The TLC has also integrated Lubrication Point Monitoring capabilities. Combined with lubricant flow meters, it can monitor and guarantee that the correct amount of lubricant has reached the lubrication point each and every time.
Principal Of Monitoring Operation
An oval gear flow meter is mounted at or near the lubrication point inlet. (installation of an appropriate filter is recommended after the pump’s outlet, to keep contaminants out)
The oval gear mechanism incorporates two magnets into one of the nylon oval gears. The body incorporates a read switch which senses the magnet passing. Lubricant entering the flow meter causes the gears to rotate. Each pulse equates to a specific volume of lubricant. (depends on the flow meter model)
Feedback from the flow meter is evaluated by the TLC system and warnings are given locally and remotely, when a problem occurs.

color coded progress bars
data trend presentation
Monitoring of up to 16 lubrication points (expandable to 100+ )
Points can be allocated in two independent groups without restrictions (8-8, 4-12 etc. different lubrication systems/zones)
Different target value for every group and lubrication point (each point may have different lubrication requirements)
Local indication and remote error signal when any point misses its target value.
Interface easy to setup
Colored touch screen
Multiple security levels to avoid unauthorized access
