Being in close proximity to the machines – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, operators are often the first to notice even the smallest changes in machine condition. @ptitude Inspector and the MARLIN system enables operations personnel to make their rounds, collecting machine condition, inspection and process data easily and efficiently in the palm-sized unit. Data is trended and when certain conditions are met, the MARLIN system alerts the operator, then provides instructions for immediate corrective action. Operator routes are easily created in @ptitude Inspector and downloaded to the MARLIN system. SKF @ptitude Inspector Process inspection and analysis software for use with the SKF MARLIN data manager www.skf.com/cm 3 Expert analysis and efficient decision support SKF @ptitude Inspector fully supports the Machine Condition Detector (MCD) POINT type of the MARLIN (velocity, acceleration enveloping, temperature). All types of process data types are supported including: pressure, flow, RPM, temperature and AC or DC current. Instantly access points in alarm or view alarm status for a specific machine. An Alarm Wizard helps calculate alarms for plant machinery, making this complex task almost effortless for the user. @ptitude Inspector interfaces with @ptitude Decision Support, which identifies the probability of specific faults within an asset or process, then prescribes the appropriate action to address the problem. This systematic approach to decisionmaking enables consistency among employees throughout your local or global organization. Information when you need it Sharing your data with other groups within your organization is vital in today’s business world. @ptitude Inspector facilitates this data exchange by providing full data import/export capability. Collected data and observations are used to form a wide range of standard or customized management reports. Data plots, machine notes and images can be included with the report, so that a complete machinery and process documentation package can be generated and e-mailed, posted to your company intranet, or imported to a document. When used with SKF @ptitude Work Notification, work orders that may have previously been ignored are easily generated by machine operators as soon as they discover and identify potential problem conditions. Reports keep management informed.

Other applications running simultaneously may degrade performance. NOTE 2: These requirements ONLY apply to SKF @ptitude Inspector complete with database management system. Additional storage disk space is required for data. NOTE 3: The major benefits of spreading Oracle across three or more hard disks at the server is the improved speed, and improved recoverability of a previously archived database. The recommended five disk configuration provides the optimal protection for backup, recovery, indexing, and speed. Disk/file configuration should ONLY be handled by a SKF Field Service Technician certified on SKF @ptitude Inspector. If using RAID, the combination of RAID 0 and RAID 1 is recommended over RAID 5. NOTICE: If running other versions of Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, or other database management system are expected to run in the same PC environment, please contact your local SKF Representative to inquire about compatibility.
