On-the-skid Vibration Monitoring

June 4, 2010
The Multilog On-line System DMx is a multi-featured vibration monitor for both conventional and hazardous environments. 
Awarded ATEX, IECEx, and cULus certifications, the DMx monitoring system can be directly installed within a hazardous area. “Until now, field-installed intrinsically safe vibration devices have been confined to simple transmitters that provide only basic machine health information,” says Chris James, business area director at the vendor. “The complexity of the vibration measurement has been in conflict with the power restrictions imposed by intrinsic safety. With the DMx we’ve been able to resolve this conflict and offer a vibration monitoring solution that—for the first time—allows the requirements of critical machinery monitoring, from transducer to dynamic data processing, to be fulfilled by an intrinsically safe device located on the machine skid.” Features include four dynamic input channels for vibration, axial thrust and dynamic pressure, with two channels for speed/phase measurements.SKF Group www.skf.com+44 (0) 1592.267.828
