Sensors for smart energy chains

 

Production monitoring: predictive maintenance

Module: icom.plus

icom. plus/isense offline  
The module displays the initially calculated time of fault-free operation on the equipment monitor.

  • Module for the isense offline system
  • Display by means of the equipment monitor
  • Alarm function in the event of problems
  • Indication in good time that maintenance is necessary

Suitable sensors

EC.W

EC.W  
Sensor for energy chain abrasion

  • Can be connected to icom/icom.plus
  • Predictive maintenance
  • Measures wear at crossbar, pin/bore connection or liner, depending on the equipment
  • Compares specified algorithms with real use data

EC.I

EC.I  
Non-contact measurement of e-chain wear

  • Can be connected to icom/icom.plus plus
  • Predictive maintenance
  • Integrated in the chain link, the component subjected to the greatest mechanical stress
  • Measures the wear of pin/bore connection in per cent, without contact occurring
  • Sends a signal if the specified limit is reached

EC.PP

EC.PP  
Sensor for position-sensitive push/pull force measurement

  • Integrates a positioning system into e-chain
  • Supplies information on position-dependent push/pull forces
  • Position information from the application can be used for other purposes

Module: icom

icom module  
Due to digital networking, the module shows the length of time of fault-free operation in real time.

  • Continuous overview of the service life in real time, in all parts of the production plant thanks to "machine learning"
  • Module for the isense online system
  • Comparison with igus cloud via IoT
  • Indication of information through web dashboard or customer display
  • Definition of limits and alarm if limits are exceeded
  • Alarm output on dashboard and also by e-mail and SMS

Suitable sensors

EC.M

EC.M  
Sensor for movement on e-chains

  • Detects values such as acceleration, speed, temperature and cycles
  • Supplies data for calculation of the minimum fault-free operating time

EC.I

EC.I  
Non-contact measurement of e-chain wear

  • Integrated in the chain link, the component subjected to the greatest mechanical stress
  • Measures the wear of pin/bore connection in per cent, without contact occurring
  • Sends a signal if the specified limit is reached

EC.W

EC.W  
Sensor for energy chain abrasion

  • Measures wear at crossbar, pin/bore connection or liner, depending on the type of sensor
  • Compares specified algorithms with the real use data

EC.PP

EC.PP  
Sensor for position-sensitive push/pull force measurement

  • Positioning system integrated into e-chain
  • Supplies information on position-dependent push/pull forces
  • Position information from the application can be used for other purposes

Production monitoring: crash avoidance

In the area of production monitoring whereby energy chain "crash avoidance" is implemented, a module is not necessary.
The system can be used as an isense stand-alone system that can be integrated and networked within the existing production infrastructure.

Suitable sensors

EC.P

EC.P  
Push/pull force monitoring

  • Measures the push/pull forces acting on the e-chain
  • Recommends shutdown of the equipment if a force limit is exceeded

EC.B

EC.B  
Sensor for detection of e-chain breakage

  • Detects chain breakage in the early stages
  • Prevents overloading and subsequent system failures

CF.P

CF.P  
Sensor for measuring tensile forces on cables

  • Measures the forces directly at the strain relief element
  • Triggers a shutdown by means of the NC contact if forces are excessive

EC.T

EC.T  
Sensor for glide bar wear in troughs

  • Measures glide bar abrasion
  • Determines the remaining service life in days
  • When a defined percentage degree of wear is reached, a signal is transmitted to a module
