Condition Monitoring System Provides 24/7 Measurements
SKF’s Multilog IMx online monitoring systems equip users with a 24/7 monitoring, providing timely and true simultaneous measurements of various operating parameters to guide in improving machine reliability, availability and performance. All IMx systems are engineered to detect faults early, integrate automatic recognition to correct existing or impending conditions and ultimately contribute to condition-based maintenance program objectives.
IMx technology additionally offers an opportunity to convert and upgrade outdated systems and interface with compatible SKF @ptitude Analyst and Observer software to realize a highly comprehensive approach to condition monitoring.
IMx systems include units for extremely tough industrial environments and models designed specifically for turbo machinery, wind turbine, vehicle or railway applications, as well as portable versions ideally suited for temporary installations and troubleshooting.
Depending on model, SKF Multilog IMx units incorporate 16, 32, or 64 analog signal inputs configurable for a variety of sensors to ascertain acceleration, velocity and displacement, among other parameters, such as acceleration enveloping. Individual warning and alarm levels controlled by machine speed or load can be set for each measurement point and built-in auto-diagnosis can check all sensors, cabling, and electronics for any faults, signal interruption, shorts, or power failure and then automatically alert when problems are found.
