IoT-Enabled Smart Electric Motors
Connection to the Internet of Things adds value and efficiency to almost every operation. From tracking cargo as it travels around the world, to growing plants without human intervention, several industries are already taking advantage of IoT technology.
One of the most impressive IoT inventions is the smart electric motor. These motors are used in a wide range of situations and environments to reduce or eliminate downtime and improve operational efficiency.
Increase Efficiency, Reduce Downtime
Mint Controls’ IoT-enabled smart electric motors are equipped with sensors that monitor and track the motor’s health and performance. If one of our motors overheats, the system sends an automatic alert to key personnel. In addition to the exact location and cause of the problem, our system also tracks the amount of time needed until maintenance is required. This allows issues to be dealt with quickly and easily and maintenance to be scheduled well in advance.
Increase the Lifespan of Equipment
Vibration is one of the biggest causes of electric motor problems. Too much vibration can lead to electrical imbalance. This reduces the lifespan of the motor and can cause significant damage to equipment. At the very least, excessive vibration can cause the motor to operate slowly and use an excessive amount of energy.
Our solution monitors electric motor vibration and reports problems in real-time. This allows issues to be addressed quickly and easily. Our solution monitors electric motor vibration, temperature, energy usage, and operating efficiency. Relevant data can be viewed at any time, from any location in the world.
Our smart electric motors help prevent downtime and increase efficiency in a variety of situations where reliable service is important. These motors are used by manufacturing plants, amusement parks, and even inside our homes. When it comes to manufacturing, electric motors are used for a number of different things including lifting, pressing, pumping, and drying. Basically every operation that requires motion is controlled by an electric motor.
Electric motors are generally located in areas that are difficult or dangerous to reach by human hands. This makes IoT connection even more valuable. Knowing the exact health and performance of motors at all times, as well as the cause and location of any issues, helps prevent injury caused by manual checks and inspections of motors.
Mint Controls offers remote support as well as on-site support for all of our IoT solutions. We work with each client to develop a solution that fits his or her needs. Please contact us for details.
