Campbell Electric Motors & ABB Roadshow 2017

Following the resounding success of the 2017 Campbell Electric Motors & ABB Roadshow, which saw representatives from over 70 companies nationwide attend our shows in Cork, Dublin and Castlebar, both Campbell Electric Motors and ABB would like to take this opportunity to thank all our valued customers for their attendance. We appreciate the extremely positive and enthusiastic feedback on the relevant days and weeks that followed, and we would just like to reiterate how this was very much appreciated.

Each event covered a range of topics, including;

  • The Most Common Failures of Electric Motors

  • New EU Standards on Motor Efficiency

  • Industry 4.0 and the benefits it can bring

  • Motors for the Water Industry

  • New Motors Technology

The product garnering most attention, by far, throughout each show was the new ABB Ability Smart Sensor. This new product from the ABB portfolio provides a cost-effective solution for condition monitoring your Low Voltage electric motors. The sensor boasts easy fitting, the pack itself includes all hardware required to successfully fit the sensor to the motor.

The key features and benefits of the sensor include:

  • Measurement taking every hour with the storage capacity of one month.

  • Within this month the data is collected either manually with a smart phone or automatically via a gateway

  • This data is then analysed by the powerful algorithms of ABB, the world's leading manufacturer of electric motors.

The ABB Ability Smart Sensor is effectively like a fitness wristband for electric motors.

  • Fit it easily to the surface of a motor, without wiring or machining, and collect operational data and health information of the motor.

  • 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.

  • With IoT-technology the sensor performs at a low cost that was unthinkable a few years ago.
