SKF introduces LRM2 lubrication remote monitor
By Mario Cywinski
SKF has introduced the LRM2 lubrication remote monitor, which is compatible with oil or grease and is designed to be used with lubrication systems that cannot be checked daily.
LRM2 uses a SIM card to send and receive text messages through iOS and Android cell phones or through e-mail. Using two digital inputs and outputs, both low-level and fault messages are sent. An additional lubrication cycle can be started, and the monitor can be reset by sending a messages from a mobile device or computer. No additional software is required as the system can be accessed through a web browser.
LRM2 can be used for single-line, dual-line and progressive lubrication systems, and can communicate with a pump or group of pumps on a same type system. LRM2 can be used for wind energy, railroad wayside, cable car and wastewater treatment applications, and other industries.
The module is available without an enclosure for applications that require mounting in an existing control box.
