This paper is concerned with the preventive maintenance of roller and journal bearings installed in induction motors. Almost all kinds of failure modes happening on both roller and journal bearings have been reproduced and classified using time and frequency domain data analysis. Diagnostic procedure also has been derived using these analyzed results and statistical method. Finally, an actual diagnostic system for the early stage detection of defected roller bearings has been developed for practical field use.
