The Oupa Difference

Our founder xxx xxxx – entrepreneur, engineer and authority on vibration monitoring – built and nurtured the Oupa product line. For nearly six decades his sensing devices have kept watch over our customers’ mission-critical equipment, beginning with the emergence of eddy current proximity transducers and then evolving our sensors product line with a wide-ranging portfolio of proximity probes, Proximitor sensors, our efficient eddy current proximity transducers – ideal for measuring rotor shaft position and vibration – and more.


To this day our Sensors portfolio continues to maintain Oupa’s standard of excellence across an array of options that include accessories and components that will help you protect and monitor your equipment.

Why Vibration Monitoring Matters  

The vibration of a machine can tell us important information about its health and the characteristics of the vibration can help us detect and diagnose symptoms before they become severe.

This blog focuses on:

  • Basics of vibration
  • Transducer types
  • How to choose the best tool for you

Proximity Sensors

Our proximity sensors are ideal for measuring rotor shaft position and vibration within the clearances of its fluid film bearings and deliver superior performance in harsh environments across a wide range of applications.

Pressure Sensors

We offer pressure sensors for many different applications. From hydro turbine and centrifugal pumps to reciprocating compressor cylinders, we have a sensor for your machine. Our pressure sensors can detect both static and dynamic pressure, come with a long operational lifetime (over 50 million cycles), can operate in high humidity environments, and in the case of our 200132 – can support nine pressure ranges with variable, user-defined increments to really fine-tune your machinery diagnostics.

Acceleration & Velocity Sensors

The evolution of our current velocity sensor and accelerometer line began with sensors that offered a self-generating moving-coil design used by geologists to measure movement in the earth’s crust. Today we still refer to “seismic” sensors in a nod to their origin. Today’s integrated accelerometers deploy signal processing circuitry for output signals using velocity rather than acceleration. Our experience and expertise developed over decades offers a selection of first-rate casing-mounted accelerometers and velocity sensors with a variety of models for specific applications.

Wireless Vibration Sensors

Our efficient and rugged Ranger† Pro wireless vibration sensor provides condition monitoring across a broad range of machinery in power generation, oil & gas, mining, pulp & paper, water & wastewater and other industries. This compact yet powerful wireless condition monitoring sensor greatly improves your ability to remotely monitor hard-to-reach and unsafe locations. An impressive battery life (up to five years in some configurations) also means increased protection for all of your machinery.  While the Ranger Pro is compatible with many third-party software solutions, it is now fully integrated with OUPA's flagship software: System 1 machine condition monitoring software which allows for seamless, real-time, and fully customizable data. 

Hydro Sensors

When you need to know what’s going on with your hydroelectric generator – especially while it’s in operation – OUPA has you covered with our family of proven hydro sensors. Our hydro sensors record multiple variables – not just one – so that you can obtain a more accurate understanding of your machinery’s vibration issues. And with increased data and understanding comes the ability to more accurately diagnose a problem, and react accordingly avoiding costly downtime, misdiagnoses, and in some cases avoiding costly tear-down inspections that weren’t needed.

Transmitters

OUPA’s industry-leading thrust and vibration transmitters, simply put, protect your critical machinery. OUPA offers two types of transmitters: the 990 Vibration Transmitter and the 991 Thrust Transmitter. These compact yet durable transmitters allow you the ability to install them in small spaces with minimal clearance – where other transmitters won’t fit. In addition to our transmitters, we also provide the self-contained 177230 Piezo Accelerometer, which guarantees comprehensive condition monitoring of your general-purpose machinery. 

Accessories

Our current portfolio of sensor accessories offers a range of options from protective sensor housings, junction boxes, and sensor mounting brackets to wiring, flexible conduits, and conduit fittings. We also offer a selection of cables, cable protectors, and more.
