The isense family of igus® products consists of various intellgent sensors and monitoring modules. They measure wear during the operation and alarm the user early enough to plan a repair or an exchange. The igus® Communication Module (icom) makes the seamless integration into your IT infrastructure possible. This allows scenarios like the continuous monitoring or automatic triggering of in-house maintenance jobs. An optional connection with the igus® data center widens the options: individual lifetime calculation and faster operational processes like automatic ordering of external maintenance crews or ordering of spare parts. Thanks to smart plastics your equipment runs continuously and your maintenance costs go down. Improved safety is an additional benefit.

Reduction of energy consumption
e-chains®, cables, linear bearings become smartWith its isense (intelligent sensor in or on the product) and iCom (Communication Module) innovations, igus® is introducing three intelligent products for first-time use in industry.
The degree of wear of the intelligent energy chain is continuously monitored by means of an integrated sensor chip. If the amount of abrasion is such that the chain is likely to be damaged, the chip sounds the alarm. Repair or replacement can be planned in good time and downtimes are thus minimised.
Additional measuring wires or their degree of conductivity are used to continuously check whether a cable failure is imminent. If the conductivity falls below a defined threshold, a signal is sent immediately and the cable can then be replaced in the framework of scheduled maintenance work without any extra effort or downtime.
