ABB launched a new service product for hoist systems: Hoist Performance Monitoring Service. With this solution, ABB experts can monitor and analyze the hoist system remotely. Regular monitoring ensures that possible failures are detected before causing severe problems, ABB said.

ABB’s Hoist Performance Monitoring Service connects customers hoist system to ABB experts to monitor and analyze the hoist’s condition and performance. The new service links hardware monitoring with secure remote access options and expert software. Hoist service experts provide a scheduled quarterly analysis of collected data against established key performance indicators (KPIs). By utilizing remote sessions with ABB engineers, corrective actions can be implemented. After every analysis, the customer gets an associated report. If the monitored hoist system shows abnormal conditions, pre-established triggers alert the customer immediately. ABB proactively investigates the source of the alarm and provides recommendations to restore process performance.

ABB’s Hoist Performance Monitoring Service uses non-stop data collection and analysis to transform raw data into actionable information, quickly pinpointing issues so that the hoist operator can ensure optimal performance of equipment and systems, ABB said.
