GAUS from OTT-JAKOB is a modular telemetry system designed to monitor tension, temperature and vibrations in rotating components. Monitoring these parameters can lead to high machining quality in the manufacturing process and long-term operational reliability for the spindle.
The system consists of an inductively coupled transponder system which transfers energy between stator and rotor electronics in combination with a wireless transfer system for high data transfer rates. Measurements can be taken continuously during the machining process. The measurements are sent straight to the machine control system.
