The solution is currently being validated with selected beta customers.
Please note that all the required validation test sites have already been chosen, and ABB cannot accept further requests for testing.
It is expected that the solution will be made available as an upgrade kit for existing motors during the latter part of Q1, 2017 in all markets.
At the same time, selected new ABB and Baldor motors will be made available with the solution factory-fitted, either as an option or as standard.
Once the solution is generally available, ABB plans to gradually:
- increase the breadth and depth of functionality by providing regular software updates (firmware, app, web portal),
- extend the types of new motors that can be ordered with the solution factory-fitted.
