AI Tool Uses Chatbot to Help Engineers With Electromechanical Repairs

AI Tool Uses Chatbot to Help Engineers With Electromechanical Repairs
11 January 2024
 

A new AI-powered tool to support engineers when repairing hazardous area motors is being developed in the UK.

Innovate UK, The Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades (AEMT) and British Standards Institute (BSI) are collaborating to produce the new technology, where engineers repairing rotating electrical equipment will be able to clarify technical requirements through a chatbot-style interface. 

The tool will initially cover ten versions of four different BS EN Hazardous Area standards and is due to be tested by AEMT members and rolled-out from Q2 2024. 

 

Why is this Needed?

 

Within the BS EN and IEC 60079 series of standards, various technical standards govern, among other things, the repair, overhaul, reclamation, installation, maintenance, and inspection, plus the design, testing and marking of equipment designed for use in explosive atmospheres. Navigating and interpreting this complex range of standards can be time-consuming and open to error. 

In addition, these standards are reviewed and updated periodically; however, it can be a challenge to ensure the right standard is used in conjunction with the age of the equipment being repaired.
