Designed for use by expert and novice users alike, the Advisor Pro is ideal for service, maintenance, inspection, and diagnostic applications. This three-channel, portable maintenance tool is new to the SKF Microlog family of products. As such, it combines all of the features customers have come to expect from an SKF Microlog, combined with an intuitive user interface, simple wizard-driven measurement instructions, and an automated analysis system based on pre-programmed ISO standards. Green, yellow and red color-codes quickly and clearly indicate test status, invalid or abnormal measurements, and machinery condition.

“The Microlog Adviser Pro puts a range of maintenance and diagnostic tasks in the hands of experts and non-experts alike,” said Paul Edwards, Product Manager, SKF.  “The Advisor Pro is a productivity tool for service, maintenance and inspection teams, giving fast and easy to understand diagnosis, with the ability to expand the tool’s functionality as analysis needs change - without the need to purchase another instrument. But it’s not all about the specifications. We know our customers look at the bigger picture when investing in maintenance equipment. SKF Microlog has been, and remains at the leading edge of condition monitoring and vibration analysis technology. This pedigree gives our customers security, and with SKF, they get the confidence and peace of mind from working with one of the most respected and widely-used vibration data analysis and industrial global service brands in the world.”

Ergonomically designed and easy to use, the Microlog Advisor Pro features an easy-to-read, 25,600-line resolution color display, an advanced computing engine, high-performance data acquisition hardware and DSP technology, and a 40 kHz Fmax. The unit also features extended battery life for up to eight hours of continuous use, as well as easy memory upgrades via SD card. If required, data can be output for further analysis and report generation.

In addition, a range of pre-configured, application-specific kits are available that provide users with all associated accessories and sensors, as well as modules such as Spindle Assessment and Idler Sound Monitor.

The SKF Microlog Advisor Pro also can be provided with a PC-based Analysis and Reporting module. Once data is uploaded to this module, it is automatically shown in the application main window, and a single mouse click is all that is needed to view the data in a powerful, interactive graphical plot. The Analysis and Reporting Module also provides a range of post-processing features that allow you to get the most out of your SKF Microlog Advisor Pro data.  Additionally, a full range of Microlog accessories are available.

Further enhancing the flexibility of the Microlog Advisor Pro, a range of application modules are available, allowing users to create a custom device that suits their individual requirements. Modules can be added as a user’s needs develop, increasing the value of the hardware investment by upgrading capabilities without the need to buy a new instrument. Application modules include Balancing; Bump Analysis; Recorder; Frequency Response Function; Run up/Coast down and Check to Conformance. This range of application modules allows users to perform several advanced tasks - such as impact tests, digital recording, modal analysis, transient phenomena analysis and quality inspections - all with the same device.
