The first and easiest step towards digitalising your plant
The fourth industrial revolution is in full swing. Increasing digitalisation and networking of products, value creation chains and business models offers many industrial companies attractive opportunities. At the same time, a lot of companies are not sure how and where to start digitalising their systems. And yet it can be so simple: with KSB Guard.
What is KSB Guard?
KSB Guard is your quick and easy introduction to the world of KSB smart services. KSB Guard can be quickly attached to your pumps and immediately helps you to make your system more reliable and reduce your operating costs.
KSB Guard is KSB’s intelligent pump monitoring system comprising sensors and a cloud application which enables you to keep a mobile eye on the performance and status data of your pumps at all times.
The cloud-based solution monitors all connected pumps in parallel and immediately notifies you of any irregularities. How to detect faults and anomalies faster than ever before while maintaining a solid database for further optimisation measures – system-wide.

More transparency thanks to digitalisation. More efficiency thanks to transparency.
The digitalised recording of performance and status parameters for your pumps thanks to a smart service such as KSB Guard offers you a whole new overview of your system – and with it a whole host of benefits.
KSB Guard is a simple way to ensure that your system profits from one of digitalisation’s greatest benefits: transparency. This transparency triggers a chain reaction which stands to significantly increase the efficiency of your system.
Better maintenance strategies
With digital monitoring, you gain access to detailed information on the efficiency and overall condition of your pump, enabling you to optimise your pump maintenance tactics in a targeted fashion.
Less frequent and more predictable downtimes
Better maintenance strategies allow you to take care of the procurement of spare parts and other maintenance services in good time. This helps you to predict and reduce downtime at your plant.
Reduced operating costs
The less downtime your system experiences, the more efficiently it will operate – and the lower your operating costs will be.
An overview of the system
- Sensor unit: A vibration sensor and a temperature sensor record pump data directly at the pump.
- Transmission and battery unit: Supplies power to the sensor unit and transfers measurement data to the gateway.
- Gateway: Transfers data via the mobile phone network to the KSB Cloud while maintaining the highest security standards.
- Web portal and app: Pump data and additional pump parameters can be evaluated conveniently and easily in the app or accessed via a computer.
Taking the first step has never been easier.
You can carry out the 4-step installation yourself or have it performed by a KSB expert:
Plan your maintenance efficiently
KSB Guard allows you to plan for maintenance jobs based on specific measurement data. This, in turn, allows you to use your resources where they really are required. Documenting and tracking work on a pump takes just a few clicks.
- Helps avoid unnecessary maintenance
- Improves availability as irregularities are detected
- Documents previous work to facilitate future inspections
The KSB Guard data interface
KSB Guard allows you to access the measured data, information and notifications via a standardised REST API data interface. This data can be easily integrated into your existing system and visualised, independently of the app or web portal. You can also combine the data collected by KSB Guard with other data and save it wherever you want – your system, your data.
