Product Overview
SKF @ptitude Analyst Thin Client Transfer (TCT) provides Data Acquisition services
for remote workstations that do not require an @ptitude Analyst installation. Thin
Client Transfer is a small application that deploys very easily and facilitates data
transfer to and from Microlog Analyzer and MARLIN Data Acquisition Devices (DADs),
without using the @ptitude Analyst interface.
The Thin Client Transfer has two modes of communication:
Direct communication with an @ptitude Analyst database – This method uses the
SKF @ptitude Analyst Transaction Server to transfer data directly to / from the
@ptitude Analyst database, bypassing the @ptitude Analyst application interface.
This is primarily used for thin client network environments (e.g., a Citrix
environment) or for clients on a network with low bandwidth (including satellite
connections).
File Transfer – This method allows users to transfer data via a file, without
requiring a direct connection between the Microlog Analyzer or MARLIN DAD and the
computer hosting @ptitude Analyst. This is primarily used when data collection
occurs at a remote location without an @ptitude Analyst installation.

Launching @ptitude Analyst Thin Client Transfer
Thin Client Transfer Licenses
Thin Client Transfer File CMSW 7320 (file transfer mode) and Thin Client Transfer
Direct CMSW 7321 (direct database communication mode) products are licensed
separately. Each license specifies the number of remote computers that may upload
data to @ptitude Analyst. Once you upload data from your DAD, one of the licenses
for that upload method is permanently tied to the computer that was used to either
perform the upload or generate the upload file.
Licenses are validated during upload using the Transaction Server to which the Thin
Client Transfer installation connects. You do not need to enter license keys at each
location where Thin Client Transfer is installed; rather, licenses are entered using the
License Key Manager on the computer hosting the Transaction Server.
If you have one license key file on your network that is shared by multiple
installations of @ptitude Analyst, you may enter the Thin Client Transfer licenses in
the License Key Manager at any @ptitude Analyst installation. If each installation
uses its own license file, you must enter the keys on the computer hosting the
Transaction Server referenced by Thin Client Transfer, as specified during the Thin
Client Transfer installation procedure.
 By default, license key files are stored on the local computer. If you
would like to place a copy of the license key file on the network
where it can be shared by multiple installations, use the File / Use
File… menu option in the License Key Manager at each @ptitude
Analyst installation.
 If the Thin Client Transfer license key was entered during
installation of the Transaction Server host, no further action is
required. If it was not already entered, you may enter the key at
any time using the License Key Manager.
If you require additional licenses, contact your SKF Condition Monitoring sales
representative.
Launching @ptitude Analyst Thin Client Transfer
When SKF @ptitude Analyst Thin Client Transfer is installed, it creates a shortcut in
the SKF @ptitude Monitoring Suite program group.
To launch Thin Client Transfer:


Select the Windows’ Start menu’s SKF @ptitude Monitoring Suite group.
Select SKF @ptitude Analyst Thin Client Transfer.
During Thin Client Transfer installation, you specify the machine name and port for
the Transaction Server that should be used for communication with @ptitude
Analyst. During login, the Thin Client Transfer application searches for a Transaction
Server using this information and attempts to make a connection with your @ptitude
Analyst database. If the Transaction Server is not found (i.e., you are launching from
a remote location), a message displays asking if you would like to continue in Offline
mode.


Direct Database Communication
Overview
SKF @ptitude Analyst Thin Client Transfer Direct (CMSW 7321) provides database
communication that allows data to be uploaded to and downloaded from a Microlog
Analyzer or MARLIN DAD from a remote client computer by directly connecting with
the @ptitude Analyst database via an optimized connection using the SKF
Transaction Server. This is primarily used for thin client network environments (e.g.,
a Citrix environment) or for clients on a network with low bandwidth (including
satellite connections).
 You must log into Thin Client Transfer from a computer with access
to the Transaction Server to use this option.
 Upload and download functionality using Thin Client Transfer is
almost identical to upload and download functionality using the
@ptitude Analyst interface.

Thin Client Transfer Database Communication on a Microlog
Analyzer
The Microlog Analyzer transfer function allows you to download measurement
POINT setups to the Microlog Analyzer, upload collected data from the Microlog
Analyzer, check the Microlog Analyzer status, and configure, clear, or reset the
Microlog Analyzer.
The Microlog Analyzer features three ways to communicate with Thin Client
Transfer:
Serial
Modem
USB
It is important to note that some options only transfer when communicating via USB.
If you use a serial or modem connection, the following information is not transferred:



Orbit SCL, Triax (3-channel), and 2-channel type POINTs are only
transferred to or from the DAD when using the USB connection.
Multiple-measurement data (i.e., data from a single POINT that produces
multiple measurements) is only uploaded to @ptitude Analyst from the DAD
using the USB connection.
You may only transfer data to or from an AX Series Microlog Analyzer using
the USB connection.
 POINTs with greater than 6400 lines of resolution or an end
frequency greater than 2400 kCPM are only supported on the AX
Series Microlog Analyzer using the USB connection. If these
POINTs are transferred to a non- AX Series Microlog Analyzer, the
lines and end frequency will be set back to the maximum supported
by the unit.
If you have configured any of these POINT types or settings, you must use a USB
connection when transferring data to or from the Microlog Analyzer to include these
options.

File Transfer
Process Overview
SKF @ptitude Analyst Thin Client Transfer File (CMSW 7320) provides a file
communication feature that allows you to upload and download data using files
created on remote systems, without requiring a direct connection of the Microlog
Analyzer or MARLIN DAD to the computer hosting @ptitude Analyst. This is
generally used in situations where data collection occurs at a different location than
data analysis using @ptitude Analyst.
Use the following sequence of steps when performing file transfer:
1)
On a computer with access to your @ptitude Analyst database, use Thin
Client Transfer’s File <-->DB option to create a file (*.dskf) containing your
data collection POINTs.
2) Send that file (e.g., via e-mail) to a computer with access to the Data
Acquisition Device (DAD) at the remote site.
3) Connect the DAD to that computer and use Thin Client Transfer’s DAD <-->
File option to download the ROUTE to the DAD.
4) Collect the measurements on the DAD.
5) Connect the DAD to the computer with Thin Client Transfer and use the
DAD <--> File option to upload the resulting measurements to a file
(*.uskf).
6) Send that file (e.g., via e-mail) to the computer with access to the @ptitude
Analyst database.
7) On the computer with access to the @ptitude Analyst database, use Thin
Client Transfer’s File <-->DB option to upload the collected measurements
to the database.
File Transfer to / from an @ptitude Analyst Database
File transfer to and from an @ptitude Analyst database allows you to create a file
with data collection POINTs that may be transferred to your remote site. Once data
has been collected, it also allows you to upload resulting measurements back into
@ptitude Analyst.
 In order to use this feature, you must have a connection with an
SKF @ptitude Transaction Server. Refer to Launching @ptitude
Analyst Thin Client Transfer, earlier in this manual, for details.

Establishing Communication with the DAD
Before transferring data to or from the Microlog Analyzer or MARLIN, you must
connect the DAD and ensure the communication settings are identical between the
Thin Client Transfer application and the connected DAD.
Accessing Thin Client Transfer’s File Transfer on a Microlog Analyzer
The Microlog Analyzer features three ways to communicate with Thin Client
Transfer:
Serial
Modem
USB
It is important to note that some options only transfer when communicating via USB.
If you use a serial or modem connection, the following information is not transferred:



Orbit SCL, Triax (3-channel), and 2-channel type POINTs are only
transferred to or from the DAD when using the USB connection.
Multiple-measurement data (i.e., data from a single POINT that produces
multiple measurements) is only uploaded to @ptitude Analyst from the DAD
using the USB connection.
You may only transfer data to or from a Microlog Analyzer AX using the USB
connection.
 POINTs with greater than 6400 lines of resolution or an end
frequency greater than 2400 kCPM are only supported on the
Microlog Analyzer AX using the USB connection. If these POINTs
are transferred to a non-AX Microlog Analyzer, the lines and end
frequency will be set back to the maximum supported by the unit.
If you have configured any of these POINT types or settings, you must use a USB
connection when transferring data to or from the Microlog Analyzer to include these
options.
To Set Up the Microlog Analyzer for Data Transfer:

