Diagnostic Electronics for Vibration Sensors

The Nexus ifm VSE Gateway allows for real-time vibration monitoring of data from the ifm VSE diagnostic device series to be made available via a variety of standard industrial data protocols and/or interfaces. The Gateway connects to up to 10 VSE devices via Ethernet and data is made available via a variety of standard industrial data protocols and/or interfaces such as MODBUS TCP/RTU and OPC Data Access (DA). Alternatively, a custom protocol interface can be cost-effectively developed if required.

Simple integration with Nexus Data Suite

The ifm VSE Gateway can be integrated with The Nexus Suite of products using one of the Ethernet connections.

This exposes the diagnostic data through multiple interfaces simultaneously, sending alarms and logging data for historical purposes.
