Developed to bring more practicality and agility in the operation, maintenance and management of industrial plants, the WEG Motion Fleet Management is the ideal solution to monitor and raise the availability of the industrial fleet. Based on “cloud computing” technology, asset monitoring can be followed at any time and from anywhere in the world.
With WEG Motion Fleet Management it is possible to know the operational status of electric motors, low and medium voltage variable speed drive and soft-starters, smart relay starting WEG(SRW), gearboxes, gearmotors, compressors, among other assets, which are applied in any type of industry or installation. Through periodic data collection and advanced data processing, both at the edge and in the cloud, valuable insights are generated. This way, it is possible to establish predictive maintenance plans, observing the operational condition of the fleet (condition-based maintenance). This approach reduces the number of unplanned stops, optimizes repair actions, and speeds up the decision making process for the operation and maintenance team. The end result is increased availability and reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) of the drive fleet.
One of the main causes of lost productivity and profitability in an industry is unplanned production downtime. Most corrective maintenance events could be avoided if machine components and equipment were being monitored continuously (on-line monitoring).
The WEG Motion Fleet Management solution is a high-level tool for operation and maintenance staff to monitor and manage their fleet; o monitor and manage the drive fleet, through hardware for data acquisition, gateways for sending à cloud and software for data visualization and advanced analysis. With WEG Motion Fleet Management is possible to implement a predictive maintenance methodology, well orchestrated, and observing the operational condition of the asset.
Knowing the condition of the assets online contributes significantly to optimizing operational and maintenance resources, such as spare parts management, increased asset availability, and the reduction of (direct and indirect) costs. Additionally, approaches of this type contribute to the increase of asset lifetime, since, in general, a sudden failure results in stress and degradation of the mechanical and electrical elements of the equipment.
WEG Motion Fleet Management is a modular solution, with a flexible, layer-based structure that adapts to customers' needs. Assets.
WEG Motion Fleet Management allows on-line monitoring of low and medium voltage motors and drives, as well as gearboxes, gearmotors, compressors, pumps and fans/exhausters.
WEG Scans and Gateways are hardware responsible for data collection and connectivity of assets to the WEG cloud server, which hosts the WEG Motion Fleet Management application. To monitor the motors, the WEG Motor Scan and Gateway Cassia X1000 is applied, the data upload can be via gateway or smartphone. As for the low or medium voltage drives, the data upload is performed by the WEG Drive Scan.
The Management layer of the WEG Motion Fleet Management application receives data from the WEG Scans and allows the exploration of the functionalities present in the solution. Remember that the solution is constantly improving and new features will be frequently incorporated into the solution. Additionally, users can complement their experience with the Specialist and Exchange modules. They can access the system from anywhere via the Internet whenever a subscription plan is available, which is annual.
Users can view information related to the monitored assets, such as:
With active subscriptions to the WEG Motion Fleet Management layer, users can complement their experience with subscriptions to specific modules such as WEG Specialist and WEG Exchange.
The Specialist module applies algorithms specially developed by WEG for advanced data analysis, by means of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. These algorithms are applied to the data collected by WEG Scans and thus generate useful information, something essential for efficient fleet management. As is the case of WEG Motor Specialist, which has a sub-module for diagnosing mechanical failure and another for evaluating the engine's energy consumption. Both functionalities were developed by WEG's team of specialists and were validated in the company's laboratories.
These advanced analysis algorithms observe and learn the patterns and operating deviations of the monitored electric motor, generating failure indicators for unbalancing, misalignment, rolling (advanced failure) and external vibration. This type of information is very useful for operation and maintenance staff, as it aids in decision making, speeds up the repair process, and minimizes unscheduled downtime. In order to use the Specialist layer, the respective asset(s) must have an active WEG Motion Fleet Management subscription. Both subscriptions are annual and per asset.
The Exchange module allows the customer to integrate the information collected and present in WEG Motion Fleet Management in its own management system and/or platforms. Through periodic and automatic data requests of the Web Service REST type, the WEG Motion Fleet Management data is sent to the customer's system or a third party system. To use the Exchange layer, the respective asset(s) must have an active Management layer subscription. Exchange subscriptions are annual and per data packet.

The Motion Fleet Management (MFM) is the new software for monitoring assets (motors, variable speed drives, gearboxes, among others) that WEG offers its customers. New customers must be registered on the MFM. If you are already a user of the IoT Portal, this option must be selected.
The mobile app makes the FFT measurements. The customer must get close to the sensor and use the cell phone to make this measurement. Subsequently, the data will be sent via cell phone to the MFM software.
For the data to be available on the MFM, a subscription plan must be associated with the motor. If you do not have one, contact a WEG sales representative in your region.
