MoSS – A Smart Rolling Bearing

Condition Monitoring to prevent overheating

LCM developed a technology with NKE Bearings that enables the detection of overheating in rolling bearings. The Modular Sensor System (MOSS) can be retrofitted and allows real-time data such as temperature and speed of the bearings to be transferred wirelessly out of the bearing to be further analysed. Companies can thus detect faults earlier, perform predictive maintenance or optimise warranty monitoring of machines.
