Cost of Ownership
By assessing the cost of ownership as a whole, it is possible to eliminate process interruptions while saving money, and most importantly, gain some valuable peace of mind for you and your employer.
ABB Ability™ Smart Sensor picks up data on vibration, temperature, and other parameters and uses it to reduce motor downtime by up to 70 percent, extend the lifetime by as much as 30 percent, and lower energy use by up to 10 percent.
ABB Ability™ Smart Sensor that is attached to the frame of low voltage induction motors. No wiring is needed. Using onboard algorithms, based on ABB’s decades of motor expertise, the ABB Ability™ Smart Sensor relays information about the motor’s health, via a smartphone and over the internet, to a secure server. This solution can make huge numbers of motors into smart devices, enabling them to benefit from intelligent services.
ABB Ability™ Smart Sensor picks up the following data:
Bearings condition, Cooling condition, Rotor condition, Air gap condition, Energy consumption, Vibration levels, Temperature, Operating hours
