Inspection System Manages Data Collection From Different Plant Operations
SKF's Microlog Inspector is the company's next-generation Marlin inspection system. Building on extensive customer feedback, the new SKF Microlog Inspector system provides the ability to manage workflow and data collection within and between different plant disciplines, including operations, maintenance, safety, inspections, condition monitoring and contractors, within one mobile solution.
Compatibility with most Windows mobile portable devices means that customers can typically use existing handhelds if required. In addition, Microlog Inspector can automatically and wirelessly connect to a central server, downloading the latest routes and uploading collected data to anywhere in the world.
The new SKF Microlog Inspector links seamlessly to the SKF @ptitude Inspector software package where data can be further analyzed, reported on and shared across the plantwide SKF @ptitude asset management system. This gives customers the ability to start with an SKF Microlog Inspector system and integrate other SKF portable and on-line condition monitoring systems as required. Applications for the inspection system include work scheduling, environmental, Occupational Safety and Health Administration inspections and other regulatory and safety requirements.
The new SKF Microlog Inspector does not need to be connected directly to a PC running the SKF @ptitude Inspector software package. By supporting communication over a LAN, USB, WiFi and cellular data network (3G/GPRS) connection, Microlog Inspector can transfer data to a remote computer anywhere in the world. This also allows for the optimum management of plant personnel.
