ABB's new product--smart sensor for measuring motor status

On June 29, 2017, ABB, a global technology leader, officially launched two high-performance motor products to the Chinese market at the "Power and Automation World" event held in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province - HDS series that can meet precise motion and position control Permanent magnet AC synchronous servo motors and ABB Ability TM smart sensors for easy condition monitoring of low voltage motors.

HDS series permanent magnet AC synchronous servo motor is a high-performance, cost-effective general-purpose servo motor developed and launched by ABB for the Chinese market. It has the characteristics of high torque density, high response, and high stability, and can meet precise motion and position control. This servo motor is made of NdFeB permanent magnet material, with ultra-high intrinsic coercivity, its excellent overload capacity can achieve three times the standard guaranteed peak torque, and low cogging torque and torque ripple can ensure excellent Excellent low speed and system control performance, feedback optional Hyperface DSL single-cable solution, easy installation, through less wiring, smaller space requirements, bringing users overall cost reduction.

"With the continuous upgrading of the manufacturing industry and the rapid development of manufacturing technology, the demand for servo drives in the electromechanical industry continues to grow. ABB began to deploy servo motors for business development in China in the second half of 2014. In March 2015, the first one was built in Shanghai. A new servo motor production line in China and a new generation of servo motor production lines will be built in the second half of 2016. This HDS series permanent magnet AC synchronous servo motor is developed and produced locally for the Chinese market.” Lin, Product Manager of ABB Servo Motors Ting said. HDS series permanent magnet AC synchronous servo motors have a wide range of applications, such as electronics, printing, medical, new energy, high-speed logistics sorting, and many other industries. Its flexible design makes it easier to customize for different applications.

Another new product announced by ABB Motors during the Power & Automation World event is the ABB Ability TM smart sensor for easy condition monitoring of low-voltage motors. After its debut at the Hannover Messe 2016, this smart product has received widespread attention in the industry. At the new product launch conference on June 29, this star product was officially launched to the Chinese market.

Smart sensors are like wearing a health watch to the motor, regularly and accurately monitoring motor operation and health data, and sending the data to a secure cloud server through a smartphone. Subsequently, the data is calculated and analyzed through algorithms accumulated by ABB for decades, and the analysis results are pushed to the user's smartphone terminal or user-exclusive platform. Once a motor problem is detected, the system will send an early warning message to the customer. This smart sensor can reduce unplanned downtime by up to 70%, extend motor life by up to 30%, and improve energy efficiency by up to 10%. These quantifiable added values ​​mean that the investment can be recovered within a year. (according to China Instrument Network)

Seven new products of CNNC Sufa passed the national appraisal

China Machinery Industry Federation, entrusted by the National Energy Administration, hosted a large-scale pressurized water reactor nuclear power plant nuclear safety valve prototype appraisal meeting in Suzhou. The first and second nuclear valve prototypes successfully passed the appraisal of the expert group. The expert group agreed that the development of the seven prototypes is a successful example of the combination of production, education and research, and independent innovation. The development of nuclear secondary wedge type parallel plate electric gate valve and pneumatic diaphragm valve has filled the domestic gap. It has reached the advanced level of similar products abroad and further promoted the process of localization of nuclear power valves.

Qiu Jiangang, Deputy General Manager of China National Nuclear Corporation and Chairman of CNNC, Huang Ori, Director of the Technical Equipment Department of the National Energy Administration, Ye Qizhen, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, Sui Yongbin, Chief Engineer of China Machinery Industry Federation, Ye Darong, Deputy Director of the Major Office, and China Nuclear Instruments and Equipment Manager Relevant leaders and experts from the company, China Nuclear Power Engineering Co., Ltd., China General Nuclear Power Engineering Co., Ltd. and other units attended the appraisal meeting.

Qiu Jiangang said: "For a long time, CNNC has always regarded the manufacture of domestically produced nuclear power equipment as an industry. Now, CNNC will take nuclear first-class high-end valves as its next development direction. Similarly, we also hope that the owners will cooperate with our equipment. Manufacturers will work together to expand the industry with more flexible cooperation methods and jointly promote the process of localization of nuclear power valves."


Oriole said that from less than 4% in the second phase of Lingao to more than 40% in Fuqing and Fangjiashan, the localization of pump valves in China has made rapid progress in the past few years. As the vanguard of my country's valve industry, CNNC has made new breakthroughs in the key system valves of nuclear power, breaking the technological monopoly of foreign countries, improving the localization rate of nuclear power equipment, and has become the backbone of the localization of nuclear power equipment. The government will be obliged to actively provide strong support to expand the market for it. In addition, the owners should also actively combine the production, education, and research of the manufacturing plant to jointly raise the level of localization of nuclear power equipment to a new level.
