Siemens Industry Services announced a new advanced monitoring service for motors. Using Veros Systems technology, Siemens uses high frequency measurements of currents and voltages to continually assess the operating performance and machine health of motors and their mechanical and electrical components.
The data-driven service gives customers real-time information of their motor’s output efficiency, torque, loading, power factor, speed and power quality. In addition, customers receive predictive warnings of impending asset health issues such as bearing failures, rotor bar cracks, soft footing and bolt looseness, coupling issues, impeller cracks and seal leaks.
With the service, Siemens provides all necessary software, hardware and installation services under a fixed rate, annual service contract. No capital, installation or project management efforts are required from the customer, and no additional sensors are required on the rotating equipment itself.
