The Ultrawave 170 MD Ultrasonic Detector from SDT Canada simplifies complex data collection by allowing users to configure unlimited routes with onboard asset identification. Monitoring the condition of bearings with digital ultrasonic detectors is becoming mainstream practice for predictive maintenance. It’s a reliable method on its own, or as an enhancement to existing vibration analysis programs. Now, technicians can diagnose and store ultrasonic bearing data directly without having to lug around an external data collector. The SDT 170 directly downloads to PC software that can then share the data with other CMMS programs.
