Introducing AIQ Detect, the groundbreaking digital wear indicator designed specifically for semi-elastic couplings from Flender. AIQ Detect revolutionizes maintenance practices by providing real-time insights into the condition of these critical components, ensuring optimal performance and reliability.

Traditional wear detection methods for N-Eupex and Rupex have been cumbersome and often unreliable. With AIQ Detect, however, monitoring the wear and tear of these couplings is streamlined and accurate, thanks to advanced sensor technology.

The system continuously collects data on various parameters such as speed, torsional angle, and direction of rotation, analyzing them to assess the condition of the coupling. This data is then processed using intelligent algorithms to detect subtle signs of wear before they escalate into costly failures.

A simple visual inspection is initially sufficient to obtain information about the condition of the coupling; an LED light strip provides the corresponding color signals (traffic light colors). If viewing and recording the signals in a control room is preferred, the analogue output and the two digital outputs for the PLC control system can be used.

The coupling status can also be called up at any time in the smartphone app. A smartphone and a Bluetooth connection are all that is needed. This proactive approach not only saves time and money but also prevents hazardous situations in industrial environments.

With AIQ Detect, the era of guesswork and reactive maintenance is over. ACHEMA visitors are invited to Hall 8, Stand C51 to see the AIQ Detect in action. Embrace the future of predictive maintenance and upgrade for uptime!
