Among the new ABB Ability innovations showcased in Houston are:
在休斯顿展出的ABB Ability创新方案包括:

• ABB Ability System 800xA – One of the solutions provided by ABB Ability builds on the market-leading automation platform System 800xA. Select I/O, a new addition to System 800xA, is a redundant, Ethernet-based, single-channel I/O system. It supports ABB’s next-generation project execution model, Intelligent Projects, which offers a range of efficiency improvements for automation projects. With Select I/O, customers can undertake major projects on a faster schedule with fewer cost overruns. It uses standardized cabinets that allow installers to digitally marshal signals instead of using labor-intensive marshalling panels. Loop checks can be done before the rest of the system is delivered, minimizing the impact of late changes and allowing for project tasks to be executed in parallel.

ABB Ability系统800xA——建立于市场领先的自动化平台系统800xA之上的ABB Ability方案之一。系统800xA 新增的Select I/O是一个基于以太网的冗余单通道I/O系统。它支持ABB的下一代项目执行模型Intelligent Projects,为自动化项目提供一系列的效率改进。通过Select I/O,客户可以更快地承接主要项目,同时减少成本超支。它使用标准化机柜,允许安装人员以数字方式编组信号,而不是使用劳动密集型编组面板。循环检查可以在系统的其余部分交付之前完成,使后期更改的影响最小化,并允许同时执行项目任务。  

• ABB Ability Asset Health Center – Among the first ABB Ability solutions to be launched on Azure is ABB’s next-generation asset performance management solution, Asset Health Center 3.0. Available since January 2017, it uses predictive and prescriptive analytics and customized models to identify and prioritize emerging maintenance needs based on probability of failure and asset criticality.

 ABB Ability资产健康中心——首个在Azure上推出的ABB Ability解决方案是ABB的下一代资产绩效管理解决方案,资产健康中心3.0。它在2017年1月推出,使用预测性和规范性分析和定制模型,基于故障概率和资产重要性识别新出现的维护需求并确定其优先级。 

• ABB Ability Collaborative Operations – This powerful solution, now being brought to scale across industries, helps customers collaborate more effectively. It allows experts to work together across organization boundaries, using the same data and analytics platforms. It focuses on such outcomes as improving productivity, reducing equipment failures, lowering the cost of asset maintenance and transforming overall business performance. This is done while maximizing security and protecting data, people and assets at every level of integration. The solution has been delivering sustainable, long-term results to early adopters.

ABB Ability协作运营——这一强大的解决方案现在可以跨行业应用,帮助客户更有效地合作。它允许专家跨组织边界,使用相同的数据和分析平台一起工作。它专注于提高生产力,减少设备故障,降低资产维护成本和改变整体业务绩效。与此同时,在每一集成层级,最大限度地提高安全性和保护数据、人员和资产。该解决方案为早期采用者提供了可持续的长期结果。

• ABB Ability Digital Substation – ABB’s digital substation provides customers in the utility sector with unmatched control and efficiency. The digital substation incorporates fiber optic current sensors and disconnecting circuit breakers to reduce maintenance requirements and the need for miles of conventional cabling. ABB Ability takes these advances several steps further by combining the latest electrical gear with digital sensors and cloud computing. The result is that grid operators can make decisions based on comprehensive, up-to-the-moment information, while predictive algorithms can improve maintenance practices and asset management.

ABB Ability数字化变电站——ABB的数字化变电站为电力行业客户提供无与伦比的控制和效率。数字化变电站包括光纤电流传感器和断路器,以减少维护需求和数英里长的传统电缆。通过将最新的电子齿轮与数字传感器和云计算相结合,ABB Ability将这些成果进一步推进了几步,使得电网运营商可以根据全面的、最新的信息做出决策,而预测算法可以改进维护实践和资产管理。 

• ABB Ability Smart Sensor – This smart sensor solution, unveiled last year, connects low-voltage electric motors to the Industrial Internet, allowing them to be monitored continuously. The solution, which can be easily affixed to a motor, transmits data on vibration, temperature, loads and power consumption to the cloud. Alerts are generated as soon as any of the parameters deviates from the norm, allowing the operator to take preventive action before the motor malfunctions. Early indications are that the smart sensor solution leads to a reduction in downtime of motors by up to 70 percent and extends their lifespan by up to 30 percent. Acting on the data to optimize the motor’s performance reduces energy consumption by as much as 10 percent.

ABB Ability智能传感器——去年推出的智能传感器解决方案将低压电动机连接到工业互联网,使其能够连续监控。该解决方案可以很容易地固定到电机,将振动、温度、负载和功耗数据传输到云。一旦任何参数偏离标准,就会产生警报,允许操作员在电机故障前采取预防措施。前期指标表明,智能传感器方案可将电机停机时间减少高达70%,并将其使用寿命延长30%。实践数据显示,通过优化电机性能,可以降低能耗多达10%。

The list of innovative and versatile solutions associated with ABB Ability continues, with such offerings as ABB Ability Asset Insight, ABB Ability Ellipse Enterprise Asset Management software, and the ABB Ability Data Center Automation infrastructure management software.
