May 31, 2018 - ABB industrial customers will soon be able to receive alerts for predictive maintenance of their facility’s electrical distribution system. ABB is adding new connectivity functions to its ABB Ability Electrical Distribution Control System. ABB’s Electrical Distribution Control System is a cloud-based tool for electrical power systems. Plug-and-play modules provide sensing and a direct connection to the cloud. ABB’s solution is scalable, enabling customers with multi-site operations to manage and supervise remote locations from anywhere. Users can allocate energy consumption and costs to specific assets and the ABB Ability Electrical Distribution Control System helps them optimize power use by receiving data-driven insights and alerts via smartphone, tablet or PC. ABB servicing experts helped develop the new algorithms that will make maintenance smarter. This function aims to optimize service intervals, replacing routine maintenance with intelligent servicing that matches real-world requirements based on the circuit breaker’s real utilization. Factors include the number of mechanical operations; nominal current, overloads and short circuits; and environmental conditions such as humidity, temperature, vibration and corrosion.
