Info & Background
Welcome! We’re delighted that you have made it this far and is interested in the ReLog and its capabilities. By this point, you have found your way into our resource center where you will find all relevant documentation that we have created for the ReLog – all for your convenience.
Why have we introduced the ReLog?
ReVibe has since its founding been active within the world of vibration energy harvesting. And whenever a potential customer asks us about whether or not we can produce a certain level of output our answer will be: It depends on the vibration.
But as true as that might be, it’s not the most customer-oriented answer. The second-best alternative is to assist the customer in acquiring the vibration data which we then can utilize to optimize our units.
However, all the instruments available in the marketplace were either too expensive or lacking in quality. For us to be able to replay the vibration profile on our shaker to replicate the real-life-environment, we need a sample rate of at least 10,000 Hz. We were also in need of a fairly long battery life as well as a large internal storage so all the measurement data could be stored properly. And we couldn’t seem to find such a device to a reasonable price on the market.
So, we decided to build the product ourselves – and now we couldn’t be happier when offering it to you!
From our lab to the market - where is the need for a vibration data logger?
Beyond our own and our customers need to record the vibrations for vibration energy harvesting purposes we discovered there are so many out there that are looking for a vibration and shock data logger with long battery life, high sampling rates and large onboard memory. A few examples of applications are:
- Product development & product evaluation
- Failure mode analysis
- Transportation monitoring
- Qualification testing
- Vibration monitoring
- Shock monitoring
- Condition monitoring (semi-real time monitoring)
- Machine health monitoring
- Building management
- Facilitiy management
- Industrial plants and processes
- Defense & military
- Product development
- and many more…
Developing the product - a typical product development process
From having confirmed the need on the market to having assessed the current solutions that already were on the market, we got to work by developing the ReLog.
And as everyone who has been involved in a product development process knows, it’s filled with setbacks and challenges that has to be solved along the way. All in all, the process took about 18 months from the very first prototype to having a fully certified product that we are proud to ship to our first clients.
