Industrial Automation & Power Excitation

ABB Ability™ Distributed Control System


Freelance is a full-fledged distributed control system that combines the advantages of both worlds – DCS and PLC. It offers the small footprint of a PLC, together with the full functionality of a DCS. The integrated environment simplifies engineering, commissioning, maintenance and fieldbus management. The intuitive operator interface enables easy operation and diagnosis of the entire system.

ABB Ability™ System 800xA

AC 800M Control and I/O seamlessly integrate traditionally isolated Process, Power and Safety devices and systems into the 800xA system environment, thereby extending the reach of the automation system to all plant areas. The result is a simplified, software representation of the plant, from simple on/off-type switches and valves to smart field devices, dedicated control subsystems, variable-speed drives, intelligent switchgear, protection relays (IED) and popular PC-based supervisory systems.
