The ZeMA testbed was developed for condition monitoring, lifetime prognoses and end-of-line tests of electromechanical cylinders (EMCs) with a spindle drive. Long-term high load and speed driving tests are carried out at the testbed until an EMC failure occurs. Based on this, relevant sensors and characteristic signal patterns can be identified for condition monitoring as well as residual lifetime estimation of the EMCs.
