Jargon buster

Crack the ABB code

Working together and sharing knowledge is essential for our success.


As a world leader in power and automation technologies, ABB is active across many disciplines and businesses, with the result that technical jargon is widely used throughout the company. For new employees in particular, the sooner you understand the jargon and can interact with your colleagues, the more effective you will be at achieving your own and the company's objectives.

To give you a head start, ABB has compiled a jargon buster, which explains the most commonly used terms in our wide variety of businesses and gives you insights into our main technology areas.

Boost your knowledge by familiarizing yourself with our terminology. It will help you understand our products and the work we do, and contribute to successful interaction with your colleagues.

Expand your knowledge and your horizons with ABB.
