Panel Builder System Integrator

ABB

February 26, 2018

ABB will unveil two of its latest products on Stand D1130 at this year’s Data Centre World, at ExCel London, March 21-22.

The first product – TruONE – is an automatic transfer switch (ATS) with connectivity and monitoring functions for critical power applications. TruONE is the world’s first true ATS to package all necessary sensors and controllers into a single, easy-to-install device that helps improve protection and makes installation 80 percent faster.

Also making its UK debut is the SMISSLINE TP Power Bar finger-safe, plug-in socket system. Designed to permit hot swapping and hot plugging, it ensures that load-free devices and components can be snapped on and off while the voltage is present.

These innovative products further extend ABB’s range of digitally connected industrial equipment and systems, combining intelligent data with intelligent power. The company has developed a three pillar approach to power and automation focusing on: elastic critical infrastructure that can expand or contract with demand; deep component visibility for simpler automation; and intelligent grid connections to give more energy management choices.

Paul Johnson, Data Segment Leader (UK) for ABB, said: “Data centers have become a fundamental part of life and the technology driving them is moving forward at a rapid pace.
“Future data centers will be able to provide critical information on infrastructure capacity and shift resources as required without any down time. In the energy sector this means intelligent grid connections, buying and selling energy, switching between grid and renewable power sources and contributing to the stability of our power supply.

“Tomorrow’s data centers will be built around components and systems with integrated communications, sensing and intelligence and the launch of TruONE and SMISSLINE TP Power Bar takes us a step closer to realizing that vision.”

ABB will also promote its new Secure Edge Date Center at the event. Developed in collaboration with Hewlett Packard Enterprises and Rittal, it is a plug and play data center, enabling real-time insight and action for small and mid-sized IT infrastructures.

Aimed at minimizing the latency in data processing typically associated with long-distance networks, Secure Edge Data Centers bring new IT capacity closer to the point of data generation. They are specifically designed to further automate the production process in plants where smart technology has already been implemented.

Other ABB products on display at this year’s Data Center World include: MNS Digital (Incorporating Emax2 Air Circuit Breaker, Ekip UP communication module and TVOC-2 Arc Guard optical arc detection system), ABB Ability™ solutions for Data Center Automation and Electrical Distribution Control (EDCS), Unigear Digital medium-voltage switchgear and protection relays, together with CMS-700 branch circuit monitoring system.

Visitors to the stand D1130 will be able to watch videos and live demonstrations of these products as well as experience first-hand all the features of the ABB Connect app on iPads and experience an ABB Data Center Virtual Tour.

A World Without Downtime

Utopias are common in fiction, from Plato’s The Republic to The Federation in Star Trek. For manufacturers, a world without unplanned downtime would be the perfect utopia. The question is, is abolishing unplanned downtime a far-fetched dream, or is it closer than we think? Here, Jonathan Wilkins, marketing director of obsolete industrial equipment supplier, EU Automation shares his vision for a downtime free age.

According to research by Oneserve, machine downtime is costing British manufacturers over £180 billion a year. Unplanned downtime halts production, but can also lead to wasted raw materials or damage to the system itself – amplifying the cost beyond loss of production. Further research conducted by GE Digital found that 70 per cent of companies lack full awareness of when equipment is due for maintenance, upgrade or repair..

Rockwell Automation HMI Improving Operator Efficiency Rockwell Automation has updated its HMI software to equip industrial workers with better information to run and maintain their systems. New features in the FactoryTalk View software version 10.0 include greater access to information, new mobile device support and better cross-software integration to improve productivity. Operators can now use the TrendPro tool in FactoryTalk View Site Edition (SE) software to overlay alarm information on trend data. This feature can help them connect alarm occurrences with data-point values to speed up troubleshooting. They can also use the tool to save and share ad hoc trends with other workers.
