Intelligent Cables Offer Predictive Maintenance


SmartCore cable for applications with moving cables, e.g., in robots or with handling axes, contain an additional, special sacrificial cable that fails at approximately 80% of the possible movement cycles. To evaluate, the sacrificial cable is bridged with the supply voltage and, if the core breaks, gives early warning of the impending end of the cable's service life.


Unplanned system downtime caused by cable breakage can thus be effectively prevented, and the sensor cable at risk of breaking can be replaced during the next scheduled maintenance cycle. The SmartCore Technology thereby contributes to increased system availability.
