New IoT Motor Concept for Greater Availability and Increased Productivity

Nuremberg - November 21, 2017

  • IoT concept for Simotics motors
  • Monitoring the operating condition of motors
  • Connection to MindSphere open IoT operating system
  • Maximum transparency and increased productivity due to intelligent evaluation: Data analysis by Simotics IQ

With Simotics IQ, the new IoT concept for motors from Siemens, the new Simotics SD low-voltage motors are fitted with a compact sensor box which captures important operating and condition parameters and transmits them by WiFi to the cloud. These operating data can then be stored and analyzed by the Simotics IQ MindApp on MindSphere. The Simotics IQ MindApp provides the user with technical motor data and valuable analytical results on the operation and condition of the motor and proposes, for example, recommended actions for preventive maintenance. This newly acquired operating data transparency allows further increases in productivity to be achieved.

Siemens is demonstrating the connectivity of Simotics IQ live at this year's SPS IPC Drives: A new generation Simotics SD motor is connected to MindSphere while it is running. Intelligent data analytics makes for enhanced process transparency providing the user with significant benefits. Important key performance indicators are analyzed and displayed in MindApp such as temperature or transient oscillation. This allows the user to react early. By applying specifically configurable warning limits and intelligent analytics, the customer can plan maintenance activities in good time and react before plant downtime occurs. By integrating several motors, Simotics IQ MindApp is able to not only support their full condition monitoring range but also to manage the installed fleet of motors in terms of such items as energy consumption or maintenance scheduling, for example.
