ABB Ability™ Electrical Distribution Control System (EDCS) is an innovative cloud-computing platform designed to monitor, optimize and control the electrical system. The Emax 2 air-insulated circuit breakers have built-in sensing and connectivity, so that data can be collected, stored and analyzed on state-of-the-art cloud-basedcomputer architecture. EDCS enables effective planning through the remote management of power and can deliver up to 30 percent savings on energy bills.

ABB highlights its hospital solutions at Build4Asia. ABB’s offerings for hospitalsinclude smart distribution, electrical safety, energy management, building automation and EV charging.Time is vital for surgeons and patients. While ABB’s OTM, TruOne, ATS and PQF components secure power reliability, ABB AbilityTM solutions are able to reduce downtime or unplanned outagesthrough cloud–based data collection and analysis.

ABB also demonstrates its Furse “Total Solution” to earth lightning strikes, delivering long lasting, reliable protection of a structure, its electronic systems and the personnel within it. It is essential for buildings, especially airportsto control hazardous, potentially life threatening, lightning strikes and transient over voltages. Furse solutions have been deployed successfully in many landmark airports, including Heathrow Airport in the UK.

At the exhibitor’s forum, Andy Cao, Technical Promotion Sales Manager of ABB in China, will share his views on ABB AbilityTM Cloud-based Energy Management. He will describe the current trends in both the market and tech-nology development towards greater digitization and cloud-based connection. He will demonstrate how ABBAbilityTMhas become ABB’s cross-industry digital capability, spreading from device, to edge, to cloud with devices, systems, solutions, services, and a platform that enables our customers to increase productivity and reduce costs.
