Breakage detection in energy chains with smart plastics EC.B

Richard Habering | 6. January 2021

What is breakage detection (EC.B)? EC.B breakage detection in energy chains is a condition monitoring system. Installing this system allows extremely fast detection of breakage in any link in the e-chain®. This immediate detection of breakage in the energy chain can prevent expensive damage while increasing equipment reliability. Components of an EC.B system? The system […]


A clever practical example of EC. P condition monitoring

Richard Habering | 2. December 2020

Worum geht es? Beim Abbau sowie bei der anschließenden Lagerung von Bauxit, einemSedimentgestein zur Aluminiumoxidproduktion, bildet sich eine MengeStaub, der vor allem für die beweglichen Maschinenteile derFördereinheiten eine große Herausforderung darstellt. Um den Einsatz von Energieketten noch sicherer und gleichzeitig auch bequemer zu machen, kommt die Zustandsüberwachung (Condition Monitoring) EC.P zum Einsatz. Was ein EC.P […]


Condition monitoring on the energy chain (i.Sense EC. P)

Richard Habering | 13. November 2020

Nowadays, the field of condition monitoring is all-encompassing. There are hardly any things or places that are not permanently monitored. Some people already associate the concept of monitoring with negative aspects from this point on. However, in the field of energy supply, condition monitoring should be a positive, useful, helpful and safe monitoring. The ultimate […]


robolink application under water

Martin Raak | 28. January 2015

This submarine robot has been developped by our german customer Habib Nasri from Leibnitz University Hannover, iPeG Institute. It is fully submersible and it is gesture controlled. It contains 1 simple arm with 2 DOF and one more complex arm with 4 DOF, all robolink joints are equipped with our “under water angle sensors”. The 6 […]
