Examples for use

Transmission monitoring

Getriebeüberwachung

Problem:

By faulty transmission in motors or generators, caused by abrasion or imbalances, grave damages can occur.

Solution:

The use of our USS5 sound sensor for acoustic monitoring of various types of gears in machinery and equipment. Incorrect noises can be detected and processed by the sound sensor (e.g. for error messages or machine shutdowns).

Lighting control in
underground car parks

Beleuchtungssteuerung in Tiefgaragen

Problem:

High electricity costs by a continuous operation of the lighting system, and high costs for the installation of motion detectors.

Solution:

The use of the sound sensor ALC1 guarantees a comprehensive ensurance of the car park lighting, even on locations that are difficult to view within a parking deck. Advantages compared with motion detectors:

  • reduced installation effort
  • cost-effective operation, because larger parking areas can be monitored
  • higher energy savings because only emergency lighting is required

Acoustic monitoring of
relays and contactors

icon relais

Problem:

In the production of electrical cabinets and their enclosure monitoring faulty relays trigger disturbances.

Solution:

The use of our USS5 sound sensor for acoustic control during tests of relays and contactors. The faulty relay generates noise with a certain frequency if the anchor is not activated by the correct noise. This can be detected by the sound sensor.

Acoustic monitoring of
connectors

icon steckverbindungen

Problem:

During the assembly of electrical cabinets or cable harnesses plug connections don´t snap properly.

Solution:

The use of our USS5 sound sensor for monitoring the production of various connectors. With the sound sensor the noise during the snap mechanism (plug-in contact into the connector) can be checked. In this way the correct operation of the  connector can be ensured.

Acoustic leakage testing

Akustische Dichtheitsprüfung

Problem:

Leakages in pipeline systems or containers.

Solution:

The use of our USS5 sound sensor for leakage testing of pipeline systems. Escaping gases out of containers and pipes cause a usable noise for the sound sensor, which can be used for monitoring and error detection.
Special feature: Due to its high degree of protection (IP67) the sound sensor can also be used under harsh industrial conditions.

Monitoring of filling systems

Problem:

The filling and closing of the bottles can cause breakage of glass.

Solution:

The use of our USS5 sound sensor for monitoring of filling systems. (Filling and closing of glasses and bottles) To ensure a continuous filling process the sound sensor is used for glass breakage monitoring. It recognizes, on the basis of an altered noise, the cracking of the facility of the glass container.

Quality control of
small components

slide branchen 5

Problem:

Various factors in the production process, like variations of material properties and process parameters or tool abrasion trigger quality differences in the series production of small parts. So at the end of the production process good and bad parts must be separated.

Solution:

The use of our USS4 sound sensor in the quality inspection of small parts to ensure a faultless quality of parts. The sound sensor is in advance trained on certain resonant frequencies of the good parts and the necessary control parameters for the sound check are set.

  • After stimulating the parts from the outside, the produced sounds are compared with the trained sound patterns. So the faulty parts can be separated directly from the faultless parts. 
  • max. 15 different sounds with 30 possible frequencies can be monitored simultaneously
  • modulation of the faulty parts can be done via two switching outputs

Monitoring of
agricultural machinery

slide branchen 6

Problem:

When obtaining harvest stones, which can then in processing destroy machinery and equipment, are also often transported (e.g. in sugar beet extraction)

Solution:

The use of our USS5 sound sensor for monitoring of harvested crop in sugar beet extraction.  By the sound sensor a continuous separation of sugar beets from carried stones is guaranteed for further utilization of the beets in biogas plants.
