Obama and Merkel inspired by ABB’s ground-breaking digital technology at Hanover Fair


April 25, 2016 Hanover, Germany and Zurich, Switzerland  

 

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel, US President Barack Obama, ABB CEO Ulrich Spiesshofer, ABB Americas Region President Greg Scheu

    The two leaders were shown how ABB's smart sensor can improve the productivity of hundreds of millions of electric motors by connecting them for the first time to cloud-based services.

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel, US President Barack Obama, ABB CEO Ulrich Spiesshofer, ABB Americas Region President Greg Scheu.

    "The smart sensor enables transcontinental industrial digitalization," said Spiesshofer. "The sensor reduces the downtime of motors by up to 70 percent, extends their life span by up to 30 percent, and cuts energy consumption by as much as 10 percent. If all industrial electric motors worldwide were equipped with our smart sensors, the energy savings would be equivalent to the output of 100 large power plants."
