ABB Ability Smart Sensor for mounted bearings

Wednesday, 17 April, 2019 | Supplied by: ABB Australia Pty Ltd



ABB has launched the ABB Ability Smart Sensor for Dodge mounted bearings, part of the ABB Ability Digital Powertrain, which enables health checks for bearings. The smart sensor technology provides an early indicator of any potential problems by assessing the condition of bearings from vibration and temperature information. This helps to prevent downtime on applications such as bulk material handling conveyors typically found in the mining, aggregate and cement industries, as well as applications in the food and beverage and air handling sectors.

ABB Ability Smart Sensor for mounted bearings uses the latest algorithms to assess, manage and ensure performance of components. Since 80% of bearing failures are lubrication related, a bearing ‘running hot’ can indicate that proper lubrication procedures are not in place. Monitoring a bearing’s vibration can indicate potential system problems.

The smart sensor easily mounts on the bearing and communicates wirelessly via a smartphone or other device. This capability keeps employees safe, enabling easy access to the health data of bearings in locations that may be difficult or dangerous to reach.
