SKF recently launched the SKF Wireless MicroVibe that allows users to safely, quickly, and easily assess any problems with their machinery.
In conjunction with a tablet or smart phone, the new SKF Wireless MicroVibe provides the functionality of basic vibration data collection and analysis. This portable, compact, and lightweight versatile tool is the perfect entry-level, cost-efficient solution for machine vibration measurements, root cause analysis, and small route-based data collection.
“The wireless sensor will help our customers assess data in a much easier and quicker way than other comparable technology on the market. Anyone who owns a tablet can check the condition of a machine to ISO standards or bearing condition or by user defined alarms,” says Torsten Bark, SKF product line manager. “They can even start a simple condition monitoring program for their rotating machinery.”
The SKF Wireless MicroVibe, CMVL 4000-EN, allows multi-point automation for faster data collection. The data collected, assessed, and stored includes enveloped acceleration, acceleration, velocity, and displacement, in both FFT spectrum and time waveform displays.
Should vibration measurements trigger an alarm, FFT spectrum analysis enables engineers to pinpoint problems such as unbalance, misalignment, bearing, or any other cause. Transferring all this vibration data to a computer, it will also store and recall measurements for trending and further analysis.
