How it works


The measured data – vibration and temperature – are combined into characteristic values at the sensor and transferred to the Schaeffler platform every 4h. Once per day, a complete data set (high-resolution time signals) is transferred to the platform. These can be analyzed by us experts with the OPTIME Viewer. The gateway receives the sent data from the sensors and transmits them to the cloud.


In the cloud, the data was stored in a structure adapted to your plant and an automatic analysis of its data was performed. The results are based on algorithms from Schaeffler AG’s rolling bearing knowledge and condition monitoring know-how, as well as machine learning. The results are available in the platform and as an APP on the cell phone.


Two different battery-powered types of sensors are available. OPTIME3 with a measuring range up to 3 kHz for drives running at speeds between 500 rpm and 3,000 rpm. For drives with a speed range of up to 8,ooo rpm, the OPTIME5 sensors are available with a frequency range of up to 5 kHz.


The sensors are screwed or glued to the aggregates to be measured. Various adapters are available for easy mounting and magnets are also available for mobile use. We supply suitable mounting material.

The gateway is installed in a housing with protection class IP66/IP67 and is therefore also suitable for outdoor installation.


The gateway and the sensors must be configured for your plant. You can specify your naming via the MONITORINGtoGO configurator. We activate a process area on the platform for you and create all your sensors with the desired designations. You can change the designations at any time after commissioning.


Take over the monitoring of your plants on your own responsibility and without additional costs and thus create transparency and security.


Book additional analysis needs with us as needed. Experts work with you to analyze the data and help you make decisions remotely.

Digital service delivers professional diagnostics based on expert algorithms and machine learning, available 24/7 via app - so you always make the right decision!

"monitoring as a service"

We provide you with everything you need to operate the smart monitoring solution. We supply sensors and gateways, accessories for mounting if required, configure your system and supplement this with necessary communication tools.

Billing takes place as annual service costs – transparent and reliably calculable.
