DTect-IT is a Windows application that communicates with custom Caron Engineering USB sensors to effectively monitor any area of concern on your CNC machine tool or fixture.  This versatile monitoring system is a cost-effective solution for monitoring the health of your CNC machine.  Using custom sensors for Vibration, Strain, High Resolution Power, and Analog, the user can establish a baseline of characteristics to determine when irregularities are present.


  • Operates on any Windows PC with an available USB Port
  • Runs standalone or easily integrates with the CNC control
  • Graphing and monitoring can be initialized from the user interface or the CNC control
  • User can select any connected sensors to be monitored and graphed
  • Vibration and strain sensors detect temperature which can be monitored using set limits
  • Built-in audio sensor can record and graph the data from any recognized audio device on the Windows PC


The multiple monitoring mode options allow the user to analyze their CNC machine on multiple levels.  Monitoring modes include: Limit Analysis, Spindle Bearing Analysis, Fault Detection, Frequency Analysis, and Sensor Data Collection Analysis. A single sensor can be set up to run multiple analyses.


  • Limits available for Lower (blue), Warning (yellow), and Upper (red), with adjustable sensitivity
  • Limits can be latched to ensure alarms are not missed
  • Easily detects excessive bar feeder vibration (i.e. bent bar), and signals the CNC to automatically adjust spindle RPM, if needed


  • DTect-IT measures spindle vibration to monitor bearing health for analysis
  • Vibration signal is analyzed for the (1) Acceleration signature which tells the health of the bearings, (2) Velocity signature which detects misalignment, imbalance and looseness
  • DTect-IT will display both the acceleration and velocity results within 5 seconds to let you know if attention is needed
  • Reports are automatically generated and saved for future analysis


  •  DTect-IT recognizes when set upper and lower limits are exceeded, identifying an excessive condition (i.e. machine impact,  overheating, extreme vibration)
  • Indicates and time stamps machine faults and records data on either side of the fault for analysis
  • Displays the peak value between starting and stopping

  • Set magnitude limits to monitor and detect anomalies within specific frequency bands
  • Alarms and notifications are generated when magnitude limits (in decibels) are exceeded


  • Collects raw data from any sensor and stores the data to a CSV or SQLite file for analysis
  • Set the number of data points per second to be collected (up to 62,500 points/sec)
