SKF Machine Condition Detector Pro IS
CMVL 3600-IS-K-01-C
Intrinsically safe automatic collection of vibration and temperature data
The SKF Machine Condition Detector
Pro IS (MCD) is certified Intrinsically
Safe (IS) for use in the hazardous
environments typically found in the
petrochemical industrial marketplace.
The MCD provides for velocity,
enveloped acceleration, and
temperature monitoring with general
alarm capabilities and has ATEX and
North American hazardous locations
approvals.
• Multi-parameter measurements,
­including vibration velocity, enveloped
acceleration, and temperature
The MCD provides for velocity, enveloped
acceleration, and temperature monitoring
with general alarm capabilities and has
ATEX and North American hazardous
locations approvals.
• Red, yellow and green LED alarms
for quick Go/No Go indication of
equipment status for enhanced user
confidence
• QuickConnect mechanical/computerized studs for fast, quarter-turn
connection which temporarily fastens
the probe to a measurement point
Go / No Go machine monitoring
The sensor of the MCD affixes
to a machine point via an SKF
QuickConnect Stud or magnetic base
for automatic collection of vibration
and temperature data.
Green, yellow, and red LEDs
provide easy-to-interpret indications
of machine status, so operations or
maintenance personnel can quickly
identify the need for more in-depth
analysis on a particular machine.
8
Vibration monitoring and
enveloped acceleration
Velocity vibration identifies phenomena
which are observable in the low to mid
frequency range, and indicates such
structural problems as misalignment,
unbalance, mechanical looseness,
and more.
Moreover, events which occur
in the higher frequency ranges such
as bearing and gear problems, can
also be detected by the MCD with
its enveloped acceleration capability,
a signal processing technique which
focuses on enhancing the repetitious
vibration signals that characterize
such problems.
Temperature
Temperature measurements enhance
the “early warning” benefit of the
MCD by offering a useful indication
of mechanical condition or the load
applied to a specific component,
because, as a bearing or its lubricant
fails, friction causes its temperature
to rise.
General alarm capabilities
The MCD is easily programmed for
six alarm settings, which include the
“alert” and “danger” levels for each
of the three measurements. When
measurements are taken, they are
automatically compared to six userdefined settings, and the MCD’s alarm
indicator and LED react appropriately.
An “alert” condition is an early
warning of impending problems for
which immediate in-depth analysis
should be performed.
A “danger” alarm indicates that a
problem has escalated to a point where
actions must be made quickly to avoid
a serious failure.
QuickConnect studs for quality,
repeatable data collection
Specially designed mechanical and
computerized studs enable users
to collect consistent, accurate,
and repeatable data from each
measurement point.
Engineered to work exclusively
with the MCD, the QuickConnect
mechanical/computerized studs provide
for a fast, quarter turn connection
which temporarily fastens the probe to
a measurement point. This reduces the
possibility of errors and inconsistencies
often resulting from data collected by
a variety of individuals using varying
techniques.

SKF Electrical Discharge Detector Pen
TKED 1
Unique, reliable and safe way to detect electrical discharges
in electric motor bearings
The SKF Electrical Discharge Detector
Pen (EDD Pen) is a simple to use
hand-held instrument for detecting
electrical discharges in electric motor
bearings.
Electrical discharges are a result
of motor shaft voltages discharging
to earth through the bearing, causing
electrical erosion, lubricant degradation
and ultimately bearing failure.
Electric motors are more vulnerable
to suffer electrical erosion in bearings
when controlled by a Variable
Frequency Drive.
When incorporated in a predictive
maintenance program, the EDD
Pen can help detect bearings more
susceptible to failure, and significantly
prevent unplanned machine downtime.
• Unique remote solution allows
operation at a distance from the
motors which protects the user from
touching machinery in motion
• No special training required
• Capable of detecting electrical
discharges on a time base of 10
seconds, 30 seconds, or indefinite
Lubricant degradation caused by electrical
discharge currents
• LED backlit screen allows use in dark
environments
• IP 55 (Ingress Protection) rating for
protection against dust and water
Available in SKF assessment and
monitoring kits. See Ordering details.

SKF OilCheck monitor
TMEH1
The SKF OilCheck
indicates the degradation
and contamination level
of oil, and detects
increased mechanical
wear and loss of
the oil’s lubricating
properties.
• Shows changes in oil
condition effected by:
–– Water content
–– Fuel contamination
–– Metallic content
–– Oxidation
• Handheld and user friendly
• Numerical readout to facilitate
trending
The SKF OilCheck measures the changes
in dielectric constant of an oil. By
comparing the measurements obtained
from used and new oils of the same
type and brand, the SKF OilCheck is able
to determine the degree of change
in the condition of the oil.
Dielectric change is directly related to
the degradation and the contamination
level of the oil and will allow the user
to achieve optimized intervals between
oil changes and detect increased
mechanical wear and loss of the oil’s
lubricating properties. To facilitate
trending, the instrument is equipped
with numerical read-out.
Note: The SKF OilCheck is not an analytical
instrument. It is an instrument to detect changes
in the oil condition only. The visual and numerical
readouts provide a guide and enable trending of
the comparative readings of a good oil to a used
oil of the same type and brand.

Analysis modules and Product Support Plan
Conformance check module
The conformance check
functionality transforms
the Microlog into a tool for
everyday inspection after delivery,
installation, or repair of machinery.
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
requirements.
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.
Data recorder module
Signals from sensors
connected to the Microlog are
digitally recorded and stored
as standard time waveform (WAV)
files. These files can be sent via e-mail
or transferred to a computer for post
processing in external software.
Run up Coast down module
This module records and
analyzes data from machines
where noise or vibration
levels are changing with speed, time
or load 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 (WAV) file for further
analysis.

CPHD kits
Fault detection systems for mining,
mineral processing and cement
Unplanned production shutdowns
caused by faults in mining and cement
machinery always cost more, in both
time and money, than planned
shutdowns for maintenance and
repair. With SKF Copperhead Fault
Detection Systems, machinery faults
can be detected before an unplanned
shutdown occurs.
Using the latest vibration and
temperature measurement techniques
to monitor equipment, SKF Copperhead
systems detect faults such as loose
components, unbalance, gear and
bearing damage, lack of lubrication,
and high temperatures. The systems
feature rugged sensors developed for
the harsh mining, mineral processing
and cement industries.
These pre-engineered and easy-toinstall systems can be used for periodic
monitoring, stand-alone continuous
monitoring, or integrated into a plant/
mine process automation system.
SKF Copperhead becomes part of the
plant/mine process automation system
when the continuous fault detection
capabilities are used. It can also be
used in a predictive maintenance
program when the sensors are
connected with a portable data
collector.
SKF Copperhead systems enable plant/
mine operators and maintenance to:
• Avoid unplanned downtime
• Reduce maintenance and repair costs
• Detect process faults (machinery
function, pump cavitation)
• Improve productivity
• Reduce safety hazards (rotating,
height and machinery repairs)
40
Applications
Made-to-order kits
• Agglomeration drums
SKF Copperhead Fault Detection Systems
are supplied as made-to-order kits
including rugged sensors, enclosures
for periodic or continuous monitoring,
vibration and temperature transmitters,
and display/alarm modules.
The kits can be supplied with sensors
with alternative cable lengths, stainless
steel enclosures, and high temperature
sensors (up to 200 °C/390 °F) for
higher temperature grinding and
process machinery applications.
Mining, mineral processing and
cement machines come in many
different configurations; therefore,
each application needs to be evaluated
to determine the best combination of
components for the system kit.

temperature data collectors such as the
SKF Microlog Analyzer or equivalent.
The transmitter powers the sensor
and provides a vibration and
temperature analog signal which
is processed using one of three
user configurable techniques: SKF
enveloped acceleration, acceleration
or velocity.
• SKF enveloped acceleration vibration
analysis is used to identify repetitive
impact type vibrations generated
by machinery faults due to loose
components, gear and bearing faults,
and lack of lubrication
• Low speed sensors (CMPT 2323
and CMPT 2323T) have a higher
230 mV/g vibration sensitivity
• Available for monitoring both
acceleration and temperature
• Rugged, low profile construction
standard with an integral
5m (16 ft.) armored cable
Display/alarm module
CMPT DCL
The display/alarm module is used
to provide stand-alone monitoring
of the signals from the vibration and
temperature transmitter (CMPT CTU).
The display/alarm module has a
front panel digital display and alarm
function, including programmable
alarm settings, a front panel alarm
lamp, and relay contacts.
One display/alarm module is needed
per vibration and temperature signal.
The kit provides permanent
mounted sensors for a safe, reliable
and repeatable periodic predictive
maintenance program.
“E” Type
For continuous monitoring
“E” type enclosures are steel with
a hinged window door that includes
the vibration and temperature
transmitter (CMPT CTU) for continuous
monitoring.
• Acceleration vibration analysis is
used to monitor overall machine
and structural vibration
• Velocity vibration analysis is used
to identify looseness, misalignment
and unbalance
The transmitter has an optional special
10 second decay feature for monitoring
large, low rotational speed machines.
When used with the low speed/higher
sensitivity sensors, it becomes a very
effective fault detection system for
roller presses, vertical grinding mills,
kilns, agglomeration drums, and more.
These enclosures can be connected
directly to the plant/mine automation
system, or can provide stand-alone
vibration and temperature monitoring
when the enclosure includes the
display/alarm module (CMPT DCL).
All “E” type enclosures come
standard with a universal voltage/
frequency power convertor and are
pre-wired for easy installation.

Fault detection and sensors
Eddy probe systems
RYTON-based eddy current transducers
Eddy probe systems
The Eddy probe system is a field
proven method for reliably detecting
various machine displacement
parameters. The probe’s simplicity and
rugged design enables it to withstand
the temperatures and chemicals
typically encountered in harsh machine
environments.
Eddy probes measure radial or
axial shaft motion. They are mounted
through or to the side of a bearing
cap and observe the shaft’s movement
relative to its mounting position.
An Eddy probe system is comprised
of a probe, a driver (oscillator
demodulator), and an extension cable.
Eddy probe systems have excellent
frequency response. They have no
lower frequency limit and are used to
measure shaft axial position as well as
vibration.
• Conforms to API 670 – American
Petroleum Institute has published
Standard 670 to define reliable
protection systems for rotating
equipment operating in the harsh
conditions found in oil production,
refining, and chemical processing
• Super tough RYTON probe tips and
driver case – RYTON’s strength approaches that of metal. The material
is now beginning to be used in the
manufacture of automobile engines
• DIN rail mounting and compression
connectors are used for optimum
installation
• Hazardous area approved units are
available
• Available with standard removable/
reversible connector or the optional
permanent fixed connector
Note: Eddy probe, displacement probe, and
proximity probe are all synonyms for the same
or similar products manufactured and supplied
by various companies.

Selecting an Eddy probe
system
Hazardous area approvals
North America
A wide variety of SKF systems are
offered to meet the requirements of
virtually any application.
Probe range is limited largely by
the probe’s diameter. The standard
SKF probe diameters are 5 mm
(CMSS 65), and 8 mm (CMSS 68).
The following should be considered
when selecting a system:
Approvals granted by Factory Mutual
(FM) and Canadian Standards
Association (CSA).
Range
The gap over which the system must
accurately operate.
Sensitivity
Must be compatible with monitors or
other companion instruments.
System length
The physical length of the systems is
approximate to the electrical length.
Excess cable in certain installations
is typically coiled and tied with no
harmful effects.
Probe case
The size of the probe mounting case
may be a factor in some installations.
Several case options are available.
Please see ordering information.
Class 1 Division 1 Groups A, B, C, D
Intrinsically safe when used with zener
barriers or galvanic isolators.
Class 1 Division 2 Groups A, B, C, D
When connected with National Electric
Code (NEC) without zener barriers or
galvanic isolator.
See ordering details for probe and
driver designations for hazardous area
approved models.

SKF – the knowledge engineering
company
From the company that invented the selfaligning ball bearing more than 100 years
ago, SKF has evolved into a knowledge
engineering company that is able to draw on
five technology platforms to create unique
solutions for its customers. These platforms
include bearings, bearing units and seals, of
course, but extend to other areas including:
lubricants and lubrication systems, critical
for long bearing life in many applications;
mechatronics that combine mechanical and
electronics knowledge into systems for more
effective linear motion and sensorized solutions; and a full range of services, from design and logistics support to condition monitoring and reliability systems.
Though the scope has broadened, SKF
continues to maintain the world’s leadership
in the design, manufacture and marketing of
rolling bearings, as well as complementary
products such as radial seals. SKF also holds
an increasingly important position in the
market for linear motion products, highprecision aerospace bearings, machine tool
spindles and plant maintenance services.
The SKF Group is globally certified to ISO
14001, the international standard for environmental management, as well as OHSAS
18001, the health and safety management
standard. Individual divisions have been
approved for quality certification in accordance with ISO 9001 and other customer
specific requirements.
With over 100 manufacturing sites worldwide and sales companies in 70 countries,
SKF is a truly international corporation. In
addition, our distributors and dealers in
some 15 000 locations around the world,
an e-business marketplace and a global
distribution system put SKF close to customers for the supply of both products and
services. In essence, SKF solutions are available wherever and whenever customers
need them. Overall, the SKF brand and the
corporation are stronger than ever. As the
knowledge engineering company, we stand
ready to serve you with world-class product
competencies, intellectual resources, and
the vision to help you succeed.

Evolving by-wire technology
SKF has a unique expertise in the fast-growing bywire technology, from fly-by-wire, to drive-bywire, to work-by-wire. SKF pioneered practical flyby-wire technology and is a close working partner
with all aerospace industry leaders. As an example,
virtually all aircraft of the Airbus design use SKF
by-wire systems for cockpit flight control.
SKF is also a leader in automotive by-wire technology, and has partnered with automotive engineers to develop two concept cars, which employ
SKF mechatronics for steering and braking. Further by-wire development has led SKF to produce
an all-electric forklift truck, which uses mechatronics rather than hydraulics for all controls.

Services
Harnessing wind power
The growing industry of wind-generated electric power provides a source of
clean, green electricity. SKF is working closely with global industry leaders to
develop efficient and trouble-free turbines, providing a wide range of large,
highly specialized bearings and condition monitoring systems to extend equipment life of wind farms located in even the most remote and inhospitable
environments.
Working in extreme environments
In frigid winters, especially in northern countries, extreme sub-zero temperatures can cause bearings in railway axleboxes to seize due to lubrication starvation. SKF created a new family of synthetic lubricants formulated to retain
their lubrication viscosity even at these extreme temperatures. SKF knowledge
enables manufacturers and end user customers to overcome the performance
issues resulting from extreme temperatures, whether hot or cold. For example,
SKF products are at work in diverse environments such as baking ovens and
instant freezing in food processing plants.
Developing a cleaner cleaner
The electric motor and its bearings are the heart of many household appliances. SKF works closely with appliance manufacturers to improve their products’ performance, cut costs, reduce weight, and reduce energy consumption.
A recent example of this cooperation is a new generation of vacuum cleaners
with substantially more suction. SKF knowledge in the area of small bearing
technology is also applied to manufacturers of power tools and office
equipment.
Maintaining a 350 km/h R&D lab
In addition to SKF’s renowned research and development facilities in Europe
and the United States, Formula One car racing provides a unique environment
for SKF to push the limits of bearing technology. For over 60 years, SKF products, engineering and knowledge have helped make Scuderia Ferrari a formidable force in F1 racing. (The average racing Ferrari utilizes around 150 SKF
components.) Lessons learned here are applied to the products we provide to
automakers and the aftermarket worldwide.
Delivering Asset Efficiency Optimization
Through SKF Reliability Systems, SKF provides a comprehensive range of
asset efficiency products and services, from condition monitoring hardware
and software to maintenance strategies, engineering assistance and machine
reliability programmes. To optimize efficiency and boost productivity, some
industrial facilities opt for an Integrated Maintenance Solution, in which SKF
delivers all services under one fixed-fee, performance-based contract.
Planning for sustainable growth
By their very nature, bearings make a positive contribution to the natural
environment, enabling machinery to operate more efficiently, consume less
power, and require less lubrication. By raising the performance bar for our
own products, SKF is enabling a new generation of high-efficiency products
and equipment. With an eye to the future and the world we will leave to our
children, the SKF Group policy on environment, health and safety, as well as
the manufacturing techniques, are planned and implemented to help protect
and preserve the earth’s limited natural resources. We remain committed to
sustainable, environmentally responsible growth.
