Condition monitoring and smart lubricant management in one solution  

The OPTIME Ecosystem: The sensor variants OPTIME 3, OPTIME 5, and OPTIME 5 Ex for wireless condition monitoring combined with the intelligent, interconnected lubricator OPTIME C1 for automated lubrication

Schaeffler combines its OPTIME Condition Monitoring system with the sensor variants OPTIME 3, OPTIME 5, and OPTIME 5 Ex for wireless condition monitoring and its intelligent, interconnected lubricator OPTIME C1 for automated lubrication to form one solution: the OPTIME Ecosystem. This creates a predictive maintenance solution, which effectively and sustainably minimises downtime and high maintenance costs in production facilities. 

The system supports plant operators by offering particularly convenient initial operation. Thanks to the plug-and-play function, hundreds of OPTIME elements can be installed and integrated within a very short time period. A subsequent expansion can be carried out quickly and reliably at any time. Low investment costs, savings due to reduced machine downtimes, and increased efficiency in scheduling maintenance procedures guarantee a rapid return on investment.    

A smart operating concept and an intuitive mobile app with a prize-winning user interface make it easy for users to gain an overview. This ensures a high level of acceptance among both beginners and experienced users. The OPTIME Ecosystem not only supports day-to-day maintenance operations with easy-to-understand warning messages and automatic analyses, but also helps with the data-based creation of maintenance plans.   

The OPTIME Ecosystem is simple, cost-effective and scalable. In addition, the predictive maintenance solution improves the sustainability of facilities by reducing material waste and energy consumption through reduced unplanned downtimes. Schaeffler will continue to develop and add new elements to the OPTIME Ecosystem based on the experience gained in successful customer projects in various sectors and applications. In this way, the OPTIME Ecosystem will continue to optimally support the smooth operation of machines and facilities in the future by providing all relevant information at a glance.
