Control Room
Server Room
Featuring System 800xA, our flagship extended automation platform, the control room showcases ABB's unique capability to seamlessly consolidate DCS and PLC systems of earlier generations and multiple vendors.

In the Control Room you find 800xA, with its Extended Operator Workplace EOW-x3 HMI and an Engineering station running Control Builder software. The meeting table and the Collaboration Table provide an excellent environment to demonstrate and discuss 800xA integration possibilities. The control room uses ABB Busch-Jaeger building automation control as well as ABB KNX integrations for building automation.
The server room features all hardware, both ABB and third party, seamlessly integrated through System 800xA, showcasing ABB's unqiue capabilities of true DCS HMI consolidation.

Besides the 800xA controller AC 800M and Freelance, several heritage DCS are present; Symphony DCI System Six and Infi 90, Advant Controller 460, Advant Controller 450 with S100 I/O and S400 I/O along with an AC500 PLC.

Integration with third party DCS's is demonstrated with Siemens PCS7 S7-400 and S7-300, Emerson Delta V, Provox I/O and a RS3 I/O replacement, GE Fanuc, Foxboro I/A, Yokogawa Centum 3000, a Schneider controller and Honeywell TDC3000 and Experion.

Live demo system for remote access on-line

With the remote demo capabilities built in the DCS Collaboration Arena, it is possible to showcase the technologies and features remotely. 

Using only a web browser, the arenas different process screens including CCTV is shared in real time, giving an almost complete user experience. The sharing technology, Cisco WebEx, works excellent in low bandwidth conditions too, allowing several attendants from different locations to join simultaneously. 
For example, an engineer from Marseille can demo with a host from Sweden and participants from the US.

If you don’t have the possibility to come to Marseille and the DCS Collaboration Arena, using the Remote online demo is by far the best alternative.
