What is the ABB Ability™ Smart Sensor?

The ABB Ability™ Smart Sensor is a pocket-sized performance sensor that connects wirelessly to motors, pumps, and other machinery to measure key parameters from the surface of the equipment to obtain informative data about its performance and condition.

With the Ability™ Smart Sensor, plant managers can remotely monitor equipment and receive real- time data about its performance. Any inefficiencies or deviations from normal parameters are reported quickly so that remedial action can be taken. Maintenance can be planned according to need and evolving issues, rather than being constrained by fixed schedules, thereby reducing unplanned downtime, cutting costs, and extending the lifespan of machinery.
