Put the power of SKF knowledge
engineering in your hands
As the world’s leading manufacturer of rolling bearings, SKF
has a unique understanding of rotating equipment and how
machine components are interrelated. We drew on this
knowledge to create the Microlog Analyzer family of data
collectors and FFT analyzers, today the industry standard for
stand-alone and route-based condition monitoring.
In use around the world and in virtually every industrial
segment, SKF Microlog Analyzer instruments are supported by
sophisticated yet user-friendly software that enables machine
data to be translated into actionable intelligence. By making it
easier to collect, analyze, use and share machine condition
data, SKF Microlog Analyzer portable devices help maintenance
engineers optimize machine reliability, increase availability,
reduce maintenance costs, improve energy efficiency and
reduce total cost of ownership.
Exceptional versatility. Remarkable
In response to changing customer needs, the SKF Microlog
Analyzer family has evolved over the past decade to leverage
the latest technologies, offering market leading functionality for
experienced users, while becoming easier to use for entry level
reliability personnel. The SKF Microlog Analyzer product line
offers a number of hardware and software options, making it
easy for reliability professionals to select, customize and
upgrade their instruments. All SKF Microlog Analyzer products,
except the 51-IS, use the same high speed processor, internal
electronics and firmware. This results in a modular design
making upgrades and updates easy, and making your SKF
Microlog Analyzer an even better investment than before.
Building on a heritage of over 20 years experience in the
design and manufacture of portable data collectors and
analyzers, the SKF Microlog Analyzer family is more userfriendly and flexible than ever, enabling users to customize
menus, maximize speed of data collection routes and
gain efficiency in specific tasks such as balancing. Today’s

SKF analysis modules
Customize your programme functionality with firmware modules
The SKF Microlog Analyzer family of portable instruments are
complemented by a wide range of application-specific firmware
modules. These firmware modules are bundled with some
models/kits to suit your needs, or can be added as required,
extending the functionality of your SKF Microlog Analyzer
without the need to purchase a new instrument.
Check to conformance module
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 required standards
Data recorder module
Signals from sensors connected to
the Microlog Analyzer 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.
Balancing module
This module allows precision
balancing of rotating machinery
across a wide range of speeds. It
performs single plane, two-plane,
and static-couple balancing with
high precision. Clear, comprehensive setup menus and easy-to-follow display screens with
graphical data representation allow easy operation.
FFT analyzer
This module allows you to quickly
set up spectral phase measurements and immediately collect the
data for in the field FFT spectrum
and phase analysis purposes. After
collection, the data may be stored in the Microlog for future
review and can be transferred to a computer for additional
analysis, reporting or storage.
Frequency response function module
This module has two primary functions: Establishes the properties of
mechanical structures (mass, stiffness
and damping) by performing modal
analysis using a calibrated hammer
for the excitation. Measures and
displays the transfer function (ratio)
between two accelerometers while a machine is running.
Measurements can be exported to external software to
calculate and animate the Operating Deflection Shapes (ODS).
Idler sound monitor module
The idler sound monitor module and
accessories were designed to detect faults in
conveyor support and return idler rollers in
mining and cement industries. Using
patented SKF enveloping technology applied
acoustically, it allows users to distinguish
between good and faulty idler rollers
through a simple traffic light color display.
Spindle test module
Developed in conjunction with the SKF
Spindle Services, the spindle test module
performs nine tests on machine tools and
spindles, including imbalance, mechanical
condition, bearing condition, tool nose
runout, clamp force (ISO, HSK), clamp EM,
belt tension, speed accuracy and
resonance frequency.

Expert calibration and repair services
Available at select SKF Solution Factory and CMC locations
Options for SKF validated calibration
The SKF Microlog Analyzer
product range has a suggested
calibration interval of 12
months, which is a requirement for most companies’ ISO
quality control system.
However, some customers
choose not to ship their
instruments to the SKF
factory for calibration. This
may be due to the length of time required to ship the instrument
abroad or, in many cases, because government restrictions
prevent the instruments from being shipped at all or, if shipped,
cause them to incur large export/import charges. Consequently,
some customers turn to local calibration centres that have not
been authorized or trained by SKF, making the calibration invalid.
