ABB Ability™ Smart Sensor for motors

The ABB Ability™ Smart Sensor converts traditional motors into smart, wirelessly connected devices. It is attached to the frame of the motor; no wiring or machining is needed. Using algorithms, based on ABB’s decades of motor expertise, the ABB Ability™ Smart Sensor relays information about the motor's operation and health via a Bluetooth-gateway or smartphone to a secure server.

The ABB Ability™ Smart Sensor picks up data on vibration, temperature and other parameters that can be used to gain meaningful information on the condition and performance of the motor.
