In this thesis, a low-cost data acquisition system is designed to measure vibrations in mechanical arrays. The measurement device consists of a microcontroller which is wirelessly connected to a computer. The measured vibration data can be visualized in real time and saved for post-processing on the computer with the help of a GUI. The proposed data acquisition system is significantly cheaper compared to similar commercially available products for fault detection. The accuracy and reliability of the system was tested by measuring known synthetic vibration signals. The signals were generated by an experimental device specifically designed for the purpose of testing the proposed vibration measurement system. Experimental results indicate that the designed system can be used for the detection of a wide range of mechanical faults in rotation equipment.
