Sensing the Future: Transforming Industries through Advanced Condition Monitoring

What is a Condition Monitoring System?

A condition monitoring system enables automatic, wireless monitoring of non-critical electric motors and rotating equipment. It can help detect machine vibration and temperature anomalies that could lead to equipment failure and production downtime. Information provided by the system can be accessed remotely by users. With wireless functionality, the system can easily be installed on existing infrastructures without requiring any extra shutdowns. Additionally, the engineering, planning, materials and installation costs of a wireless sensor deployment are significantly less than traditional wired solutions (typically up to 50% cost savings).

The ABB Ability™ Smart Sensor converts traditional motors, pumps and mounted bearings into smart, wirelessly connected devices. It measures critical parameters such as triaxial vibrations, surface temperature, magnetic field and ultrasonic acoustics from the surface of the equipment which can be used to gain meaningful information on the condition, maintenance need and performance of the machine, enabling users to identify inefficiencies within their system and to reduce risks related to operation and maintenance. The ABB Smart Sensor has an unparalleled battery life of 15 years with a standard measurement interval of one hour. This means that the sensor no longer has to be changed on site, but potentially only when an rotating asset is in the workshop for repair.

We address your daily challenges and main risks

Unplanned downtime
Demographic change
High costs for major repairs and manual on-site inspections
  • Cost of production loss
  • Detect early faults in the machine setup
  • Market pressure drives the need for higher production availability, which drives the need for maximum asset availability
  • Lack of expert knowledge on site
  • Centralization of knowledge
  • Lack of experience
  • Result of maintenance experts retiring
  • Aging assets and slimmer capital budget drive producers to find new ways to extend the life of existing assets
  • Save CAPEX by using a wireless condition monitoring system, which saves about 50% costs compared to a traditional wired condition monitoring system
ABB Ability™ AssetInsight automatically gathers, analyses and presents rotating machine health data for effective asset management of fleets for transitioning to condition-based or predictive maintenance.

ABB Ability™ AssetInsight in connection with the Wireless ABB Smart Sensors is the right solution for early detection of faults at the thousands of standard size rotating assets and to perform cost effective, online condition monitoring, the vibration expert is supported with easy to use dashboards and automated Anomaly detection and predictive algorithms as well as with automated report and notification functionality.

With ABB Ability™ AssetInsight, visualize the health of your rotating assets. A user-friendly dashboard allows users to see a full overview of the health status across a site or fleet, enabling users to dig into the details for any piece of equipment, perform a detailed analysis, and take action before it is too late.

Take a transformative step in your operations and maintenance team. With ABB Ability™ AssetInsight supporting your maintenance strategy, position your team for advanced condition-based and reliability centered maintenance. Use your equipment data to optimally plan maintenance with lower maintenance costs, fewer safety incidents and fewer production losses.

Your benefits with ABB

Time saving

Save time by eliminating the need for manual measurements and reducing the number of operator rounds with the wireless ABB Ability Smart Sensor. In addition, manual reporting can be reduced through automation.

Inventory saving

The transformation from reactive or preventive maintenance to condition monitoring and then predictive monitoring reduces the spare parts inventory

More transparency

Full fleet insight into the overall health of your assets for greater transparency is enabled by the fleet-wide dashboards and periodically generated asset fleet reports.

Improve uptime & asset life

Identifying problems with the help of KPIs and e-mail notifications before they become major issues improves uptime and asset life.
