SKF Group (San Diego, CA) has introduced the Multilog Online System DMx, a multi-featured vibration monitor for conventional and hazardous environments. It can be directly installed within a hazardous area, removing or reducing cabling, cabinets, and isolation barriers. It combines protection and condition monitoring in a single device, making it suitable for gas turbines, motors, pumps, and compressors. Features include four dynamic input channels for vibration, axial thrust, and dynamic pressure, with two channels for speed/phase measurement. Multiple LEDs provide local indications of module, channel, alarm status, and diagnostic data. The device can be connected to plant control and information networks by common protocols.
