Falcon Balancer and Vibration Analyzer

USE AND APPLICATIONS
Relying on ACOEM’s 30+ years of experience in developing portable instruments for condition monitoring,
FALCON includes all the technology to perform a balancing on any set of machine in situ.
SMART BALANCER
With FALCON, It is possible to balance rotors of any size, from the simplest to the most complex
one (1 to 4-plane balancing). Using multi-channel acquisition, parallel measurements are possible
on all sensors.
FALCON Balancer includes all tools to guide the operator and control the results during the entire
balancing process:
 Easy to use with the “guided” mode
 Graphic display of measurements and weight positions
 Automatic setup of tachometer
 Trial weight estimation
 Control of the data at each step with recommendation to
improve result quality
 Rotation speed control
 Tools to split or merge weights
 Direct access to spectrum during the balancing
procedure
 Result assessment according to ISO 10816-3 and ISO
1940
 Automatic and customizable word report with histograms,
pictures and spectra.
With FALCON, the balancing of your machines is more accurate, more secure and faster.

VIBRATION ANALYZER
In addition to the main balancing module, every FALCON Balancer comes with vibration analyzer
capabilities. It is then possible to perform any vibration control in the field in matter of seconds,
using and modifying the built-in in libraries of measurements and analyzing data in the field on
FALCON large colorful touchscreen:
 Quick measurement from templates
 Easy addition and modification in the field
 Compatible with various types of inputs (Accelerometers, proximity probes…)
 Quick access to bump test
 Built-in analysis tools (access to spectrum, time waveforms, cursors…

BALANCING SPECIFICATIONS
Balancing types
FALCON allows performing 1 to 4-plane balancing. Rotors from any
size can thus be balanced, from the simplest (single-plane balancing) to
the most complex (3 or 4-plane balancing, 4-channel option required).
Measurements
Balancing using acceleration, velocity or displacement.
Measurement and compensation of Run Out if balancing using
proximity probes.
Parallel measurements (2 or 4 channels), which results in a more
accurate, more secure and faster procedure.
Rotation speed: from 12 to 288,000 RPM (from 0.2 to 4,800 Hz).
Amplitude range:
 With 100 mV/g accelerometer: acceleration: 80 g.
Measurement is also possible for vibration, velocity and
displacement
 With 8 mV/ m (200 mV/mil) proximity probe: 1.5 mm (60
mils)
Amplitude: display in physical units or dB
Phase: 4-digit display from 0 to 360° (or any other user-defined unit).
Precision: +0.5°
Results display
Indication of rotation speed in Hz or RPM
Display in measurement in table mode and in graphic polar mode
Storage in 2-level tree structure: folder/balancing
Display of trial and balancing masses in table mode and in graphic polar
mode. 3D mode for 2-plane balancing.
Metric or imperial units.
Assistance to configuration
Easy duplication of balancing with copy/paste function: for any stored
balancing, it is very easy to do a new balancing operation, by following
the previously used procedure.
Direct access to tachometric signal and configuration using an
automatic setup function.
Trial values for masses and estimated positions.
Function to distribute masses over two defined angles.
Function to merge additional masses with installed masses.
User-defined angle unit to make mass installation easier.
Assistance to measurement
Measurement with programmable averaging to decrease external
disturbance.
Display of instant value during averaging.
Balancing in a single operation using stored influence factors.
Calculation of balancing masses for any operation (with or without trial
masses).
Results reliability
Automatic control of rotation and vibration speeds dispersion to check
measurement reliability.
Display of balancing quality rating (standards ISO 1940, VDI 2060, NFE
90.600).
Display of the limits of standard ISO 10816-3
Step-by-step guiding of the user during balancing: at any moment, the
user can know where he/she is in the balancing process and follow the
guide step by step.
Balancing report
The report is generated from an entirely user-configurable template in
WORD format. It includes:
 Balancing configuration
 Summary of balancing with graphic histogram
 Picture of sensor mounting
 Comment
 Detailed results
 Spectra at the beginning and the end of balancing
Management of interruptions
Possibility to stop and resume balancing as you want
Possibility to repeat any operation without repeating the entire
procedure
