Leading-Edge Real Time Snapshot


Cornell Pulse, is an innovative way to measure pump vibration severity and temperature in real time—the unit itself is a small (less than 2” diameter) pump-mounted Bluetooth enable device that takes pump readings when queried by the end-user. That query comes through a mobile app for phones and tablets that measures temperature and vibration on the pump when the app is initiated. This allows detection of common pump problems, as long as the end-user is recording conditions.

The name Pulse refers to checking the pump’s health right away. Designed to be robust, wash-down duty, Pulse can last three years with daily measurements (more frequent measurements use battery power and reduce service life.)

Cornell Pulse allows you to:

  • Monitor pump health onsite
  • Distinguish / rename pumps for greater clarity in multiple pump installations
  • Use onboard power for up to five years for consistent, accurate readings
  • Measure pump vibration severity
  • Gauge bearing frame temperature
