The MS-2234 is a tablet-based route data collector software that allows connectivity with different Condition Based Monitoring devices, such as wireless accelerometers, thermal image cameras, ultrasonic devices, etc. It also allows to perform visual inspection tasks using the tablet's camera and manual data entry.

The MultiSens Cloud platform allows the creation of routes and interaction with the MS-2234 App. Data from each route can then be uploaded to the cloud platform for trending, analysis and Reporting. See more details of the MultiSens Cloud platform in the MS-Cloud Documentation.

This section will focus on the visual inspection methods.

Routes Dashboard

  1. Open the MS-2234 App and login (the first login will require Internet connectivity). Once the user is logged in for the first time the credentials will be stored in the device if the "Remember Password" switch is set to ON. After this, user can log in with or without Internet connectivity.

  9. Pressing 'Collect Data' (Motor icon) button, will open the data collection user interface. The initial view will be a picture or diagram of the asset with instructions to the technician (the initial view can be changed to default to vibration, thermal image, etc in the main configuration, see Configuration item 2 for more details).

Navigating the Route

  1. The left Panel buttons will allow the user to select different CBM methods (from top to bottom: Ultrasonic, Annotations, Asset Diagram, Vibration, Photo & Thermal Imaging.
  2. The right panel will allow the following options: from top to bottom: 'M▶︎' move to next Machine, 'P▶︎' advance to next Route Point, 'Magnifier' view collected data, 'Hamburger Menu' opens a pop-up with the list of points (see item 3 below), '◀︎M' move to previous Machine, '◀︎P' go to previous Route Point
  3. Pressing the hamburger menu button on the right panel will open a pop-up with the list of all route and off-route points. The user can search or scroll to any point and jump directly to it. This is the only way to access the off-route points.
  4. While navigating the left control panel buttons will show bubbles indicating if the reading was done '✔︎' or skipped '✖︎' for each of the CBM methods.


  1. Press on the Annotations button to show the List of conditions/questions/inspections on the view. The avaialble Annotations are pre-defined in the MS-Cloud Platform for each route point. If the list is not defined it will show the default annotations.
  2. Select the annotation that corresponds to the situation by tapping on each cell, this will automatically move the selected cells to the right selected" list, and will be saved for transmission when the route is uploaded.
  3. Remove any selection by tapping on the "Selected Annotations" cell to be removed.

  1. From the Main menu, click the top left menu button to open the left drawer with more options. Select 'Configuration' from the left menu
  2. The main configuration will allow the user to: i) Set the unit to metric or imperial, ii) Set the amplitude of the vibration to RMS or Pk, iii) Set the spectrum frequency units to CPM, Hz or orders, iv) Set the last readings trend default to acceleration or velocity, v) Set to manually advance to the next uncollected point in the route, vi) Set the initial screen that will appear when goinf into the route, vii) Set the Data Collector user interface type, viii) Select the type of vibration sensor, and ix) Select the type of thermal image camera.
