Electrical motors can be found in every production process where they power a large number of applications. Process industries such as cement production, mining, and oil & gas experience large financial losses if critical equipment stops working, and utilizing the motors maximally is an important task of asset managers.
Because industries demand from motors to operate in the harshest conditions, there are many issues that cause motors to stop working and increase maintenance costs for the operators.
Expert condition monitoring system (EMCM) is a tailor-made, online solution for large and medium voltage synchronous motors. The system measures the most important motor values and allows plant personnel to get full insight into motor health. Thanks to its high level of modularity, almost any motor value can be measured and integrated with monitoring values of the gearbox and end application (e.g. pump, fan, turbine, e.c.). The advanced options built into the system help planning maintenance periods and while achieving lower inventory, overhaul, and labor costs. Armed with a complete insight into critical applications, asset managers can predict their lifetime and health.
