igus i.Sense EC.B cable sensor performs condition monitoring for e-chains over 35 meters.
Igus introduced its i.Sense EC.B, a smart condition monitoring system for breakage detection on e-chain cable carriers over 35 meters. In the case of a break, the i.Sense EC.B system triggers a message and the evaluation module sends a signal to the system’s control unit. The measuring range extension from 80 to 999 millimeters eliminates the need for a second sensor. In the event of breakage detection, the sensor immediately Additionally, two sensors can also be connected to the new i.Sense modul II evaluation module for counter-rotating systems as an example. When connected to the digital I/O ports of the control unit, the system can trigger an immediate stop signal. The new draw-wire sensor is compatible with all EC.B systems and i.Sense modules. The sensor can also be integrated into other IIoT concepts.
