Do any of you have direct experience with these?

Yes, worked fine if you could communicate with it. It only collected data if the speed from flux and vibe gave the same result and that in some cases was a hit and miss. Good bearing detection when working very similar to the 2120 that was about the same in time. I have one dismantled on the wall over my desk.

You worry me OLi, LOL having something like that in bits above your desk. More importantly I think I am on the spectrum as well because I remember bearing numbers for many of the paper machines I deal with and have dealt with over past 28 yrs..  Felt rolls 223** etc etc 22312 in most cases (in my presence) but the same just go up in size as deckle widths get wider. Similar FF's and is the primary reason to think in orders. Yes that ol chestnut again. I spoke to an ex employee and he mentioned E02 and I said.... well ok common factor on input 12 : 30 teeth. (bad combo) and he fell of his  chair -- how did you know that... oh well.  I could tell but then I have to kill you.  rgds

I’m convinced I’m on spectrum, my two kids Are and in the last 7-8 years have realised it explains a lot of my nuances, out of balance machines badly running etc, low frequency sound drives me nuts and I’ve levels of interest in mechanical stuff that makes most people’s eyes glaze over. I wear it with pride lol.

 Yes I did bata testing or should say tried to. They were terrible and IMHO just junk. Danny may have tried them back in the day and I remember sending a scanner to someone. 
 Vibe did you post the above in the wrong topic as it makes no sense here.

You had to speak to them friendly and mount them properly and figure out how to communicate...... they were kind of alien and I may have a early version that actually was working.

 Mounted them per CSI instructions and communicating with them was not the problem. They had very short battery life and I would expect that might be less of a problem now. The biggest problem I had or maybe it was more of an obstacle was with the CSI contact and his unwillingness to help. I also had a young engineer (ours) that as Danny has said did not know what he did not know that wanted all the information go through him and that made it more difficult.
I don’t remember one positive thing about them. keep in mind that been over 20 years ago.

For me it produced parameters and FFT just as the reference 2120 route so if one was good enough the other was. I got findings of bearing damage and I could tell what end of the motor it was as they mostly have different bearings, If you knew the bearings and entered them etc. Major quirk was to make it collect data at all as the speed need to coincide as described before and all the other CSI  quirks but that is normal. In my early version the communication by IR and a PDA or 2120 was quirky, it improved but was still a serious weak point Yes it was for some reason not treated well by support and sales but that only made me more eager to use it and you know, since it was on the motor sparkys used to not want to visit the machine.... Another 3 letter corp just sold 70 sensors with Bluetooth to a paper mill for exactly the same use will the data be collected do you think? You need to walk up to each sensor and connect and download the data.

I have several of them and a PDA for communications as well as an IR comm cable.

I didn't use them extensively but they seemed to work just fine.

Their limitation to AC induction motors was a real issue.

Thanks. They are really cheap on Ebay. Just wondered if it was worth experimenting with.

You need a PDA and PC support software of some version or a IR com thingy for 2120 and DLP..... just FYI
