SKF Wireless MicroVibe

The most cost-effective solution for portable, wireless
vibration monitoring.

Background & History

The SKF MicroVibe (CMVL 3810) was first released in late 2002 by SKF Reliability
Systems. The platform was a Handspring Visor with Palm OS.

In October 2004, Condition Monitoring Center – San Diego launched the SKF
MicroVibe P (CMVL 3850) for Pocket PC’s with Windows Mobile 2003 and later
Windows Mobile 5.0

In July 2009 the SKF MicroVibe P for Pocket PC’s (CMVL 3860) with Windows Mobile
6.0 was launched.

In July 2011 HP announced the obsolescence of it’s Pocket PC series and the
rugged Trimble unit was introduced.

The SKF MicroVibe P series was obsoleted in July 2012.

2014, the new SKF Wireless MicroVibe communicates wirelessly between the sensor
and a tablet with Android operating system (or Android smart phone), while
maintaining the same functionality as the SKF MicroVibe P.
