ABB Packages Digital Offerings for IoT Project Optimization
ABB Ability combines more than 180 digital products and services, including the Select I/O, with deep domain expertise and network connectivity. ABB also connects low-voltage electric motors to the Internet of Things (IoT) which are continuously monitored.
“With the release of Select I/O, all of the data points that make up a project, whether hardwired to the control system or part of an integrated electrical substation, are now able to be digitally marshalled into the System 800xA architecture, thus making it possible to execute projects more efficiently by decoupling tasks and becoming more resilient to late changes, delivering projects faster and more cost-effectively,” said Dan Overly, ABB’s head of project management—oil, gas and chemicals.
“The industry has an appetite to keep projects under good control,” noted Peter Terwiesch, president of ABB’s Process Automation Division, during a tour of key products on display at ABB Customer World. “We can bring down the cost of projects, make schedules manageable and reduce risks.” Read the full article here.
