Collecting Vibration Data with a Portable Collector

When collecting vibration data with a portable collector, the transducer must be securely mounted to the collection point. I generally use a flat rare earth magnet, but there are some points that are "less than flat". An easy solution is to just pack an extra transducer with a 2 pole magnet in your pocket. It is quick and easy to change transducers, and you will ensure accurate data. Just make sure the transducer sensitivities are the same.
