The new i.Sense EC.W sensor makes more system availability even more cost-effective than before. Due to the direct connection of the PLC machine control via potential-free contacts, real-time status monitoring for your gliding energy supply systems is possible from EUR 248.00 (in Germany).
For this purpose, the service life sensor is installed on one of the last crossbars on the fixed end side and records the current condition of the chain side parts with sensor technology from the in-house igus 3D printing; either directly for the PLC system control or via optional i.Cee module for comprehensive monitoring systems. This means that i.Sense EC.W makes it easier to avoid downtime and increase system availability.
Part number: IS.EC.W.FIX.E4.XX.BETA
"Less maintenance effort, greater availability, the capability of guiding all different cables and hoses in a single system, intelligent i.Sense condition monitoring … I would definitely choose the intelligent igus energy chains again!"
Dipl.-Ing. Fabian Wilhelm, Project Manager for AOS Stade GmbH
Whether in international automotive production, the global crane industry or regional wastewater plants: i.Sense systems are successfully used and maintenance costs are saved and machine downtime prevented.
To the application overview
When regular maintenance work requires complete production shutdown ...
When motion anomalies cannot be detected by humans in time ...
If plants or machines need to be monitored frequently or continuously ...
If energy supply system travels are difficult to access or view ...
If maintenance work poses a health or safety risk ...
If maintenance costs are to be reduced and service life extended ...
No more battery changes. The sliding feeder's abrasion condition is communicated with the LoRa radio transmission standard to i.Cee:box or i.Cee:plus.
Energy is supplied from the solar panel. Graduated percentage service life information is provided across four sensor layers.
Since the new EC.W sensor is part of the smart plastics i.Sense condition monitoring system, all of its data can also be evaluated in the i.Cee control cabinet module. These data can then be used to digitally control the system's alarm and escalation management.
The i.Cee module can be integrated into predictive maintenance concepts in a number of ways, from preventive service management, which schedules regular maintenance depending on use, to location-independent fault management, which immediately reports any unforeseen change via various mobile channels. All information is collated in a modern dashboard, online or offline in the local network, depending on the customer's requirements.
