The knowledge about the function and operation of magnetic actuators is the crucial basis for increasing the safety and reliability of machines and systems. A distinction must be made between intermittent and integrated function and condition monitoring.
The intermittent test describes the analysis of the actuator at fixed intervals, for example by a service technician during regular maintenance. In the integrated function and condition monitoring, each individual switching operation of the actuator is analyzed.
MagHyst® mobile is a portable device for intermittent testing. Using the smartphone app, actuators can be measured on-site when installed, and a good-bad decision can be made immediately based on the integrated evaluation.
The solution for integrated function and condition monitoring is MagHyst® embedded. Depending on the available control, the system can be implemented on existing boards or integrated as a separate hardware. Measurements can be active as well as passive, depending on the application.
MagHyst® embedded offers the possibility of producing intelligent actuators (smart actuator) as well as the substitution of additional sensors, such as limit switches, force-, displacement- or hall sensors.
