Thank you for your post. You can use the voltage or the voltage-ohm nodes with process current resistors to measure overall vibrarion from IMI-Sensors or Wilcoxon. I have attached a brief summary of the components of a system with links to sensors, recommended WSN nodes, and LabVIEW programming tools.

The sensor in your summary is velocity sensor, not accelerometer sensor.
Now in our Lab, we use the accelerometer sensor such as link below
The output of the sensor is voltage, not current. So, whether can I connect this accelerometer sensor to the node WSN 3226 ?, and do I need any special connector ... ?

The accelerometer you reference is a high bandwidth accelerometer and will require much higher sampling rate than available with the WSN product line. You may want to consider a low cost CompactRIO system with a wireless gateway of sorts. Consider the brief overview in the attached pdf.
