SKF Machine Condition Advisor
SKF Machine
Condition Advisor
Machine monitoring, made simple
SKF Machine Condition Advisor simultaneously
measures vibration signals and temperature to
indicate machine health or bearing damage.
Now both novice users and experts
can easily, quickly and accurately check
the condition of rotating equipment
throughout your facility. Equipping your
maintenance and operations personnel
with this rugged, ergonomic and easyto-use instrument can provide early
warning of potential machine problems
before a costly failure occurs.
• Quick and easy to set up and use,
measurements are shown on a bright
display viewable in low light to direct
sunlight. Free on-line training is also
available at SKF @ptitude Exchange.
• Lightweight, compact and
ergonomically designed, the SKF
Machine Condition Advisor fits neatly at
the belt line, in a pocket or a tool kit.
Exceptionally durable, the unit is rated
IP 54 for use in adverse industrial
• Alert and Danger prompts provide
increased diagnostic confidence.
• Measuring Velocity, Enveloped Acceleration and temperature simultaneously
saves time.
• Efficient, economical and environmentally friendly, the rechargeable SKF
Machine Condition Advisor operates 10
hours on a single charge.
• Flexible enough to work with standard
100 mV/g ICP accelerometers, an
optional external sensor can be used
for hard-to-reach locations.
• Features English, French, German,
Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish for
user convenience.
Multiple measurements
with a single device
The SKF Machine Condition Advisor
provides an overall “Velocity” vibration
reading that measures vibration signals
from the machine and automatically
compares them to pre-programmed
International Organization for
Standardization (ISO) guidelines. An
“Alert” or “Danger” alarm displays
when measurements exceed those
guidelines. Simultaneously an “Enveloped
Acceleration” measurement is taken
and compared to established bearing
vibration guidelines to verify conformity
or indicate potential bearing damage.
The SKF Machine Condition Advisor also
measures temperature using an infrared
sensor to indicate uncharacteristic heat.
Accuracy, flexibility and confidence
When performing measurements, the
Machine Condition Advisor’s acceleration
sensor input signal is processed to
produce two different measurements for
each POINT on the machinery – overall
velocity and enveloped acceleration.
At the same time, the SKF Machine
Condition Advisor’s non-contact
infrared sensor measures the surface
temperature of the measurement
location and simultaneously displays all
three measurement values.
Depending on the SKF Machine Condition
Advisor’s System setting, the front-panel
LCD simultaneously displays:

Understanding and using
guidelines for vibration
from machinery with Rigid (default) or
Flexible foundations.
The SKF Machine Condition Advisor
provides a means to evaluate machine
health based on ISO 10816-3 and
to evaluate the bearings according to
general guidelines developed from a
statistical analysis of existing databases.
Options are:
How to choose the correct
“Alarm Velocity Group” for
your machinery
Alert: 4.5 mm/s (0.25 ips)
Danger: 7.1 mm/s (0.39 ips)
The Alarm Velocity Group (G2&4 or
G1&3) determines the instrument’s
“overall vibration” alarm limits. Therefore,
select the Group that best describes
the general size, type, and speed of the
machinery being measured. Note that
these machine group classifications
are set forth in ISO 10816-3, which
rates overall velocity vibration levels for
standardized machinery classifications.
Groups 2&4 (default)
ISO Group 2 and 4 classifications define
the following typeof machinery:
• Medium-sized machines and electrical
machines with a shaft height between
160 and 315 mm.
• These machines are normally equipped
with rolling element bearings, but may
use sleeve bearings, and operate at
speeds above 600 RPM.
• These machines include pumps with
multi-vane impellers and integrated
Groups 1&3
ISO Group 1 and 3 classifications define
the following typeof machinery:
• Large machinery and electrical
machines with a shaft height greater
than 315 mm.
• These machines are generally
equipped with sleeve bearings, but
may use rolling element bearings.
• These machines include pumps with
multi-vane impellers and integrated
Rigid or Flexible foundation?
An additional setting allows the
specification (when defining the overall
alarm levels) of measurements taken
