Volta Knowledge by Volta Insite: Automated Motor Monitoring for Critical Electrical Assets

A mechanical crisis is never something a business wants to deal with, yet it is probably something all businesses have experienced. George Galea, Vice President of Field Services for Volta Insite, joined Host Tyler Kern to discuss how automated monitoring of motors can alleviate the frantic rush for mechanical repairs.

Now more than ever, predictive maintenance is essential. Steel cost is up 100 percent, causing product prices to rise and shipping times to increase due to the supply chain disruption. Predictive maintenance of critical electrical assets tells a business when the assets will fail and helps identify which motors to stock and helps companies make the decision to buy spares ahead of time. “If you’re going to have any durability, any kind of maintenance of profits in the organization, is that you have to be able to predict when you’re going to have to service a certain asset,” stated Galea.

Many businesses think an automation system is adequate for maintenance. However, like the check engine light on a car, these systems are meant for control, not diagnosis and maintenance. On the other hand, the assay provides fine, granular control. It provides knowledge about when a motor needs to be replaced, the characteristics and operation, and can recommend if a certain application is wrong for a motor or asset. Galea explained, “With ESA, you really leverage your experience and the knowledge you have against anything that the market can throw at you. You are optimizing.”

Without data, you can’t make any informed decision. Volta provides data and makes it actionable to people by putting it in common terms and talking to clients to decrease financial burdens and crises from occurring.
