ABB Ability™ Condition Monitoring for switchgear - SWICOM

Reliable asset condition monitoring to reduce operations and maintenance costs.

SWICOM is a monitoring and diagnostic unit which provides mechanical and electrical health status of a fleet lineup. It acquires data communicating with IEC 61850 based protection relays and via sensor bus of additional e.g temperature sensors, and converts the data to diagnostic information.


Key benefits:

  • SWICOM monitors breaker drive, temperatures in critical points on primary circuit and partial discharge  using an indicator
  • Any existing panel can be completely modernized regardless of the age, design and brand, becoming ABB digital compliant.
  • Quick and easy implementation into a truly digital switchgear also when the panel designs are not set  for the application.
  • SWICOM is a core enabler to increase flexibility, efficiency, safety, productivity and reliability


Key features:

  • One unit covers information from whole switchgear lineup.
  • SWICOM can be installed on ABB and non-ABB medium voltage switchgear.
  • Asset management ensured with real time data of the circuit breakers and switchgear.
  • Asset condition visible by using touch HMI and a mobile app for smart devices.
  • SCADA connection through Ethernet TCP/IP possible.
  • Connect SWICOM to MyRemoteCare cloud based dashboard to remotely view asset health status.
