OMEGA Expands Sensor Offerings Through a Strategic Partnership With B&K Vibro
NORWALK, Conn., January 19, 2021 (Newswire.com) - Furthering its dedication as a global leader in the technical marketplace, OMEGA announces a strategic partnership with Brüel & Kjær Vibro, a worldwide leader of high-quality vibration sensors (acceleration, velocity, and displacement), vibration monitors, handhelds and rack-based plant-wide integrated monitoring solutions.
Through this partnership, OMEGA is able to further its mission to provide a cultivated offering of sensor and monitoring solutions to its customers. On its ecommerce site, OMEGA has made available 27 B&K Vibro products that can be integrated into comprehensive monitoring systems for use in industrial applications.
"There is a natural synergy to this partnership. In offering these other sensor types, we are able to unlock opportunities for our customers, especially in industrial power generation, wind turbines, HVAC, and food and beverage," says Autumn Hill, Product Manager at OMEGA. "The upside for our customers is new sensors can be used to facilitate predictive maintenance, enabling them to optimize pumps, gearboxes, and other machinery so they can service at the right time, and they won't waste money replacing parts too early or have to shut down because they waited too long."
For B&K Vibro, the advantage of the partnership gives them a digital commerce sales channel to offer their products to customers.
"For our industry, it's not common to buy products online, so we don't currently have the in-house capability to sell our products through a digital channel," says Florian Endres, Product Manager at B&K Vibro. "This pilot project with OMEGA gives us an opportunity to expand our web sales through OMEGA's digital commerce channel and take a more customer-oriented marketing approach."
The B&K Vibro sensors available on OMEGA's website are easy to use, versatile, and based on a modular design, allowing the sensors to easily integrate into a larger monitoring system. Key use cases for these sensors include predictive maintenance, product testing, destructive testing, transportation, and motor diagnostics.
OMEGATM (part of Spectris PLC) is an established global leader in the technical marketplace, offering more than100,000 state-of-the-art products for measurement and control of temperature, humidity, pressure, strain, force, flow, level, pH, and conductivity.
