Smart control for long battery lifeThe battery-powered SKF Machine Condition Indicator conserves energy by “sleeping” most of the time, waking up eight times per day at preset intervals to take measurements. Once activated, the SKF Machine Condition Indicator begins taking measurements immediately, evaluating current machine vibration level. If any level does not meet a minimum alarm threshold, the SKF Machine Condition Indicator goes back to sleep to eliminate taking data when the machine is not running.
Verification and adaptive alarmingIf the SKF Machine Condition Indicator detects an alarm condition, it automatically verifies the condition by re-taking its measurements. This process helps rule out transient conditions and false alarms. If the alarm level is exceeded by only a small amount, the SKF Machine Condition Indicator may verify the condition for two to twelve hours before it displays the red alarm LEDs. If the alarm level is exceeded by a large amount, the SKF Machine Condition Indicator recognizes this and performs fewer verifications of the alarm condition before displaying an alarm condition. Stronger alarms display the red alarm LEDs sooner than the weaker alarms, and all alarms are verified. Once the SKF Machine Condition Indicator has verified the alarm, red LEDs blink in a specific blink pattern according to the measurement type in alarm for a duration of one week.
