Reduce Costs and Boost Asset Uptime with Motor Management
Why motor management?
On average, electric motors consumeapproximately 60%of the electricity produced to support manufacturing industries and drive critical infrastructure assets such as conveyor belts, pumps, compressors, agitators, fans, and others. However, despite their key operational role, traditionalmotor managementapproaches often fail to optimize performance.
Having one strategy that integrates motor control and protection solutions can help plants simultaneously reduce costs while increasing production. Robust connection and communication between the motor and the automation systems play an important role in minimizing instances of motor failure. In addition, overall energy costs are reduced when energy data from motors is monitored so that function can be better aligned to workload.
Key enablers for migrating to advanced motor management
Implementing a more holisticmotor managementstrategy requires careful planning and the right combination of technologies. Traditionally, most companies have failed to pursue the integration of motor control, automation, and energy systems because of the perceived technical complexities. Fortunately, thanks to technology breakthroughs and new trends such as digitization and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), advanced connectivity makes the implementation of a comprehensive motor management strategy affordable and feasible.
