iSense EC.I.NEW  

Service life monitoring for all
e-chain® installation types

Integrated offline service life monitoring for unsupported and roller chain applications

Excess clearance between a chain link's bolt and hole is a clear indication of the decreasing service life of an e-chain system®. The EC. I. SU.02 sensor measures this clearance in clear percentage increments and sends it via LoRa to the icom. plus module. There, the remaining service life is calculated from movement data from the system's control system and a replacement recommendation made as necessary. Years of integrated battery operation based on an energy-optimised transmission procedure. Energy harvesting concepts are also planned.

Tech up with igus news  
Tech up

  • new sensors allow measurement of percentage bolt/hole connection abrasion levels
  • From E2 (2500 series) to E4/P4 to an inner height of up to 112mm
  • Designed especially for unsupported and roller chain applications
  • Transmission of sensor and dynamic data via a newly developed LoRa module to the icom. plus offline module
  • Energy-efficient communication concepts allow years of battery life
  • Optional "Energy Harvesting" 

Cost down with igus news  
Cost down

  • Clear measurement of product service life reduces costs by  avoiding a premature e-chain system® replacement
  • icom. plus integration allows the use of established concepts.
  • Output of service life information and warnings via HMI systems or the local network

Evidence from igus news  
Proof

 

  • Current test set-up in the world's largest laboratory for dynamic energy transmission systems.

Recycling with igus news  
Sustainability

  • Knowledge of the
    maximum service life allows emergency deployments and premature replacement to be avoided
  • Recycling of installed energy chains with the igus chainge programme free of charge

  • The EC. I. SU.02 measures the distance between the chain's bolts & chain holes
 
  • The status can be transmitted via LTE, LoRaWan, or Bluetooth
 
  • Energy chain condition can be viewed at any time
