Smart Sensor for hazardous areas

hazardous areas

Condition monitoring solution for rotating machines in explosive atmospheres

The high-performance ABB Ability™ Smart Sensor for hazardous areas monitors the health and performance of rotating machines operating in explosive atmospheres. ATEX, IECEx and NEC 500 certified, it detects potential machine disturbances before they impact on reliability, productivity and safety.

ABB’s advanced algorithms analyze the data collected by the Smart Sensor and turn it into meaningful information users can act upon. This extends the lifetime of equipment, cuts maintenance costs and reduces or prevents unplanned downtime due to breakdowns.
