A small investment with a big effect: the latest generation of i.Sense CF.D monitoring sensors check the electrical condition of chainflex cables in e-chain systems – without contact and without interfering with the existing harnessing. As a result, the real-time monitoring of this concept study does not require any sacrificial wires and in combination with the new i.Cee: plus II evaluation module, enables even more efficient predictive maintenance for protection against cost-intensive system failures.
Digging through hundreds of components step by step to put together the right energy chain system? No longer necessary thanks to the new iSet assemblies
“Condition monitoring”, “predictive maintenance”, “Internet of Things” … It can all make your head spin. A ready-to-install smart plastics complete set including simple step-by-step instructions allows you to get started relatively quickly in networked production. Recently, it has become very easy to configure them in the igus online shop and order them directly online.
Guiding energy, data and media in the tightest of spaces at high speeds is a major challenge for many users, such as those working in intralogistics. The igus micro flizz offers a compact energy supply system for travels of up to 100 metres. If the user wants to monitor his bus cable's transmission characteristics, igus now offers the intelligent CF.D system. It monitors the cable's data transmission characteristics predictively and warns of failure in good time.
The port – a harsh and salty environment with high machine duty cycles, not a place for unexpected system downtime. Heavy loads, long operating times and a wide variety of weatherconditions – cranes in port facilities have to deliver top performance. To ensure this at all times, reliable condition monitoring concepts are needed. I would like to briefly explain how this looks in practice and what advantages it creates for the users using the following 'best practice' example of an international port operator.
