  • Integrated Electrical and Automation Systems

    As process plants get larger and more complex, automation systems must handle an ever-increasing number of signals. At the same time, the number of electric consumers increases, making an electrical control system essential. The electrical control system is an automation system in itself, providing an interface between the process control and the electric consumers and actuators. ABB takes responsibility for all these systems and their integration. By letting ABB handle the integration and all the interfaces, customers benefit from faster project execution, reduced re-engineering, higher quality and higher operational efficiency.

  • Safety Systems – From "Add-On" to Integral Process

    Despite increased dependence on ever more powerful process–control and safety systems, the human aspect remains an integral part of any plant's operation. ABB believes that the safety system of the future is no longer an "add–on," that is designed and supplied separately from the rest of the plant or process, but an integral part of it.

  • Diverse Redundancy Used to Achieve Higher Safety Integrity

    Diverse Redundancy is being used in SIS technology to achieve higher safety integrity. Diverse redundancy refers to the use of two or more different systems, which are built using different components, algorithms, electronics, design methodology etc. to perform the same task. One benefit of diverse redundancy is the increased capabilities to reduce common mode and systematic failures such as those caused by design flaws.
