Each SKF Microlog ships with all of the modules installed to enable quick and easy in-the-field upgrades by entering an additional license key.

Refer to the SKF Microlog Series Product Catalogue for details about each available module.
Frequency Response Function (FRF) module
Run up Coast down (RuCd) module
Conformance Check module
FFT Analyzer module
Balancing module
Data Recorder module
Spindle Test module
The SKF Spindle Assessment kit has been developed in conjunction with the SKF Machine Tool Precision Services and performs nine tests on machine tool spindles (fig 7):
  • Imbalance
  • Mechanical condition
  • Bearing condition
  • Tool nose run out
  • Clamp force (ISO, HSK)
  • EM distance
  • Belt tension
  • Speed accuracy
  • Resonant frequency
SKF Idler Sound Monitor module
Designed for early detection of faults in conveyor belt support and return idler rollers in industries such as mining and cement, the SKF Idler Sound Monitor module allows users to distinguish between good and faulty idler rollers (fig 8). Use of this module will help detect:
  • Damaged idler bearings
  • Lack of lubrication in bearings
  • Damaged idler shells
  • Metal-to-metal rubbing
  • Rumbling from abrasion with conveyor belts
  • Bearings that are about to seize
Route module
The Route module (fig 9) allows users to carry out routine data collection, using a multi-parameter approach, to collect and trend data to help diagnose machinery faults. Users can set up single channel, dual or simultaneous triaxial measurements using SKF @ptitude Analyst software. Measurements can be sequenced for the most efficient data collection regardless of their location in your measurement database hierarchy.
