Collecting and evaluating data and predicting events

Condition Monitoring

  • Regular / permanent capture of the system status using sensor technology and measuring systems, such as endoscopy, thermography and vibration measurement
  • Objective: Condition-oriented maintenance using current system status

Predictive analysis

  • Permanent capture of the system parameters to predict failures
  • SEW concept: Detection of anomalies, diagnosis , prognosis (digital twin)
  • Objective: Predictive maintenance by means of permanent collection of data evaluated by using machine learning procedures


The aim of DriveRadar® is to determine the condition of products, machines and systems on the basis of existing data recorded during operation of SEW-EURODRIVE drive systems. Using modern data analysis methods (machine learning), a digital twin can be used to provide an accurate prediction of possible upcoming damage. DriveRadar® thus makes it possible to prevent failures and unforeseen interruptions in the operating sequence, recognize wear, and minimize machine or system downtimes.

The MOVILINK® DDI digital interface with plug-in hybrid cable is capable of integrating several machines operating on different production lines into a single system. A fully connected data interface for a compact, efficient and flexible solution. The advantages offered by this innovative tool are innumerable and concern both the purely operational aspect - from the downsizing of the cabling and of the plant, to the reduction of the time required to set up the machinery - and the more technological side.

The motor becomes a true digital node, essential for fast data transmission and immediate electronic interconnection of the individual part to the entire central system. Our solution connects the drive to the gear motor, thus allowing precise and immediate information to be sent to the central apparatus, constantly monitoring the operation of the machinery and thus reducing maintenance interventions and possible plant downtime.

Industry 4.0 - Predictive Maintenance

To be faster than the error

Maintenance has become much more important in recent years, particularly as increasingly dynamic and complex production processes and technological opportunities have emerged. It is also an important but – in many sectors – still underused lever for optimizing value creation. Being able to avoid unplanned production stoppages results directly in increased availability. A whole range of options for doing just that are being discussed in both science and industry. As a pioneer in drive technology, SEW-EURODRIVE is already turning visions into reality.

In future, the information and data captured in drive systems will be visualized in a clear, user-friendly way (e.g. trend charts) and processed by cutting-edge analysis workflows (keyword: machine learning). This drive technology monitoring and analysis portfolio is being developed at SEW-EURODRIVE under the name DriveRadar®. The concept aims to make it easy for users working with SEW components and system solutions – even when working remotely – to keep track of how a system is actually behaving when in use and whether maintenance work needs to be carried out. DriveRadar gives operators of these systems the opportunity to unlock considerable added value and tap into potential for optimization. For example, it can provide greater transparency for the operational conditions of a drive, boost the availability of an entire system, make it easier to plan maintenance work, reduce the need to hold spare parts in stock, and create opportunities to optimize processes.

DriveRadar® will also be available for many SEW-EURODRIVE components and system solutions in the future and help operators avoid downtime and improve workflows. Characteristic features from all relevant components can be used to derive straightforward recommendations. As an expert contact, the company offers its customers valuable support in the form of a global service network and a modular service portfolio that can be tailored to specific requirements. Recommendations can be put straight into action.

Raise productivity

The key customer benefit of the DriveRadar® concept will be significantly higher productivity. Thanks to integrated functions that have been specially customized for SEW drive systems and system solutions, customers will be able to avoid unplanned downtime and thus increase availability. At the same time, the continuous monitoring of characteristic features will ensure that maintenance work can be accurately planned.

From the start, there will be a clear focus on delivering a solution that is user-friendly on every level, thus offering customers a whole new user experience in DriveRadar®. This approach will stretch beyond the look and functions of the software interface. This end-to-end approach will also include simple and intuitive installation and the integrated global service network of SEW-EURODRIVE. All this will enable the customers to focus on their core processes, as all necessary maintenance measures can be taken over by people and systems that can be relied on.
