iSense EC.PR

EC.PR protection for travels of up to
1000m – along their entire length

Avoid system-dependent imprecision for push/pull force monitoring systems on travels longer than 150 m

System-dependent imprecision due to static force limits for travels > 150m are a thing of the past.
Now there is the new EC. PR module. Here, force limits are dynamically adjusted with information  from PLC control systems, OPC-UA servers, or analogue (4-20 mA) path measurement systems (Profinet /EC. PP).  This reduces repair cost and effort; replacing a stacker reclaimer , for example, costs €30,000 or more.

Tech up with igus news

Tech up

  • Position-dependent reduction of maximum push/pull force limits at which the system is shut down – freely
    defined for each point along the travel.
  • Position information via additional modules from Siemens PLC, OPC-UA servers, or analogue or digital path measurement systems.

Cost down with igus news

Cost down

  • Avoid unplanned repair costs such as €40,000 or more for replacing a stacker reclaimer.
  • Integration into existing control concepts and switch cabinets
  • Standard strain gauge sensors and load cells can be used in igus® floating moving ends

Evidence from igus news


Recycling with igus news


  • Benefits such as reduction of CO² emissions by 32kg per eliminated repair deployment. 2
  • Less raw material required thanks to the option of partial repair instead of complete replacement.

explains the system in 60 seconds

  • Smart position determination with push/pull force reference
  • Condition monitoring for gliding applications
  • So-called beacons on the guide trough communicate the moving end's exact position
  • each position is assigned a defined push/pull force
  • if the assigned force is exceeded, the system switches off automatically, preventing a crash
