Product description

The Smart Cable Drum has been developed jointly by an expert in industrial radio communi-cation (Schildknecht), and an innovative cable manufacturer with a global presence (LAPP), as a promising Industrial Internet of Things and Industry 4.0 implementation. Apart from being what it has always been, a drum carrying cable, the Smart Cable Drum is equipped with sensors and a radio transmitter. Tailor-made algorithms process movement data coming from the sensors to determine the surplus cable length left on the drum. Via 2G-4G mobile radio technology operating worldwide this info is transmitted to a cloud portal.

The Smart Cable Drum allows for a number of promising business cases:
- Pay Per Use: A cable manufacturer can offer the Smart Cable Drum to its customers as consigned goods. The customer pays for the amount of cable used, determined precisely by the SCD measuring technology. Moreover, the cable drum itself alerts the manufacturer when additional delivery is needed. Also, with positioning included in the SCD technology, cable theft is more likely to be discovered and prevented.
