Intro

Give your customers instant access to motor oil levels & predictive maintenance. This technology allows real-time monitoring of oil quantity, temperature and quality in diesel engines. Real-time monitoring can prolong maintenance cycles and prevent operational failures. This can be complemented by software apps that predict required maintenance or oil replacement in real time. The technology is protected by a granted patent.

Claims

1. Device (10) for measuring the operating-state-dependent quantity of fluid, especially the amount of operating fluid and/or of lubricant in at least...
  1. Device (10) for measuring the operating-state-dependent quantity of fluid, especially the amount of operating fluid and/or of lubricant in at least one drive (1) or apparatus, wherein at least one sensor (3) for detecting the transverse and/or longitudinal inclination of the drive (1) or apparatus by a measuring/evaluation unit (2) is provided, characterized in that the measuring/evaluation unit (2) includes at least one container (7) for the fluid to detect the fluid level in the container (7), being coupled via a pipe (4, 4') to an inlet or outlet (6) for the fluid, in particular an oil drain screw, of the drive (1) or the apparatus.
  2. Device (10) according to claim 1, characterized in that the sensor (3) is formed as an acceleration or angular sensor (30).

  3. Device (10) according to one of claims 1 or 2, characterized in that the device (10) is permanently connected to the drive (1) or apparatus.

  4. Device (10) according to one of claims 1 or 2, characterized in that the device (10) is detachably connected to the drive (1) or apparatus.

  5. Device (10) according to one of the preceding claims, characterized in that the device (10) is coupled to a drive or apparatus control, in particular an ignition signal generator of the drive (1) or apparatus.

  6. Device (10) according to one of the preceding claims, characterized in that at least one sensor (3) is provided for detecting physical and/or chemical parameters of the fluid, in particular of pressure, temperature and/or the chemical composition.

  7. Device (10) according to one of the preceding claims, characterized in that 
    the determination of the amount of fluid and/or the detection of the transverse and/or longitudinal inclination is continuously or cyclically performed.

  8. Device (10) according to one of the preceding claims, characterized in that a memory unit (9) is provided for the detected values.

  9. Device (10) according to claim 8, characterized in that the memory unit (9) is wireless or via wire associated to an evaluation unit (2) for the
    detected values.

  10. Device (10) according to one of claims 8 or 9, characterized in that a continuous or subsequent display and/or evaluation of the detected values is provided.

  11. Device (10) according to one of the preceding claims, characterized in that a detector for the distance travelled and/or the operating time is provided.
