SKF adds powerful new diagnostic tool to condition monitoring portfolio
Building on decades of experience supporting customers seeking to optimize their maintenance activities based on condition monitoring, SKF recently released the new SKF Microlog Analyzer dBX to the market.
SKF has extended its Microlog Analyzer family of data collection devices with a new model that offers faster measurement collection and greater diagnostic power.
“The new SKF Microlog Analyzer dBX is part of our broad portfolio of condition monitoring solutions,” says Janne Westerlund, director Services & Technologies EMEA at SKF. “Built on state-of-the-art technologies, it is a powerful tool for stand-alone troubleshooting as well as part of a comprehensive predictive maintenance programme. SKF Microlog Analyzer dBX, together with our analytic software, is providing best-in-class information and insights of customers’ rotating asset health.”
This unique portable solution coupled with analytic software significantly improves the way maintenance of rotating machines is scheduled, establishing the correct diagnostic rapidly, thanks to its embedded features.

When used as part of a condition monitoring solution, the SKF Microlog Analyzer dBX can detect issues with rotating machinery quickly and accurately.
“Our new SKF Microlog Analyzer dBX takes measurement with our MPA-in-a-flash method, which makes the device extremely powerful,” says Christophe Andre, project manager at SKF. “Multi-Point Acquisition (MPA) is our fastest vibration analysis method. It is typically three times faster than the previous Microlog series, saving you time taking measurements and helping to collect data more efficiently.”
The device allows the user to carry out a range of tasks including impact tests, digital recording, modal analysis, multi-plane balancing and cross channel phase. It can be applied in any type of industry, including pulp & paper, food & beverage, renewable energy, mining, off-highway, metals, automation and marine.
The SKF Microlog Analyzer dBX is backwards compatible with SKF’s proven existing Microlog CMXA Series and adds new technology, including a high-resolution, 10.1-inch screen that can display up to six measurement windows at the same time, and an embedded camera. Furthermore, it features a hybrid touch and keypad control as well as a simplified navigation, making it more comfortable and easier to use.
