First Level Predictive Maintenance 4.0
Oil Condition Monitoring System
Build a smart system with HYDAC Industry 4.0 smart sensors
At HYDAC, all our 4.0 ready hydraulic systems are fitted with our latest sensor technology that is in-line with Industry 4.0 to create smart machines that are able to self-monitor, self-learn and self-correct.
To build a smart system using HYDAC’s first level package “Industry 4.0 for Oil Condition Monitoring”, you will require the following smart sensors:
- A Contamination Sensor (CS1000) for counting the number of particles in the oil and displaying the results according to the ISO class,
- HYDAC Lab (HLB) which continuously monitors the condition of the oil by measuring the temperature, water saturation, conductivity and change in dielectric constant. This value is used to indicate changes in viscosity, mix or dilution and it may also be an indication of oil deterioration.
To log the data collected by the sensors, we use the HYDAC Condition Sensor Interface (CSI-C11). The CSI module has 2 input channels for the HYDAC smart sensors.
HYDAC smart sensors have an HSI interface built in, this means “no configuration” is necessary! The CSI instantly recognises the sensors and configures the display appropriately, a real plug and play feature.
The CSI has also an output port for data transmission via a LAN cable and it has an antenna that allows for wireless transmission via W-LAN. With the CSI you can access the data recorded on the system wirelessly using the HYDAC FluMoS mobile app.
The FluMoS Mobile app is available as a free download from Google Play Store.
Installing our Condition Monitoring System
To adapt and install the Condition Monitoring Package to any of your systems is very easy. The steps are simple and are as follows:
- Install the Contamination Sensor and HYDAC Lab in the pressure line. Note that 12 to 24 V power supply is needed
- Connect the CSI and the Contamination Sensor, then with the HYDAC Lab and, after that, to a power conditioned outlet
- Plug the network cable if you would like to access the data on your PC or network direct
- Download and open the FluMoS app into your Android mobile device (phone or tablet) to access the data
In the FluMoS app, press the Wi-Fi button to automatically connect your mobile device with HYDAC CSI. Once connected you will have access to all the data recorded on your system.
On your mobile screen you will be able to see the following measurement outputs:
- Electrical Conductivity
- Water Saturation and
- Contamination Level
