SKF has launched the SKF Wireless MicroVibe that allows users to safely, quickly and easily assess any problems with their machinery. The vibration assessment tool is suitable for analysing rotating equipment. Portable, compact and lightweight, this tool is easy to use and offers reliable and fast wireless data collection.
The Wireless MicroVibe can be used in conjunction with a tablet or smart phone and provides the functionality of basic vibration data collection and analysis. It is an entry level, cost effective solution for machine vibration measurements, root cause analysis and small route based data collection.
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.
Torsten Bark, SKF Product Line Manager said, ‘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. They can even start a simple condition monitoring programme for their rotating machinery with this entry level solution.’
