SKF Multilog On-line System IMx-S is designed to monitor condition of critical assets
The SKF Multilog On-line System IMx-S is designed to monitor the condition of critical steel mill assets 24/7 and detect faults. This robust, programmable, and modular technology is constructed to be tailored to accommodate a wide range of challenging mill conditions, including harsh operating environments, process parameter changes between steel grades, variable and low-speed equipment, shock loads, and frequent roll changes. Typical applications are made to include main drive roughing and finishing stand gearboxes and pinion stands, rolling mill work and backup roll bearings, and fans, among others.
The Multilog On-line System IMx-S is built to provide timely and true simultaneous measurements of key operating parameters with the objective to track changes for analysis and take necessary remedial actions in advance of failure. Depending on model, the system is constructed to incorporate either 16 or 32 analog signal inputs configurable for a variety of sensors to ascertain and measure parameters including temperature, vibration, acceleration, velocity, and displacement. Individual warning and alarm levels controlled by machine speed or load are made to be able to be set for each measurement point. The system is designed to run on an existing LAN or WAN and network with computers, printers, and servers, or over the Internet.
The unit’s built-in hardware auto-diagnosis capability is constructed to check all sensors, cabling, and electronics for any faults, signal interruption, shorts, or power failure and then is designed to alert the user should problems in the system be found.
