ABSTRACT: While ODM is a reliable detection method for faulty gears/bearings, it cannot determine which component is damaged. Vibration data can isolate the faulty component based on expected frequency content; however, vibration measurements of turbine engine main bearings are generally too poor to do this reliably. Etegent's innovative sensor design addresses this issue. BENEFIT: Vastly improved vibration data in hot or difficult-to-access environments
