Innovation highlights & Inspired solutions from ABBadmin
ABB is the market leader in Industrial Automation in the world.
4.ABB Ability Genix Datalyzer for continuous emission monitoring:
Strict environmental regulations and demanding analyzer availability requirements for emissions monitoring can lead to higher costs in industries such as cement, waste management and others. Enter ABB to provide customers with greater transparency and predictability for Continuous Emission Monitoring (CEM) with ABB Ability Genix Datalyzer- ABB cloud-hosted data analytics platform for fleet-wide asset health monitoring.
How does the Datalyzer accomplish this? In the netwok architecture, multiple analyzers are connected to an edge device(MicroPC) that comprises CPM+ and Genix Edgebase; CPM+ and SW communicate with the analyzers and captures the data with the edgebase securely communicates the analyzer data to the cloud. This process Allows the contextual integration of operational technology(OT) data with Information technology(IT) data and engineering technology (ET) data.
5. ABB unmasks the future of customized automotive painting with PixelPaint:
Applying a two-tone or customized design onto bodywork is a time-and labor-intensive process that requires the vehicle to be put through the painting line twice: once for the first layer and then, after the appropriate areas have been masked off, again for the second color. The task of masking and demasking the bodywork alone is laborious. And with only 70 to 80 percent of the paint going where it should, significant quantities of paint are wasted.
ABB’s PixelPaint overcomes these issues, providing faster, highly accurate solution for customized painting. With reduced volatile organic compound(VOC) and CO2 emissions, PixelPaint improves environmental performance and long term sustainability too.
ABB’s PixelPaint robotic non-overspray technology for the automotive industry won the 2021 Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Robotics & Automation(IERA) Award for Outstanding Achievements in Commercializing Innovative Robot and Automation Technology.
6.Mining Cities’ information pipelines:
By 2030 , demand for fresh water is expected to exceed to exceed current sustainable supplies by 40 percent. Nevertheless, much can be done to reverse this trend. For instance, the UN estimates that up to 120 billion cubic meters of water could be saved in urban centers simply by reducing leaks. ABB’s AquaMaster4 Mobile comms can help. One of the world’s first Internet connected flow measurement products and one of the world’s first electromagnetic flowmeters with 4G LTE Cat.1/narrowband Iot, the AquaMaster4 can reduce operational expenses and waste while allowing for better control of supply and demand.
For instance , the flowmeter’s built-in logger and cellular engine provide flexibility and allow interrogation of high resolution data, thus helping operators tailors resources to specific periods of interest. In addition, thanks to the fact that the AquaMaster4 offers the widest flow range(up to R1000) and highest accuracy (up to +_0.2 percent of reading +_0.5 mm/s) on the market, operators can rely on it to deliver bills that accurately reflect actual consumption, not estimates-and to discover leaks.
at an early stage. Furthermore, the AquaMaster4 is the transmitter-equipped flowmeter to feature a contactless interface that uses the Near Field Communication(NFC) standard, which allows offline configuration and updates.
