O’Neill Industrial has signed a Channel Partner Agreement with Analog Devices, Inc (ADI).  Through the agreement, O’Neill Industrial will drive sales and enhance support initiatives for ADI OtoSense SMS, Analog Devices’ Predictive Maintenance Smart Motor Sensor (SMS), in Ireland and Northern Ireland.  ADI OtoSense SMS is an AI-based, full turnkey hardware and software solution for condition-based monitoring (CbM) of electric motors.

As companies strive to optimise their manufacturing and production operations, they are seeking better control and monitoring of various assets including motors. ADI OtoSense SMS detects anomalies and defects in motors, enabling the ability to forecast maintenance cycles and avoid unplanned downtime. As a result, companies can increase machinery productivity, reduce downtime and maintenance costs, and extend asset lifecycles.

Speaking about the agreement, Kevin Carlin, Vice President of OtoSense AI at Analog Devices, said, “Leading organisations are adopting Industry 4.0 technologies and elevating asset management as a core component of their operational strategy. Our collaboration with O’Neill Industrial means we can meet the demands of customers on the ground faster.”

O’Neill Industrial will leverage its relationship with major manufacturers in Ireland as well as its staff of sales and support personnel across the country to accelerate the adoption of the ADI OtoSense SMS.

Austin O’Neill of O’Neill Industrial explains the rationale for entering this market: “With fifty years’ experience in servicing the Irish Industrial market with cutting-edge equipment, we are ideally positioned to exploit the rapidly growing demand for IOT devices such as the Smart Motor Sensor for condition-based monitoring of electric motors. As industry harnesses the power of Industry 4.0, we look forward to bringing this crucial technological development to industry,” he said.
