InSite energy management system

Taking scalability, flexibility & energy efficiency to the next level

The InSite energy management system offers smart energy and load management to improve energy efficiency in both sub and final distribution.

Through the control unit, data is gathered from the field devices, that can then be accessed via the InSite web server, the ABB Ability™ Energy Manager or any 3rd party application.

  • Complete solution to optimize energy usage and to achieve full load management
  • Adapt the system to any application needs by mounting the plug-in expansion modules onto the compact control unit SCU200*
  • Easily integrate the open system with EV chargers, PV systems, heat pumps, etc.


* Commercial availability: Q1 2023

Discover the range


Residential & small commercial applications
Control Unit SCU200*
  • Remote monitoring of a wide range of connected devices, including breakers, meters, current sensors but also EV chargers or heat pumps
  • Equipped with 1 WiFi port and 3 serial ports (Ethernet RJ45, RS485 for Modbus RTU, INS flat cable)
  • For secure data transmission, Modbus RTU, TCP, REST API, WiFi, and Websocket protocols are embedded; cyber security for internet use is provided by a crypto engine, secure boot, and secure storage
Plug-in expansion modules*
  • Tool-free mounting of up to 5 expansion modules on the SCU200 control unit
  • Energy Meter module measures the electrical values via the connected split-core current transformers
  • Wireless Modbus enables data collection from up to 16 field devices such as electricity, gas or water meters
  • The complete InSite system is powered by the power supply module, which converts the current from 240 VAC to 24 VDC
Smart Aux/ Signaling device*

The Smart Aux/Signaling devices can be connected using the INS flat cable for connecting sensors as a plug-and-play connection and are compatible with most of ABB's MCB and RCD ranges.

The InSite web server allows remote access to data transmitted of the field devices, as well as a step-by-step installation wizard, a cost calculation feature, and automated actions to optimize the prioritization of loads for the most efficient use of energy.

* Commercial availability: Q1 2023

Large commercial & Industrial applications
Control Unit SCU100
  • Collects measurement data from up to 16 energy and power meters, in addition to 96 current sensors and digital sensors, simultaneously
  • Remote monitoring of the system thanks to a digital communication that supports different protocols (Modbus RTU, TCP or SNMP v1, v2 and encrypted v3)
  • 2 interfaces guarantee straightforward integration into any IT infrastructure: LAN (TCP/IP or Modbus TCP) and RS485 (Modbus RTU)
Digital Input and Output modules

Digital I/O modules can read contact status, activate or deactivate lines and collect utilities’ consumptions. The range consists of 3 devices to adapt to quantity and type of installed products:

  • Input Module DM11
  • Output Module DM00
  • Input/Output Module DM10

DM11, DM00 and DM10 can be connected to System pro M compact® accessories of MCBs and RCDs, but also to other DIN Rail products with a digital input or output and to pulse meters (e.g . water , gas meters).

Access several pre-configured pages via the InSite web server. These allow you to monitor, compare and structure your real-time and historical data. Also, automatic actions can be set to react promptly to selected events.
