Video of the Week – How isense CF.P adds more intelligence to the igus® smart plastics portfolio09/05/2019

Tensile forces acting on the cables within an e-chain system can significantly reduce the service life. The CF.P system pick up any excess forces at the strain relief section and indicates the need for action in a timely manner. Sensor data is saved on an SD card for further analysis. However, data from these sensors becomes even more useful when linked to the icom module, a data collection module that imports the measured values of the isense product family into the system - a strong and smart tool for real-time analytics. The data can also be sent to the machine controller for further processing and, when the defined threshold is reached, an alert is raised or the machine shutdowns automatically.
