Efficient network operations with ABB Ability System 800xA Networks 

Modern DCS heavily depend on reliable, robust and secure networks. Network equipment enables clients to communicate with servers and controllers to obtain information from the field. 

In addition to the traditional Ethernet communications from operator workstations to controllers, there's an increase in Ethernet-based fieldbus networks to communicate to field equipment.  Fieldbus protocols such as PROFINET, IEC 61850, Ethernet/IP and MODBUS TCP/IP are being used to communicate to lower level PLCs, smart transmitters, valve actuators, and even electrical equipment. Using fieldbus solutions allows for not only reduced wiring and installation costs, but they allow for more diagnostic information to be brought back in. 

The products have the capability to define a default ABB configuration to have teams focus on plant production rather than becoming experts on technology like networks and virtual machines.  

Enhanced wired network control, monitoring & communication

ABB’s portfolio of wired network equipment includes switches and modular transceivers. The equipment is pre-configured for the use with 800xA, which is one of the major benefits of choosing 800xA-tailored network devices.  

The result is a reliable and highly robust network for all sorts of plant requirements. 

The 800xA Networks switch portfolio includes:

  • 19 port rack-mounted switch
  • 19 port DIN-mounted switch
  • 10 port DIN-mounted switch
  • 5 port DIN-mounted lightly managed switches

New! The portfolio of wired networks equipment has been extended with an entirely new range of RNRP industrial routers/firewalls. They are specifically developed for use in System 800xA networks using the Redundant Network Routing Protocol (RNRP).

These routers/firewalls are included in the 800xA Networks portfolio:

  • 11 port DIN-mounted RNRP router/firewall (NE870)
  • 3 port DIN-mounted RNRP router/firewall (NE871)
 

Enhanced wireless network control, monitoring & communication

A distributed wireless network deployment includes mobile equipment and possibilities for remote operations. Wireless networks are an efficient way to deploy distributed network topologies. ABB’s wireless networks integrate seamlessly in your control system.

800xA Tropos wireless mesh routers deliver robust IP networks for industrial automation applications. The mesh technology and the Tropos Predictive Wireless Routing Protocol (PWRP) creates a architecture with no single point of failures. Gateway routers are connected to the wired Ethernet backhaul and node routers create a wireless mesh network.
