Intelligent 3D energy chain condition monitoring

Now for robots, too!

i.Sense TR.B: Now avoid unplanned downtimes and high failure costs, even on multi-axis and

i.Sense TR.B: Condition monitoring on robots

Tech up

  • Real-time condition data acquisition for the robot's energy supply system
  • Intelligent breakage detection allows immediate maintenance
  • Longer protected cable package service life

Cost down

  • Direct TR.B sensor connection to the PLC customer control system without additional software costs
  • Avoid unplanned downtimes
  • Prevent total failure when individual chain links break


  • Ongoing test series in the industry's largest undefined for dynamic power transmission systems in industrial robots


  • Condition-based maintenance avoids unnecessary or premature chain replacement
  • Reusable after correct emergency system shutdown

When do I need a smart condition monitoring system like the i.Sense TR.B?

Condition monitoring for security areas
Condition monitoring for reducing costs
Condition monitoring instead of production downtime
Condition monitoring system for very small deviations
Condition monitoring for continuous monitoring
Condition monitoring for hard-to-reach areas

i.Sense in daily use on linear chains

  • The i.Sense EC.B (EC = e-chain, B = breakage detection) sensor is installed on the moving end of the e-chain (in the video with the smaller sensor box for short travels)
  • Special mounting brackets allow the EC.B. sensor to be installed on the moving end of the e-chain
  • A rope is stretched through the e-chain, which picks up any change in length and reports it to the new EC.B rope hoist sensor.
  • This detects chain breaks, shuts down the system and prevents further damage
