A single plant trip or failure can lead to significant production losses, especially in industries operating in hazardous areas. Monitoring is essential to minimize any risk of unprecedented shutdowns, and most installations use smart wireless sensors.

However, taking such steps for motors operating in hazardous environments has been challenging due to the lack of cost-efficient and easy-to-implement solutions. These areas have flammable gases or vapor which needs special precautions to prevent explosions. Luckily, ABB has invented smart sensors that can help monitor motors in such environments.
