Route-based or stand alone
analyzer options
The SKF Microlog product line is modular
with single purpose stand-alone analyzer
options up to fully featured route-based
analyzers. SKF Microlog Analyzer with Route
and Analyzer modules can transfer data to
SKF @ptitude Analyst software for trending,
display and analysis. If data analysis results
in actionable work, a work order request can
be initiated and then transferred directly
from SKF @ptitude Analyst to CMMS or ERP
systems to assist in work order generation.
SKF @ptitude Analyst also features integration of Analysis and Recording Manager
functionality to support the SKF Microlog
modules. The stand-alone SKF Microlog
Analyzers (-A series) are designed for customers who do not require route-based
analyzers. These products transfer data
directly to the Analysis and Reporting Manager, which is a stand-alone PC based supporting application, and / or Microsoft Excel
for analysis and display. The stand-alone
SKF Microlog Analyzers (-A series) can mix
and match modules to provide different
capabilities including adding route capability.
SKF Microlog module suite – Route
Route
Route based data collection for your plant
based maintenance program
Trending vibration data from critical and non-critical machines in
your plant is essential to reduce unplanned downtime and maintenance costs. The SKF Microlog Analyzer "Route" module allows users
to carry out routine data collection, using a multi-parameter
approach, to collect and trend data to help diagnose machinery
faults. Users can set up single channel, dual or simultaneous triaxial
measurements using SKF @ptitude Analyst software. Your SKF
@ptitude Analyst host software's ROUTE feature allows you to build
measurement collection sequences (ROUTEs) to help users perform
the most efficient data collection. SKF Microlog ROUTE data collection is a very easy process, in fact, once you begin data collection,
you need only press the Enter button repeatedly to sequentially collect data for every measurement POINT in your ROUTE.
A ROUTE is a list of measurement POINTs arranged in sequence
for the most efficient data collection. The advantage of ROUTE data
collection is that measurements can be sequenced for the most efficient data collection regardless of their location in your measurement database hierarchy. This method also allows a measurement
POINT or POINTs to appear in many different ROUTEs, and provides
for a ROUTE statistics report.
Features
• Use of SKF’s gE enveloped acceleration vibration measurement(s)
to determine bearing condition.
• Collect, view and review Spectral and Time data simultaneously.
Figure 2. Spectrum and Time data.
• Set alarms and thresholds to indicate machine problems.
• Use harmonic markers to rapidly locate integral orders in relation
to their fundamental (1x) – simple, harmonic and fixed.
• Peak find.
• Y-axis graph scaling adjustment allows you to re-scale the plot to
get a closer look at low amplitude components.
• Orbit POINTs display the shaft’s most recent orbit data for the two
input channels (CH1 and CH2). This can be used to show the
movement of the shaft within the bearing.

SKF Microlog module suite – Balancing
Balancing
Unbalance is defined as: “The uneven distribution of mass about a
rotor’s rotating center line”. The rotating center line can be defined
as the axis about which the rotor would rotate if not constrained by
its bearings. A secondary center line, often referred to as the geometric center line (the physical center line of the rotor) also exists.
When these two center lines coincide, the rotor will be in a state of
balance. When they are apart, the rotor will be unbalanced.
Easy-to-use, on screen guidance
The SKF Microlog Balancing module resolves single plane, two plane
and static-couple balances with high precision on rotating machine
parts such as rotors for electric motors, fans, turbines, propellers
and pumps. Includes two plane balance with prognosis, users can
start with a two plane balance and after the initial trial weight run,
the SKF Microlog calculates what the residual imbalance would be if
you switched to a single plane balance. Clear, comprehensive setup
menus and display screens with graphical data representations promote ease of operation. The Balancing module allows you to save
your balance jobs for quick re-balancing of the same machine at
future dates, or to review past balancing data.
Once a balancing job has been completed the solution is saved in the
Balancing module. The file containing all the relevant details about
the balance from initial to final amplitudes, to weights and angles
can be imported into SKF’s Analysis and Reporting Manager stored
alongside the asset and then linked to SKF @ptitude Analyst.
Key features
• High precision one or two plane balancing
• Balance both slow and fast rotating machines
• Ability to resolve balance weights and trial weight estimator
• Easy to follow interface with graphical outputs
Benefits of properly balanced machinery
• Minimize structural stress
• Minimize vibration
• Reduced noise levels
• Increased machine and bearing life
• Increased safety
• Lower operating costs

The SKF Microlog is designed to interface with laser tachometers,
optical tachometers, or stroboscopes for balancing phase measurements. Using the Balancing module, vibration and phase readings
are taken to establish the magnitude and position of the unbalance
force. The SKF Microlog then prompts the operator where to attach
the correct amount of compensation weight – or where and how
much material to remove. The result returns the center of gravity to
the center line of the shaft and reduces vibration. Color coding of the
balance data indicates when the desired balance level (user defined)
has been achieved.

SKF Microlog module suite – Data Recorder
Data Recorder
Digital signal recordings for post-process
analysis
The Data Recorder module enables the SKF Microlog to act as a digital signal recorder, allowing you to record a machine’s raw vibration
signal (time waveform) as a Microsoft Windows .WAV audio file. The
.WAV file can be imported into SKF’s Analysis and Reporting Manager to post-process the measurements as if you were performing
measurements on the machine in real time. Data can be order
tracked, time or sample based with selectable windows, sample
sizes and much more. Once the post processing has been done, the
plots can be assigned to the asset and then linked to SKF @ptitude
Analyst. The SKF Microlog GX and AX models can capture up to four
channels.
• For ship propulsion systems, instead of spending hours of gas
turbine drive time taking analysis measurements at the ship’s
maximum speed, the ship can be run up to full speed, a five minute .WAV file recorded at full speed, then run back down and
hours of analysis measurements can be performed on the
recorded vibration signal, saving a lot of costly fuel!
• Signals may be obtained from numerous sources, including;
accelerometers, microphones, pressure sensors, strain gauges,
current shunts, tachometers, etc. If the data is transferred to a
PC, files can be sent via email back to base. As such, if an operator
or service engineer is unable to diagnose a problem on site, data
can be sent for analysis by an expert.

recorded as .WAV data while the machine is run for a short time.
The machine can then be shut down to avoid further damage and
the recorded .WAV file played as many times as required to perform vibration analysis measurements on the machine’s recorded
vibration signal.

SKF Microlog module suite – FFT Analyzer
FFT Analyzer (Including
Bump Test functionality)
View up to 25 600 lines of FFT resolution
The FFT Analyzer module allows you to quickly set up spectral /
phase measurements for analysis. The user has the option to select
up to four channels (model dependent), up to 25 600 lines of resolution and 80 kHz Fmax (single Channel). Data may be stored in the
SKF Microlog for future review, and can be transferred to the host
computer in comma separated value format (.csv) for import and
analysis into the Analysis and Reporting Manager or spreadsheet
applications such as Microsoft Excel. Also can be uploaded to SKF
@ptitude Analyst as non-route data and can be attached to the
point.
The friendly user interface displays spectrum and phase information in a simple, easy to understand format. By providing a phase
vector reading (needed to diagnose some machine faults) an operator can build an understanding of the relative motion of individual
parts of the machine. Placing sensors, and setting up and taking
measurements can all be performed without the need to stop the
machine. A tachometer reference is not required as the phase measurement may be taken by cross-referencing channels one and two,
allowing for analysis of machinery with buried or covered shafts,
such as gear boxes and pumps.
Easy to use predefined measurement settings can be used with
the press of one button for immediate analysis, or can be modified
to users own requirements. These include Bump Test, Orbit and
Cross Phase to name but a few.

SKF Microlog module suite – Conformance Check
Conformance Check
The Conformance Check module transforms the SKF Microlog into a
tool for inspection and maintenance. An automated assessment
compares vibration levels with established limits and a pass or fail
indication is displayed to show whether the product complies with
predefined quality indicators or required standards. Conformance
Check has the ability to assess up to 64 individual fault criteria
simultaneously and provide an on-screen indication if a warning or
alarm level is reached.
Easy pass / fail indication
Data analysis
In addition to displaying a simple color coded grading of machinery
health, measurement data can also be selectively recorded and
stored in the SKF Microlog as required. All recorded data can be
transferred to the desktop PC environment using ActiveSync, enabling test results to be uploaded into the Analysis and Reporting
Manager or Microsoft Excel for more detailed analysis and presentation of results.
The Analysis and Reporting Manager assigns Check to Conformance data to the asset, allowing post install baseline readings.
Standards for testing machinery
Machinery conformance may be determined with SKF test standards that are established in accordance with existing industry standards, for example ISO, API, NEMA and IEEE; or users can develop
their own compliance test templates based upon custom conformance criteria specific to their business.
The templates can be loaded into the SKF Microlog, automatically
setting up your pass/fail limits, facilitating proper machinery testing
to meet the correct requirements. Each test template can also be
used to form the basis of your own “custom” standard. Limits can be
easily altered as required using a PC application included with the
Conformance Check module.
If you require custom test templates and do not have available
resources to create them, SKF is here to help. We can provide custom test templates. Simply tell us the specified vibration limits you
need to measure and we will create a dedicated application specifically for your maintenance routines.
By following simple on-screen instructions, an automated vibration
assessment indicates the quality and / or health of your pump,
motor or rotating mechanical device. This instant assessment enables you to quickly determine if your machinery is operating within
its specified limits. The Conformance Check also allows your quality
and installation personnel to check that the product complies with
your predefined quality indicators and that your finished product
meets the required standards, both at final assembly and after initial
installation. To assist the user in attaching the transducer to the correct location, a picture of the machine showing the locations can be
added to the test template.

SKF Microlog module suite – Frequency Response Function
Frequency Response Function
Structural analysis through modal testing and
display
The Frequency Response Function (FRF) module is designed to enable a user to quickly establish a structure’s properties (accelerance,
apparent mass, mobility, impedance stiffness or compliance) by performing modal analysis using a calibrated hammer for the excitation. The FRF module can also measure and display the transfer
function (ratio) between two transducers while a machine is running. Graphical representation of the modal parameters can aid in
the characterization of a structure. The SKF Microlog clearly displays
the FRF phase and coherence. Measurements can be exported to
the Analysis and Reporting Manager for further viewing and analysis
of the Operating Deflection Shapes (ODS). Third-party software can
also be used to display and animate the spatial response of a structure in slow motion, overall motion and the motion of one part relative to another.

SKF Microlog module suite – SKF Idler Sound Monitor
SKF Idler Sound Monitor
Detect conveyor idler faults with the SKF
Microlog Idler Sound Monitor kit
In many industries, conveyors are an important part of a material
handling system especially in mining and cement industries. Failure
of an idler can lead to belt damage, expensive downtime and lost
production. The SKF Idler Sound Monitor Kit was developed for early
detection of faults in conveyor support and return idlers. Using
acoustic enveloping technology, the SKF Idler Sound Monitor Kit distinguishes between the sounds of a good idler and a faulty one. It
can detect faulty idlers earlier and more reliably than, for instance,
when a maintenance worker walks the length of the conveyor belt to
listen or look for problems. The kit also provides shorter measurement time and earlier fault detection than a thermographic camera.
With the SKF Idler Sound Monitor module, the screen of the SKF
Microlog displays a simple to understand “traffic light” visual alarm:
• Green for OK
• Yellow to indicate a “suspect” idler
• Red to indicate a “bad” idler
Analyzer module. When a faulty idler is identified, the FFT Analyzer
module allows you to quickly set up spectral / phase measurements
for further fault detection. FFT Analyzer module data may be stored
in the SKF Microlog for future review, and can be transferred to the
host computer in comma separated value format (.csv) for import
and analysis into the Analysis and Reporting Manager or spreadsheet applications such as Microsoft Excel.
With reliable detection up to 3 meters (10 feet) away while walking the belt (under optimal conditions), the SKF Idler Sound Monitor
Kit provides maintenance workers with a safe to use and objective
tool for idler inspection. The kit serves as an alternative to traditional
“walk arounds” that depend on the skill of the worker to listen and
recognize a faulty idler. The instrument can be used with one hand,
and therefore, complies with safe procedures for three-point contact
while working in a plant or mine. Because the microphone can
detect faulty idlers on the far side of the belt, there is no need to
walk both sides of it. This positions the worker during the measurements at a safe distance from the moving conveyor belt.
Benefits
The kit includes a microphone encased in a rugged parabolic holder
for aiming at the idlers. Headphones issue an audible alarm for fault
detection and allow the user to listen to the idler as an additional aid
to diagnosis. It is so easy to use that even inexperienced workers are
able to detect faults with minimal training. For further fault detection
or analysis, the SKF Idler Sound Monitor kit also includes the FFT

SKF Microlog module suite – SKF Idler Sound Monitor
Measurement overview
SKF Idler Sound Monitor “listens” to each roller’s sound and simultaneously applies four acoustic measurements that are preset to best
detect idler faults for typical conveyor conditions. These measurements are set up to monitor the types of sound emitted by conveyor
idler rollers and filter out other unwanted sounds. The four techniques used to analyze data and detect faults are:
1 gE True Peak
– Detect impact
type vibration
2 gE Root Sum

Diagnosis and analysis
Robust analytical and diagnostic capabilities
that are easy to use
SKF @ptitude Analyst continues to deliver class leading functionality
by incorporating innovations such as derived functions, CTA (Cyclic
Time Average) overlay, and HAL (Harmonic Activity Locator) analysis
to its users (CTA and HAL are SKF patented algorithms).
SKF @ptitude Analyst supports many standard graphs and combination graphs that quickly visualize problem areas. Graph overlays
provide cursor functions to obtain special information such as frequency band details, average and standard deviation values, skew or
kurtosis. Frequency analysis overlays can be used for spectrum
graphs to quickly identify common bearing or other fault source frequencies. Implementation of HAL provides harmonic series recognition whereby impact failures are recognized and prioritized by
likelihood.
In some cases, the actual stream of information is not directly
acquired but rather must be computed based on a combination of
acquired values. Therefore, SKF @ptitude Analyst supports Derived
Points, which act like virtual data collection points computed by a
user programmable macro that operates on any other data stream.
For example, you may calculate potential savings from air leaks in a
compressed air system by implementing a derived calculation that
multiplies the severity of a measurable air leak in a pipe by the cost
to generate each unit.
Automated features simplify configuring and
fine-tuning alarms
Since similar machines often use similar alarms, the Alarm Database provides user-defined alarms that can be applied to create
alarm settings for multiple measurement points.
An Alarm Wizard assists in creating Statistical Alarms to set
alarms for your most important machinery with minimal research
and effort. SKF @ptitude Analyst considers historical data and natural variation in machinery vibration levels and generates reliable
alarm criteria tailored to the specific machine.
SKF @ptitude Analyst’s variable speed alarming features accommodate normal fluctuations in machine speed and function. Alarm
limits are automatically reset as speed changes, preventing false
alarms.
SKF @ptitude Analyst also supports overdue alarms that notify
you if monitoring data was not collected as expected.
36
The CTA overlay enhances time waveform analysis when diagnosing
broken gear teeth.
Enhanced alarm view saves valuable time
Alarm View window displays all points that require immediate attention to help you quickly identify and prioritize follow-up activities and
acknowledge alarm conditions. The Alarm Details window offers a
comprehensive list of the specific points in alarm and the level and
type of alarm, all in one convenient view.
Auto Linking makes it easy to view individual alarms as data plots
and alarm details change automatically when you select new points,
saving time and simplifying the analysis process.
Versatile viewing options for multi-parameter
analysis
For fast, easy comparison of two or more readings across multiple
points, SKF @ptitude Analyst allows you to select a measurement
and drag and drop it into the plot, providing convenience and saving
time.
The SKF @ptitude Analyst frequency analysis feature helps to
identify specific bearing and gearbox frequency sets for rapid detection and correction of probable bearing and machine problems. SKF
@ptitude Analyst’s on-line data view automatically refreshes to display the latest information, point status and alarm details. Live views
provide immediate update of displayed data while the Event Log
documents specific occurrences over time. The System Information
view provides one-stop navigation between different views, such as
Event Log, On-line Data view, individual routes and workspaces.
SKF @ptitude Analyst’s database management tools allow you to
closely track machine problems to recreate events for predictive
maintenance and to perform root cause failure analysis.

Scalability through application add-ons
Feature and deployment scalability
Transient analysis (Run up Coast down)
SKF @ptitude Analyst software is configured using license keys.
These keys automatically activate or add new functionality to the
base application, hence the name “add-on”. Additionally, three different base applications are available: SKF @ptitude Inspector primarily
used for Operator Driven Reliability (ODR), SKF @ptitude Analyst for
SKF Microlog Analyzer, and SKF @ptitude Analyst, the flagship application of the SKF @ptitude Monitoring Suite.
The SKF @ptitude Analyst software can be deployed as a stand
alone application on a single workstation or as a fully networked,
distributed application whereby data storage and business logic are
kept on separate application servers to help ensure high throughput
and availability.
SKF @ptitude Analyst software fully supports virtualization environments. These environments allow SKF @ptitude Analyst to be
installed and published onto an enterprise system from a centralized
location. Data connections can be made through the virtualization
environment or through Thin Client Transfer, which provides fast and
secure network connectivity.
The Transient Manager is a standard add-on to the SKF @ptitude
Analyst that allows you to manage and display all transient hierarchy
views. Depending on transient view properties, the transient event
may be automatically captured at defined speed changes and other
parameters to provide accurate analysis, such as a turbine coast
down event. Transient events may be displayed in live or trend (historical) mode using the following graphs:
• The Topology graph illustrates a series of spectra (similar to
Campbell plots) using a user-defined color scheme to easily visualize amplitude peaks. This graph also features vector
compensation.
• The Bode graph with Damping Cursor is a dual plot consisting of
phase and amplitude as a function of rotational speed. The damping cursor enables you to identify resonance information at critical
speed when performing transient event analysis.
• The Nyquist graph plots the shaft’s movement during a transient
event and is similar to a Bode graph but using polar notation. This
graph also features vector compensation and optional rotational
speed labels.
• The Cascade graph plots data over running speed and features
data filtering options for optimal event presentation.

SKF @ptitude Analyst
Access and security
SKF @ptitude Analyst permits access on a
customized basis, yet allows the effective
exchange of detailed information across
functional departments.
Advanced security system
protects data
SKF @ptitude Analyst enables security
through the use of security roles. A security
role is comprised of many individual security
levels that control access rights to data,
viewing, reporting, graphing, and more.
Assigning users a security role instantly
defines the access rights for that user.
Changing the security role definition updates
the access rights for all assigned users; this
is a time-savings feature when managing
several users. SKF @ptitude Analyst comes
with four default roles, however an unlimited number of roles can be defined.
Personalized access rights allow the software administrator to protect against errors and enable
traceability.
Setup data change log
Measurement setup greatly defines how
effective the entire system monitors your
assets. For audit purposes, SKF @ptitude
Analyst provides a log of changes made to
the most important measurement setup
details, logging date, responsible person and
change detail.
Customized reports
Extensive report customization features let
you control the specific kinds of machine
information to be communicated throughout
the organization. You can customize the
templates or design an entirely new report
including data plots, supplemental information and digital images. Additionally, the
Report Manager allows you to maintain a
history of reports, and pre-configure report
content and format to share with selected
users.
Reports are generated in HTML format,
giving you the flexibility to view on-screen,
print, edit using Microsoft Word or Excel,
attach to an email or automatically post to
your company’s intranet when programmed
into the Scheduler feature.

Predefined report templates make it easy to generate common reports such as Last Measurement,
Exception, Overdue/Noncompliant, History, Route Statistics, and others.

Analysis and Reporting Manager
Support application for the SKF Microlog Analyzer AX and GX series
SKF’s Analysis and Reporting manager is a PC based application for
transferring, displaying and analyzing data generated by the application modules of the SKF Microlog AX and GX series instruments.
With Analysis and Reporting Manager, data may be exported to
ASCII or Excel files for easy viewing using Microsoft Excel or other
third party software. Analysis and Reporting Manager provides an
easy mechanism for uploading data from your instrument via USB,
once uploaded, the data is automatically shown in the application
main window, and a single mouse click is all that is needed to view
the data in a powerful, interactive graphical plot. SKF Analysis and
Reporting Manager also provides a full range of post-processing
features that allow users to get the most out of the application module data.
Analysis and Reporting Manager support is provided to the following modules:
• Balancing
• Data Recorder
• Frequency Response Function (FRF)
• Run up Coast down (RuCd)
• Spindle Test
• FFT Analyzer
• Conformance Check
Key features
• Digital Signal Processing (DSP) window – enables post-processing of time waveform data using Fast Fourier Transform (FFT)
routines into Spectrum or Waterfall plots
• File download management – specify file locations on your PC or
network; data is sorted by date / time and module type when it is
uploaded
• Import of Conformance Check module results, including the
report table with the machine graphic, as well as the spectral
results files
• Conformance Check results can be combined to generate trend
plots
• Import of Run up Coast down (RuCd) module data files, including
the original .wav recording and the CSV results files
• Export of data to UFF (type 58) files allowing easy import into
structural analysis packages
• Batch exporting of data into Microsoft Excel, allowing consolidation of multiple measurements into a single workbook with multiple tabs, or separate workbooks
• Creation of Microsoft Word documents from data, including support of templates via bookmarks. Graph plots as well as numerical
values may be included, and Conformance Check results tables
may be created.
• Custom balance reports created in Microsoft Word
Data collected for these modules can be
imported into the SKF’s Analysis and
Reporting Manager, stored alongside the
asset and then linked to SKF @ptitude Analyst, allowing users to provide additional
information about the data.
Note: “Asset” has no meaning in the stand-alone version. For the add-on version, it means you can
associate some Analaysis Reporting Manager data
with a node in the SKF @ptitude Analyst hierarchy.

Powerful interactive graph plots:
• Single and multiple time waveform or spectrum
• Waterfall
• Overlay
• Orbit and polar plots (with a moving zoom function allowing easy
traversal of orbit/polar data)
• Bode and Nyquist
• Spectrogram
• Balance run polar plots
Easy to use graphical display:
• Zooming and magnification
• Dynamic cursor types (harmonic, power, peak-in-band, side
band, etc.)
• Integration, control of engineering units and vertical scale
• Unlimited annotations and notes, allowing you to record and
highlight information about your data
Enhanced functionality
Analysis and Reporting Manager has new functionality for the
stand-alone product as well as the embedded version that will now
be included with both the popular CMSW 7400 and now the
CMSW 7300 software products. Analysis and Reporting Manager
functionality allows users to upload, view and post-process field collected data from modules in our SKF Microlog Analyzers.
SKF’s Analysis and Reporting Manager application now has the
ability to calculate enveloped (gE) overall limits and store calculations with the collected data. SKF’s acceleration enveloping (gE) feature contains a set of calculated warning and alarm levels. These
warning limits depend on a specific bearing bore, speed and the
Fmax selected for your enveloped spectrum. To assist in setting the
correct alarm and warning levels, there is now an SKF bearing database lookup feature that is built right into the Analysis and Reporting
Manager software.
48
The Digital Signal Processing Module (DSP) provides several postprocessing features including acceleration enveloping (gE) analysis.
This menu has many advanced features including waterfall, and Fast
Fourier Transforms (FFT) along with other advanced features. It supports the recording of raw data from a series of sensors to allow
users to collect data from a machine running for a short duration.
This can be very helpful where route collection would not normally
collect enough data; either fast enough, or where collection of data
over an extended period of time is not practical. The raw signals can
then be post processed, using Analysis and Reporting Manager software to produce all of the spectra required for analysis.
With the latest version of Analysis and Reporting Manager, the
post processing options allow you to perform SKF acceleration
enveloping (gE) and display the results right in the analyzer window.
Once the data is captured, it can then be overlaid with bearing fault
frequencies onto the post processed spectra to calculate warning
and alert levels.
In addition to the impressive list of post processing options available in the Analysis and Reporting Manager, SKF has also added
Cepstrum, Power Cepstrum, and Power Spectrum to the list of available features. Cepstrum analysis is a tool for detecting periodicity in
an FFT which is especially useful when diagnosing potential gear box
failures. Power spectrum provides a plot of the portion of a signal’s
power (energy per unit time) for any given frequency in the FFT
where the energy is measured at the cursor position.
The new License key support replaces the older style dongle technology with current SKF @ptitude License Keys supporting customer trials and product evaluations.
Analysis and Reporting Manager
Customized reporting and data management
Customized reporting
The Analysis and Reporting Manager automatically imports data
into your PC; it can then be browsed and manipulated using a familiar Explorer style tree display. Extensive context (pop up) menus and
customizable toolbars allow simple manipulation and configuration
of your data display including customizing the colors and fonts used
in the plots and records can be moved around using the Windows
clipboard and drag-and-drop feature. A large number of standard
file formats are supported, including .wav, ASCII and UFF (Universal
File Format).
Data management
The Analysis and Reporting Manager automatically stores data in
data stream files which embed the original data and all user added
settings such as cursors and ranges, as well as annotations and
notes. Customizable text based reports can be generated from the
data, and any record can be output as ASCII text or the graph plot
copied to the clipboard as a bitmap file. All data can be saved to ASCII
or UFF files or written directly into Microsoft Excel workbooks.
