Mounting IMx-B Unit
Mounting IMx-B Unit
Follow these steps to mount the IMx-B unit.
•
•
•
•
•
•
First, remove all the electronic parts within the IMx-B stainless steel box.
The IMx-B stainless steel box can be attached to the bogie with four screws. The
necessary holes to be made for the mounting are marked on the back of the box, in
each corner. Also at this time drill the holes for the cable glands needed and mount
them.
Once the holes are drilled, make sure to clean up all the metal debris within the
box.
Mount the box and make sure that it is firmly attached and properly sealed. It is
important not to affect IP classification of 66.
The mounting location shall not be exposed to unnecessary radiant heat or strong
magnetic fields.
Now set all the electronic parts back in the IMx-B stainless steel box.
Important - Remove all the electronic parts within the IMx-B stainless steel
box before drilling the holes.
Important - Make sure that there is no metal debris in the IMx-B stainless
steel box before mounting the unit.
Sensor Cables
When routing a sensor cable, it is important that the cable is firmly fixed. The cable
may never be allowed to vibrate or oscillate, since this effects the capacitance of the
cable, and thereby the measurement result.
The sensor cable may not be routed or bundled together with supply cables because it
generates strong magnetic fields.
Important - In general, all cables must be routed as far away as possible from
the high voltage cables. If this cannot be done, care should be taken to use high
quality shielded cables.
To connect IMx-B to sensors, the following sensor cable type is recommended:
•


The phase of the buffered output has been inverted on I/O board
V1.24 and later (DIP21-switch with 6 positions). (The inverted
buffered out will have the same phase as connected to an IMx 2wire input!)
Network Configuration
Each IMx-B unit must have an identity number between 1 and 255, unique to the
database to which it is connected. It also requires network settings and the IP number
and port number of the @ptitude Observer Monitor to which it should be connected.
Keep in mind that most of the time, all IMx-B units are on the same network and
database, therefore units cannot have the same IP address or the same unit ID.
The network configuration is done through On-line Device Configurator application tool
which is a part of SKF @ptitude Monitoring Suite. For detailed information, refer to the
@ptitude Observer On-line Device Configurator User Manual.
There are two ways to configure a network and ID configuration:
•
•
By Software: is configured by the software via On-line Device Configurator.
By Hardware Switches: is done by configuring HEX rotary switches manually.
By Hardware Switches
If you have decided to configure the network manually by hardware, the following
conditions must be fulfilled.
•
•
•
•
•
The factory default configuration TCP/IP address is 10.0.0.1XY.
The first three parts of the IP address must be set at "Create IMx/MasCon16
Config" screen via On-line Device Configurator.
But the last part of the IP address will be set by the HEX rotary switches on the
IMx-B unit. For example; 10.0.0.1XY, where XY will be driven by HEX rotary
switches.
These last two digits will also form the unit ID.
The HEX rotary switches are located on the front panel, right hand side marked as
HEX1 and HEX2, above Ethernet connectors.

IMx-B Time
IMx-B has a backup power capacitor which will keep the time for at least a month if
IMx-B is disconnected from a power inlet.
To correct or set IMx-B time, use one of the following methods.
•
Automatic time synchronization
This method is preferable since IMx-B will continuously synchronize the time with
the computer that has @ptitude Observer Monitor running.
IMx-B uses a built-in function (NTP) in Windows for time synchronization.
•
In order to activate time synchronization, refer to Time Synchronization chapter in
the @ptitude Observer Installation Manual.
Manual set time
Use "Set time" function in @ptitude Observer application.

Checking sensor and sensor cabling for analogue channels
1.
Determine the unit number and channel number of the channel in question
through the measurement point information in the software and through the list of
terminal blocks.
2.
Measure the DC voltage between the sensor wires on the IMx-B terminal block
using a digital voltmeter. See the table below for the normal voltage values with
and without a connected sensor respectively.
Table 6 – 1. Normal Voltage.
Sensor type
Normal operating bias voltage Open circuit voltage (DC V)
(DC V)
Standard accelerometer
8 to 12 V
3.
+24 V
Is the voltage within the normal working range?
YES: The cabling to the sensor is probably Ok, and the sensor electronics have
normal input impedance. If the sensor signal is still not perceived to be
normal, one should try changing the sensor.
NO: Continue to step 5.
4.
Does the fault remain after changing the sensor?
YES: The fault may be in the analogue input section of the IMx-B unit. Contact SKF
Condition Monitoring Center Luleå for service and further information.
NO: Sensor fault. The sensor is defective and must be replaced.
5.
Is the voltage close to zero (typical < ±0.5 V)?
YES: There is probably a short circuit in the cable, or the sensor is defective. First,
verify that the voltage rises to normal open circuit voltage when one of the
sensor cable poles is disconnected from the terminal block of the IMx-B unit.
NO: Continue to step 9.
6.
Did the voltage rise to normal open circuit voltage?
YES: Continue to step 8.
NO: The sensor is not receiving power, continue below.
7.
Is the sensor a standard type?
YES: These are powered internally from the IMx-B unit. If the IMx-B unit does not
supply open circuit voltage with input open, then the IMx-B input is probably
damaged, or the input is not configured to supply a power feed to the sensor.
Verify the DIP switching. If DIP switching is not the problem, contact SKF
Condition Monitoring Center Luleå.
8.
6-4
The fault is in the sensor cable or the sensor. Disconnect the cable. Reconnect the
cable on the IMx-B terminal block, and again measure the voltage over these two
poles. Does the short circuit remain?
SKF Multilog On-Line System IMx-B
User Manual
Troubleshooting Guide
Component Check
YES: The sensor cable (or contact) has a short circuit. Repair the cabling.
NO: The sensor is defective. Replace the sensor.
9.
Is the voltage close to the open circuit voltage (+24 V)?
YES: There is a break in the cable or the sensor is damaged. Continue to step 10.
NO: If the voltage appears to be neither within the normal working range, close to
zero, nor close to open circuit voltage, then the fault is an unusual one. First,
check that the measurement was correctly carried out, and then contact SKF
Condition Monitoring Center Luleå. Remaining faults can be due to a
damaged sensor or a damaged IMx-B input. First, disconnect one pole of the
sensor cable, and measure the open circuit voltage to verify whether the open
circuit voltage is normal. If it is normal, then the fault is probably in the
sensor, otherwise the fault is in IMx-B.
10. Disconnect the connector from the sensor and short circuit the pins in the sensor
contact, and then remeasure the voltage on the IMx-B terminal block. Did the
voltage sink to close to zero (<0.5 V)?
YES: There is an internal break in the sensor, or the contact is oxidized. First, try
cleaning the contact before replacing the sensor.
NO: There is a break in the cable. Repair the cabling.
Checking sensor and sensor cabling for analogue channels from application side
1.
Determine the unit number and channel number of the channel in question
through the measurement point information in the software, or through the list of
terminal blocks.
2.
Measure the DC voltage between the sensor cable poles on the IMx-B terminal
block using a digital voltmeter.
3.
Does the terminal block have the expected voltage level (see sensor sensitivity and
the current actual value of the measured object)?
YES: The sensor and cabling are probably Ok. If the actual value is still not
perceived to be normal, then the fault is probably in the channel settings, or
there is a hardware fault in the IMx-B unit. Continue below.
NO: Continue to step 5.
4.
Check through the current settings for the channel in question in the software and
DIP switch settings. Determine the amplification, zero level, and the conversion to
the user’s unit. Furthermore, the cable check must be off. If this still does not
produce the correct actual value, then the input card is probably damaged. Contact
SKF Condition Monitoring Center Luleå.

Troubleshooting Guide
Component Check
5.
The cable or the sensor is probably damaged. Test the cabling by disconnecting at
the sensor end and connecting a battery, such as a 1.5 V battery. Does the input
now measure the voltage?
YES: The sensor is probably not functioning correctly. However, first check that the
channel is correctly configured according to the terminating resistor. In the
list of terminal blocks, it can be determined whether the channel in question
has a terminating resistor for current circuit. Check that this corresponds in
reality, and that it corresponds to the sensor’s mode of operation.
NO: The cabling is probably damaged. Continue to step 6.
6.
Cable is probably damaged. However, first try disconnecting one of the poles on
the cable from the IMx-B terminal block. If the voltage is Ok, then the fault is in the
IMx-B unit input stage. Otherwise, the cable is damaged and needs to be repaired.
7.
Does the fault remain after replacing the sensor?
YES: The fault can be in the analogue input part of the IMx-B unit. Contact SKF
Condition Monitoring Center Luleå.
NO: It is a sensor fault. Replace the sensor.
Checking speed input
1.
Determine the unit number and speed input of the channel in question through the
software measurement point setting and through the list of terminal blocks.
2.
Measure the signal on the IMx-B terminal block using an oscilloscope or similar.
Make sure to use a potential free oscilloscope.
3.
Is there an expected speed signal on the IMx-B terminal block?
YES: The signal can be too weak or at too high impedance for the IMx-B speed
input to be triggered. Sufficient voltage amplitude (peak to peak) is shown in
the electrical specifications. If the signal level is sufficient, then the IMx-B
input is defective or the software is incorrectly configured. Check the settings
in the program for the unit number and input number of the speed
measurement point. Contact SKF Condition Monitoring Center Luleå for
consultation.
NO: The cable is damaged, or the sensor is not sending the correct output signal.
Check that the installation of the sensor is correct (is the machine rotating?).
If this produces no result, check the cable. The entire chain from cable to
input can be tested by linking a signal generator with a suitable frequency and
amplitude at the sensor end. However, note that IMx-B normally supplies
power to a sensor (as shown in the equipment list), which is why a coupling
capacitor must then be connected in series, to avoid ruining the signal
generator.

Checking relay signal
1.
Determine the unit number of the alarming channel through the software
measurement point setting and though the list of terminal blocks.
2.
Carefully check to see if the relay output caused to trip the machines. Measure the
voltage between the alarm relay poles.
3.
Has the relay been activated (voltage approximately 12 V)?
YES: The fault is in the cabling or output connections from IMx-B.
NO: Check the software configuration for measurement point settings to find out
whether the channel in question is allowed to activate the alarm relay. If this
is not the case, then change the setting. Contact SKF Condition Monitoring
Center Luleå, if the channel is permitted to activate the relay, but does not do
so.
