SKF has launched the SKF Laser Vibrometer MSL-7000, a digital, integrated, single-box vibrometer that has been developed specifically for non-contact vibration measurements. The MSL-7000 offers service engineers an advanced, flexible and robust tool for collecting vibration measurements in a large number of different field applications.

The development of the MSL-7000 meets the need of an increasing number of customers who wish to conduct end-of-line noise testing for their products, especially for “noise critical” applications such as fans, electric motors, pumps and household appliances. The design is easy to integrate into test set-ups and existing control systems and covers acoustic measurements from 0.2 Hz (for slow rotations) up to 22 kHz. The MSL-7000 can also be used for mobile condition monitoring, together with the SKF Microlog series, where it enables non-contact measurements that could not be taken before, such as measurements on hot surfaces and through glass.

“The SKF Laser Vibrometer can help customers who need advanced and flexible vibration measurement, regardless whether they are doing retro-fitted quality inspection or if they are doing vibration measurement in difficult locations”, says Werner Palmetshofer, General Manager Condition Monitoring Centre in Steyr, Austria.

The robust and compact, single-unit meter design offers both easy installation and operation and because it employs non-contact measurement the MSL-7000 is significantly less subject to wear, making it an efficient and cost-effective tool.

The MSL-7000 was developed to be used on its own for end-of-line inspection or together with SKF condition monitoring products, such as the SKF Microlog family of portable vibration monitoring and data collection instruments, thus offering additional value to all customers. In addition, a package, MSL 7000C, for laptop use with the SKF FPM Software and a mobile data acquisition card is available.
