- select the machine(s) to be transfered
- click on “Export” the selected items to a disk drive or another folder
- save the new database as an SQLCe file :
- select “All Values” and “Copy files” to transfer also the files from the recorded
You can also select only the « last values » with files to save space on hard drive.

ISO 10816 stablishes values accordingly with the following machine classes :
Select the most apropiate values accordingly with the machine you are setting up, or accordingly with the normal working vibration levels depending on the kind of machine. A standard ventilator has different normal vibration levels than a compressor or a precision grinding machine.
Values in Velocity units are for low-frequency vibrations like imbalance, misalignment, looseness. etc. Values in Acceleration Envelope units are for high-frequency vibrations like bearings and gearboxes.
The left tree-database displays a color for:
- the Maximum Alarm level of the Company and Area
