Has anyone used or seen these installed at a plant?  They are being pitched as a cheaper alternative to proximity probes.


The Insight FDS is a low cost non-intrusive sensor for fluid film bearings that indirectly measures bearing forces to provide time waveform, spectral, and 4-20mA overall condition monitoring capabilities comparable to proximity probes without the need for equipment downtime or machine work to install.

We played with a couple in the office but we never got to put them on live equipment. I don't remember there being an amplitude scale on the spectral peaks. We did notice that it would register our voices just talking among ourselves in the office.

As someone who knows nothing about fluid film bearings and they're monitoring I cant say I have much insight, they do look like an interesting alternative though from all the hassle and mithre prox probes sound to be.
