VMS-200S Field Operations

The VMS-200S is configured for operation using the supplied WIN200S program for Windows. The trigger source, trigger level and record time are selected using the WIN200S software, and then downloaded to the VMS-200S through the serial port using the included communications cable. The configuration (setup) of the VMS-200S is stored in non-volatile memory so that the unit can be operated without bringing the PC into a dirty and possible hazardous environment. Field operations are extremely easy, so that even an operator unfamiliar with the instrument can be trained in just a few minutes. After connecting the microphone and installing the spikes, turn the VMS-200S on and press the MONITOR switch. When a vibration or sound land triggers the instrument, the resulting digital data is automatically stored in the non-volatile memory of the VMS-200S, and the instrument returns to monitoring the input signals until the trigger level is reached again. After monitoring is finished, press the ENTER key to discontinue monitoring. When convenient, connect the VMS-200S to your PC and download the information using WIN200S Software for permanent storage. The VMS-200S can also be a stand alone unit, having the ability to recall the last 100 events.

WIN200S Software Operations

WIN200S software is an easy-to-use and powerful program for analyzing and printing data collected with the VMS-200S. It integrates functions into one easy-to-use Windows environment. WIN200īs integrated functions include:

  • VMS-200S configuration and control
  • Serial communications
  • High resolution printing on hundreds of printers
  • Seismographs log keeping
  • Binary to ASCII data conversion
  • In-depth data analysis

The WIN200S software provides a complete peak motion analysis including:

  • Peak particle velocity and frequency
  • Acceleration
  • Displacement at the peak for each of the three seismic channel
  • Peak vector sum
  • Peak sound pressure level

Visual Analysis capabilities include waveform display with scroll and zoom, and time referencing. Analytical capabilities provide for both OSM Alternative Criteria Analysis and Fourier analysis. The WIN200S software is so easy to use that report printing and log keeping are now secretarial functions.
