Leine Linde Systems introduces the new ADSR, the first slip ring with a diagnostic system for analysing condition and predicting remaining service life.
The diagnostic system is fully integrated into a customised slip ring and the system continuously analyses the condition of the slip ring. The ADSR's diagnostic system continuously monitors the contact systems and other key functions of the slip ring, enabling condition-based maintenance. The information and warning messages sent via the diagnostic system are displayed by an LED on the slip ring and made available using network interfaces and can be opened in a browser-based web monitor. The centrepiece of the ADSR is the integrated sensors for measuring vibrations, the level of voltage and current, number of revolutions, internal and external humidity, and temperature. This systematic monitoring and analysis enables the expected remaining service life of the slip ring to be displayed, both in terms of time and revolutions.
