REED SD-8205 SD Series Vibration Meter, Datalogger


This SD series datalogging vibration meter measures velocity and acceleration to determine vibration levels in machinery. The SD-8205 meets ISO1954 standards and features RMS, Peak hold, and Max/Min functions. Using a SD card (max 16Gb), a user can select a desired sampling rate and quickly generate an Excel file on a SD card without the use of software. Optional accessories include a tripod and AC adapter for continuous long-term monitoring. Optional PC software also allows a user to track live measurements.
