Note: It's the end user's responsibility to ensure that all work is completed in a manner that is safe for any person completing the work.
An MHM sensor may be stud mounted to the surface of a machine when:
  • The highest quality vibration data is required.
  • There is not enough physical space on the asset for magnet or epoxy mounting.
Mounting Process:
  1. Select a location on the asset to be monitored at either the inboard or outboard end of the unit, oriented vertically or horizontally.
  2. Use a spot-facing tool to "face-off" the MHM sensor install location on the asset, with a hole size for a 1/4"-28 thread to be applied. 
  3. Thread the hole created by the spot-facing tool with a 1/4"-28 tap.
  4. Remove the MHM sensor from its base by unscrewing the thumbscrew and sliding the base off. 
  5. Attach the MHM sensor base to the asset, using a 1/4"-28 socket head bolt by running the bolt through the base; orient the base such that the antenna of the sensor is perpendicular to the rotational axis of the motor.
  6. Attach the MHM sense node to the base by sliding the sensor into the base and tightening the thumbscrew
  7. Connect and dress the TEG, PV, and cables for the MHM power train.
