The technology transforms simple motors into intelligent machines that tell when they need servicing. Smart sensors attached directly to the motor supply information regarding operating and condition parameters such as vibration, temperature or overload, calculate power consumption, and transmits it all via wireless link. This can make it easy to use the company's Internet of Things, Services and People (IoTSP) concept for millions of motors. With the new solution, small and mid-sized companies can also benefit from the advantages offered by the IoTSP. Software analyzes the data and provides it to the plant operator in the form of graphics for maintenance planning, thereby enabling downtime reductions of up to 70 percent. At the same time, the lifetime of the motors can extended by up to 30 percent and energy consumption reduced by as much as 10 percent, so that the investment pays for itself in less than a year.
