SMART MONITORING OF YOUR PLANT
Developed to simplify and speed up the operation, maintenance and management of industrial plants, the WEG Motion Fleet Management is the ideal solution for monitoring and increasing the uptime of your industrial drive fleet. Based on cloud computing technology, the performance of assets can be monitored at any time, from any part of the world
The WEG Motion Fleet Management allows checking the operating status of low and medium voltage motors and drives (VSDs and soft-starters), gearboxes, gearmotors, compressors and other assets installed in any type of industry or facility. Through periodic data collection and advanced data processing, both on the edge and in the cloud, valuable insights are obtained. Thus, it is possible to establish predictive maintenance plans taking into account the operating condition of the fleet (condition-based maintenance). This approach reduces the unplanned downtime, optimizes repair actions and speeds up the decision-making of the Operations and Maintenance team. The result is increased uptime and reduce the drive fleet TCO (total cost of ownership)
CONTROL FLEXIBILITY, MANAGEMENT EFFICIENCY AND MAINTENANCE PLANNING
The Importance of Online Asset Monitoring
One of the main reasons an industry loses productivity and profitability is unplanned production downtimes. Most corrective maintenance events could be avoided if machine and equipment parts were being continuously monitored (online monitoring). The WEG Motion Fleet Management solution is a high-level tool for the operation and maintenance team to monitor and manage the drive fleet by means of data collection hardware, gateways for sending data to the cloud and software for data view and advanced analysis.
With the WEG Motion Fleet Management, it is possible to implement a well-planned predictive maintenance methodology, taking into account the operating condition of the asset. Knowing the condition of assets online helps to optimize the operation and maintenance resources. Additionally, approaches of this kind contribute to increasing the service life of the assets, since, in general, a sudden failure results in stress and degradation of the mechanical and electrical elements of the equipment.

The WEG Motion Fleet Management is a modular solution, with a flexible structure based on layers, which meets the customers’ needs.
Assets - The WEG Motion Fleet Management allows online monitoring of low and medium voltage motors and drives, as well as gearboxes, gearmotors, compressors, pumps and fans/exhausters.
Scan - WEG Scans and Gateways are hardware designed for collecting data and connecting assets to the WEG cloud server, which hosts the WEG Motion Fleet Management application. For motor monitoring, the WEG Motor Scan and Gateway Cassia X1000 are used — data can be uploaded via gateway or smartphone. For low or medium voltage drives, data is sent through the WEG Drive Scan
Management - The Management layer of the WEG Motion Fleet Management application receives data from the WEG Scans, and it allows exploring the features present in the solution — it is the basic layer. Additionally, users will be able to complement their experience with the Specialist and Exchange modules. It can be accessed anywhere via internet whenever a subscription plan to the system is available (the plans are annual)
Diagnostics and Integration - With active subscriptions to the Management layer of the WEG Motion Fleet Management, users will be able to complement their experiences by subscribing to specific modules such as the WEG Specialist and the WEG Exchange.
Specialist Module - The Specialist module uses algorithms specially developed by WEG for advanced data analysis through Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. Those algorithms are applied to the data collected by WEG Scans and thus generate useful information, something essential for an efficient fleet management
Exchange Module - The Exchange module allows the customer to integrate the collected and stored data in the WEG Motion Fleet Management with their own management system and/or platforms.
