Better data collection from hazardous areas

30 March 2020

SKF has gained hazardous area approval for its QuickCollect sensor, which collects vibration and temperature data. This new approval allows the sensor to be used in places that would previously have required a ‘hot work’ permit.

The certification opens up condition monitoring applications in a range of sectors, including petrochemical, mining and marine industries. It also brings digitalisation of data into hazardous areas, which up to now is a relative rarity.

The sensor is certified to both the international IECEx and European ATEX standards, for use in Zone 1 hazardous areas. 

The QuickCollect sensor can be used in conjunction with SKF’s ProCollect mobile app which connects the sensor to SKF’s web-based software platform, Enlight Centre. Together, this creates a portable condition monitoring system, called SKF Enlight ProCollect, that offers direct access to SKF’s experts in remote diagnostic services.

The package is available as a subscription service, which is charged monthly or annually. This model allows SKF to tailor the package to the customer’s exact needs.
