“Make Power Smart” consists of various modules with special functions: Gathering information on the spot, identifying and selecting the best belt according to the requirements, measuring drive geometry such as center distance, pulley diameter and wrap angle, checking drive alignment, calculating drive systems, and checking and setting the correct tension, which is analyzed by the smartphone’s built-in microphone. This allows the user to make adjustments on their own in no time, instead of having an external technician for troubleshooting.
