Siemens: IoT Drive

Friday, February 2nd, 2018 | 116 Views

The Simotics IQ from Siemens is a drive concept that is compatible with the Internet of Things’ technology. The lowvoltage
motors are fitted with a compact sensor box which captures important operating and condition parameters and transmits them by WiFi to the cloud.

The operating data can be stored and analysed by the IQ MindApp on MindSphere—it 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. By applying specifically configurable warning limits, maintenance can be planned before plant downtime occurs, optimising productivity.
