Avoid unscheduled production downtime with the smart motor sensor

An unscheduled production stoppage is a situation that needs to be avoided in any type of industry, as it generates additional costs for corrective maintenance, loss of raw materials and production downtime.

Metalworking industry

If you work in the metalworking industry, you know that a sudden motor breakdown has significant effects on the company's entire production chain, such as:

  • Production stoppage, especially if it is an essential motor in the production line.
  • Impact on delivery times, generating customer dissatisfaction and affecting the company's reputation in the market.
  • Repair and replacement costs, the corrective maintenance required generates many high and unforeseen costs.
  • Loss of business: production stoppages not only generate direct costs, but also imply a loss of sales opportunities.


These are some of the impacts that an unscheduled production stoppage due to an unexpected engine breakdown can have on your company.


However, you can avoid all this through predictive maintenance, using the ADI OtoSense smart motor sensor.


With this sensor you will have the status of the motor in real time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

More than just a sensor

ADI's OtoSense smart motor sensor monitors the condition of electric motors by combining the best detection technologies with cutting-edge data analysis using artificial intelligence.


In this way, it detects anomalies and defects in motors, making it possible to predict maintenance cycles with high precision and avoid unscheduled production downtime.


Regardless of the type of engine, the smart sensor provides the most critical diagnostics, translating data into actionable insights.


Thus, the smart sensor enables 24/7 condition-based monitoring of all your low-voltage electric motors. It presents information clearly, telling you what the problem is and how to solve it.

Key features

  • Analyzes the behavior of equipment on a frequent basis, which makes it possible to predict when electrical and mechanical problems may occur and how they impact the production line.
  • It provides the information to not only diagnose the problem, but to understand its severity and trigger maintenance teams to act quickly and effectively.
  • By continuously monitoring the performance and health of the engines, you can see which parts should be replaced when, reducing the cost of unnecessary stock.


Best of all, the ADI OtoSense intelligent motor sensor can be installed quickly and easily, without the need to disconnect the motor.

SMS configuration


Installation can be done while the engine is running and ADI OtoSense can be configured via the mobile app.

SMS learning


Once the sensor has been installed and configured, ADI OtoSense begins to learn normal operating conditions.
