Versatile, modular, and easy to interlink
The ProLink multi-channel condition monitoring system monitors the condition of machines and equipment by means of vibration measurement.
The ProLink condition monitoring system offers:
- Templates for monitoring rolling bearings, motors, gearboxes, fans, and pumps that make further configuration easier. Information about the machine geometry, such as the installed bearing type or the number of fan blades, is all that is required.
- The learning mode allows individual adjustments to alarm thresholds in order to optimize monitoring
- In the future, customers will be given the opportunity to optionally use the ConditionAnalyzer via the integrated cloud interface.
Optimally suited for machine monitoring in complex systems:
The advantages for you at a glance
The ProLink condition monitoring system offers versatile options for easy integration into your infrastructure for distributing measured data and can be flexibly used thanks to its modular and scalable design.
By providing all of the information required for visualizing your machines’ condition, the ProLink condition monitoring system ensures a high level of transparency.
Thanks to the high signal quality, the ProLink condition monitoring system makes predictive maintenance and optimum machine availability possible
The ProLink condition monitoring system simplifies the use of digital services and Industry 4.0 solutions
- Simple initial operation thanks to the automatic monitoring configuration for standard units such as motors, fans, and pumps
- Configuration, trend displays, and initial analyses take place directly on the device using the integrated web server and a standard web browser
- A great variety of options for integration into your infrastructure using digital interfaces (e.g. ÜPCIUA) and a modular field bus module. This allows the highest possible level of transparency by providing all measured information about the machines’ condition, e.g. for the customer’s own plant visualization, maintenance planning system, and quality assurance

Schaeffler offers a standardized hardware and software infrastructure – from components equipped with sensors through to digital services.
One component is the ProLink condition monitoring system. It offers the perfect setup in combination with the ConditionAnalyzer – the automatic vibration diagnosis system.
Schaeffler sensors record the vibrations on the machine while the ProLink condition monitoring system analyzes the overall vibration condition as well as component-specific vibrations, e.g. in bearings, gears, etc.
- All parameters and alarm statuses can be transmitted to the control room and the machine control system using OPC UA
- The alarm condition can also be transmitted simultaneously to a maintenance planning system via OPC UA. The appropriate maintenance measures can then be initiated from there
- High costs incurred by a stoppage can thus be reliably prevented
