March 4, 2019 —SKF Pulse combines an handheld sensor with a mobile app, allowing users to monitor rotating equipment and machine health to predict issues and improve reliability before operations are impacted.
For more analysis, users can request an SKF Pulse Check directly via the app. The request goes to an SKF diagnostics center where experts remotely analyze the machine data and respond with recommended corrective actions, if required.
SKF Pulse has a 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 SKF Pulse 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)
- Rechargeable lithium battery (with eight hours normal usage)
Designed for MRO managers and staff in a range of industries —including food and beverage, cement, marine, oil and gas, pulp and paper, steel, mining, chemical processing and other industries —SKF Pulse provides an entry point for a DIY preventive maintenance program.
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.
