  • Calculate the predicted remaining service life with physical technical equations.

Life performance indicator

  • Value for the calculated service life of a geared motor: 0 – 100%.
  • > 90%: recommendation for exchange.
  • Output in the software of the drive controllers or via a higher-level controller.


Manage your system sustainably.

  • Analyze load situations in the application.
  • Detect anomalies, optimize operating states.
  • Increase competitiveness.
Virtual Lifetime - Sustainable Business.

Load matrix

  • Continuous documentation of the cumulative load condition of the drive system over the entire operating time.
  • Database for recording real-world load situations.
  • Export Virtual Lifetime data as a JSON or CSV file.
  • Maximum transparency and unrestricted access to the measurement data of the drive system.

The best long-term plan.

“With the STOBER “Virtual Lifetime,” the new feature for Predictive Maintenance, we offer our customers three powerful functions at once for monitoring the drive train. These include Condition Monitoring, Predictive Maintenance, and the ability to optimize drives in real-world applications. The license-free approach is particularly noteworthy here, which functions without external sensors and independently of the controller. It’s simply smart – which is what you expect of products from our company!”
