A stethoscope is used for locating noises within machines and installations, such as those made by ventilators, pistons or pumas. This stethoscopeis ideal in preventative maintenance to check noises, control of vibrations, or the oscillation of pieces within the research and development sectors or for continuous inspection.
Noises made by moving components are significantly amplified with the help of a stethoscope and environmental noise is reduced by way of the well insulated headset. The electronic stethoscope is delivered with two different measurement points, which allows for measurements in places that are difficult to access.
A few stethoscope models offer additional functions, such as the Fourier analysis (FFT) for the accurate diagnosis of oscillations in the industrial sector; another additional function is the simultaneous detection of revolutions, or the optical inspection of the equilibrium mismatch.
