Delivering condition monitoring benefits to wider applications

07 January 2019

SKF has launched a condition-based maintenance solution that can bring condition monitoring to applications other than the most critical assets. 

SKF has expanded its offering in condition monitoring with a compact and competitively priced system that is said to be flexible enough to be used across wide range of applications and industries. 

The Multilog IMx-16Plus aims to help users of rotating equipment reduce unplanned machine downtime, improve asset availability and optimise machinery operation.

Traditionally, condition monitoring has been restricted to the most critical assets. However, the Multilog IMx-16Plus, which is based on the SKF Multilog IMx-8, allows condition-based maintenance to be integrated into applications that would previously have been too costly to consider. With the ability to monitor everything from a single machine to an entire plant from a central location, the SKF Multilog IMx-16Plus integrates seamlessly with other devices (such as the IMx-8) to allow more extensive deployment.

The system receives condition monitoring signals – from vibration or temperature sensors – to offer early fault detection. It monitors all types of rotating assets, from pumps and motors to fans and compressors.

SKF Multilog IMx-16Plus features integrated connectivity via mobile data (GPRS and LTE) or Ethernet (RJ45 or Wi-Fi). As well as having 16 analogue inputs – typically for vibration sensors, with the option to accommodate up to eight directly connected temperature sensors, it also has four digital channels, for speed sensor inputs.
