Timken’s StatusCheck wireless condition monitoring system helps industrial customers identify potential machine malfunctions before catastrophic failures occur by transmitting vibration and temperature data from bearings, bearing housings, gear boxes, motors and other industrial devices. These early-warning signals enable maintenance teams to schedule repairs and avoid costly unscheduled downtime. Each system includes up to 100 wireless transmitters, a data receiver and a companion software program. Transmitters can be mounted with magnets or bolts, providing flexible mounting options on hard-to-reach machines. When alarms are triggered, the software notifies maintenance personnel by e-mail, cell phone or PDA.
