The engineering tool ABB Ability™ Automation Builder for AC500 PLCs features a Process Control Object library for integration into System 800xA. As it contains pre-tested function blocks for each object as well as matching symbols and faceplates for these, it significantly reduces commissioning – a decisive factor in automation projects.
ABB Testing Laboratories
The ABB Testing Laboratories in Ratingen (Germany) are PEHLA-accredited and have over 60 years of type testing experience of low and medium voltage switchgear and controlgear. They conduct high-power, high-current, high-voltage, mechanical or environmental testing for customers either in the lab, including an assembly and installation service, or in the customer’s facilities.
The high-power laboratory performs short-circuit making and breaking tests, switching capacity and load switching tests, peak and short-time withstand current tests, internal arc fault tests and cable tests. For this purpose, the lab is equipped with a 2800 MVA short-circuit test generator, oil-insulated power transformers, a dry-type power transformer, as well as different reactors, capacitors and resistors, dedicated measurement equipment and more.
