Condition Monitoring Predictive Maintenance Solution Increases Safety
The ABB Ability Condition Monitoring for measurement devices is an innovative, digital solution that will keep continuous gas analyzers under control to ensure clean air operations. The ground-breaking, first-to-market solution will be launched at Hannover Messe in April 2020.
The new digital solution keeps track of the health of ABB measurement devices. Performing real-time data analysis, the ABB Ability Condition Monitoring for measurement devices identifies problems fast, drawing attention to significant or undesirable changes in device conditions, states the company.
Regular health check reports provide users with recommendations based on health status, allowing on-site personnel to leverage their own expertise and enabling remote assistance from the company when required.
By implementing the predictive maintenance approach of the new digital solution for measurement devices, equipment can be actively monitored and managed to prevent problems from arising. This enables customers to make informed decisions resulting in optimised operations, adds the firm.
Predictive maintenance reduces customers’ potential safety risks and helps them avoid fines. It also lowers operating and maintenance costs due to less emergency maintenance and fewer unplanned outages. When carried out through Condition Monitoring it ensures the highest level of availability and reliability of equipment, reducing repairs and preventing downtime, shares the company.
Furthermore, Condition Monitoring for measurement devices allows the customer to move to a planned upgrade cycle for assets, resulting in product lifecycle extension and an increase in return on investment. The digital solution also provides a streamlined process with one supplier responsible for all equipment management and maintenance. It can be used together with ABB Ability Remote Assistance for measurement devices and Dynamic QR code assistance for analysers or as a stand-alone solution.
The new digital solution is part of the ABB Advanced Services offering for Measurement & Analytics which is dedicated to enabling improved utilisation and performance of automation equipment, processes, and personnel.
