ABB Ability™ Condition Monitoring for motors, pumps and general machinery
The ABB Ability™ Smart Sensor monitors the health and performance of powertrain assets, such as motors, pumps and general machinery. It detects potential machine disturbances before they impact on reliability, productivity and safety. This extends the lifetime of equipment, cuts maintenance costs and reduces or prevents unplanned downtime. The user can access the information via a smart phone or dedicated web portal.

Features
ABB Ability™ Smart Sensor
Fit it easily to the surface of a motor, pump or general machinery, without wiring or machining, and collect operational data and health information of your equipment. Maintenance and operation can be optimized in a way that was not possible before. The benefits can be significant, payback time expected to be less than one year in most cases.
Like a fitness wristband for electric motors, pumps and general machinery
In the standard configuration the sensor takes a measurement every hour, and has a memory for a month. Within that month the data must be collected, either automatically via a gateway or manually with a smart phone. The data is analyzed by the powerful algorithms of ABB, the world's leading manufacturer of electric motors.
Highly configurable
Users can change the interval between measurements, extend the battery life with the power saving mode, add photos and event descriptions, adjust settings for alarm and alert, calibrate with other measurements, and many other features. The app and portal can be configured to different languages and to imperial or metric units. The user can also select alerts and communication he/she wants to receive.
Secure and safe
The user management allows control of who has access to which data. The system complies with ABB's strict standard on cyber security.
