The AuroVibe vibration meter is equipped with an alarm module that sends a warning or alarm via SMS or email if a preset value is exceeded. This can be set and activated for a single user as well as a group. Settings can be combined with a logbook, and alarms can be monitored to record the data and users associated with an alarm. In addition, errors or faults in the measuring system are shown. When alert threshholds are exceeded, warnings and/or alarms can be visually transmitted via the Internet interface for immediate identification.
