Reducing unplanned downtime to minimize maintenance costs and respond faster to critical issues is key for every automotive manufacturer. OMRON’s solution monitors vibration, temperature and current and insulation resistance monitoring to predict motor failures and eliminate the need for manual inspections.
Whether legacy or new, industrial equipment in automotive plants requires proper maintenance to maximize its lifespan. Aging equipment is one of the top causes of unplanned downtime, so manufacturers experiencing high maintenance costs can benefit from a new strategy. Traditional preventive maintenance methods take place at scheduled intervals and require skilled workers to complete time-consuming manual processes. Predictive maintenance, on the other hand, is a proactive strategy that involves evaluating equipment condition through continuous monitoring.
For automotive manufacturers looking to improve their predictive maintenance and avoid costly shutdown due to motor failure, the K6CM motor monitoring device can easily provide motor status to prevent unplanned production shutdown.
The K6CM is the latest motor condition monitoring device with the ability to quantify the status of three-phase induction motors. With built-in EtherNet/IP & Modbus TCP communication, you can remotely monitor motor current, vibration & temperature, or insulation resistance depending on the model selected. The K6CM provides 24/7 monitoring to guard against motor failure by performing multiple checks and alerting users of abnormalities. This device allows the user to perform predictive maintenance, respond quicker to issues, and reduce operational costs.
