The CMCP810PC Runout Kit documents electrical and
mechanical runout present on a shaft. Surface Irregularities,
Electrical Runout, Residual Magnetism, and Residual Stress
Concentrations can all contribute to shaft runout which will create
erroneous readings for proximity or eddy probe systems.
American Petroleum Institute (API) Standard 670 recommends that "the
combined total electrical and mechanical runout does not exceed 25
percent of the maximum allowed peak to peak vibration amplitude or 0.25
mil (6 micrometers), whichever is greater."
The CMCP810PC is the ideal tool to document these irregularities and
confirm that the shaft surface is within desired specifications for
proximity probes to observe. Using 16 bit resolution data is collected
in the +-20 VDC range eliminating the need for a Bucking Amplifier to
offset Proximity Probe Gap Voltage. The stored waveforms can then be
zoomed in on for measurement. The 16 Bit Resolution provide <1 mv
The CMCP810PC is easy to use and understand as it makes use of a
user supplied or optionally provided PC (Laptop) and a two (2) Channel
USB Powered Oscilloscope Module. Basic “Runout” Setup is stored in the
PC and easy to recall. Data files can be stored for later analysis,
printing and transmittal.
