WebLog Import for SKF CMS data enables the automated integration of measurement data from existing SKF Condition Monitoring systems with a Bachmann WebLog Server, to allow a uniform approach to vibration monitoring.

This enables monitoring and diagnosis through the various tools provided by Bachmann‘s WebLog Portal or WebLog Expert® software, including reporting and the use of the ticket system. Machines equipped with SKF CMS can therefore be monitored using the same functionalities and processes as those equipped with Bachmann CMS.

Measurement data transferred from the CMS to an SKF database is processed by Bachmann’s WebLog Interface1), which converts the source data into Bachmann format and calculates spectral data and characteristic values.

Analogous to measurement data from a Bachmann CMS, the converted data is available on the WebLog Server for further evaluation and analysis using WebLog Portal or WebLog Expert®.

Permanent storage of the data is provided by WebLog Server, so long term storage of the original source data does not need to be retained on the SKF database after the import has been configured.

If changes to the system‘s measurement con-figuration are required, Bachmann experts will be happy to provide support. These adjustments must be made using the appropriate SKF application software.

Optionally, the transfer and temporary intermediate storage of data from the CMS can also be carried out by Bachmann on our network, providing suitable communications access is provided.

1) Detailed information on the WebLog Interface can be found in the corresponding product data sheet

The data collected by the SKF CMS is sent to a monitor server via a router2) in the wind farm, which forwards the data to a SKF database on a MSSQL server for temporary storage.
From there, the WebLog Interface transfers the existing source data to a WebLog Server and offers the possibility to perform the following processing steps:

2) If the communication routes and the server infrastructure are changed, customer-specific changes to the router configuration may become necessary
