Using Wireless Headphones with Bluetooth for the CSI 2140
Reliability engineers know that listening to bearings or gear teeth during machine operation can help diagnose machine problems. Wearing headphones to listen to machine vibration through the accelerometer offers another dimension and sense to what is happening with the machine. Because the headphone wire can be cumbersome and pose a safety risk, technicians often ignore this analysis opportunity. This paper describes a wireless headphone solution that utilizes Bluetooth technology and allows users to take advantage of this easily adaptable accessory even in harsh industrial environments where hearing protection and hardhats are required.
