Accelerating digital transformation

ABB Ability™ Symphony® Plus is accelerating digital transformation through a secure OPC UA connection to the Edge and Cloud without disrupting the core.

Symphony® Plus users can now access digital solutions such as fleet asset management enabled by ABB Ability™ Genix Asset Performance Management and ABB Mobile Operations application which enables users to access process and alarm data from their personal devices.

Accessing data anywhere anytime

The mobile workforce can now access critical data from anywhere at any time with HTML5 web-based operation and engineering applications running on the mobile device of choice.

This promotes collaboration between subject matter experts, supervisors and managers resulting in improved uptime and peak performance.

Flexible field device management has also been enabled with ABB Field Information Manager (FIM) that makes the configuration, commissioning, diagnostics and maintenance of fieldbus instruments easier and quicker than before.

Evolution without obsolescence, innovation with continuity

The new Symphony® Plus SD Series e-Class (SDev) process controller offers a low-risk, low-disruption evolution solution for traditional Harmony Rack (HR) installations.

Fitting in existing Module Mounting Units (MMU), the SDev controller is a Form-Fit-Function replacement for existing rack controllers. It delivers increased speed, higher capacity, and more functionalities to HR systems, delivering innovation with continuity and enabling plant-wide digitalization while minimizing impact to process operations and system infrastructure.
