Machinery vibration monitor for intrinsically safe applications

SKF introduces a multi-featured vibration monitor for both conventional and hazardous environments. The SKF Multilog On-line System DMx combines both protection (to help avoid catastrophic failures) and condition monitoring functionality in a single device, making it useful for monitoring critical machinery such as gas turbines, generator sets, motors, pumps and compressors.

SKF introduces a multi-featured vibration monitor for both conventional and hazardous environments. The SKF Multilog On-line System DMx combines both protection (to help avoid catastrophic failures) and condition monitoring functionality in a single device, making it useful for monitoring critical machinery such as gas turbines, generator sets, motors, pumps and compressors in the hydrocarbon processing industry (HPI), power generation industry, and other applications. Awarded ATEX, IECEx, and cULus certifications, the DMx monitoring system can be directly installed within a hazardous area, removing or reducing cabling, cabinets and isolation barriers. Features include four dynamic input channels for vibration, axial thrust and dynamic pressure, with two channels for speed/phase measurements. Multiple LEDs provide local indications of module, channel and alarm status and diagnostic data. The device functions as an independent monitor or as a complete system connecting to plant-wide fieldbus infrastructure and SKF’s asset management tool, @ptitude Monitoring Suite. www.skf.com SKF
