Misalignment, Looseness, Imbalance, Structural Issues

What's New?

Enhanced Battery Life of 5+ Years

Stronger Magnetic Fitting

Increased Accuracy for Data Sampling

Our new sensor expands upon our two variants: Structure and Bearing. Tau Structure monitors and compares the machinery's stroke length, g-force, deflection and uptime. Tau Bearing detects issues within the machine's rotating elements, which may lead to misalignment, looseness, imbalance and friction.

With the introduction of this enhanced sensor, Sensoteq reinforces its commitment to advancing industrial maintenance practices. The expanded capabilities of Tau E showcase Sensoteq's dedication to providing state-of-the-art solutions that will redefine precision monitoring. As industries worldwide navigate the challenges of maintaining high-performance machinery, Sensoteq's latest sensor is helping to guide the mining and aggregate industry toward a future where maintenance is not just a reaction but a calculated, proactive strategy.

Sensoteq Tau E data is compatible with Sensoteq Analytix, our streamlined web interface displaying real-time performance data for effortless, remote visualisation. Early detection of issues such as imbalance, bearing wear, and misalignment helps to prevent unexpected downtime, reduces maintenance costs, and ensures consistent product quality.

Analyse stroke, angle and deflection data from Tau Structure with features like the Advanced Waveform Analysis. Assess full spectrum and waveform analysis, tracking the harmonic cursor, bearing fault frequencies, and side band amplitudes from Tau Bearing sensors to compliment machine maintenance strategies.
