The BEAROMOS®2020  is an innovative monitoring system for oillubricated slide bearings

The sensor is a novel monitoring system for oil-lubricated sliding bearings that detects the transition from sliding to mixed friction.

The BEARing MOnitoring System, available since September 2019, convinces above all with these features:

  • Early recognition of the transition from sliding to mixed friction
  • Use of the physical principle of the “Seebeck effect” (voltage generation by “Metal on Metal”)
  • Easy to install sensor

BEAROMOS®2020 has been developed in cooperation with RWTH Aachen University and was financially supported by the ZIM-programme (“Central Innovation Programme for small and medium-sized enterprises”).




• Online monitoring of auxiliary/propulsion engine’s main bearings
• Reliable detection of bearing anomalies
• Minimizing engine maintenance costs
• Due to different physical principal much quicker reaction time than other systems
• Easy installation, also as retrofit



• The supplied software uses the sensor signal to display the status of the monitored bearings

• Together with the speed detected by the sensor, it is possible to make a statement about the status of how the
bearing is running: hydrodynamic friction or mixed friction
• Bearing status is displayed as a bar graph (green<->yellow)
•Long-term trends can be shown
•Records the last transition from hydrodynamic friction to mixed friction with date, time, duration and revolution speed

• Continuously monitors communication between software and sensor via LED indicator.
• Screenshots can be taken of current display
• Possible to export the current data content from the graph to a CSV file
• The transition from hydrodynamic friction to mixed friction and vice versa can also be displayed as an average over time
• There is a visual status indicator, if threshold value is exceeded
