In the #NewNormal, the world is travelling and meeting in person much less. This is no problem for ABB’s Motors & Drives Service team, which have a wide range of remote service support and monitoring tools to help you install, commission, maintain and monitor motors and drives from far away – keeping people safe.
Your equipment may be located in hazardous environments, such as chemical, petrochemical or metals plants. Or it may be in remote places that can be difficult to access. Even in relatively safe settings, any time a maintenance person goes in to do on-site work in a plant, there are risks for injuries. Statistically, despite all the measures in place to protect them, the more frequently maintenance people do such on-site work, the higher the risk for accidents.
Even before the #NewNormal arrived and drastically reduced both travel and face-to-face meetings, ABB was offering digital services that allowed you to monitor and maintain your powertrains from a safe distance. Recently this range has been greatly expanded to cover even more remote service tasks that previously needed to be done via traditional on-site visits. Therefore, #NewNormal is giving you more reasons than ever to adopt these powerful remote services and tools.
An example comes from Switzerland, where the country’s leading power semiconductor plant is using ABB Smart Sensors to continuously monitor all the key motors on HVAC fans – to assure an ultra-clean and dust-free environment with precise temperature and humidity control. Most of the fans are housed in self-contained air handling units (AHUs) or cooling towers, making direct access impossible without shutting down the AHU. Being able to monitor the fans’ condition remotely helps avoid operational surprises, and also allows better scheduling of maintenance work.
We have dozens of other examples where ABB’s remote monitoring has been used successfully. The result is improved health and safety protection, reduced dangers to both your personnel and your company, and lower costs. That’s good news for everybody.
