Smartstep® Escalator Condition Monitoring

Wireless-enabled SmartStep®

Transmission Dynamics® introduces SmartStep® – a sophisticated in-service data logging system crafted to oversee escalator operation in real-time. This system not only captures and reports potential issues but also assists operators by providing critical insights into escalator health.

SmartStep® is installed on a standard escalator step. This allows operating parameters of the entire escalator to be acquired, allowing for faults such as drive chain imbalance and track misalignment to be diagnosed directly from the data.

Escalator Issues can be serious

Reassurance

Consistent behaviour mapping confirms no need for concern.

Predictive Maintenance

Makes maintenance proactive rather than reactive by identifying issues like drive chain imbalance, uneven chain wear, and other abnormalities.

Operational Insights

Collects additional data related to passenger behaviour, aiding in predictive loading and escalator health analysis.

Efficiency in Maintenance

Provides key data for validating the effectiveness of maintenance work.

Automated Instant Alerts

Immediate notifications via email or SMS during rapid escalator deterioration alerts, impacts, and outages to ensure rapid response.

Behind the Scenes

Baseline Deviations

This enables rapid identification of irregularities, streamlining the troubleshooting process and minimising downtime.

Threshold Alerts

Employing an intricate alert system, we proactively identify deviations from established thresholds.

Spectral Analysis

This sophisticated technique uncovers nuanced patterns that can hold crucial information about system behaviour and anomalies.

Data Trending

This perspective offers invaluable insights into long-term behaviour patterns and potential trajectories.

Fleet Analysis

This comprehensive view empowers strategic decision-making by providing insights into fleet-wide performance, trends, and optimisation opportunities.

Usage Monitoring

This scrutiny allows us to identify wear and usage-related trends, facilitating predictive maintenance strategies.

Transmission Dynamics understands the uniqueness of each escalator, and hence the SmartStep® is tailored to develop a distinct “fingerprint” for individual escalators, capturing even the gradual changes in their operations.

Escalator Health Analysis

The system provides comprehensive escalator health analysis, including stress levels, step alignment, smoothness of operation, and track issues.

Condition at a Glance

With a quick glance at the intuitive user interface, users can assess the escalator's condition and identify any potential issues.

SmartStep® simplifies complex analytics with its intuitive graphical user interface (GUI). Users receive actionable insights at a glance, thanks to a traffic light colour system: green for optimal operation, amber for caution, and red for required action. Automated SMS and email alerts ensure timely updates, making advanced data management both efficient and user-friendly.
