DB-Netz AG: How optiMEAS improves availability The maintenance vehicles for overhead lines (IFO) of DB Netz AG are indispensable - for the ongoing maintenance of the approximately 20,000 kilometres of electrified network and as a "fire brigade" in emergency situations. The solution from optiMEAS, consisting of IoT hardware and software as well as
ImpSpin | Development of a sensory spindle for machine tools based on rolling bearing impedance measurements In the funded project "ImpSpin", a continuous, digital value chain for machine tools is being investigated and developed, which is based on the digitisation of the motor spindle. For this purpose, a motor spindle is equipped with sensors for measuring the electrical impedance of the spindle bearings.
Using IoT to combat thick air in inner cities. In many cities, the air poses a high health risk because it contains too much particulate matter and nitrogen oxides. The smart Filter Cubes from MANN+HUMMEL succeed in reducing the pollutant load of the outside air. An IoT device from optiMEAS controls the demand-based,
Optimise rail transport maintenance and service through IoT. The maintenance of rail vehicles is very time-consuming. Especially the overhaul of the bogies requires a longer downtime and causes high costs for the operators of the vehicles. The right sensor technology, combined with a smart edge device, enables the optimisation of maintenance intervals
Testing railway components in the on-board network. Functional tests and performance measurements under real conditions are indispensable for the development and testing of traction unit components. In the on-board network, a few but sometimes large consumers that are frequently switched on and off cause voltage peaks, high currents and large reactive power components. In addition, there are micro-interruptions of the power supply at the current collector
Recognizing today what will not work tomorrow. The increasing digitalization of industrial processes requires an adjustment on management level in the form of marketable products and services.
Condition monitoring of concrete pumps. Zoomlion CIFA Deutschland GmbH in Urbach is a manufacturer of concrete machines such as mixers, mixing plants, concrete pumps or tunnel spraying machines. CIFA concrete pumps stand out from the competition thanks to a completely flexible support system and their Carbotech series (carbon mast and kinematic elements). Headquarters of the
The northernmost airport in the EU. Temperatures of up to -30 degrees Celsius can be expected at Ivalo Airport in Finland in winter. Finnair departs daily from here to Helsinki. The winter months are high season in Ivalo. Winter sports enthusiasts from all over the world then arrive
Smart on the ring. While Rock am Ring is all about music, "smart am Ring" is about the digital innovation of a connectivity box - the optiMEAS smartMINI + dashboard. In a sleek Porsche, the smartMINI speeds around the circuit and enables the driver to control the car via
Safe monitoring of industrial valves. Wherever they are used, things are usually pretty rough: industrial valves made by Stahl-Armaturen PERSTA GmbH, Warstein, have been working in the chemical and petrochemical industries, in waste incineration plants, and in conventional and nuclear power plants for 70 years now. Breakdowns often lead to expensive downtimes of entire
