Vibration sensor buffers a piezoelectric transducer. As the transducer is displaced from the mechanical neutral axis, bending creates strain within the piezoelectric element and generates voltages. Vibration analysis is used as a tool to determine a machine’s condition and the specific cause and location of problems, expediting repairs and minimizing costs. Machinery monitoring programs record a machine’s vibration history. Monitoring vibration levels over time allows prediction of problems before serious damage can occur. The vibration is preventing a smooth flow of energy. The flow is interrupted, hence the noise and the shake.
