German Chancellor Angela Merkel and US President Barack Obama experienced ABB’s groundbreaking new smart sensor at Hanover Industrial Fair. The two leaders were shown how ABB’s smart sensor can improve the productivity of hundreds of millions of electric motors by connecting them for the first time to cloud-based services. “The smart sensor enables transcontinental industrial digitalisation,” said Ulrich Spiesshofer, ABB CEO. “The sensor reduces the downtime of motors by up to 70 per cent, extends their life span by up to 30 per cent, and cuts energy consumption by as much as 10 per cent. If all industrial electric motors worldwide were equipped with our smart sensors, the energy savings would be equivalent to the output of 100 large power plants,” he added.
