Preventive Maintenance For Industrial Doors
By combining the timing of the event-triggered pulses with ultra-low power counting electronics, a Wiegand-powered counting safety system can be realized. Wiegand pulses are used as counter indicating the number of revolutions involved in the opening and closing of industrial doors/ gates. This helps in monitoring the condition of the door’s components and in determining when they should be exchanged to avoid failure if their priorly known life span has been exceeded. This management of maintenance cycles can even occur in situations where external power supply is difficult or disadvantages, which means that Wiegand sensors can be used to create energy autonomous safety systems for industrial doors.
