mode.


  1. From the Balance main menu, press F3 Job Setup > F11 Speed Setup.
  2. Set the following options as necessary.
    Option Description
    F3 Delta RPM Enter a number between 0 and 500 to set the valid running speed range for all speeds. Enter 0 to disable this option. For example, if you enter the equipment speed of 1,800 RPM and a Delta RPM of 50, the valid range for the running speed is between 1,750 and 1,850 RPM. When the speed is outside the range, the analyzer displays the RPM, but not the amplitude and phase.

    The invalid readings are not used to compute the averaged magnitude and phase readings during data collection. The default is 0.

    F4 Enter Speed #1 Enter a number between 0 and 100,000 for the equipment speed. If you enter 0, “Unknown” displays for the speed.
    Note: Additional keys appear based on the number of speeds you defined in F9 Number of Speeds. The default is Unknown.
    F9 Number of Speeds Enter up to six equipment speeds. The default is 1.
    Note: The number of measurement points multiplied by the number of measurement speeds cannot exceed 24.
  3. Press Enter.
