SABO Mobile IT – KSB Guard – Remote monitoring of KSB pumps

Project goals

KSB is a leading German supplier of pumps, valves, and related services. KSB products are characterised by high reliability. On the one hand, they should run smoothly. On the other hand, it is important to keep the effort for inspection and maintenance of the system as low as possible, in order to control the maintenance process and to use personnel and spare parts effectively. SABO has created a frontend application for KSB's customers that supports service tasks, prepares pump data in a clear and concise manner, and connects smoothly to the backend. The IoT application can be used on different mobile platforms as well as on a PC. 

Challenges 

SABO's frontend application solution should support all available data platforms and condense the data into clearly structured information, which enables the user to quickly determine necessary actions even with a high number of pumps. After developing the frontend, SABO made the available data usable and transferred it into an IoT application.

Solution 

From the beginning the project management was carried out according to Scrum. Modern technologies ensure a high-performance application: 

  • Xamarin for mobile applications 
  • Angular for web applications (SPA)
  • Cloud platform and backend services on AWS

Results

The KSB Guard application developed by SABO brings together extensive data in a user-friendly manner and creates real added value for users. Potential damage is predicted in advance by KSB Guard, so that measures can be initiated beforehand. On-site operations can be significantly reduced and spare parts can be installed as required. The attractively designed user interface ensures simple and convenient operation. The overall result for the plant operator is a reduction in downtime and lower personnel and maintenance costs.

Partners:
  • Sensor unit: vibration and temperature sensors record data directly from the pump.
  • Transmitter and battery unit: ensures the power supply of the sensor system and transmits the measured data to the gateway. 
  • Gateway: transmits data via the mobile network to the KSB Cloud - under the highest security standards. 
  • Web portal and app: the evaluation of the data and further information about the pump can be read easily and conveniently in the app or on the computer.
  • KSB Guard brings together meaningful data from all integrated pumps, displays it clearly, and allows you to check the systems remotely.
  • The application monitors all pumps at defined intervals and problems are reported at once. Service staff can react immediately and damage can be minimized.
  • New pumps can be quickly registered in the application. The planning of maintenance is simplified, since all relevant information is available in advance. Thus, only necessary maintenance is carried out.
  • All information can be viewed and edited via the web portal or simply directly in the app on iOS and Android devices.
  • KSB Guard also gives users access to operating instructions and exploded drawings, a valuable feature for on-site maintenance work.
