Escalator Condition Monitoring System
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.

Behind the Scenes
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.
Accurately positioned strain gauges detect structural loading.
The system’s Rainflow Counting algorithms enable the evaluation of useful remaining life.
Advanced algorithms enable automatic detection and reporting of problematic locations.
The SmartStep® system enables evaluation of passenger throughput.
SmartStep® automatically detects and reports changes in operational conditions.
Escalator Health Analysis Data Outputs and User Interface
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.
Deployed across critical transport systems in the UK, the SmartStep® has proven its worth by significantly reducing escalator downtimes and refining maintenance processes.
