According to the developers, the system is compatible with the CNC systems from Siemens, Bosch Rexroth, Heidenhain, Fanuc and Mitsubishi. It can reportedly detect high-speed impact crashes and low-speed high-force crashes from whichever direction, any overload of vibration, force and power, and the condition of machine components such as ball screws, linear guides or spindles. A machine emergency stop and NC stop occurs with a response time of less than 1 millisecond. The system can be variably configured, for instance with application-specific sensor selection and extension through multiplexing with the company's Mux-NG Multiplexer. Available options are the Pulse-NG three-axis acceleration sensor, the Strainlink 250-DA strain gauge in combination with the SLA-NG amplifier, and the PS200-NG with power sensors. The solution provides automatic machine condition diagnostics with trend diagram, an automatic message in case of wear and damage, and regular automated measurements to detect the wear of machine components at an early stage.
