iLearn Vibration

iLearnVibration provides step by step training from the comfort of your workplace or home. iLearnVibration covers basic and intermediate-level vibration analysis training. Complete with animations, interactive simulations, and quizzes, iLearnVibration makes vibration analysis easier to master.

iLearnVibration can be installed on a PC so that Internet access is not required, or it can be accessed via our "iLearn-online" Learning Portal so that installation is not required. Larger organizations can license our portal or iLearnVibration can be installed in your Learning Management System. Available in several languages: English, Spanish and Chinese.

iLearnVibration is for the person who needs an introduction to vibration analysis, condition monitoring, and maintenance practices. iLearnVibration takes you by the hand and teaches you the absolute basics. The training assumes you are very new to vibration analysis and need to understand why we measure vibration, how machine vibration relates to machine condition, what the difference is between the time waveform and spectrum, and much more. It also looks at the bigger picture; why predictive maintenance is important, how precision maintenance improves reliability (and reduces maintenance costs), and how condition monitoring technologies can be used to determine the health of your machine.

With iLearnVibration, you get more than just vibration analysis training content, it also includes:

Real machine data from real machines that have real fault conditions. With 25 machines you get to see time waveforms and spectra collected from the machines over a few years. You can see how the vibration patterns and trends changed, and observe what the vibration looks like before failure. The other 25 machines have "live data" - 30-second recordings of raw vibration from multiple points/axes on the machines. You can analyze the vibration with our software, or play it into your analyzer - yes, you can use an inexpensive cable between the computer speaker-output and your analyzer BNC input.


A series of 30-second recordings from a fault demonstration rig. Again, you can analyze the data with the provided software, or play it into your analyzer. With a few clicks you can see data from when the rig had bad bearings installed, weights added to set it out of balance, bolts loosened so there is looseness, and more.

The Signals Module, where you can interactively build signals with different frequencies, amplitudes and phase differences. You can explore modulation, beatings and other phenomena. And you can experiment with windowing, averaging and resolution.

And finally, the Machine Faults" module, where you can drag and drop machine icons on to the work area, enter a few details (running speed, number of fan blades, and so on), and view simulated vibration data and the forcing frequencies. Apart from being very informative, this program can help you to ensure that your alarms, analyzer settings, and forcing frequencies are set correctly in your database.
