Mechanical power transmission
condition monitoring

New patented monitoring product range provides constant data about the condition of either gearboxes (AIQ CORE) or the elastomers within drive couplings (AIQ Detect) for maintenance personnel and production planners.

AIQ Core gearbox condition monitoring

AIQ gearbox monitoringAIQ Core gearbox condition monitoring unit.
With AIQ monitoring & maintenance comes a flexible solution package that perfectly fits your demands. Avoid laborious maintenance and service measures and find out about upcoming maintenance tasks at an early stage. The deeply integrated sensor system helps find the ideal maintenance interval. Additionally, the implemented gear unit intelligence will even help you avoid unplanned shutdowns.

Profit from:
» optimized service intervals based on oil monitoring.
» early failure detection and alarming based on vibration measurement.
» storage and visualization of longtime data within our AIQ web portal.
» automated monthly reporting (gear unit health status).
» PLC integration of measured speed, temperature, vibration and status.

Make use of AIQ Monitoring & Maintenance in different setups (see picture below), coming from a simple sensor use case, ending in cloud-hosted data with 24/7 online availability. Flexible, optionally upgradeable.

Mechanical power transmission couplings will eventually begin to show signs of wear due to their purpose and the nature of the job they perform.

The widely patented AIQ Detect, the digital, coupling sensor, monitors the wear condition of the elastomers and measures rotation speed and direction. Minimize Downtime. Save Effort. Monitor Functions. Mechanical power transmission coupling condition monitoring.

Minimize Downtime

Continuous and permanent monitoring of the coupling with AIQ Detect prevents unplanned failures and increases operational reliability. It also forms the basis for condition-based maintenance. Instead of a regular exchange of elastomers, the replacement can now be targeted and done only when needed. This is not only cost-effective but also sustainable.

Save Effort

With AIQ Detect, the condition of your flexible coupling is always assessed in a consistent way based on valid measurements. Therefore, no training or adaptation of personnel is required for monitoring. Once the wear limit of the elastomers is reached, the sensor reports the change in condition. There is still enough time to plan for maintenance. Yearly routine maintenance can mean several hours of time and equipment shutdown. With AIQ Detect, you can save on this effort in the long term.

Monitor Functions

The sensor not only checks the wear of the elastomers but also records each rotation of the coupling. Based on this data, AIQ Detect can determine and provide rotation speed and direction. This ensures that the drive train is operating correctly at all times.

By measuring the time difference between 2 points in a rotating system, the rotational speed and torsional angle can be determined.

Continuous Torsional Angle Monitoring As Enabler

» Detection of wear condition of the elastomers.
» Detection of operating faults (continuous very large torsional angle in the coupling).
