Founded in 1965 by Peter J. Sundt, Metrix traces its roots to seismic measurement technology. Initially focused on geophysical exploration, this technology also found abundant applications for vibration measurements on industrial machines. As a result, machinery condition monitoring emerged as our sole focus and has remained so for 50 years.
Metrix pioneered the concept of simple, affordable machinery protection with our mechanical vibration switch offerings, revolutionary 4-20mA vibration transmitters, robust high-temperature velocity sensors, and innovative impact transmitter technology for reciprocating machinery.
In 1998 they acquired PMC/ BETA, the world’s leading provider of electronic vibration switches. In 2007 we acquired the vibration monitoring division of Hardy Instruments and their industry-leading portable vibration calibrators.
Metrix has been ISO-9001 certified for more than 20 years, which ensures that they never lose sight of quality and continuous improvement of our manufacturing processes. They stand behind our product quality with a full 36-month warranty.
