Vibration analysis Description
The application analyzes the data from the phone's accelerometer and builds a vibration spectrum. This allows the evaluation of not only the strength and frequency of the vibration, but also the speed of rotation of various mechanisms: fans, motors, various rotating components; since the vibration frequency often (but not always) coincides with the frequency of rotation. The application will be useful in determining the quality of fans and motors, in determining whether their actual parameters coincide with the ones declared by the manufacturer, it will find its uses in monitoring of malfunctions (e.g. in bearings) or while testing the quality of assembly and balancing of the homemade mechanisms with rotating parts.

Do not expose your iPhone to an excessive vibration, as it may break. If the analyzed vibration is too strong, use a foam material pad, or put your iPhone at a distance where the force of the vibration is not dangerous to your device. In addition to decreasing vibration for the iPhone, a foam pad improves contact between the iPhone and the vibrating part, which makes the transmission of vibration more accurate and produces better results.


Features of the full version of the application:
• The choice of units of measurement. X-axis: Hz or RPM. Y-axis: g, m/s², ft/s², mm/s, in/s (ips), mm, mil, dB(A), dB(V).
• FFT size (for built-in accelerometer): 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, 2048, 4096 (data collection time from 0.64 sec. to 40 sec.). For an accelerometer connected to the headphone jack FFT size from 2048 to 131072. For Bluetooth- accelerometer FFT size from 1024 to 65536.
• Linear and logarithmic frequency scale.
• Linear frequency scale with maximum details (there is a choice for the displayed frequency range).
• Peak frequency detection.
• Values of any point (for linear frequency scale, octave bands and vibration wave (at maximum detail)).
• Selecting which axis of the accelerometer is to collect data.
• Octave bands (1/1, 1/3, 1/6, 1/12).
• Window functions (Blackman, Hamming, Hann (Hanning), Blackman–Nuttall, Sine window).
• Peak hold.
• Taking a screenshot by lightly touching the screen.
• Root mean square (RMS, for vibration) or average value (AVG, for absolute values) for vibration wave. Values are calculated only for data displayed on the screen.
• Calibration of the built-in accelerometer. Need EXCLUSIVELY for measuring absolute acceleration values (gravitational acceleration). For vibration measurement, the data obtained during calibration are NOT USED. To activate the settings, turn on the "Vibration wave" mode and turn off the "Only fluctuations" mode. The parameters of the accelerometer depend on the temperature and voltage of the battery, and may change over time. To obtain stable values, the accelerometer should work for several minutes.
• Saving the measurement results in the application. Files with saved data (SavedData_[date]_[time].txt) can be copied to a desktop/laptop computer or transferred to another iPhone using iTunes.
• Export data to a text ("Y=[y1 y2... yn]", "y1;y2;... yn", "x1;y1\nx2;y2;...") or WAV file. Number of points is adjusted via "FFT size". To export octaves, use "x1;y1\nx2;y2;...".
• Accelerometer connects to the headphone jack (measurement range from 5 Hz to 24000 Hz).
• A stroboscope for an external accelerometer (the feature was proposed by Todd French from Los Angeles, California).
• Bluetooth accelerometer.

When converting acceleration into speed or displacement, at 0-5 Hz frequencies noise starts prevailing over vibration peaks, which is why such frequencies are disregarded when doing the conversion. Should vibration frequency exceed 50 Hz, the peak will be recorded at an incorrect frequency, and hence speed or displacement will not be calculated correctly. Unrealistically high speed or large displacement may be a sign of this kind of false frequency.
