wireless condition monitoring bently nevada ranger pro wireless condition monitoring and vibration sensor system

Leverage the internet of things (Iot) to improve uptime, productivity, and safety with our compact and powerful wireless vibration, temperature and velocity sensor system

Wireless Condition Monitoring - Ranger Pro

When you need real-time vibration monitoring combined with rapid, simple deployment of multiple sensors in a wireless network, encrypted data transmission, long battery life, and the ability to work in hazardous environments - the Ranger Pro wireless condition monitoring sensor from Bently Nevada is the answer.

Our efficient and rugged Ranger Pro† Wireless Condition Monitoring Sensor System provides real-time, online condition monitoring data that is critical to an effective predictive maintenance program. The Ranger Pro can be used to gather important machine health data from a broad range of machinery across multiple industries including power generation, oil & gas, mining, pulp & paper, metal processing, and more. Ranger Pro allows for 24/7 monitoring of velocity, acceleration, and temperature plus timebase waveforms, spectra, and PeakDemod spectrum on important machine assets.

Bently Nevada Ranger Pro wireless temperature and vibration monitoring system enables you to:

  • Establish or expand existing reliability programs.
  • Make proactive maintenance decisions based on current data.
  • Decrease unplanned machine failures and downtime
  • Increase machinery life.

While the Ranger Pro is compatible with many third-party software solutions, it is now fully integrated with Bently Nevada's flagship condition monitoring softwareSystem 1†, which allows for seamless, real-time, and fully customizable machine health data.
