What is KSB Guard?

KSB Guard is a smart solution for monitoring various pump populations. 
The solution comprises easy-to-install, economically priced sensors and a software connected to the Cloud. The data is transmitted between the machinery and the Cloud via the mobile phone network and does not depend on specific infrastructure.

What can I use it for? 

It allows you to live monitor the status data for most of your pumps, irregardless of manufacturers. This helps you optimise your maintenance strategies, detect any anomalies at an early stage and prevent damage as well as failures.

What does KSB Guard do to help?    

Via temperature and vibration sensors KSB Guard checks whether your pump is running properly. It displays the measured data in the KSB Guard web portal or app. It is a smart solution that alerts you when status data exceed the limit you have set. Even in busy times, you can simply cast a glance at the web portal or app. In this way you will always be informed about the condition of your pump population and can optimise operation and maintenance.

How do I install the hardware?

You can mount the gateway on the wall, for example. You will need to connect it to the power supply. Fit the sensor unit using its magnetic connection and adhesive. When the sensor unit has been fastened in place, connect it to the transmission and battery unit with a cable and activate it. When the unit is activated, you can assign your machinery in the web portal or app. 

Installation and commissioning are straightforward: you can easily carry them out yourself.                                                                                             

Additional Note : It is important to check that a strong mobile network signal is present at the gateway (this is indicated by the LEDs on the gateway).
