A vibration monitoring system is a set of tools used to protect workers, nearby inhabitants, and historic structures from the detrimental effects of vibrations. These systems utilise sensors to continuously track ground movements. If the detected vibrations exceed predefined acceleration thresholds, an alarm is triggered to alert the operator. There are various systems available, ranging from single point to multi-point setups, and from portable to wireless configurations. Such monitoring systems have become indispensable for contractors, helping them minimise risks, conserve time, and uphold their reputations.

Wireless vibration monitoring equipment, such as the SV 803, is an essential tool for long-term projects in industries such as construction, mining and transportation.
