Metrix Vibration


A proximity sensor measures the relative distance between the probe tip and the target material. The target material could be a metallic surface of a shaft of a rotating machine or a piston rod of a reciprocating machine. The probe diameter typically determines the distance the probe can measure accurately.

Metrix has revolutionized the industry with our Digital Proximity System (DPS). A user is able to support a multitude of cable lengths, target materials and older probe systems with just a single device. Our Digital Proximity System combines the performance of a fully API 670 compliant eddy-current proximity measurement system with the flexibility of digital configurability. DPS saves our customers time and money.

Seismic Vibration Products

Seismic vibration detection systems are often used by process industries, oil & gas, power generation, water and wastewater, construction, civil and mechanical engineering, and scientific research communities. Seismic vibration instrumentation measures casing vibration on bearing housings, machinery housings, machine support structures, including piping. They are particularly suitable for machinery with rolling-element bearings. These types of bearings will generally transmit both rotor and bearing related vibration to the outside of the machine, where seismic measurements can detect it. 


A vibration switch is a special type of electronic switch that is triggered on or off when a certain pre-defined level of vibration has been measured. Such switches can be configured into simple alarms to alert you when a machine has gone out of tolerance or used as elements to shut down a machine in more complex custom monitoring and automation systems.

At Metrix Vibration, we offer top-of-the-line electronic and mechanical vibration switches for overall vibration monitoring and trending without the need for complex systems. We aim to be your preferred vibration switch manufacturer and supplier for any industry, and our goal is always to keep you and your business safe and productive. We offer models with Hazardous Area Ratings and explosion-proof housings to ensure your production lines stay safe. Our state-of-the-art electronic switches are configurable to suit user needs.

We carry a wide array of products, including electronic vibration switches, mechanical vibration switches, and vibration switch accessories. 

Industrial Shakers

The Hardy Shaker ensures that the Seismic Sensors and Transmitters that you have installed are working properly and giving you the results you need. Just like the pressure and flow instruments in your facility need calibration checks every year, so do your Seismic Sensors and Transmitters. This system puts the calibration check of those Seismic Sensors and Transmitters within your control, and within your budget. A cost effective maintenance strategy is a predictive and proactive strategy, versus a preventative maintenance or run-to-failure strategy. The entire premise of a predictive and proactive maintenance program is based on the reliability and integrity of the transducers providing the information in a timely way. If the Seismic transducers are not working properly, you will not receive the value you are expecting in order to produce the return on investment that you have already made. The Hardy Shaker is a necessary tool to ensure your proactive maintenance strategy is effective. The Hardy Shaker comes in two models - HI-903 and HI-913.


Whether you need a local display, alarm and shutdown capability, data recording, and the ability to communicate using Modbus over Ethernet TCP/IP; or you need to trend waveform and transient data to provide a predictive look at your machine’s condition, Metrix has a solution to meet your machinery monitoring requirements.
