ABB Ability Smart Sensor

ABB AbilityTM Smart Sensor

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. 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 measures

  • Vibration
  • Temperature
  • Bearing condition & alignment issues
  • Output power
  • Operating hours
  • Number of starts

plus many other parameters that can be used to gain meaningful information on the condition and performance of the motor.

Motor health is indicated by the following traffic light system

Critical issue – failure likely soon. Take action as soon
as possible.

Operation can continue but the motor should be
watched closely and serviced at the next possible

Motor healthy – operation can continue.
