Smart engine sensor for predictive maintenance

Predictive maintenance is a process that contributes to operational efficiency in industries, keeping motors and equipment in optimum condition and preventing drops in performance. When predictive maintenance is carried out using an intelligent motor sensor, it is even easier to guarantee an increase in the lifespan of equipment.


By identifying potential problems early on, the sensor makes it possible to take corrective action before significant failures occur. This approach is different from predictive maintenance carried out using traditional methods, such as corrective maintenance, where repairs are carried out after a failure, and preventive maintenance, where repairs are carried out at fixed intervals.

Advantages of predictive maintenance

Predictive maintenance essentially uses technologies such as sensors, remote monitoring and data analysis to monitor engine performance in real time. This makes it possible to detect signs of wear, anomalies or potential failures.


By anticipating these problems, predictive maintenance allows corrections to be made before more serious failures occur, preventing significant damage and reducing the costs associated with replacing parts or the engine itself. In addition, the use of intelligent engine sensors during this action in factories guarantees other advantages, such as:

  • optimization of maintenance programs, concentrating efforts on the components that really need attention and avoiding unnecessary replacement of parts;
  • reduced engine downtime, since early identification of potential problems allows strategic interventions to be scheduled, avoiding unplanned stoppages;
  • a proactive approach to engine management, allowing problems to be identified and resolved before they cause major damage, resulting in an extended service life and reliable, efficient operation.

Secure the benefits of predictive maintenance with ADI's OtoSense intelligent engine sensor

By using the ADI OtoSense intelligent motor sensor, you can guarantee all the advantages we have mentioned.

In this way, ADI OtoSense's intelligent engine sensor detects anomalies and defects in equipment, making it possible to predict maintenance cycles and avoid unplanned downtime. Regardless of the type of engine, this ADI OtoSense technology covers the most critical diagnostics, translating data into actionable insights.


In addition, the intelligent motor sensor enables 24/7 condition-based monitoring of all your low-voltage electric motors. With this equipment, you have clear access to information about the problem and how to solve it.
