Neuron Vibration RMS

The Neuron Vibration RMS measures vibration level and surface temperature every two minutes. The sensor has an embedded magnet at the back for easy installation. Temperature measurement is done through the magnet.

Experience how easy it is to get started and the huge benefits of our simple and practical IoT solutions.

General Description

Neuron Vibration RMS is a battery-powered, wireless device that senses and transmits RMS acceleration processed from its triaxial accelerometer to the Neuron Cloud. The sensor provides a measurement range of 0 – 12 g RMS in a resolution of 1 mg. It also has a temperature sensor mounted on its magnet, measuring the object’s ambient temperature over the range -40 to 85°C.

The device is housed in an IP67 rated enclosure that provides protection against dust and water ingress, making it suitable for use in harsh industrial environments. Its small size and light weight, paired with its magnetic mounting makes it a very powerful device, ideal for use in predictive maintenance and monitoring of vibration levels on a variety of industrial equipment and machinery.


Principle of Operation

Neuron Vibration RMS measures acceleration across three axes during a period of 80 ms every 2 minutes. The sensors calculates the RMS g value of the acceleration and transmits the data, including the temperature data, to a nearby Neuron Gateway. The gateway sends the data to the Neuron Cloud, where the user can view and analyze the vibration data across their assets.



  • Long life battery – up to 10 years lifetime
  • Continuous measurement and instant alarm
  • Adjustment of parameters such as measurement frequency on request
  • Define your own alarm levels in the Neuron app
  • Receive alerts as push notifications, emails or SMS
  • Easily connect the sensor to the system with the QR- code on the sensor. Ensures immediate and accurate registration in the app on your phone/PC/tablet
  • The sensor transmits data to your nearby Neuron Gateway which then again communicates with the Neuron Cloud

Neuron sensors are ready for use out of the box and will start logging data after registering the sensor in the app. Even though Neuron sensors deliver great range and long battery life, following some simple guidelines for mounting of the sensor and gateway can greatly improve signal coverage and lifetime of the sensor.

To ensure optimal antenna performance and signal strength, the sensor should be placed elevated with some distance to fixed objects. Keep in mind that RF-signals are greatly affected by close metallic surfaces.

For sensors with an external antenna, the antenna should be clear off the metallic surface.

For sensors operating in environments with greatly varying temperatures, care should be taken to avoid putting the sensor in unnecessary stress. Very high or low temperatures will affect the battery life and the signal strength of the sensor. While some sensors must be close to the source of heat or cold, other sensors have external probes which allow the sensor to be placed at a distance.

Neuron Vibration RMS is fitted with a strong magnet at the back for easy fastening. If there is non-magnetic surface, PN 422691 Neuron Magnetic Mounting Assembly is a good solution. Epoxy glue can also be used to fasten the sensor to non-magnetic surfaces.
