1. A sensing module for configuring on a vibrating machine or structure, including a pump, comprising:
an outer shell configured with a recessed portion;
a base having encapsulated electronics with a multicolored light array that is arranged inside the outer shell, the multicolored light array being configured to respond to signaling containing information about a condition being sensed or monitored by the sensing module and to provide along a projection axis at least one beam of light containing information about the condition; and
a domed lens configured in the recessed portion of the outer shell, and also configured with a top curved surface, a bottom surface and two side lens portions with side surfaces to reflect, re-reflect and project the at least one beam as a lens illumination or glow having multiple beams of light rays outwardly from the domed lens in relation to the projection axis with a visibility of 360° about the sensing module.
