Smart sensor for low voltage motors

27 June 2017

The ABB Ability Smart Sensor for motors is a pocket-sized device that is retrofitted to the frame of LV induction motors. Installation of the sensor module is made easy as no additional wiring is required. The sensors are available not only for motors made by ABB but also for non-ABB motors.

Smart Sensor picks up data on vibration, temperature and other parameters. On-board algorithms, based on ABB’s decades of motor expertise, interpret these parameters and relay information about the motor’s health, via a smartphone and over the internet, to a secure, cloud-based server.

By providing meaningful information on motor condition and performance, the service will enable users to plan their maintenance according to actual needs rather than on the basis of time intervals or operating hours alone. This can reduce downtime by up to 70%, extend motor lifetime by as much as 30 percent and cut energy consumption by up to 10%.
