Scarborough, ON — Jan. 29, 2003 — The MicroVibe, a portable vibration test and measurement instrument from SKF Reliability Systems, makes sophisticated analysis of rotating equipment available to virtually any technician who has access to a Handspring PDA (personal digital assistant).

Low-cost, compact and lightweight, the MicroVibe is the first vibration test and measurement instrument made to be used with a PDA.

It uses advanced features, including user-selectable measurements (English or metric), and offers vibration time-waveform standards, enabling an immediate assessment of a machine’s condition.

MicroVibe will accept a variety of sensors, including accelerometers and electro-dynamic velocity pickups. No special training is required to use it.
