Product Announcement from SKF/North America
The new SKF Microlog Analyzer AX features advanced vibration monitoring technology - customizable to users' specific applications.
SKF Microlog Analyzer AX, with simultaneous triaxial or 4-channel vibration measurement capability, speeds up data collection and saves time in monitoring rounds. The 806 MHz Xscale processor means faster real time rate and display updates, all viewed on the vivid 6.4" VGA color display.
This new Analyzer incorporates all the features that expert analysts have come to expect from an SKF Microlog, including the industry proven SKF Acceleration Enveloping (gE) technology. Adding to this are the capabilities of 4-channel non-route/2-channel or simultaneous triaxial route Analysis and 2-channel Balancing. The rugged IP65 rated dust- and water-proof design remains reliable in tough industrial environments while the rechargeable lithium battery supports 8 hours of continuous data collection and eliminates environmental negatives of disposing of used batteries.
Users can select from a range of application modules, creating a custom device that suits their individual requirements. Modules can be added as your needs develop, increasing the value of your hardware investment by upgrading capabilities without the need to buy a new instrument. Application modules include Balancing; Bump Analysis; Recorder; Frequency Response Function; Run up/Coast down and Check to Conformance. This range of application modules allows users to perform several advanced tasks - such as impact tests, digital recording, modal analysis, transient phenomena analysis and quality inspections - all with the same device.
Alternatively, pre-configured models (AX-M, AX-S and AX-F).are also available with a selection of loaded modules to fit various needs.
The first SKF Microlog was introduced in 1985, and the brand has grown to be one of the most widely-used vibration analysis instruments in the world. New users can benefit from the speed, accuracy and consistency of triaxial and multi-channel measurement capabilities, while advanced users can get the ultimate analysis capabilities available today all in one full-featured instrument.
