Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9963806A1] The present invention relates to a device and a method for monitoring the attachment of teat cups (9' - 9'''') to the teats (13' - 13'''') of an animal in a milking machine. The pressure in a common working fluid supply line (19) is monitored as each teat cup (9' - 9'''') is sequentially attached to its resp. teat (13' - 13'''') and a teat cup (9' - 9'''') is determined to be incorrectly attached if the measured pressure is different from the desired pressure in the working fluid supply line (19).
