1  Preliminary note
• An instruction is indicated by „►“:
Example: ► Mount the unit as shown.
Important note
Non-compliance can result in malfunction or interference.

Supplementary note.
2  Safety instructions UK
• Please read the operating instructions prior to set-up of the device. Ensure that
the product is suitable for your application without any restrictions.
• The unit conforms to the relevant regulations and EC directives.
• Improper or non-intended use may lead to malfunctions of the unit or to
unwanted effects in your application.
• Installation, electrical connection, set-up, operation and maintenance of the
unit must only be carried out by qualified personnel authorised by the machine
• The design of the unit corresponds to protection class II (EN61010) except for
the terminal blocks. Protection against accidental contact (safety from finger
contact to IP20) for qualified personnel is only ensured if the terminals have
been completely inserted. Therefore the unit must always be mounted in a
control cabinet of at least IP 54 which can only be opened using a tool.
• For DC units the external 24 V DC supply must be generated and supplied
according to the requirements for safe extra-low voltage (SELV) since this
voltage is provided near the operating elements and at the terminals for the
supply of sensors without further protection measures.

3  Functions and features

• The diagnostic electronics VSE002 is designed for the connection of 4 vibration
sensors and the monitoring of 2 process categories. It evaluates the sensor
signals and indicates whether a preset limit value for the corresponding sensor
has been reached.

• The final function depends on the firmware version. The current firmware
and operating software can be downloaded from the download area on ifm
electronic‘s website.
• Online monitoring
-- individual monitoring of up to 24 freely adjustable diagnosis objects.
-- individual setting of up to 80 frequency bands in the frequency range and
allotment to the diagnosis objects.
-- monitoring of both process categories for exceeding the set value or dropping
below it.
• Monitoring of the diagnosis objects possible with regard to up to 2 process
categories (e.g. load and rotational speed).
• Spectral analysis FFT, envelope-curve FFT, trend analysis.
• Velocity monitoring to ISO 10816 with variable filter setting.
• Evaluation of up to 4 VSAxxx sensors or 3 VSAxxx sensors and one IEPE
sensor on the terminal for „sensor 1“.
• Internal trend memory with RTC time stamp with flexible storage intervals for
each diagnosis object.
• Counter function: As from FW6-11 the unit can provide signals for up to an
additional 22 load meters and/or operating hours counter.
• Setting using the PC software article no. VES003.
• Communication with a PC or processor via Ethernet (required accessory: OPC
The device is not approved for safety-related tasks in the field of operator

4  Mounting
Mount the unit in a control cabinet with a protection rating of at least IP54 to
ensure protection against accidental contact with dangerous contact voltages
and against atmospheric influence. The control cabinet should be installed in
accordance with local and national rules and regulations.
Mount the unit on a DIN rail. Mount it vertically and leave enough space between
the unit and the top and bottom of the control cabinet (to enable air circulation to
avoid excessive heating).
Prevent the penetration of conductive or other dirt during installation and wiring.
4.1  Mounting of the sensors
Adhere to the installation instructions enclosed to the sensor.

5  Electrical connection
The unit must be connected by a qualified electrician.
The national and international regulations for the installation of electrical
equipment must be adhered to.
Avoid contact with dangerous contact voltages. UK
Disconnect the whole plant from the mains supply before wiring!

►► Disconnect power
►► Connect the unit
►► To prevent negative effects on the functions caused by noise voltages, lay
sensor cables and load cables separately. Maximum length of the sensor
cable: 30 m.
Connection via Combicon connector (premounted).
The Combicon connectors are also available as accessories:
• connector with cage clamps, order no. E40171
• connector with screw terminals, order no. E40173
The outputs are short-circuit proof up to 100 mA. The outputs can be configured
as either normally closed or normally open.
In addition an analogue signal can be provided on output [OU 1] (0/4...20 mA),
e.g. acceleration values.
5.1  Limited voltage / current
According to UL508 the device shall be supplied from an isolating source having a
secondary UL-listed fuse rated
a) max 5 A for voltages 0...20 Vrms (0...28.3 Vp) or
b) 100/Vp for voltages of 20...30 Vrms (28.3...42.4 Vp).

►► Protect the supply voltage externally (max. 2A)!

The ground GND of the DC supply is directly connected with the ground
GND of the sensor supply. The SELV criteria must therefore be met for the
DC supply (safety extra-low voltage, circuit electrically isolated from other
circuits, not grounded).
If the DC circuit is to be grounded (e.g. due to national regulations),
the PELV criteria must be adhered to (safety extra-low voltage, circuit
electrically isolated from other circuits).

5.3  Connection of the sensors

►► Adhere to the SELV criteria when the sensors are connected so that no
dangerous contact voltages are applied to the sensor or transferred to the
Sensor and VSE supply are not electrically isolated.
5.3.1  Monitoring the sensor cable
In case of wire break, short circuit or faulty measuring cell:
• the analogue output [OU 1] provides 22 mA (± 2%), as from firmware 0.5.19

• the output [OU 2] clocks at 1 Hz
• the [SENS] LED flashes green
5.3.2  Ethernet connection
The RJ45 socket is used for the connection to the Ethernet; it can be configured to
10 or 100 Mbits/s (= 10 / 100 MBd).

Ethernet cables can be supplied as accessories, e.g.

cross-over cable, 2 m article no. EC2080
cross-over cable, 5 m article no. E30112

6  Operation
Up to 4 VSAxxx sensors continuously detect the acceleration at non rotating
machine surfaces (total sampling rate 100 kHz). The diagnostic electronics
receives these signals via a current interface and calculates the amplitudes of
the configured diagnosis objects. The frequency range is monitored in sequence
(multiplex mode) while the time range is monitored simultaneously.
The signal resolution is:
-- up to 16 bits in the frequency range (256 times oversampling)
-- 12 bits in the time range
• The diagnosis objects to be monitored are defined at the PC using a software
(article no. VES003) and then transferred as a parameter set to the diagnostic
electronics via the Ethernet interface (1). The diagnosis objects can be
evaluated and monitored in relation to the teach value (reference value) or
referred to an absolute limit value.
• As an option the diagnostic electronics calculates in addition the effective and
the maximum values of the acceleration or the vibration velocity. Evaluation
and monitoring are effected on the basis of absolute limit values without
reference value e.g. to ISO 10816.
• The highest value and/or the average value of each diagnosis object within a
freely selectable interval are stored in the history memory with time stamp.
• Alarm states of the set diagnosis objects can be displayed on up to 2 digital
-- Individual alarms can be logically linked.
-- OU 1 can also be used as an analogue output (e.g. for transferring the total
• At the same time the diagnostic electronics displays the operating status for
each sensor by multi-colour LEDs.
• The counters can be triggered via the applied process categories. In addition
the alarm thresholds of the diagnosis objects can control the state counter. The
counter values are read and displayed with the respective history files.
• To take into account the differences of the trigger level at various points of
operation for variable operation at high rotational speed and load fluctuations, UK
monitoring of the diagnosis objects can either be restricted to one point of
operation (e.g. load and rotational speed window) or the alarm limits can be set
independently of the load and rotational speed.
• The VSE002 diagnostic electronics can be used with fixed and variable
speeds. For a correct diagnosis at variable rotational speed the current speed
has to be provided via a 0/4...20 mA current loop, an HTL pulse signal (IN 1, IN
2) of the diagnostic electronics. As an option another operational unit (e.g. for
load) can be used for the evaluation.
