SKF Microlog
Analyzer AX
Advanced data collector/FFT analyzer
The SKF Microlog Analyzer AX is the most
advanced large screen analyzer offered
by SKF today. The AX’s features allow
you to capture a wide range of vibration
data quickly.
The analyzer provides the flexibility to
support the applications that are most
important to your company’s specific
predictive maintenance program.
Key features
• Simultaneous triaxial or 4-channel
measurements for fast data collection
• 806 MHz Xscale processor means faster
real time rate and display updates
• Rugged, dust /water-proof IP65 design for reliability in industrial environments
• Rechargeable lithium battery supports
8 hours of continuous data collection
• Large 6.4" VGA color display for easy
viewing and analysis in any light
Combines with SKF @ptitude
software for in-depth analysis
and reporting
SKF Microlog AX connects seamlessly with SKF
@ptitude Analyst 4.1 software for single users
and can be networked facility-wide using SKF
@ptitude Monitoring Suite. The addition of
SKF @ptitude Decision Support allows communication with your facility’s CMMS or EAM
system and automates reliability maintenance
decision making by identifying probable faults
and prescribing appropriate action.
SKF Microlog AX is a full-featured, 4-channel, high performance
route and off-route portable data collector / FFT analyzer.
Application modules to customize
SKF Microlog AX
The SKF Microlog AX has a modular design to
allow users to select application modules to
suit their individual requirements.
• AX-M model – 4-channel off-route /
2-channel or simultaneous triaxial route
Analysis and 2-channel Balancing modules
are already installed. The AX-M is upgradable
to the AX-S or AX-F.
• AX-S model – All the features of the
AX-M with the Bump Test and Data Recorder
modules added.
• AX-F model – Further enhances capability
by adding Run up Coast down (RuCd),
Frequency Response Function (FRF) and
Check to Conformance modules.
All modules can also be ordered separately.
SKF Microlog Analyzer AX
The AX takes the difficulty out of
performing condition monitoring by
analyzing vibration signal and process
variables using 4-channel off-route
measurements and one or two plane
static or dynamic couple balancing
applications over a range of 10 CPM
(0,16 Hz) to 4,800,000 CPM (80 kHz).
Bearing assessments are carried out
using the industry proven SKF
Acceleration Enveloping (gE) technology.
The AX utilizes the latest advances in
analog and digital electronics, including
digital signal processing (DSP) and high
resolution Sigma-Delta A/D converters,
to provide both speed and accuracy in
the data collection process.
Powerful software to complete
your analysis system
SKF @ptitude Analyst provides fast,
efficient and reliable storage, analysis
and retrieval of complex machine data
and makes the information accessible
throughout your organization.
• Easy to learn and use for novice or experienced users
• Inter-connectivity with other
software programs and systems
• Preference options let SKF @ptitude Analyst work the way you work
SKF Microlog AX provides fast data collection
and analysis. The large screen facilitates viewing
in any light.
SKF @ptitude Analyst is part of the SKF
@ptitude Monitoring Suite, a comprehensive software suite that integrates data
from a wide range of SKF portable and
on-line acquisition devices.
Bump Test module
A bump or rap test is an impact test
carried out to excite the machine
and measure its natural frequencies.
This helps to determine if resonance
is responsible for high noise or
vibration levels or if there is a potential
machinery problem.
Recorder module
Signals from sensors connected to the
AX are digitally recorded and stored as
standard WAV files. These files can be
sent via email or transferred directly
to SKF @ptitude Analyst for postprocessing. Using the storage capacity
of SD cards allows a user to record
many hours of continuous raw data.
Frequency Response Function
The FRF module establishes properties
of mechanical structures (mass, stiffness
and damping) by performing modal
analysis using a calibrated hammer.
Measurements can be exported
to calculate and animate the mode
shapes. The module also measures
the transfer function (ratio) between
two transducers while a machine
is running. Measurements can be
exported to calculate and animate the
Operating Deflection Shapes (ODS).
Run up Coast down module
This module analyzes data from
machines where noise or vibration
levels are changing with speed, time or
load (applications that cause transient
phenomena) to establish the critical /
resonant speeds of a machine. The
module simultaneously acquires a noise
or a vibration signal plus a tachometer
signal and stores the data as a time
waveform (a WAV file) for further analysis.
Check to Conformance module
The conformance check functionality
transforms the AX into a tool for
everyday inspection and maintenance
routines. An automated assessment
compares vibration levels with
established limits and a pass or fail
indication is displayed to check that
the product complies with predefined
quality indicators or required standards.
