The Fmax and Fmin values set the maximum and minimum frequency limits for your measurements. Equipment with high operating speeds requires a higher Fmax to capture all crucial information. The Fmin (low cutoff) removes very low frequency integration noise from the overall measurement and is normally set at 2 Hz. You can set Fmin to 0, but the minimum value is the second line in the spectrum, where the Fmin value is equal to 2x line resolution.
|Fingered elements such as gear teeth, fan blades, pump vanes, and bearing elements||(3 x the number of fingers) x the operating speed|
|Non-fingered elements||10 x the operating speed|
|Coast up, coast down recordings||200 to 400 Hz (12,000-24,000 cpm)|
