1212spm1SPM Instrument, inventor of the original Shock Pulse Method and the patented SPM-HD® measuring technique, continues to broaden the scope of condition monitoring to include more machinery than ever before. Examples include:

SPM Leonova® Diamond

The portable Leonova Diamond was designed for rough industrial environments with a carbon-fiber-reinforced housing. Lightweight, yet sophisticated, it provides a powerful combination of well-proven measuring techniques for every situation, all in one instrument.

Bearing Monitoring as You’ve Never Seen It

Where established methods fail, SPM-HD® detects deteriorating bearing condition and incipient failures with impressive accuracy and exceptional pre-warning times.

Ultra-Low-Speed Bearing Monitoring

Low-RPM applications have been beyond the limits of established monitoring techniques—until nowSPM-HD® is able to accurately measure rolling element bearings rotating from 1 RPM to 20,000 RPM. Advanced and patent-pending digital algorithms provide very high measuring dynamics with results presented in never-before-seen detail. Razor-sharp spectrums and time signals bring root cause analysis to a new level of understanding.

High-Definition Order Tracking

Careful engineering and optimal use of digital technology in the design of SPM’s HD Order Tracking product allow for more precise measurements and more detailed spectrums than ever before.

3-Channel High-Performance Vibration Analysis

Leonova® Diamond provides razor-sharp spectrums—even if signals are weak and low in energy content. It will measure vibration severity for general machine condition, as well as velocity, acceleration and displacement according to ISO 10816 standards. 

In addition to RMS vibration readings, the instrument displays an FFT spectrum. Enveloping with band and high-pass filters can be selected to optimize analysis. 

The EVAM® measuring technique provides pre-programmed evaluation models for time and frequency domain parameters. 25600-line FFTs to 40 kHz spec-trums with true zoom makes the Leonova Diamond a powerful portable analytical tool for every industry.

Corrective Techniques

Leonova® Diamond provides sophisticated tools for root cause analysis and corrective maintenance. In addition to standard functions such as an Electronic Stethoscope, Laser Tachometer with Temperature, there are a number of modular functions, including Motor Current Analysis, Run Up/Coast Down, Bump Test, Laser Shaft Alignment and Dynamic Balancing, that can be added to the instrument at any time.

Power-Packed Software

Containing the expert knowledge needed to evaluate machine condition, Condmaster® Ruby collects and stores results from all SPM handheld and online measuring devices for evaluation and presentation—and does it all by way of a single powerful software package.
