The generally overhauled i.Sense:modul Generation 2 offers you a multitude of new possibilities and application scenarios for smart condition monitoring. Specifically, with this new generation, four status sensors can be connected to just one switch cabinet module at the same time, which means considerable space and cost savings. And not only in the switch cabinet, but also in the chain itself, as only one cable needs to be run for every four sensors.
In addition to these directly noticeable improvements, the new module now also offers a variety of typical Industry 4.0 use cases such as remote resetting via WLAN or SMS or the SMS/e-mail alarm function in the event of movement anomalies of the energy supply system. The selection of the communication path for configuration and data download with the i.Sense:modul II is exceptionally versatile. In addition to the stationary connections via USB or LAN cable, this can also be done completely over-the-air via WLAN or Bluetooth with any conventional mobile device.

Condition monitoring is the fastest, simplest way to combine many igus® products to form a self-monitoring smart plastics product. Sensors are mounted to measure values (such as temperature, forces and sound waves/vibrations) within pre-defined limits. Values outside the limits result in an alert or at least a notification. This information provides the basis for taking subsequent steps, such as maintenance or shutting down the system. As desired, values outside defined limits can directly trigger a system shut-down in order to prevent damage that is expensive to repair.
At igus®, we use the term "i.Sense" to refer to condition monitoring.
"If movement of the chain is excessively hindered by dust or dirt, the push/pull monitoring shuts down the system before any damage can occur." "
