Spiesshofer, ABB Americas Region President Greg Scheu.
smart sensor enables transcontinental industrial digitalization," said
Spiesshofer. "The sensor reduces the downtime of motors by up to 70
percent, extends their life span by up to 30 percent, and cuts energy
consumption by as much as 10 percent. If all industrial electric motors
worldwide were equipped with our smart sensors, the energy savings would be
equivalent to the output of 100 large power plants."
