Sensor for a smart cable | isense CF.P

This sensor has an "affinity" for cables

For cables that run in an energy chain, a particularly intensive "look" is required: 

  • The CF.P sensor measures the tensile forces on the cables
  • Permanently increased tensile forces can lead to cable damage and in the worst case, cable fire
  • The CF.P sensor identifies maintenance that has been carried out incorrectly on the cables
  • Data is stored on an SD card and can be read out for analyses
