How will the condition monitoring solution help plants to reduce costs?
- The traditional approach to dedicated condition monitoring has not made it cost effective for LV motors in most cases. Therefore a condition based strategy is rarely used in the maintenance of LV motors.
- As a result, component failure in LV motors can often lead to secondary damage which not only increases repair costs but also downtime.
- The ABB solution enables a more universal deployment of condition monitoring for LV motors. Defects can be identified before failure, maintenance moved into planned windows of opportunity and secondary damage avoided.These factors will significantly reduce repair and downtime costs.
