Condition-Based Cylinder Monitor

Description

Bimba Manufacturing announces the introduction of IntelliSense®, a technology platform that will enable users to be proactive about maintenance and system optimization. A one-of-its-kind breakthrough in pneumatics, IntelliSense® combines sensors, cylinders, and software to deliver real-time performance data, enhancing productivity without sacrificing quality or efficiency. Bimba created IntelliSense® to deliver precise and accurate performance-related data with which users can make smarter decisions to ensure maximum uptime and component effectiveness.

The intelligence of IntelliSense® is embedded inside the Sensor Interface Module (SIM), a remote monitoring device connected to sensors attached to Bimba cylinders using pneumatic fittings. Users receive operational insights about cylinder condition, cycle time, pressure (to one hundredth of a psi), and temperatures (down to a hundredth of a degree). In addition, IntelliSense® delivers predictive intelligence for pneumatics in the form of up-to-date condition information that predicts when a cylinder will fail.

IntelliSense® can also identify when a component is achieving its desired performance specification. For example, users will be alerted if a cylinder that should be actuating in 1 second is taking 1.5 seconds. This is especially important in sequencing applications that depend on precise stroke rates.Ultimately, this machine-to-machine technology enables users from a wide range of industries to move from emergency repair to proactive maintenance, thus optimizing production as a whole.IntelliSense® is compatible with Bimba cylinders in pneumatic systems but the company plans to extend its capabilities to other Bimba products in the future.
