ABB launches a scalable, digital application for metals

12 September 2019

ABB has launched a scalable, digital application that gives metals producers a complete overview of their production assets’ health, helping to avoid excess maintenance, prevent unnecessary exposure to hazardous areas and speed up repairs.

The solution – ABB Ability™ Asset Vista Condition Monitoring for metals – quickly gathers previously disparate data from a variety of production equipment such as motors, switchgears, gearboxes, valves, switches, and sensors. The data is then presented via user-friendly dashboards to operations, automation and maintenance personnel, ensuring smooth joint working and integration. Highly scalable, it is particularly quick and easy to implement at plants already using a wide range of distributed control systems, including ABB’s ABB Ability™ System 800xA.

Digital application for metals

ABB Ability™ Asset Vista Condition Monitoring works on open communication protocols like OPC and Modbus and is easily integrated into a range of third-party control systems. Combining Asset Vista with the plant’s maintenance management improves equipment reliability, thereby reducing maintenance and operational costs, avoiding unplanned shutdowns and increasing productivity.
