The new SKF Multilog IMx-8 on-line system introduces compact and cost-effective technology for monitoring the condition of industrial rotating machinery. This versatile device offers 8 analog output channels with connectivity to mobile devices and laptops for easy configuration and monitoring. The system equips users with a 24/7 monitoring solution to detect machine faults early, integrate automatic recognition to correct existing or impending conditions, and contribute to condition-based maintenance program objectives.

The IMx-8 is the newest addition to SKF’s versatile IMx systems portfolio. Unlike its 16 and 32 channel variants, the IMx-8 takes up little cabinet space and is ideally designed for installation into instrument cabinet enclosures. Suitably housed, the system also serves space-restricted applications where instruments may need to be located as closely as possible to the monitored machinery. An app-based configuration interface is especially user-friendly, allowing for setup with little or no previous experience. The IMx-8 is DIN-rail mounted.

The system’s 8 analog signal outputs can be configured for a variety of sensors to ascertain acceleration, velocity, and displacement, among other parameters. Individual warning and alarm levels controlled by machine speed or load can be set for each measurement point. Built-in auto-diagnosis can check all sensors, cabling, and electronics for any faults, signal interruption, shorts, or power failure and then automatically alert when problems are found.

The IMx-8 features enhanced internal memory (4GB) to enable stand-alone monitoring and logging of large amounts of data, which can be easily accessed for analysis following a critical event.

All IMx systems can run on an existing LAN or WAN and network with computers, printers, and servers, or over the internet. The timely and true simultaneous measurements of the various operating parameters ultimately can guide in improving machine reliability, availability, and performance.
