ABB Ability™ Energy and Asset Manager for non-ABB systems  

  • An all-in-one cloud-based solution offers complete visibility from device to dashboard with instant and unified integration for thousands of third-party devices.
  • With ABB AbilityTM Energy and Asset Manager and Omnio data unification solutions, monitoring, optimizing and controlling the energy consumption and condition of multiple assets is leaner and more efficient for facilities of any size. 

ABB has partnered with industrial data acquisition and unification startup, Omnio, to offer complete monitoring across all low voltage power distribution systems.

Using Omnio data unification technology, data from non-ABB systems can now be immediately interpreted and viewed alongside ABB system data using the ABB AbilityTM Energy and Asset Manager, regardless of the manufacturer or model. Taking this customer first approach, ensures potential integration for thousands of third-party devices including breakers and energy meters.

Mikkel Sørensen, CEO of Omnio comments: “Omnio was founded on the vision of unleashing the environmental and cost efficiencies promised by industrial IoT, by making it fast and easy to connect all devices and get unified data into applications. We are proud to be partnering with ABB, using Omnio Edge to extend the strong capabilities of ABB Ability Energy and Asset Manager to as many devices as possible, bringing the vision to reality.”

The new partnership enables third-party devices to be connected to the Energy and Asset Manager in a quick and easy way, without the need for manual device integration, which can often be complex, lengthy and expensive.

Andrea Temporiti, Head of Digital for ABB Electrification, explains: “When it was first brought to market, the ABB Ability Energy and Asset Manager was exclusively used to collect and translate data from ABB systems. We wanted to offer a solution that would provide customers with greater connectivity and flexibility, without the need to be locked into different IoT vendors.

“In response, we teamed up with Omnio, winners of our Synerleap Startup Challenge 2019, to broaden the capabilities of our Energy and Asset Manager, so that it can translate and communicate data from non-ABB products, enabling a breadth of devices to be covered and connected easily. 

Ultimately, it provides users with a complete overview of their facility, enabling more effective energy savings and the ability to scale systems quickly and easily as the business grows. Unifying both ABB and thousands of non-ABB systems in this single cloud-based data monitoring platform makes optimizing and control of the energy consumption and condition of multiple assets leaner and more efficient for facilities of any size.

The third party systems integration library will be available for customers starting from 15th October 2021 through the provisioning tool in ABB Ability Energy and Asset Manager.

SynerLeap is ABB's innovation development hub for startups which aims to create an ecosystem where ABB can utilize and enable smaller technology companies to grow and expand in areas including industrial digitalization.
