Sensor technology for Gear Boxes

Information about this subject area

Gearboxes are complex systems comprising various components such as gears, shafts or bearings. Monitoring a gearbox can be challenging considering the many potential error and noise sources. 

iNDTact’s sensor system is capable of monitoring gearboxes independently of the operating mode or changing variables like pressure, load or rotational speed. The sensor system can be applied to any kind of gearbox - even retrofitted - and monitoring can be started in just a few minutes.

Possible errors which can be monitored are:

  • Gear pitting
  • Component wear
  • Bearing damage
  • Insufficient lubrication
