Identifying Vibration Axes on a VibX Series Sensor

Last Updated: July 27th, 2020
In this article

The VibX Series sensors are tri-axis MEMS accelerometers in an aluminium casing, with either a magnetic or grub screw fitting for mounting. Each channel can be accessed by an AlphaX device in a sequential basis. Download firmware from out GITHUB for example how. 

Primary Axis – Y Axis

The main Y-axis is longitudinal through the sensor body and in line with the plug. + direction is from the bottom of the sensor towards the plug.

Tri-Axis – X and Z Axis

The main Y-axis remains longitudinal as displayed above. The additional axis are on adjacent sides of the sensor when placed vertical. The notch in the top of the plug indicates the +Z axis positive direction.
