SKF, a supplier of bearings, seals, mechatronics, lubrication systems and services, introduced a portable sensor and mobile app for inspection and machine health data collection.

SKF Pulse, through the combination of a handheld sensor and mobile app, allows users to predict machine health issues and improve reliability before operations are impacted. Users are guided through the data-collection process with SKF Pulse’s visual interface, and they can request advanced analysis through SKF Pulse Check directly via the app.

Features of the SKF Pulse sensor include bluetooth communication with iOS mobile devices, a rechargeable lithium battery and measurements of acceleration, temperature and velocity of rotating equipment.

Data and asset information collected can be shared throughout the operation, and one sensor can monitor unlimited assets, according to the company.

“Customers wanted an easier way to conduct routine vibration checks with the ability to quickly get expert help if they need it,” says Josh Flemming, strategic marketing director at SKF. “SKF Pulse offers a combination of features, including easy setup, portability, effortless data collection and immediate insight, regardless of the equipment manufacturer.”
