Sensor for position-sensitive push/pull force measurement
Positioning system integrated into e-chain
Supplies information on position-dependent push/pull forces
Position information from the application can be used for other purposes
Sensor for movement on e-chains
Detects values such as acceleration, speed, temperature and cycles
Supplies data for calculation of the minimum fault-free operating time
Non-contact measurement of e-chain wear
Integrated in the chain link, the component subjected to the greatest mechanical stress
Measures the wear of pin/bore connection in per cent, without contact occurring
Sends a signal if the specified limit is reached
Finally also for multi-axis and industrial robots ...
... i.Sense TR.B for intelligent breakage monitoring
Robots have long been indispensable in many areas of industrial manufacturing – bb welding, painting, soldering, and palletising: industrial robots are becoming dynamic. A flexible 3D energy chain such as the triflex® R from igus® makes it possible to guide robot cables safely. To detect potential chain breaks due to extreme loads in good time and avoid unplanned machine breakdowns, igus has developed i.Sense TR.B, the world's first breakage monitoring system for 3D energy chains.
Design intelligent energy chain systems faster. CAD models for all smart components.
Our intelligent e-chain systems are already reliably in use in hundreds of thousands of applications worldwide - from beverage machines and CNC machines to steel mills. Unsupported lengths can be bridged without problems and long travels are conceivable for the most varied of industries.
All smart plastics test setups can be found here by rotating the mouse across the screen.
Smart solutions with chainflex® cables
Condition monitoring (i.Sense) with chainflex® cables requires no additional module. The system can be integrated and networked without additional software. In these cases, cables have three options for condition monitoring.
Cable push/pull force measurement (CF.P)
Cable electrical property measurement (CF.Q)
Transmission quality measurement (CF.D)
Sensors for chainflex® cables
measures pull forces acting on cables
If there is a fault, the contact closes, and a notification is sent to the machine
