March 26, 2009 -- ABB overcomes flexibility challenges for the solar industry with their PLCs. Solar power plants using solar trackers typically generate 30% more energy than fixed systems and ABB is helping by contributing intelligent automation solutions. ABB's product portfolio includes all key components for operating the solar tracking systems, with the PLC in control. The function of ABB’s PLC is to control the ABB variable speed drives, which orientate the Photo Voltaic modules across two axes in order to achieve maximum exposure to the sun throughout the day. The PLC seeks the input from the sun and tracks its pattern along every day of the year. In case of a windy or snowy day, the PLC and drive place the position of defense (vertical or flat). The ABB PLCs completely redefines the term flexibility by offering a large scope of automation products which can be tailored to your unique needs. Optimized processes, minimized costs, and higher profitability are all offered you a maximum of options for ensuring that crucial bit of extra added value. The wide choice of communication couplers enables you to customize automation systems to suit your own individual requirements. ABB is a leader in power and automation technologies that enable utility and industry customers to improve their performance while lowering environmental impact.
