Vibration Monitoring Equipment

Vibration is our core business, our passion and our speciality.

We continue to design, manufacture and provide leading-edge blast and vibration monitoring systems, and we have invested in the continual improvement of our vibration equipment to ensure that it is in line with global standards, industry requirements and emerging technical developments.

We offer two vibration monitoring products: our GTM (General Texcel Monitor) and our ETM (Environmental Texcel Monitor):

Environmental Texcel Monitor

Texcel ETM Texcel ETM Texcel ETM PI

Texcel’s ETM delivers unmatched monitoring versatility in one rugged, self contained instrument.

The ETM‘s robust design makes it ideal for use in harsh environments and can be used for unattended operation on long or short term monitoring applications.

The ETM accommodates a large choice of sensors and accessories, is simple to set up and, of course, is backed by Texcel’s service and experience.

General Texcel Monitor

We have packed a lot of power and ease of use into the GTM.  This system gives our clients access to a solid robust system that can be used in a range of applications and environments.

Whether it’s baseline monitoring on a construction project, compliance monitoring for a blast or near-field diagnostic work where sampling is in excess of 20,000 samples a second, the GTM is up for the challenge.
