ABB Ability™ Electrification Monitoring and Control ZEE600

Unlocking digitalization and integration in electrification process

The ABB Ability™ Electrification Monitoring and Control for distribution networks, ZEE600 fulfills the role of a seamless integrator of diverse devices such as ABB and 3rd party make protection relays, meters, substation equipment condition monitoring units, Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) and Remote Terminal Units (RTUs), deployed in digital electrification solutions.

In doing so, it harnesses their real-time, near-real time and diagnostics data to facilitate digitalization objectives set by the customer across diverse segment domains.

While fully supporting predominant communication standards deployed are IEC 61850, IEC 60870-5 and Modbus-TCP across electrification automation systems across the world, the ZEE600 also supports standards like DNP, Profinet, Profibus and other open or proprietary protocols. 

It also supports IEC 62349 Parallel-Redundancy Protocol (PRP) to handle and resolve identical communication messages from two separate LAN networks.
The ZEE600 SoftPLC enables execution of near-real time or non-real time applications, such as interlock checks or calculations, and communicating the calculated data to target systems.

It helps realize system integration in Electrification Control System (ECS) solutions and can be deployed in a mix of brownfield and greenfield installations in primary and secondary distribution substations across utilities, industries, infrastructure and renewable segments.
