Sweden’s SKF Reliability Systems introduced the SKF Microlog Analyzer AX, an advanced vibration-monitoring technology. With simultaneous triaxial or four-channel vibration measurement capability, the unit speeds up data collection and saves time in monitoring rounds. The 806 MHz Xscale processor also means faster real-time rate and display updates. An available range of application modules allows users to create a custom device to perform several advanced tasks, such as impact tests, digital recording, modal analysis, transient phenomena analysis, and quality inspections.
Application modules include those for balancing, bump analysis, recorder, frequency response function, run up/coast down, and check to conformance. The unit’s rugged IP65-rated housing is dustproof and waterproof, making it well-suited for industrial environments. The rechargeable lithium battery supports 8 hours of continuous data collection.
