Handheld VSA-1200 Vibration
Datastick handheld VSA vibration analyzers are priced below comparable devices and you can learn them in a couple of hours, yet they have capabilities you would expect in analyzers costing many times as much. VSA-1200s are as accurate – and in several cases, more accurate – than those very costly portable vibration analyzers, and they weigh just 11 oz (0.31 kg)
- Easy-to-use touchscreen
- Virtually unlimited storage for your measurement data using SD cards
- FFTs up to 3200 lines
- Maximum frequency: 20 kHz
- Lowest minimum frequency available in portable vibration analyzers: Sub-Hz (less than 1 CPM)
- Detect resonance, unbalance/misalignment, bearing faults, and much more
- Email measurement files to and from the handheld computer using Datastick Mail or your browser-based email
- Post charts to your website directly from the handheld computer
- Lowest noise floor in the industry among portable vibration analyzers
- Includes all the benefits of a handheld computer
With the VSA vibration analyzer, you don't need as much vibration expertise at your site to avoid unscheduled breakdowns. That’s because of Datastick Spectrum software for the handheld computer – amazingly easy to use and fast to learn – and allows you to do analysis at the machine using the touchscreen.
We have just introduced Spectrum 2.0 for the VSA-1214, VSA-1215, and VSA-1217 analyzers. It is available as an upgrade for VSA users.
Also, the included Datastick Reporting System DRS™ PC software is compatible with Microsoft Excel – not proprietary software – making it easy to create Microsoft Office reports, post to the web, and share data with consultants and colleagues.
VSA-1200 Vibration Spectrum Analyzer Models: Choose the VSA-1214 vibration analyzer for solid value in entry-level applications. The VSA-1215 is the most popular model of vibration analyzer. The VSA-1217 adds displacement input and supports ICP-type pressure sensors, and impact or bump testing for resonance. All VSA-1200s have a rotating screen for a wide view. All packages come with a soft PC-1 Protective Case; an optional RC-5 Rugged Enclosure for added protection from rough handling and the environment is available.

A customer speaks: "We’re very happy that we can do analysis right at the machine, since the Datastick vibration analyzer shows full spectrums and alarms. Even if you’re not at your computer with the measurement files downloaded, you can still do analysis with the vibration unit itself!" – Alex Puentes, Reliability Engineering Manager, Prairie Packaging, Pactiv Corp.
Advanced Vibration Analysis Software on your PC
DAART™ (Datastick Advanced Analysis and Reporting Toolkit) PC software for vibration analysis is the next best thing to taking the machine apart to see how it's operating.
DAART's advanced analytics Sharpener,™ Peaking,™ and Impact Factor™ – help vibration experts perform precise vibration analysis to get at the root cause of machine vibration with ease and certainty.
Datastick Peaking and Impact Factor – find out why we think they are better than PeakVue,* Crest Factor,* Spike Energy* and other metrics for early warning of bearing faults.
Why vibration analysis? A vibration analyzer is the single best tool for the maintenance and reliability professional to predict possible breakdowns of your reciprocating and rotating machinery. Predicting enables you to plan when you need to take your equipment offline for repairs. This means that you are getting the most use uptime of your equipment, and protect the investment in your assets by handling needed repairs before an unexpected breakdown occurs. Predictive Maintenance (PdM), Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM), and Condition Monitoring save money and time, and can prevent damage to your equipment. Protect the investment in your equipment by scheduling repair actions. Don't be surprised by sudden, unexpected breakdowns and their costly consequences. You can have much greater certainty and confidence that your machines won't fail on you unexpectedly.
It's All About Return on Investment
The fact is, you are doing this for your health — your facility's machine health relates directly to your financial health. Here are some things to consider. . .
A customer speaks: "I’ve been in the vibration business for 30 years. For a long time I have hoped for a piece of equipment that would replace the heavy, hard-to-use box I had used for all those years. Now I have it. The Datastick VSA-1215 Vibration Analyzer is awesome. It’s small and light, very user-friendly, and lets me perform very detailed analysis." – Joseph Niziolek, owner, New Jersey Balancing, Inc.
