Leuze Electronic presents a concrete innovation towards powering Industry 4.0 applications with its new SmartCable.
The SmartCable enables an innovative predictive maintenance measure specifically for applications including:
The cable contains an additional, special sacrificial wire that fails at approximately 80% of the cable’s lifecycle.
The sacrificial wire is bridged with the supply voltage, and when the core breaks it gives an early warning of the impending end of the cable’s service life. Not only does this help to prevent unplanned downtime, but it increases system availability by predicting downtime and allowing for scheduled maintenance.
