Remote condition monitoring of energy chains??? This little wonder box makes it possible: the SMS module

Richard Habering | 18. May 2022

Internet of Things, big data and autonomous robots: the transition to Industry 4.0 is in full swing. This also applies to components that work in machines and have long since become smart by providing data on their condition, for example. But integrating smart technologies is often complex for companies and involves external installation effort. This is exactly where we start with the SMS module for our i.Sense systems.

We rotate to infinity and much more!

dklein | 18. March 2022

But how far can it go for you?In today’s blog we would like to devote ourselves to the topic of rotating energy supply. Typical industries and applications are handling machines, robots & packaging machines. The big difference in determining the energy chain length compared to linear motion is in the travel. Linear movements usually involve […]

Fast AND smart: the micro flizz safely guides energy, data and media … even in the Industrial Internet of Things.

Richard Habering | 5. November 2021

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.

“Last line of defence” – How i.Sense EC.P saved an international port operator from massive total failure

Richard Habering | 26. October 2021

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.
