Technical Considerations

  • High-Resolution Data Analysis: The Trivibe sensor’s capability to record over 50,000 samples per second offers high-resolution vibration data. This is particularly beneficial for detecting subtle changes in generator operation, which could indicate early signs of wear or impending failure.
  • Customizable Data Output: With options for high pass, low pass, and band pass filters, the data output can be tailored to specific needs of different generator models, ensuring more relevant and actionable insights.
  • Integration and Programming Flexibility: The sensor’s digital integration capability through an RS485 port and the availability of Python source code on Jupyter Notebooks make it highly adaptable to various control systems and monitoring setups.
  • Durability in Industrial Environments: Manufactured in the USA and designed for a long lifespan, the Trivibe sensor is robust and suitable for the demanding environments where industrial generators operate.
  • Wide Frequency Range: Its broad frequency range (0.8 Hz to 6000 Hz) enables the monitoring of a wide spectrum of vibration frequencies, which is crucial for comprehensive generator health assessment.

Financial Considerations

  • Cost-Effectiveness of Predictive Maintenance: Early detection of potential issues allows for predictive maintenance, reducing the likelihood of costly emergency repairs and downtime. The high-resolution data provided by Trivibe can lead to significant long-term cost savings.
  • Initial Investment vs. Long-Term Savings: While the initial investment in Trivibe sensors may be higher than some alternatives, the potential savings from avoiding major repairs and downtime can be substantial.
  • Reduced Installation and Maintenance Costs: The ease of integration and minimal maintenance requirements of the Trivibe sensor reduce installation and ongoing operational costs.
  • Warranty and Reliability: With a standard 1-year warranty extendable to five years, the sensor presents a reliable investment. Its capacity to meet high demand also attests to its industry acceptance and durability.


The Machine Saver's Trivibe vibration sensors for generators offers a compelling combination of technical advantages for monitoring the health of industrial generators. Its high-resolution data, customizable output, and robust design make it technically suitable for this application. Financially, although the initial investment may be higher, the potential for long-term cost savings through predictive maintenance and reduced downtime is significant. The sensor’s ease of installation and low maintenance requirements further enhance its financial appeal. Therefore, the Trivibe sensor is a prudent choice for industries looking to optimize the health and performance of their industrial generators.
