ABB Ability™ Performance Optimization for LV drives

Identifies, categorizes and prioritizes opportunities to optimize low-voltage drives, as well as associated equipment and processes.

ABB Ability™ Performance Optimization for LV drives uses automated data collection and analysis to identify, categorize and prioritize issues, reducing the risk of drive failure.

It identifies performance issues before they can escalate through data collection, issue identification, information presentation and continuous monitoring.

Configurable Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) compare existing drive conditions to pre-established thresholds, so customers and ABB service personnel can easily see where improvements may be made.

  • Biannual analysis by ABB experts to identify issues
  • Configurable alerts via email or text
  • On-site or remote access for customer and ABB service
  • Statistical analysis of drives data
  • Remote diagnosis and proactive support from ABB experts
  • Consolidation and long-term storage of drive data
  • Multiple drive monitoring in the same network
  • Automated analysis of faults and alarms
  • Continuous performance monitoring
  • Secure communications
  • Better informed decision-making
  • Faster problem identification
  • Improved performance
  • Long-term drive health
  • Increased productivity
  • Lower risk of failure
  • Higher availability
  • Greater efficiency
  • Repair avoidance
  • Reduced costs

Performance Optimization for LV drives follows a three-step methodology—Diagnose, Implement and Sustain—to help ensure low-voltage drives performance.

Step 1: Diagnose

The service automatically collects electrical, temperature and motion data from each drive/motor combination, evaluates extended periods of data, compares this data against pre-established thresholds, and calculates Key Performance Indicators to give a visual representation of areas that may require mitigating action.

Step 2: Implement

Based on this analysis, an implementation plan can be developed by ABB and customer personnel through a collaborative review. After a plan has been agreed, improvements can be delivered according to customer needs.

Step 3: Sustain

Performance Optimization for LV drives provides 24/7 monitoring capabilities to sustain benefits achieved after recommended changes are implemented. If a KPI exceeds a pre-established threshold, a notification can be sent automatically to customer or ABB personnel via email or text message, so that fast action may be taken.

Sustaining Improvement

Available as a subscription service, Performance Optimization for LV drives offers solid financial value by identifying areas of improvement and providing remote-enabled access to ABB advanced service expertise.
