Smart Motors Market: Overview
Smart motor is an intelligent, and programmable device able to adjust the frequency and voltage supply in order to alter the speed and torque of a motor. In traditional motors, mechanical elements are used to control the speed, torque, and position of a motor. However, smart motors use sophisticated power electronics to control motor as per the application requirement. Smart motor combines the functionality of motor, speed controlling device such as variable speed drives, and control unit providing integration of hardware, software to carry out a process efficiently and effectively.
In addition, it provides smooth acceleration and deceleration to protect the system mechanics. Furthermore, it allows users to program start, stop, and speed of the motor rendering to the application requirements. In pumping system, smart motors are in wide use to improve the energy savings, reduced heat loss, and to control cooling water pumps. In applications such as conveyor systems, pressure sensors are used to measure the load on the conveyor and from sensor inputs smart motor controls the speed, start and stop actions of motor.
Smart Motors Market: Drivers and Restraints
Smart motor helps in reducing the energy consumption in applications where variety of load conditions are used in a process. Smart motors are capable of near field communication allowing to control motor in less safety processes. Smart motors have less maintenance cost as compare to traditional motors due to control units which monitors the performance of motors in a process such as production process, conveyor process, and other.
In addition, with the increasing requirement of adjustable speed in applications such as material handling, pumping systems, and fan systems are expected to drive the demand for smart motors. However, with variable frequency adjustments capability of smart motors might be potentially harmful to equipment and environment. Furthermore, smart motors require some additional spare parts/ components such as speed control device increasing overall cost of system. In addition, capital investment required for smart motors is more than traditional motors. These factors are expected to restrain the wide scale use of smart motors. The increasing use of smart-phone in industrial applications such as smart-phone controlled smart motor, and integration of internet of things in industrial processes is expected to provide opportunities for adoption on smart motors in forecast period.
