In this cleanroom highlight, the smart ultrasonic sensor technology is used to continuously monitor the current sag in the e-skin® flat system. The SKF.S e-skin® flat with support chain has a defined bend radius, allowing unsupported lengths in cleanrooms. As soon as a critical condition is detected in the energy supply system, predictive maintenance recommendations are issued.
The connected i.Cee module also allows numerous interfaces to comprehensive monitoring/IoT networks to make the cleanroom status information available to the user/system manager in real time. All information is aggregated in a modern dashboard, online or offline in the local network, depending on the customer's requirements.
i.Cee gives CFL a system service life estimate, taking into account condition monitoring data such as temperature, travel speed, and distance travelled and provides maintenance and inspection instructions.

In international automotive production, the global crane industry, or regional wastewater plants: i.Sense EC.P systems are successfully used wherever maintenance costs are saved and machine downtime prevented:
To the application overview
|ISO 14644-1||FED STD 209E||GMP (non-operational)||Max. particles (0.5 micron) m³||Max. particles (0.5 micron) f³||igus products that meet the standard|
|1||N/A||N/A||Energy chains, cables, corrugated tubes, pneumatic hoses|
|3||1||35||see above + linear guides|
|5||100||A & B||3,520||100||see above|
The data for GMP and FED STD 209E only serve as a rough comparison and do not take other factors such as bacterial contamination into account. Please contact us to find the right configuration for your project.
Energy chains in a cleanroom environment have to be especially abrasion-resistant as airborne particles above the strict limits specified in standards are released and can contaminate the cleanroom.
Pneumatic hoses and various cables with IPA ISO class 1 and 2 - also available ready for connection, suitable for Bosch Rexroth, Festo, Parker, Siemens and many other manufacturers.
In our product range of dry-operating linear guide systems, we offer four models that are certified for use in ISO class 6 to 3 cleanrooms.
The sliding elements of PRT-04-100 made of iglidur J minimise particle emissions, so they can be used in cleanroom applications.

Since the i.Sense Wonderbox is part of the smart plastics i.Sense condition monitoring system, all of its data can also be evaluated in the i.Cee control cabinet module. These data can then be used to digitally control the system's alarm and escalation management.
The i.Cee module can be integrated into predictive maintenance concepts in a number of ways, from preventive service management, which schedules regular maintenance depending on use, to location-independent fault management, which immediately reports any unforeseen change via various mobile channels. All information is collated in a modern dashboard, online or offline in the local network, depending on the customer's requirements.
