  • Publication number: 20060213725
    Abstract: A lubricant distributor in which the path of movement of a metering piston may be continuously determined by means of an entry body-coil assembly, whereby the entry body moves relative to the coil with movement of the metering piston. The current position of the metering piston may preferably be worked out in a computing unit. Means for indicating the current position of the metering piston can also be provided. With the aid of the invention, constant monitoring of the operation of a lubricant distributor and thus the detection of operational faults are possible in a continuous manner which may be centrally analysed. The conveyed volume, which is dispensed precisely at each lubrication or friction point, may be determined on each working stroke so that, in particular, insufficient lubrication and faulty lubrication may be avoided.
