Medidores de vibración salida RS232 Datalogger VT-8204 LUTRON manual ingles www.viaindustrial.com
The classifications for each machine group are specified as follows :
Small machines, especially production electrical motors of up to 15 KW ( Group K )
Medium sized machines, especially electrical motors with 15 up to 75 KW output,
without special foundations ( Group M )
Large machines on heavy foundations ( Group G )
Largest machines and turbo machines with a special foundations ( Group T ).
