New VibraLink enclosures enable fast data collection

August 13, 2014Germantown, MD – The new VibraLink® enclosures feature an industry-exclusive LED that indicates when data can be collected. Enclosures are custom manufactured to user specifications of size, material and output to meet every monitoring need.

VibraLink® switchboxes provide a convenient termination for up to 48 cables, for safe and fast data acquisition. All Meggitt enclosures feature radio frequency interference (RFI) filtering, differential switching and a grounding lug. MIL-C-5015 and BNC output connectors provide quick connectivity to portable data collectors. Online connectivity output is available for route-based or online monitoring.

LEDs indicate when sensor bias output voltage (BOV) levels have stabilized, and data is ready to be collected. Ski slope values appear when output levels are unsettled, and can result in inaccurate data. The indicator light enables reliable data readings and eliminates the need for multiple readings.

VibraLink® enclosures are designed with up to 66% more interior space compared to other models, easing cable connections. Corrosion-resistant and NEMA 4X (IP66) rated, the enclosures are built for use in harsh plant environments. Predrilled, sealed access holes prevent water and dust entry.

“Our improved switchboxes offer excellent usability and durability in the field,” said Peter Eitnier, Applications Engineer for Wilcoxon Research® products. “Designed with our customers in mind, VibraLink® boxes are easily installable and offer fast, reliable data over time. The innovative design enables rapid production for delivery in less than two weeks.”

The VibraLink® series includes enclosures compatible with triaxial and dual-output sensors. Other housings include termination junction boxes, cable reduction boxes, and transmitter enclosures. To learn more about Meggitt enclosures, visit or e-mail
