ABB Ability™ EDCS

Architecture

With the ABB Ability Electrical Distribution Control System, ABB introduces another evolutionary step in the electrification business.

ABB Ability™ Electrical Distribution Control System enables the collection of relevant information from ABB de­vices installed in low-voltage power distribution system. 
These devices can be connected, plug & play, to the EDCS cloud-computing plat­form by sharing data either with Emax 2, Ekip UP and TruONE™ (equipped with Ekip Com Hub) or with Ekip E-Hub via Modbus RS-485 or Modbus TCP.

Embedded solution with SACE Emax 2

Emax 2 equipped with the new Ekip Com Hub establishes the cloud connection for the whole switchboard.
This dedicated cartridge-type communication module just needs to be inserted into the terminal box and connected to the internet.

External solution with Ekip E-Hub 2.0

E-Hub 2.0 is an independent IoT gateway which can gather data from field devices as well as con­sumption of water, gas, etc. and connect to the system to ABB AbilityTM Electrical Distribution Control System, the cloud platform. As a result, all the downstream field devices can be monitored from the cloud via ethernet cable, wi-fi or cellular connectivity.

Upgrade solution with Ekip UP

Ekip UP equipped with Ekip Com Hub establishes the cloud connection for a specific feeding line, load or even for the whole distribution system. This dedicated cartridge type communication module just needs to be inserted into the terminal box and connected to the internet using an external router.
