Mechatronic drive systems that can collect and communicate information independently are fundamental to the IIoT. WITTENSTEIN alpha is now the first manufacturer of components to offer smart gearboxes as standard – gearboxes with cynapse®. The integrated sensor module enables Industry 4.0 connectivity.
Gearboxes with cynapse® are identical to the existing models in terms of design, size and contour. Drive solutions which have already been designed hence need no further modification. It is the sensor module integrated in the smart gearbox that makes the difference.
The digital identification plate contains all relevant data needed for clear identification of your components.
Data is collected and stored throughout your component’s lifecycle:
Temperature, vibration, mounting position and acceleration
Sensor values are easy to monitor based on predefined or customized thresholds.
