This is how iglidur i.Sense plain bearings work

The i.Sense system consists of two different parts:
1. Technology integrated in the bearing detects wear in advance and gives you a signal in good time when the wear limit is reached.
2. A read-out unit for measuring the plain bearing data.
There are different possibilities for this purpose: either you can manually read out i.Sense plain bearings, or install a control unit with a red/green display on the machine, which provides information about the condition of the plain bearings. Another possibility is the connection to This allows for transmitting the plain bearing data to a cloud system or a local network.
