FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich.—ACE Controls, a specialist in industrial damping technology, has introduced a new app that is said to turn iPhones and iPads into professional vibration and impact measuring devices, providing users with a high-performance, lightweight alternative to more costly systems.
ACE’s VibroChecker PRO native iOS app is an upgraded version of its original VibroChecker app, which uses the acceleration sensors, gyroscopes, and microphones integrated in the iPhone and iPad to measure vibrations on machines and components within a frequency range of up to 50 Hz. Upgrading to the new ‘PRO’ version of the app increases the range up to 8,000Hz. The user simply has to connect an external USB sensor (available from a third party) to the iOS device via the lightning port and an adaptor. Measurement results can be saved or emailed directly to Ace Controls.
