During Hannover Messe 2020, ABB had extended the scope of applications for ABB Smart Sensors with a new generation design for motors in hazardous areas. Chemical and oil and gas customers can now benefit from cost-efficient condition monitoring in a wide variety of applications.

Many manufacturers use time-consuming and potentially dangerous manual processes to inspect servo motors for insulation issues. If this sounds like your company, it might be time to switch over to an automated, remote-based servo motor condition monitoring solution that works around the clock.

Bender, a manufacturer of electrical safety products worldwide, has recently released a new insulation monitoring device, the isoCHA425HV+AGH420-1, that meets both common charging standards: CSS and CHAdeMO.

 

 

 

The Fluke 1550C performs digital insulation testing up to 5 kV, and makes motor maintenance easier in 3 ways. It’s the perfect tool for preventive or predictive maintenance programs designed to identify potential equipment failures before they occur.

 

 

 

ABB has entered into a partnership with ACA Systems, the leading supplier of porosity sensors, to offer paper mill customers a proven technology that stabilizes the process to enable excellent roll quality when measuring online porosity.

 

 

 

New models of Contrinex DW series round proximity sensors are offered in barrel sizes from 8mm to 30mm.  Flush and non-flush mount models are available with standard or extended sensing distances, with complete overload protection.

 

 

 

Manufacturers currently using manual processes for quality inspections are facing two major challenges. One is a rising demand for product quality, variety and reliability. The other is the need to protect workers from COVID-19 through social distancing on the manufacturing floor. Both are creating intense pressure to automate visual inspection needs.

 

 

 

POSITAL’s Multiturn Counter Module is a zero-maintenance rotation counter designed to be integrated into motors or other types of rotating machinery to provide their control systems with a reliable count of the number of rotations the machine has completed. These modules can be used in many situations where rotation counts are needed, including positioning tasks in machine tools, robots, packaging machinery and medical equipment.

 

 

 

Allied Motor MaintenanceSmall motors – both AC and DC – serve as critical points in industrial operations. They may be integral to automation and equipment control and serve multiple purposes to mechanically drive and actuate systems and equipment, but are often replaced rather than repaired or reconditioned.

Larger motors may be repaired, rewound, and sent into a motor rewind pool.  However, many motors will simply be replaced when imminent signs of failure are detected using smart equipment, instrumentation, and tools discussed below.
