Smart motor as the name suggests, is an intelligent device that can be programmed to adjust the speed and torque of a motor by altering the frequency and voltage supply. In traditional motors, mechanical elements are used to regulate the torque and speed of a motor. However, smart motors uses sophisticated power electronics to control position and speed of the motor as per application requirement. It includes a control unit, an encoder and an amplifier. All that is required for it to operate is power, and either an internal program, or serial commands from outside or both.

Smart motor functions combining the operation of variable speed drives, control unit, and motor thereby, providing integrating hardware and software and carrying out a process efficiently and effectively. Furthermore, smart motor offers smooth acceleration and deceleration to protect the system mechanics. In pumping system, smart motors are widely used to improve energy savings, reduce heat loss, and to control cooling water pumps.
Industrial Smart Motor Market – Trends and Opportunities
Industrial smart motors are becoming an integral part of industrial automation and robotic applications as they consume less energy than traditional motors and therefore are more efficient. Also, they offer multiple set point speeds and can be easily programmed to run at any one speed setting. And depending on the type of motor, their starting torque may be adjusted from around 30% to 300% or more. Furthermore, since smart motors incorporate their own protection and control functions, the need for ancillary components in them is highly reduced. High speed and heavy load operations are specifically increasingly using smart motors to reduce power transmission leakage. Thus increase in adoption of smart motors in industrial applications such as material handling, pumps, conveyor belts, etc. is driving the industrial smart motor market across the world.
Higher cost as compared to traditional motors is expected to affect the industrial smart motor market especially in developing economies. However, with decreasing initial cost, the adoption of smart motor is anticipated to increase during the forecast period.
