The RHEINTACHO “Black box” Or: Measuring infinite light

In the final assembly of stroboscopes at RHEINTACHO, there is probably a measuring unit which is unique worldwide. With this system, the light intensity of RHEINTACHO stroboscopes is measured and shown graphically.

From the outside, it looks like an inconspicuous, built-to-purpose square “box”. However, it is full of complicated and intelligent technology. We are dealing with the measurement of light intensity of extremely short flashes of light. These light flashes can be as short as 5µs. In this short time, the special xenon light units reach a brightness of mega-lux level.

Reliability Programme Maximizes Gearbox Life

The number one failure cause in any mechanical application is contamination. Industrial plants have a big investment in their equipment and the lubricants protecting that equipment, so it makes sense to protect these assets.

A good lubrication reliability programme is one that prevents contamination, oil foaming, overheating and emulsification – all caused by use of the wrong oil leading to lubricant failure and mechanical wear.   

The right robot for the job
