Oil condition monitoring is becoming increasingly more important in the hydraulics industry to help monitor system performance and maintenance needs. Sensors play a key role by identifying and communicating any changes in oil condition.   

Pairing telematics and IoT (internet of things) with these sensors enables the data they collect to be analyzed and communicated so more immediate action can be taken to mitigate performance issues or replace any necessary components within a hydraulic system. 

In this webinar, you’ll learn how three companies – HydraForce, TanDelta Systems and Elevat – came together to bring oil condition monitoring to the fluid power industry to improve maintenance of hydraulic systems through continuous monitoring of oil conditions.  

Highlights of the webinar will include:  

  • learning how hydraulic, sensor and IoT technologies can work in tandem 
  • understanding the benefits of utilizing oil condition monitoring 
  • Gaining insight on the potential future of oil condition monitoring technology.
