Microelectromechanical systems accelerometers have opened new possibilities for vibration monitoring of a rotating machinery. They enable mounting accelerometers directly to the rotating component of the machine, e.g., shaft. This enables not only the measurement of a lateral vibration but also a torsional vibration of the machine. This increases the vibration data gathered from the machine by one measurement instrument. This article presents an on-shaft wireless universal measurement unit (UMU) with innovative combination of features, such as a high measurement range and easy mounting. The UMU has a two-sensor configuration where two accelerometers are mounted to the opposite sides of a shaft. This enables to utilize a novel signal processing method to separate torsional and lateral vibration from the data. The signal processing method combines and modifies methods presented in the published literature. The results presented in this article demonstrate that the UMU together with the presented signal processing method can measure frequencies of torsional and lateral vibration accurately. However, the amplitude comparison between the UMU and reference sensors cannot be done adequately because they are measuring either different components of the machine or different physical properties.
