Low voltage electric motors power a wide variety of applications, in almost every aspect of industrial life. From Heating and Ventilation systems, pumps, fans, grinders, compressors, conveyors, mixers, the application list is almost endless. We know the importance of maintaining these workhorses, but what if you knew the condition of each motor on your site, handy? What if the key metrics of your electric motors were communicated directly to your phone or device on a regular basis? Now we have your attention! This is exactly what the ABB Smart Sensor does. In July 2017 ABB launched their new ABB AbilityTM Smart Sensor. This clever piece of technology from ABB turns traditional motors into smart, wirelessly connected devices.

There is no wiring or machining needed. Using algorithms, the ABB Ability™ Smart Sensor relays information about the motor’s operation and health via Bluetooth or smartphone to a secure server. The device sends data on: vibration, temperature and other key parameters that can be used to gain meaningful information on the condition and performance of the motor. Enabling users to identify inefficiencies within the system and to reduce risks related to operation and maintenance. Maintenance can now be planned according to real time needs rather than based on generic service schedules. This extends equipment lifetime; cuts maintenance costs and reduces or prevents unplanned downtime due to breakdowns.

ABB Ability™ Smart Sensor for motors can help you to:

  • Identify inefficiencies within the system
  • Uncover potential for energy savings
  • Reduce risks related to operation and maintenance
  • Prevent unexpected breakdowns
  • Extend equipment lifetime
