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.

More about the sensors in smart plastics condition monitoring systems: Part 1 – the strain gauge sensors in the EC.P system

Richard Habering | 27. April 2022

Strain gauge sensors are small sensors that measure relative changes in length. They often consist of a protective top layer over a wire applied in a zigzag pattern to a thin plastic backing. If the strain gauge sensor (and thus also the wire) is compressed, its resistance decreases; if it is stretched, its resistance increases. Elongation can be calculated from the change in resistance. You can use this characteristic by applying strain gauges to components whose elongation you want to determine.

This is how quickly you can save money with smart condition monitoring systems

Richard Habering | 8. March 2022

However, the financial benefits of Condition Monitoring Systems are often difficult to assess, especially because the initial investment in a modern condition monitoring system does not initially reduce costs, but rather increases them. Therefore, in the next sections, we will look at the financial impact over the entire utilisation period with a break-even analysis based on practical experience in an automotive production hall.

Visualise condition monitoring system easily with the help of 3D data and schedule it at an early stage

Richard Habering | 7. February 2022

Condition monitoring systems are designed to eliminate unplanned downtime of machines and industrial plants by means of permanent condition monitoring. With the aid of 3D visualisations, these i.Sense systems can be integrated early in the design process.

Intelligent push/pull force monitoring of energy chains: What to do when the i.Sense EC.P is triggered?

Richard Habering | 17. January 2022

Today we want to look at the operational application of smart plastics’ intelligent push/pull force monitoring. More specifically, ask the question, What to do if i.Sense EC.P has triggered once? What measures are then to be carried out to quickly reactivate the system again?
