Airports rely on gangways to allow passengers to board and disembark conveniently. If the gangways fail, getting into the aircraft is much more difficult. One way to prevent gangway disruptions is to use igus e-chains and i.Sense EC.P condition monitoring.
Defective conveyor belts in washing facilities repeatedly lead to expensive damage and breakdowns. So more and more companies are switching to sensor-supported, networked igus e-chains as part of a modernisation effort.
Maintaining heavily used and hard-to-reach bus cables faster than ever is what i.Sense CF.D, the igus monitoring module, can do – and nothing else in the world can. The module automatically recognises the positions of stressed areas in a cable and shows them very precisely in metres. The new optical status display now enables users to intervene quickly in a targeted manner, avoiding time-consuming and costly troubleshooting.
Effective immediately, igus offers the ReBeL service robot – also as a smart version. At €4,970 and only around 8 kilogrammes, the plug-and-play variant is one of the lightest cobots on the market.
This presents a challenge to ports all over the world. The performance of a crane is directly dependent on its electrification system. And that infrastructure must continuously operate without malfunctions seven days a week, 24 hours a day. As there are various power supply options, it can be difficult to make a decision about the right system.
