ST Engineering today announced that its non-intrusive AGIL Smart Lift Monitoring solution will be progressively installed on lifts in Singapore starting this year. Transforming scheduled and preventive lift maintenance regimes into digitalised and predictive maintenance, the company said, AGIL Smart Lift Monitoring solution addresses key challenges in the industry while elevating standards in lift safety and reliability.
According to the company, the new solution enables remote lift status monitoring and diagnostics, providing centralised, real-time visibility of lift operations across different manufacturer brands, models and locations to the building owner, lift operators and technicians. This enables early anomaly detection, reporting and resolution to enhance operational efficiency, lift safety and reliability.
Co-developed with established lift measurement device manufacturer Henning GmbH & Co. KG (Henning), the cloud-based AGIL Smart Lift Monitoring solution employs remote diagnostics and edge analytics which is backed by proven smart sensor technology. Brandagnostic and compatible with most manufacturer brands and models, the plug and play solution is said to eliminate the need to integrate with existing lift systems, allowing quick installation in a flexible and scalable manner that supports multi-tenancy, multi-asset and multi-site management. Its patented rope sensor technology is said to allow quick deployment.
“Smart sensors installed on the lifts for multi-edge computing and data collection, and undergo sense-making at the secure and unified IoT platform. This generate real-time insights on lift performance and provides predictive analytics of individual lift components for maintenance planning that leads to reduced lift downtime and optimised component service life. These improve efficiency and reduce unnecessary costs and wastage, leading to more sustainable lift maintenance in the long-term,” noted an official release.
Integrated with a mobile application, the AGIL Smart Lift Monitoring solution provides real-time alerts and incident updates on the go, including remote diagnostics that identify possible causes and provide recommendations for accurate and quicker diagnoses of lift issues.
