Pump monitoring (KSB-Guard)

Pump Monitoring from Specialists

KSB Guard: Pump monitoring as a digital solution

Prevent malfunctions and downtimes using the cloud-based monitoring system KSB Guard: helping you keep track of your pumps at all times.

Comprehensive monitoring of your pumps – any time, anywhere

On the one hand, smooth running is essential for your system. But on the other, you want to minimise outlay for system monitoring and maintenance. KSB Guard lets you achieve both. Keep an eye on all of your pumps’ data without needing to be on site.

KSB Guard monitors the vibration and temperature values of your pump at regular intervals and notifies you immediately of any deviations. This allows you to fix problems before more substantial damage occurs. KSB Guard also helps you schedule maintenance jobs based on specific measurement data.

What is more, KSB Guard saves resources right from its installation: the sensor unit is easy to install and pumps are quickly registered.
