From what I gather the Hawk is a troubleshooting device, doesn't do trending.
It is for stand-alone diagnostics. There are preset report templates built into it. You take readings and then the auto diagnostic spits out a report, you can then print it off, something like a better version of the dreadful Fluke 810 from a few years ago(anyone remember that?)
The Falcon is a route based instrument and runs with software to generate the reports on the analysis software.

In my view Hawk is the entry level version with the wired sensor option but something may have developed since I saw it last, you never know. Color also differ.

The one thing I toally dislike re all these brands is that they do NOT research their target market. (I worked for SKF amfd they did not do their research either)  Shame on them. They just all want to reinvent the wheel. Even fixed speed is variablepeed. Same with one pro. they did nod have a good look at what is already out there.  The  proper Engineer will know.  Those in the knoww like Oil and no doubdt others. per machines ar all about. rant over now... sorry for that.  Those that don't do variable speed dont do it well enough.  i am about to go on another tor of a refinery wher it is prettery much all fixd speed. for me it is alll good. 1x is 1x 2 times is 2. and anythiug non sunych is bearing.. I love my job.

OneProd/Acoem is former Framatom/Areva and major customer are all the nukes in France and those Areva are building so they know their customers and it is not paper-industry.

Ferdy,

You're right. I shouldn't ask so much. After all, his intelligence is only artificial.

It seems like they could make an input for the number of poles in the motor and teach it to look for just over that number x running speed and know that it is 2 x lf.  It's true in Europe, Australia, the US, or even on a variable frequency drive.

OLI,
Do you use the Accurex settings or do you use the templates for vibe parameters?

Thanks

I never used anything automatic in any system, we make our own templates and store for future use and then normally have template machines and just copy past complete similar setups.
Accurex is a new fancy name on the web based setup? It may have improved after we left them but never used that stuff, when it came we already had setups for standard things and we don't
add any new in that system. We use the online MVX for special consulting like helicopters and gas turbines and we use the "old" software for both MVX and Falcon and for the MVX we still customize setups in each case even that they are based on standard setups. Only use the web stuff to load and unload data from Falcon as I have to.
