We are making a Android vibrometer, ver3 seems to work, promising. 5 years work so far.
(You know that according to Google, US and Burma are the only places officially using Imperial :-))

In metric advice colors etc. for "alarms"  are easy to start using 10816-1 simplified, 2.8, 7.1 and 18 mm/s RMS. In Imperial we try the API 0.1 IPS p-p and GM thumb rules like 1.5x etc, any input on that?
Yes one sunny day it can be manually set but a peaklist have priority. If you like we can even make ISO 10816-3 with German VDI addition for compressors and similar....... but likely not this year.

Didn't 10816 get replaced with 20816?

They change numbers all the time or revised every 3 years according to plan? Do they mess up the numbers inside also this time? Well the main question was similar limits in Imperial or would a direct conversion work? What do you rely on when getting a first reading as good, bad, disaster  for green, yellow and red in the display?

So in IPS the guide levels converted from old ISO for green/yellow/red would be 0.11, 0.28, 0.71 IPS RMS, is that useful in Imperial?

Hi Oli, don't get me started.  Imperial is the silliest system in the world. US should convert to metric and UK should ditch MPH.

Customers are always right even when they are wrong so that's why I ask, this is the second thing we make that can display Imperial, the first had a BW screen 15 years ago so obvious references like that was not so required and a few was sold in the US, before that we only made things in Metric and sold nothing in US so with colour and IPS, what could go wrong :-) you even get bearing condition in milliIPS what can be better?
