Intrinsically Safe Smart Vibration Analyser 9085-EX Interprets, Analyses and Trends Machine Conditions including bearing wear and temperature. Wireless Charging.

Smart Vibration, Bearing Condition & Temperature Analyser.

The TPI 9085-Ex is a simple, easy to use, low cost vibration meter that records, analyses and displays vibration, bearing wear & temperature at the push of a button.


  • Find machine faults before they stop your machine
  • Increase productivity and lower maintenance costs
  • Measure temperature to determine if a bearing requires lubrication, preventing wear and failure
  • Use temperature measurement to confirm a high BDU reading (bearing noise) is caused by a worn bearing and not noise from pump cavitation, gearbox noise, or a nearby noisy bearing
  • Temperature measurement aids in diagnosing a tight or loose housing or shaft fit on a bearing
  • Measuring temperature assists with potential electrical issues on motors such as winding insulation deterioration, single phasing, broken rotor bars etc.

Supplied in Soft Carry Case with space for 9085-Ex, charger, cord, Accelerometer Cable & Accelerometer, Docking Cradle & USB Cable.

The Vib Meter 9085-Ex is an intrinsically safe, simple to use vibration monitoring and analysis tool that allows easy display of vibration signals.

The meter automatically performs vibration analysis functions based on machine running speed to help diagnose faults such as unbalance, misalignment and looseness, as well as indicating the degree of bearing wear.

The Vib Meter 9085-Ex unit is designed to enable a user to collect vibration and temperature measurements from assets (e.g. pumps, motors, fans and bearings). The unit displays vibration frequency plots and allows vibration severity and bearing condition to be monitored, analyzed and trended with the included C-Trend II PC analysis software.

C-Trend II software gives you greater ease of use and flexibility.

  • Store analyse and report on all your vibration parameters in one place.
  • All information is just a click away. Color coded alarms highlight problems. Trend lines show problems before they happen.9085 Smart Vibration Analyser

Overall machine and bearing conditions: vibration values are displayed with color coded alarm levels for ISO values and Bearing Damage Units (BDU).

C-Trend II – Trending Software
Powerful, easy to use asset management and fault diagnosis software compatible with Windows 7 and above.

C-Trend II is the PC based software that allows users to view trends of vibration readings taken with the Vib Meter 9085-Ex, in a way that enables predictions to be made about machine condition.

C-Trend II is included with the 9085-Ex. Once the software is installed go to the activation screen and email the Hardware Key that is displayed to:

C-Trend II is very intuitive and very easy to drive and its full functionality is described in more detail in its built-in Help Guide.

In brief, C-Trend II allows display of vibration data in a variety of different ways including vibration frequency spectra, bearing noise and ISO trend plots, waterfall diagrams (see figure below) and can generate reports either manually or automatically (e.g. by sending out email alerts).
