ABB Ability™ Smart Sensor for hazardous areas

Condition monitoring solution for rotating machines in explosive atmospheres

The ABB Ability™ Smart Sensor for hazardous areas monitors the health and performance of rotating machines operating in explosive atmospheres. ATEX, IECEx and NEC 500 certified, it detects potential machine disturbances before they impact on reliability, productivity and safety.

ABB’s advanced algorithms analyze the data collected by the Smart Sensor and turn it into meaningful information users can act upon. This extends the lifetime of equipment, cuts maintenance costs and reduces or prevents unplanned downtime due to breakdowns.

Key features:

  • ATEX, IECEx and NEC 500 certified – compliant with strictest requirements for equipment operating in explosive atmospheres
  • Pinpoint detection accuracy – superior sensors enable detection of even slight anomalies in the equipment’s condition at a very early stage
  • Long battery life – the battery life of the high performance Smart Sensor up to three times longer than most competing designs
  • Quick installation and activation  for instant monitoring

  • For ABB or third-party equipment
