Service life monitoring for all e-chains

  • New sensors allow measurement of percentage bolt/hole connection abrasion levels
  • Cost reduction through clear measurement of the service life of the product –  avoidance of an early replacement of the e-chain system®
  • Output of service life information and warnings via HMI systems or the local network
  • Transmission of sensor and dynamic data via a newly developed LoRa module 
Integrated service life monitoring with smart plastics
