Condition monitoring

Condition monitoring

If smart plastics are used for condition monitoring, they immediately report any unexpected operating state, switch off the system or sound an alarm. In this way, industrial manufacturers minimise system failures and downtime. Do you want to use machines, components and resources effectively with all the available digital advantages? Would you like to use smart plastics® to pursue a practical, cost-efficient method of promoting digitalisation in your company?

Products for condition monitoring of cables

Tensile force monitoring for cables CF.P

Tensile force monitoring for cables with CF.P

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

Product: CF.P sensor

To the CF.P product page

Cable quality monitoring with CF.Q

  • Measures the quality of the cable cores
  • Sends a signal in the event of a core rupture or stops the system via a normally closed contact if desired
Product: Sensor CF.Q

To the CF.Q product page


In the case of an existing or imminent defect, the sensors inform the system and recommend a stop. It operates without any additional external data-processing modules.
Integration of the isense for predictive maintenance, however, is possible at any time.
