Bently Nevada distrubuted vibration monitoring and protection systems serve to prevent catastrophes (loss of life, financial, environmental) and to monitoring the health of machines across a wide range of industries and applications. The complex technology developed by Bently Nevada since 1961 keeps employees safe, improves productivity and efficiency for customer plants, and gives customers greater visibility and clarity for better machine maintenance and reliability.
Bently Nevada's 2300 Vibration Monitors are designed for use on a broad range of machine trains or individual casings where the sensor point count fits the monitor’s channel count and where advanced signal processing is desired. The 2300 Series provides very low cost condition monitoring and protection capabilities on less critical and essential machinery.
These monitors are available with proximity sensing to be used on fluid film bearing machines and velomitor sensing to monitor slow speed machines. Designed to continuously assess and protect essential balance-of-plant equipment assets, the 2300 Series Vibration Monitor can be used a wide range of industries including:
- Oil & Gas
- Power Generation
- Water Treatment
- Pulp & Paper
Monitoring and Protecting large, complex rotating machinery is a high priority in most industrial operations. However, it is generally difficult to justify this type of continuous vibration monitoring for less critical, essential or general purpose equipment. As a result, these machines typically operate without adequate protection.
The Bently Nevada 1900/65 General Purpose Equipment Monitor is a flexible, cost-effective system specifically designed to continuously monitor and protect essential and balance-of-plant equipment assets such as:
- Cooling tower fans
- Air compressors
- Small reciprocating compressors
- Small electric motors
- Small hydro turbines
The 1900/65a provides extensive capabilities: eight input channels; six configurable alarm relays; four 4-20 mA outputs; buffered output facilities for easy connection to portable diagnostic instruments

Condition monitoring is more than just a good idea – it is a necessity. Continuously monitoring critical asset parameters such as vibration, temperature, speed, and other relevant indicators is proven to anticipate and prevent mechanical failures. This method has been proven in tens of thousands of industrial facilities worldwide, and Bently Nevada† delivers these tangible benefits:
- Intelligent, actionable insights for predictive maintenance via System 1† software
- Less process interruptions
- Improved protection from catastrophic failures
- Cost savings in maintenance and repairs
- Cost savings through reduced insurance premiums
- Longer intervals between outages
The 2300 Vibration Monitor provides cost-effective continuous condition monitoring and protection for smaller machines. Features two input signals from acceleration, velocity or proximity vibration transducers as well as a pulse-based speed input. Any of the three channels can accept -24 to 0 V process sensor signals. The 2300 provides three buffered analog signal outputs, two relays for actuating annunciators or initiating protective machine trips, and two 4-20 mA outputs. Modbus/TCP is also available for control systems and HMI display. Offers ATEX, IECEx and CSA certifications to protect areas that may have flammable atmospheres. Condition monitoring trend, waveform and spectrum data is provided to System 1 software via Ethernet.
The 1900/65A General Purpose Equipment Monitor is designed to continuously monitor and protect equipment across a variety of applications and industries. With a low cost, multiple inputs (4 transducer and 4 temperature) and outputs (6 relay, 4 recorder and 1 dedicated buffer) along with optional Modbus and Display Module configuration - the 1900/65A is an ideal solution for general purpose machines and processes that can benefit from continuous monitoring and protection.
Orbit 60 Series is Bently Nevada’s next generation of machinery protection and condition monitoring designed to be the most advanced system for all your critical machinery assets across a wide range of industrial process applications.
