Loop Powered Stud Mount
Vibration Transmitter
Avoid Catastrophic Failure
Protect your rotating or reciprocating
machinery, including pumps, motors, fans,
blowers, gear boxes, compressors, turbines
and other machinery from excessive vibration.
Vibration monitoring will alert you of
increasing machine vibration levels so
preventative maintenance can be scheduled
before catastrophic failures occur.

General Description
Robertshaw’s model 570B is a loop powered
(10 – 30 VDC) vibration transmitter that
provides a 4-20 mADC output proportionate
to vibration. The transmitter is available with
a variety of acceleration and velocity ranges.
This rugged (316L Stainless Steel, NEMA 4X,
IP68) compact unit provides continuous
monitoring of machine vibration for trending,
alarm and/or shutdown when used with a
PLC, computer, DCS, data logger or current
relays.

Installation is simple and no calibration is
required. A 1/4-28 stud is provided for
mounting in a 1/4-28 tapped hole. The unit
has a 2 pin connector and mates with a
standard MIL-C-5015 2 socket connector with
splash-proof boot for a weatherproof, splashproof connection. Optional cable assemblies
are available in lengths of 16, 32, 64 and 112
feet.

must cross AC power lines at right angles. Where
possible, provide a separate grounded conduit to
enclose the transmitter cable. In addition, route
the cable away from radio transmission
equipment, motors/generators, and transformers.
Finally, avoid routing the cable through areas
prone to ESD. Even though transmitters are
protected against ESD failure, temporary
distortion signals may appear at the output.
Mounting Instructions
The mounting point on the structure should be
faced to a diameter of 1.25 inches.
For
measurements involving frequencies above 1 kHz,
the surface should be flat within 1 mil and have a
surface texture no greater than 32 micro-inches.
The tapped hole must be perpendicular to the
mounting surface and at least two threads deeper
than the stud. This will prevent a gap between the
transmitter and the mounting surface producing
optimum frequency response.
Cable Grounding and Ground Loops
In order to provide proper shielding and prevent
ground loops, cable grounding should be
carefully considered.
Proper screw torque on the mounting stud is also
required. Under-torquing the transmitter reduces
the stiffness of the coupling. Over-torquing can
cause permanent thread damage to the transmitter.
It is recommended that the 1/4-28 stud be torqued
to a value of 30 inch-pounds.

For transmitters using two conductor shielded
cable, the power is carried on one lead and the
return on the other. The cable shield serves to
protect the signal from ESD and electromagnetic
interference (EMI).
The shield should be
grounded at only one point.

Before stud mounting the transmitter, a coupling
fluid should be applied to the mating surfaces.
The coupling fluid protects the mounting surface
and optimizes the frequency response by
increasing the coupling stiffness.
Suggested
coupling fluids are machine oil or vacuum grease.
It is recommended that a thread adhesive such as
Loctite 222 be used.
Cable Anchoring
After mounting the transmitter, the cable should
be anchored to reduce stress at the cable
terminations. When securing the cable, leave
enough slack to allow free movement of the
transmitter.
Cable Routing and Electromagnetic
Interference
Walkie-talkies, power lines, or even electrical
sparks may cause signal interference.
The
following guidelines will eliminate many
measurement errors due to electromagnetic
radiation and electrostatic discharge (ESD).
Assure that high quality, well shielded cables are
used.
If cable splices are made, complete
shielding must be maintained.
Proper cable routing is imperative. Never run
transmitter cable alongside AC power lines; cables

LOOP RESISTANCE
Maximum loop resistance can be calculated by:
V power – 10 V
RL (max) =
20 mA
Loop resistance is the sum of the wiring resistance and
the load resistance.
