ABB has launched its latest release of ABB Ability™ Symphony® Plus distributed control system (DCS) to further support digital transformation for power generation and water industries. With more than 40 years’ experience of total plant automation, the latest version of Symphony Plus will further support customers’ digital journey through a simplified and secure OPC UA connection to the Edge and Cloud, without interfering with core control and automation functionalities.

The new Symphony Plus delivers customers access to digital solutions, such as fleet asset management enabled by Ability Genix Asset Performance Management. It also enables users to access process and alarm data from mobile devices through the Mobile Operations application, allowing them to stay updated to react faster, reduce downtime, and save costs.

Said Joerg Schubert, Head of Product & Portfolio Management, Process Automation Systems, ABB: “In developing the latest release of Symphony Plus, our focus has been on creating innovative technology that gives customers access to an extended range of digital applications. Our ultimate goal is to help society and industry achieve a more productive, sustainable future through safe, secure and seamless operations.”

A newly added SD Series e-Class process controller offers a low-risk, low-disruption retrofit solution for traditional Harmony Rack (HR) installations and brings increased speed, higher capacity, and more functionality to HR systems. For more visit abb.com
