A measurement and data transmission unit is built into the carrier plate of the drylin carriage to implement a wide range of Industry 4.0 use cases. This communicates with the intelligent i.Cee:plus module via the industry-standard LoRa radio. In this way, any diverse integration into customer networks or further IoT concepts can take place. Of course, this can also be implemented locally using a standard CAT5 patch cable.
The 24V DC power supply of the integrated measuring unit is ensured by a LiPo battery, which can be easily charged via USB interface. This ensures round-the-clock condition monitoring of the profile guide. By connecting to the i.Cee:plus module, further features such as predicted maintenance intervals, live dashboards (online and offline) or immediate alarm messages via e-mail or SMS can be implemented.

Smart networking of individual components creates the solid foundation for predictive maintenance concepts. At igus®, we call our predictive maintenance system "i.Cee.
The central element of this system is the i.Cee software. Sensors on the energy chain, the plain bearing bush, or a linear carriage, transform products deliverable from stock into smart products. This upgrade creates the capability of determining your igus® product's maximum service life, and the i.Cee system also tells you the perfect time for servicing it. Algorithms adapt the service life and the service time to the equipment's use. The software we provide and a few sensors transform standard products available from stock into smart energy supply or bearing technology in no time.
Due to the integration of smart plastics sensors into the energy supply, the customer's condition monitoring system is supplied with data.
