Leine Linde’s next generation of condition monitoring system for encoders is ADS Uptime. The Advanced Diagnostic System (ADS) retains the core features of its previous generation (ADS Online), and also introduces new features such as a wireless service check-up through Bluetooth and single cable support for diagnostic and control loop feedback information.
As with its previous generation, Leine Linde ADS Uptime continues to offer system monitoring features on parameters such as vibration and temperature. It also offers the ability to set various alarms and warnings, as well as record and access information over the encoder’s lifetime.
The new features of ADS Uptime such as wireless encoder service check-up, through Bluetooth connectivity, facilitate simplified maintenance routines in production lines and allow quick access to important factors affecting the encoder. Users can now perform service checkups on the go via the ADS Uptime app on their mobile device or tablet. With this type of effective maintenance check-up, maintenance technicians can detect unusual trends or recognize warning signs in an early stage and start practicing proactive maintenance. This greatly minimizes or eliminates unplanned downtimes.
ADS Uptime also allows users to store recorded information and access information over the encoder’s lifetime. Detailed data and parameters on things like scanning quality, time in motion, temperature, frequency and vibration are available for quick and easy access. The vibration parameter specifically has been enhanced to allow measurement in both the radial and axial directions providing further comprehensive analysis. Values are stored in the encoder and easily accessible in a variety of ways.
