SKF @ptitude Observer is now at version 10.1.2. The full install applies to new and existing @ptitude Observer users. For existing @ptitude Observer users, you must first uninstall your current @ptitude Observer version and then re-install the latest version (v10.1.2).

Software features and functionality

Multilog IMx firmware v.5.0 supports new features of SKF @ptitude Observer v10.1:

Event Capture capabilities

  • New continuous time waveform collection can be used to investigate very low mechanical/main bearing and high-frequency electrical/generator/planetary stages oscillations in the time wave forms
  • This feature enables captures of long-time waveforms
  • The event capture can be manually started from the software at the press of a button, or started automatically based on an alarm threshold
  • The event capture file can be exported

Multiple Gating Points

  • This new measurement point can reference values from up to five other points and then perform a logical evaluation on the current measurements to determine if the system will take measurements or not

User login/logout logging – Through Database/Users menu

Users can easily switch language 

Update to Machine Parts to select Inner/Outer race rotating ring - When creating bearings in the machine parts window, it is now possible to select which race is rotating 

Order tracking points - Order tracking points show the order corresponding to the selected order analysis shaft

Process Overview enhancements - Edit the foreground and background colors of the labels and also the size of the status icon. Also for a process viewer user it is possible now to right click and logoff to change user right from the process view

Process settings now saved per user - The User preferences dialog has a new “Auto save graph settings for” option with two settings:

  • “Everyone” – This is the old behavior, and is set as the default
  • “Just me” – If a user chooses this option, their settings are saved under their user ID 
    • Changes to the global settings do not affect “Just me” settings 
    • Benefit: other users cannot see or modify these settings. Users don’t have to use the same setting any more on systems with multiple users 
    • Advantage: Ultimate flexibility - Some users can use “Everyone” setting and others can use “Just me”
