Balancing and phase measurement requires a data collector or vibration analyzer capable of interfacing with the CSI 555. You must set up the vibration analyzer to obtain and record the phase information supplied by the CSI 555 and the reference sensor.
- Set the analyzer to accept an external tachometer trigger signal. The CSI 555 provides this signal.
- Set the frequency range for order analysis (10 orders and full scale is recommended). This ensures the 1X running speed is centered in the 1X (first order) filter, which is important for repeatable phase measurements.
- Set the analyzer to display averaged spectrum and phase data (4 or 8 averages).
- Set the sensor power to On.
