ADI OtoSense: Smart Motor Sensor (SMS)

Predictive maintenance for electric motors

In manufacturing, millions of low-voltage motors operate without monitoring, leading to:

  • Inefficiencies
  • Unplanned downtime
  • Production interruption
  • Product spoilage

To avoid these types of issues, Macnica ATD Europe offers ADI OtoSense solution's, Smart Motor Sensor (SMS). Based on an AI, it is a full turnkey hardware and software solution for condition-based monitoring.

SMS solution: turnkey AI-based hardware and software solution

Sensing technology

High performance sensors deliver higher quality data for analysis.

Machine learning

Securely sends data to the cloud to diagnose critical electrical and mechanical motor faults.

Advanced diagnosis

Notifications, diagnostic updates and recommendations provided through web and mobile applications.

SMS solution: benefits

Reduce overall costs:

  • Reduce unforeseen downtimes & avoid catastrophic failures
  • Extend period between overhauls
  • Reduce route-based activities & optimize maintenance resource allocation
  • Better manage spare parts and stock
  • Increase the lifetime of your equipment
  • Optimize motor efficiency

SMS solution: key advantages

Actionable Diagnostics

  • Includes fault severity and recommended actions
  • Performance indicates potential issues with the load or a change in the process that might require additional action

Diagnose 9 mechanical and electrical motor faults



Power System


Stator Winding






Motor Shaft / Balance






Loose / Soft Foot


Cooling System


  • No need to manually set alarms

  • No manual device training required

  • No experts required for initial analysis

Automatically generated diagnostics and alarms customized to your motor


When an electrical or mechanical fault is detected:

  • Notification sent to the mobile app or web platform specifying the diagnosis

  • Severity level of the fault expressed on a scale between 0 and 10

  • Actions recommended to avoid downtime


  • No need to manually set alarms
  • No manual device training required
  • No experts required for initial analysis

Quick to setup, easy to use

Straithforward installation:

  • Non-invasive, quick and easy to mount, the SMS can be deployed on any low-voltage mortr, new or used, within minutes, even while running
  • Commissioning with a dedicated mobile app
