ABB began connecting its robots to advanced services in 2007, and today has delivered 40,000 robots with embedded connectivity, with some 7,000 connected robots to the ABB Ability Connected Services platform in more than 750 customer sites in 40 countries.
All ABB robots come ready to be connected to ABB Ability Connected Services, wirelessly or hard wired, unlocking a world of possibilities in predictive, proactive and immediate support at your fingertips anytime, and any place.
The ABB Ability Connected Services suite consists of five services: Condition Monitoring & Diagnostics, Backup Management, Remote Access, Fleet Assessment, and Asset Optimization. ABB Ability Connected Services can be tailored via ABB’s flexible Robot Care service agreements to meet the unique needs of your plant.
ABB Ability Connected Services is delivered to you via the MyRobot web application with its alarm dashboard, providing customers and ABB Service with actionable information through a single intuitive user interface at your fingertips any time, and any place.
