Product description

Monitoring of operating times on all machines and devices

This vibration counter simply and automatically adds up the hours of use of machines. The sum of the operating hours is the basis for the decision about service activities, warranty claims, etc.

Works on any machine

The VibroCounter can be used on any vehicles and machines that are moved during operation or generate vibrations. The necessary intensity of the movement can be set during commissioning.

Robust and waterproof hour meter

The robust housing without externally accessible sealing surfaces guarantee reliable operation under all operating conditions.

Absolutely tamper-proof

The VibroCounter works completely without external sensors. The meter is fixed to the machine during mounting, 2 screws are secured with a clearly numbered seal. Thereafter, zeroing, setting parameters or removing the batteries are only possible by a visible violation of the lead-seal.

FAQ - Frequently asked questions

For which machines is the VibroCounter suitable?

As an operating hours counter, the VibroCounter is basically suitable for all machines and devices that are moved during operation or that generate vibrations during operation on the stand (eg log splitter).

How is the installation done?

You screw the supplied mounting plate to the machine. Then mount the meter on the mounting plate and attach the seal.

How does the AgriCounter detect the movements of the machine?

The VibroCounter does not work with a simple motion sensor that responds only to vibrations but with a modern 3-axis accelerometer. In addition to vibrations of the machine, this sensor can also detect changes in direction of the machine in all three levels. The VibroCounter therefore detects movements with maximum reliability without vibrations, for example on sprung transport vehicles.

Where is the operating hours counter mounted? (Mode A)

The VibroCounter can be mounted anywhere on the machine. Of course, a sheltered and accessible location should be chosen. The position of the meter is not important for this application, a horizontal mounting is useful due to the better readability of the display.

Can I see on the display if the time is being counted?

Yes, when the wave-line icon is lit, hours are counted.

How does the meter react to short vibrations (for example: attachment process)?

Basically, the counter starts counting immediately with a sufficiently large vibration or movement. Thereafter, however, it is waited whether further movements follow within the set bridging time (standard setting 20 seconds). If not, the time is not counted and the counter returns to its initial state. When movements follow, the time from the first move is counted. With this logic, such movements that do not represent use of the machine are filtered out.

How can the settings be changed?

Basically, the default settings of the AgriCounters are already set appropriately for most applications. In order to change settings anyway, the housing must be opened and with the inside buttons the settings menu is called up to change the appropriate parameters. This usually happens during assembly before the meter is sealed. A subsequent possibility for the user to change a setting without destroying the seal is not possible.

Can the AGRETO VibroCounter be reset to "0"?

Yes, but only over the keys inside the case. For the user, zeroing is thus not possible without visible damage to the seal. The owner may be able to zero the meter at the start of the season or when changing the meter to another machine, but must then attach a new seal afterwards.

How many seals are included?

With each device 5 clearly numbered seals are supplied, if necessary, further seals are available as spare parts.

How long do the batteries last?

The batteries last about 5 years. If the battery symbol lights up on the display, the batteries should be replaced.

Can the batteries be changed?

Yes, the seal must be destroyed and the device must be opened. Then a new seal is attached.

Can other batteries or batteries with a higher power be used?

All AAA size batteries can be used.

Why are no high-quality batteries (e.g. lithium-ion) supplied?

Special batteries are dangerous goods and there are many regulations and restrictions during shipping. Taking these requirements into account would make country-specific versions necessary and would make the product unnecessarily expensive.

Does the device counts the operating hours when the battery symbol lights up?

Yes, as long as there is an indication on the display, the counter continues to operate normally. If there is no longer any indication on the display, there is no counting. In this transition phase, the counting can be unreliable and cannot be guaranteed.

Are the operating hours and other data on the meter saved when the battery is empty or is replaced?

Yes, the data is saved in a permanent memory, the meter continues to work with the new battery with the existing data.

Can the operating hours counter be operated with an external power supply?

No, it is not intended.

Can seals be bought again?

Yes, the seals are available as accessories in a set of 10 pieces.

How can I be sure whether it is an original seal?

The original seals from Agreto have the word "AGRETO" printed on them and are clearly and consecutively numbered. If you as the landlord make a note of the seal's serial number, you can be absolutely sure whether a customer has opened the meter or tampered with the seal.
