Condition Monitoring using the WAGO-I/O SYSTEM
Often, machine components exhibiting wear are replaced, even though their useful service life limits have not come close to being reached. Employing conditioning monitoring, a component's service life can be fully exploited and, what is more, the time of replacement of the component can also be optimally planned. Such monitoring can be implemented at a very reasonable price with WAGO.
An elevated vibration level is often a sign that a component is nearing the end of its useful service life. Changes such as this can be detected using intelligent and well thought through sensor and evaluation technology. The advantages associated with this do, however frequently go hand in hand with the high investment costs for sensors and the peripheral systems required for implementation of a condition monitoring system, making this technology simply too expensive for smaller machines. WAGO offers reasonably priced solutions for this however, with their special measuring modules for the WAGO I/O System. Sensor data is acquired in the modules and made available to higher-order evaluation units via standard fieldbuses. Data evaluation is then conducted by means of standard visualization and process control systems available on the market.
The idea behind these solutions is the integration of the systems into existing machine concepts or in-service machines.

Modular System. The fieldbus-independent WAGO-I/O- SYSTEM 750 is the most compact and modular I/O system for decentralized automation.
