General Description

Our best-selling sensor, the vibration sensor, is frequently used for monitoring machines, motors, pumps and industrial assets and equipment. The sensor measures both vibration and surface temperature every two minute and is easily attached with a magnet to the object to be monitored, without interfering with existing equipment. You can buy the PdM package with or without consulting hours included.

Principle of Operation

The sensor has IP67, is very sensitive to changes in vibration and will be able to detect, among other things, imbalance, rubbing, unfavourable resonance and loose components. In addition, the temperature of the object being monitored is measured. In binary mode, the sensor can also be used for logging errors and deviations.

In the Neuron app, which follows the sensor system, you set your own alarm limits and receive early alerts in the event of errors or deviations. The sensor is powered by an energy-efficient battery with a long life (typically 10 years) and is connected to a gateway (data collector) that is included in the package. From the gateway, data is sent to Neuron Cloud, which is the system’s cloud solution, and on to the Neuron app, which gives you access to all data with an unlimited number of users.


  • Immediate notification in the event of deviations – set your own alarm limits
  • Simple installation with magnet fastening – QR code links sensor to system and app
  • Energy-efficient battery – lifetime up to 10 years
  • Robust sensor for demanding environments – particularly suitable for industry
  • Complete system – Sensor – Gateway – Cloud – App
  • Developed and produced in Norway

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.

The small, compact blue Neuron sensors are fitted with fastening holes for use with cable ties. The sensors are also delivered with double-sided tape that may be used for fastening of the sensors.

All the black Neuron sensors, like the Neuron IR380 and Neuron Vibration, are fitted with a strong magnet at the back for easy fastening. If there is no magnetic surface, then double-sided tape is a good solution.
