Condition monitoring

SYNT series

SKF ConCentra roller bearing units in the SYNT series are prepared for condition monitoring as they have three flat surfaces cast into the housing (fig. 1).
Positions 1 and 3 are perpendicular to the shaft, and should be used when the unit is hung from its support or when the load acts away from or toward the support surface.
Position 2 is a measurement point parallel to the shaft and should be used when axial loads occur.

FYNT series

Accelerometers with magnets that can accommodate rounded surfaces can be attached to bearing units in the FYNT series (fig. 2).
Position 1 (360° surface area) is perpendicular to the shaft, and should be used when the load acts away from or toward the support surface.
Position 2 (360° surface area) is parallel to the shaft and should be used when axial loads occur.
