HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL SHAFT ALIGMENT
The built-in electronic inclinometer keeps you from having to adjust levels and indicates at all times the shaft rotation angle. LA Blue uses an extremely precise and linear detector therefore does not require any correction. The chain universal brackets are very easy to put on and take what makes fast work.
The LABlue software runs under Windows operating systems (8, 7, Vista, and XP).
Depending on the kind of environment you can choose between a standard computer or a rugged computer designed for industrial use (It complies with IP65 protection and MIL-STD-810G).
The LABlue is delivered with the computer and ready for use.
ALLOWS PRECISE AND QUICK MACHINE VERIFICATION AND CORRECTION
OF SHAFT ALIGNMENT CONDITION IN ONLY 3 STEPS
STEP 1: Simply choose whether to work with two machines or a train of machines, select the machine type and enter measures such as distances, coupling's diameter and rotational speed (RPM) in the blank boxes. You can start filling in any box as the order does not matter. To guide you throughout all steps contextual help will appear in a box at the bottom of the screen indicating the input values in each case.
STEP 2: Measurement is simple and easily performed by rotating the shafts from any position and in any sense. You can choose between different measuring modes as continuous, 0369 or multipoint. In case you are unable to make a full shaft turn you can use the restricted rotation mode. Extension Mode feature allows you to continue measuring even if the machines have a gross misalignment.
STEP 3: Once the measurement is completed results will appear in graphical and numerical values of offset and gap in the vertical and horizontal views corresponding to the values in the coupling. The offset is the distance between two lines in the plane of transmission of the coupling, while the gap is the angle between the two shafts multiplied by the diameter of the coupling. These values take into account any correction made by Targets or Thermal Growth if such options are active. The results include the vertical and horizontal position of the machine foots to enable the correction.
