Sensor Plus App for Easy Machine Monitoring

March 20, 2019
Portable sensor and intuitive mobile app from SKF puts simplified inspection, machine health data collection and expert analysis within easy reach.

The combination provides an entry point to a preventive maintenance program and requires no specialized training or expertise. It provides a real-time indication of machine health, plus the reassurance of connecting with experts if needed, allowing users to quickly monitor rotating equipment and machine health to predict issues and improve reliability before operations are impacted. For more advanced analysis, users can request an SKF Pulse Check directly via the app. The request goes to an company diagnostics center where experts remotely analyze the machine data and respond with recommended corrective actions to improve equipment performance, if required. The system has an intuitive visual interface that guides users through the data collection process; users enter asset information that automatically configures alarm thresholds based on ISO standards. Thresholds can also be customized if desired. The sensor features velocity, acceleration and temperature measurement of rotating equipment; Bluetooth communication with iOS mobile devices; rugged industrial design — drop test of six feet and water- and dust-resistant (IP65); and a rechargeable lithium battery with eight hours normal usage. Unlimited assets can be monitored with one sensor. For extra scalability, more sensors can be added as part of a broader vibration analysis program. Data and asset information can be shared throughout the facility.
