Weg introduces Motor Scan monitoring technology

Weg introduces Motor Scan monitoring technology

Weg unveiled a new motor monitoring technology at the Drives & Controls show, in the form of Motor Scan system, which uses Industry 4.0’s digital technology, including Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Big Data Analytics to give clients a competitive edge in this dynamic and challenging business environment. Available for frame sizes from 100 to 450, Weg’s sensor measures the vibration and temperature of motors to detect anomalies.

Easily retrofitted via a mounting clamp, the sensor tracks vibration, surface temperature as well as running hours, and will provide data on speed, start/stop time, load and efficiency via Bluetooth. For ease of use the captured data is stored in the cloud and the user can use an App, available for both iOS and Android devices, on their smartphone or tablet to access it. Users can also access the data on laptops and desktops via a dedicated web portal. Powerful analytics help to process the data and predict pending failures or hidden problems based on frequency spectrum analysis. Warning levels are pre-set based on acceptable baselines of temperature/vibration and software is able to plot performance curves with the captured data.

Essentially, Weg Motor Scan takes the monotony out of manually collecting and monitoring data, removes the guesswork of preventive maintenance and eliminates the inefficiency of reactive maintenance. Also, by training maintenance professionals to take on the specialised requirements of predictive maintenance, it provides the opportunity for companies to upskill staff and expand their capability. “The Weg Motor Scan can predict and avert a crisis before it happens. It is just like having a crystal ball that lets you know what is going to happen in the future,” said Andrew Glover, European low voltage motors product manager. “We find that fixing a problem before it happens is the most cost-effective form of maintenance and this provides direct benefits to our clients. Clients can reduce cost, improve profitability and use their resources more efficiently.

“The Weg Motor Scan leverages IIoT and analytics to connect sensors and other devices to collect and analyse real-time data to provide transparency for taking immediate pre-emptive actions. Our new solution helps clients to stay competitive in this ever-evolving and challenging environment.”
