ABB’s new SDe Series to boost plant reliability and efficiency with seamless automation system upgrade

  • Offering innovation with continuity, ABB Ability™ Symphony® Plus SDe Series modernizes traditional process control system installations with minimal risk and disruption to plants
  • Control system upgrades are key to futureproofing, securing and optimizing plant operations across industries
  • Plant managers can plan for stepwise system upgrades reusing existing cabinets, field wiring, termination units and cabling

ABB has launched the ABB Ability Symphony Plus SDe Series, a portfolio of hardware products that help modernize existing process control system installations with minimal risk and disruption to plant operations. The new series enables plant operators in industries such as power, water, oil & gas, pharmaceuticals and pulp & paper to upgrade installed control systems to the latest technologies, driving efficiency and productivity improvements.

Offering innovation with continuity, the new SDe Series addresses one of the biggest challenges for control system owners: upgrading existing infrastructure without disrupting operations. SDe solutions enable stepwise evolution with minimal impact by preserving field wiring, termination units and module cabling, helping plant owners protect their Symphony Harmony and INFI 90 investments as process controllers, I/O modules and automation technology evolve.

“ABB’s modular approach to multi-year evolution facilitates strategic upgrades over a realistic, cost-effective timeframe, enhancing operational productivity and sustainability for plant managers,” said Stefan Basenach, Senior Vice President, Process Automation Technology, ABB. “With the new SDe Series, we are helping customers across industries ensure their plants continue to meet regulatory requirements while increasing efficiency and adapting to changing markets.”

Providing seamless interconnections with smart field and electrical devices, as well as higher-level applications, the rugged control and I/O products of the SDe Series offer an extreme operating temperature range and a scalable architecture within a compact, modular footprint. Additionally, the series features sustainability improvements such as reduced power consumption and the use of standards-based technology that reduces plant owners’ total cost of ownership.
