Part Number: 3300/65
Manufacturer: Bently Nevada
Product type: Dual Probe Monitor
Country of Manufacture: United States (USA)
3300/65 is a dual probe monitor designed and developed by Bently Nevada. Dual Probe Monitor combines the shaft relative displacement signal from a Bently Nevada proximity transducer and casing vibration from a velocity transducer, both of which are installed in the same axis on the machine, into a single measurement of shaft absolute vibration. Dual Probe Monitors are intended for use in machines with fluid film bearings, such as large steam and gas turbines, where shaft vibration is transmitted to the case.
The Dual Probe Monitor provides four distinct measurements:
- Shaft relative vibration - A measurement of shaft vibration relative to the bearing housing using a proximity probe.
- Bearing housing vibration - A seismic measurement of the vibration of the bearing housing in relation to free space.
- Shaft absolute vibration - A vector sum of shaft relative and bearing housing vibration.
- A proximity probe dc gap measurement of the shaft's average radial position relative to the bearing clearance.
- Signal: Accepts two signals- one from a proximity transducer and one from a 600 cpm 2-wire velocity Seismoprobe, Velomitor, or Velomitor XA.
Relative Transducer: 10 k ohm.
Seismic Transducer: (2-wire) 10 k ohm.
Proximity Probe: 200 mV/mil (7.87 V/mm), 100 mV/mil (3.94 V/mm), Jumper-selectable.
Seismoprobe: 500 mV/(in/s) (19.69 mV/(mm/s)).
- Velomitor: 100 mV(in/s) (3.94 mV/(mm/s))
- Power Consumption: Nominal consumption of 1.5 watts.
- Corners with nominal -3dB Userprogrammable for proximity transducer at 4 to 4,000 Hz (240 to 240,000 cpm) or 1 to 600 Hz (60 to 36,000 cpm)
- Seismic at 4 to 4,000 Hz (240 to 240,000 cpm); Absolute at 10 to 4000 Hz (600 to 240,000 cpm). (or 36,000 cpm if the 1-600 Hz relative option is chosen)
- The 1 to 600 Hz (60 to 36,000 cpm) frequency range is not recommended for machine applications that require rapid startup and coastdown rates and acceleration/deceleration rates greater than 1,000 rpm per second. The monitor circuitry will retain vibration transients normally experienced during fast startup because of the extended low frequency range to 60 cpm.
- Alarms (Alert, Danger, and Gap) are digitally adjustable from 0 to 100% of full-scale and can be set to a desired level within LCD resolution (1.66% of full-scale).
- Alarms are repeatable to within 0.4% of full-scale once set.
- Liquid Crystal Display with nonmultiplexing vertical bargraph (LCD). Each channel has 63 individual LCD segments.
- On a third, center scale, the probe gap is indicated. The LCD also shows error codes and the ADJUST mode.
- Within ±1.6% of monitor fullscale.
- 83 mm (3.2 in), vertical dimension.
- One constant ON green LED per channel indicates that the monitor, transducers, and field wiring are in good working order.
- Constant OFF indicates a NOT OK condition or that the channel has been bypassed (red Bypass LED will be ON). OK LED flashing at 1 Hz indicates transducer has been NOT OK, but is now OK.
- OK An LED flashing at 5 Hz indicates that an error code (or codes) has been stored in memory. There is one OK LED for the relative transducer and one for the seismic transducer.
- Two red LEDs per channel indicate the status of the alarm (independent Alert and Danger LEDs for each channel).
- First Out is indicated by a flashing alarm LED (independent for Alert and Danger alarms).
- The status of the Danger Bypass and Rack/Channel Bypass functions is indicated by two red LEDs.
- Operating Temperature: 0°C to +65°C
- Storage Temperature: -40°C to +85°C
- Relative Humidity: To 95%, noncondensing.
- Rack Space Requirements:The first and second rack slots are designated for Power Supply and System Monitor, respectively. Monitor can be installed in any available rack position.
- Weight: 1 kg

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is 3300/65?
It is a dual probe monitor designed and developed by Bently Nevada.
How does a Dual Probe Monitor work?
The Monitor combines the signals from two types of sensors: a proximity transducer and a velocity transducer. The proximity transducer measures the shaft relative displacement, while the velocity transducer measures the casing vibration. By combining these two signals, the Dual Probe Monitor can calculate the absolute vibration of the shaft.
Why is the component used in machines with fluid film bearings?
In machines with fluid film bearings, such as large steam and gas turbines, shaft vibration is transmitted to the case. This makes it difficult to measure the absolute vibration of the shaft using a single sensor. The Dual Probe Monitor overcomes this challenge by combining the signals from two sensors to calculate the absolute vibration of the shaft.
What are the benefits of using a Dual Probe Monitor?
The main benefit is that it provides an accurate measurement of the absolute vibration of the shaft in machines with fluid film bearings. This allows operators to detect potential problems with the machine before they cause serious damage or downtime. The Dual Probe Monitor is also easy to install and maintain, and can be used in a variety of industrial applications.
How is it installed?
The component is installed in the same axis as the shaft being monitored. The proximity transducer is mounted on the shaft, while the velocity transducer is mounted on the casing. The signals from both sensors are then fed into the Dual Probe Monitor, which calculates the absolute vibration of the shaft.
