Abstract—This paper deals with an FPGA-based lubrication monitoring system that can supply vaporized oil at a fixed time to a specific area correctly, as well as monitor its state. The system includes a lubrication IP, a communication IP, and an oil mist sensor IP. The lubrication IP can set the pump discharge time and standby time of the system. It has a function for detecting the lubricant level and an interface so that it can transmit signals to an external controller. The oil mist sensor IP can receive the illuminance value of the vaporized lubrication oil from up to 8 sensors. The communication IP transmits measured data to the main computer’s graphical user interface (GUI). This sensor system can be used in high speed operating machines with real time processing.
