Next generation of intelligent cable
With the experience of customers in the automotive and machine tool industries, Igus has further advanced its intelligent cable with the new CF.Q module, making maintenance easier and more efficient, thereby saving money.
With the CF.Q sensor, the electrical properties can be tested in real-time and continuously compared with existing empirical values of a given chainflex cable. Damage by bending or extreme loads can be reliably detected, and guide values for the cables can be defined in advance. This is made possible by an industry 4.0 capable application called isense-online. If the CF.Q module is installed, you will be informed to initiate maintenance when fluctuations are detected. This is done before the damage occurs and the production or plant shutdowns become a risk.
For maintenance teams and production managers, intelligent igus cables are bringing in a paradigm shift in maintenance and servicing through accurate prediction. Thanks to Industry 4.0 and the active integration of smart technologies, the maintenance of the future becomes predictable and thus more efficient.
