ABB debuts smart sensing solution for low voltage motors
April 25, 2016 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Apr. 25, 2016 – ABB says its new smart sensing solution from can reduce downtimes of low voltage motors by up to 70 per cent and extend their lifetime by up to 30 per cent.
The company says the technology transforms “simple motors into intelligent machines” that tell users when they need servicing. The sensors attach directly to the motor supply information through wireless transmission. The smart sensor provides information on operating and condition parameters such as vibration, temperature or overload and calculates power consumption. The data is analyzed by a software program and provided to the plant operator in the form of graphics for maintenance planning.
