For some applications, a simple vibration sensor maybe all that you need, but with today’s production demands and the complexity of emerging technology – never mind the increased threats to your bottom line in the form of outages and repairs – to attain a truly proactive machinery management system, you need all the data you can get. In short, you need Bently Nevada's condition monitoring solutions on your team.
Protecting your critical machinery with our family of sensors is an important step. But there’s more to effective asset management than just protection. Our sensors work flawlessly with our powerful System 1 software, allowing totally proactive condition monitoring and in-depth diagnostics. Move beyond just protecting your machinery to proactively managing it. You’ll turn unplanned outages into manageable, planned maintenance downtime.
With over six million sensors installed worldwide, 80,000 3500 Machinery Protection Systems deployed around the globe, and more than 10,000 software solutions currently in use, more end-users trust their machinery to Bently Nevada* than anyone else.
Today, although our products number in the thousands, we never rest. Each year, tens of millions of dollars are invested in expanding and improving our technology with the purpose of better serving our customers. Better technology that creates better value is our passion.
At a 240 MW power generation plant, high vibration levels were discovered using a Bently Nevada ADRE 408. Through the diagnosis, damaged turbine blades were discovered and were replaced. With the root cause of the high vibration level identified quickly, a catastrophic failure was avoided, and the customer avoided over 225K of lost production.

Machinery Protection Systems
Protect your critical machine assets with Bently Nevada's line of online machinery protection systems. Our systems continually monitor the vibration levels of your critical assets, alerting you or even shutting down equipment if predetermined levels are exceeded. These systems go well beyond essential protection function, allowing for long-term asset health monitoring and advanced maintenance planning for timely & cost-effective intervention before faults occur.
Distributed Vibration Monitoring
Distributed Condition Monitoring Systems
Distributed systems are designed to be mounted close to the machine they are monitoring thereby reducing costly field wiring. They then use networks to bring data in from multiple devices for central monitoring. The comprehensive Bently Nevada range of distributed condition monitoring systems covers the spectrum from high-performance protection systems to cost-effective wireless condition monitoring solutions.
