Answers to questions

What is condition monitoring?

Condition monitoring is an important tool in the predictive maintenance of machines. By collecting and analyzing certain signals from motors, developing faults and inefficiencies can be identified, and unplanned downtime can be avoided.

There are a number of different signals that can be taken into account when monitoring mechanical assets. Traditional techniques were mostly based around vibration analysis, but more modern, innovative techniques focus on ESA (electrical signature analysis).

What is electrical signature analysis (ESA)?

ESA stands for electrical signature analysis. Where other condition monitoring technologies analyze vibrations or oil or temperature, ESA analyzes current and voltage.

It’s a close cousin to motor circuit analysis, or MCA. The difference is that ESA is performed while the machine is running (or “online”), while MCA is performed while the machine is deenergized (“offline”).

Electrical signature analysis is based on the fact that subtle changes in a machine’s operation affect the connected motor’s magnetic field, which then affects the supply voltage and operating current. (For this reason, ESA works equally well on generators.) Using a variety of analytical techniques, ESA can provide a detailed picture of what’s going on across the entire drive train, from motor to transmission to load.

What is SAM4?

SAM4 analyzes current and voltage sinewaves to provide insights into the condition and performance of electric motors and rotating equipment.  It can detect mechanical and electrical failures that occur throughout the drivetrain. The technology is based on Electrical Signature Analysis (ESA) and the hardware is installed inside the motor control cabinet (MCC),  not on the asset itself.

SAM4 has three distinct benefits that jointly drive value add:

  1. Truly remote monitoring
  2. Detects mechanical and electrical failures
  3. Delivers performance and optimisation insights
What is SAM4 Health?

SAM4 Health

SAM4 Health is a system to help you prevent unexpected machine failure by detecting electrical and mechanical faults through analysis of current and voltage signals.

Through machine learning and electrical signature analysis, SAM4 offers superior fault detection accuracy: over 90% of failures—both mechanical and electrical—up to 5 months in advance.

SAM4’s sensors install inside the motor control cabinet, not on the asset in the field, making hazards and location no barrier to reliable asset monitoring.

What is SAM4 Energy?

SAM4 Energy

SAM4 Energy is a system that helps you reduce machine energy waste and cut emissions to reach your net zero goals faster.

SAM4 Energy is the world’s first continuous monitoring system for industrial machine efficiency. Our world leading analytics platform diagnoses the causes of energy inefficiency in industrial assets and provides concrete action points to improve on.

How does SAM4 work?

SAM4 generates high frequency measurements from inside the motor control cabinet (MCC). The current and voltage measurements are ‘translated’ into a frequency spectrum. In order to detect upcoming failures, different measurements are compared. Deviation from the ‘normal pattern’ may indicate upcoming failures. 

ESA can detect and localize mechanical faults in diverse parts of the connected asset.

What makes SAM4 unique?
Does Samotics offer self-service?

No, SAM4 is only provided with a MaaS subscription (Monitoring as a Service).
Self-service is not available for SAM4.
