In the graph on the right there is a sudden drop in oil quality, the oil quality sensor measured this change immediately. From that point on the measurements are unstable compared to the data before. So the cause should be an external factor. After inspection of the equipment there was a broken seal of a hydraulic motor. This caused a mixture of hydraulic and lubrication oil in the gearbox.
