Compact monitoring device for data cables

Until now, there were only two alternatives for the maintenance of machine parts and plants: either parts were only replaced if they were already defective, or parts that were still functional were replaced at specific intervals as a precaution. However, thanks to Industry 4.0 and digitalization, there is a more efficient alternative to reactive maintenance: preventative maintenance. The idea behind this is to carry out maintenance measures depending on actual performance. This is also possible for connection systems, such as cables or connectors. Although cables from LAPP usually last for many years, in situations with highly dynamic, demanding movements with high speeds and strong torsion, it is advantageous and cost-effective to monitor the cables in order to avoid unexpected downtimes which impair productivity.

 

ETHERLINE® GUARD is the latest innovative solution from LAPP

This compact device monitors the performance of your highly loaded ethernet cable at risk of failure and displays its current status. Why perform preventive maintenance if it can also be planned in an optimal way? You too can take advantage of the benefits of preventative maintenance.

Why ETHERLINE® GUARD

  • •Increase system visibility and capability to plan downtimes for reduced maintenance costs.
  • •Plug and play solution for both new and existing networks that does not require a new data line or changes to the cable designs.
  • •Reliable IIoT communications thanks to the MQTT interface (for status/data evaluation, settings, WLAN configuration, updating, etc.).
  • •Compact design ideal for use in control cabinet.

 

Applications

  • •For use in Ethernet-based networks for automation technology.
  • •For monitoring the service life of a data cable at risk of failure (e.g. function-critical data cable in dynamic applications).
  • •Suitable for data cables according to transmission standard 100BASE-TX (with 100 Mbit/s) according to IEEE 802.3.
  • •Also suitable for EtherCAT, EtherNET/IP and 2-pair PROFINET applications.
  • •For use in control cabinets (protection class IP 20).

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
