Electrical signature analysis-based condition monitoring for AC motors and rotating equipment

Page last modified
August 4 2023

SAM4 detects over 90% of developing faults up to five months before failure, enabling maintenance teams to prevent unplanned downtime, cut down on routine inspections and time-based maintenance. Every SAM4 alert includes both a description of the detected fault and recommended actions, so you can plan and conduct your work efficiently.

SAM4 provides features such as a real-time pump performance dashboard that can help you steer pump operation in real time, as well as provide longer-term insights into the pump's performance and energy use. Regular insight reports help you get the most out of SAM4's data analysis.

Our online phone-and-tablet-optimized installation tutorial provides clear instructions your team can use to install each sensor in the motor control cabinet within 30 minutes.

SAM4's sensors don't need batteries, and since they install in the Motor Control Cabinet, not on the machine, SAM4 can reliably monitor equipment that's underground, underwater, remote, or exposed to chemicals, heat, and other harsh conditions.

Both ABB and Schneider Electric offer SAM4 as part of their product catalogue, including global, 24/7 support options.
