Extensions, upgrades and retrofits

ABB offers extensions, upgrades and retrofits to extend the lifetime of its power converters and inverters.

Upgrades

Upgrades for ABB converters and inverters are designed for improving the performance and extending both the functionality and the lifetime of the equipment. Upgrade services comprise both hardware and software updates.

Retrofits

Instead of replacing an entire converter or converter system, it is often more economical to modernize the old installation by reusing all relevant parts of the original equipment and purchasing new where necessary. Retrofitting is typically carried out during planned production shutdowns, without causing extra production downtime.

According to ABB's life cycle management model, it is recommended that a converter/inverter be modernized or replaced at the end of its life cycle’s classic phase.
