ABB Ability Energy & Asset Manager

Hit your sustainability and efficiency targets.

ABB Ability™ Energy Manager is the digital solution to monitor and optimize your energy consumption and CO2 footprint, giving you the chance to make faster and better decisions based on data insights.

Energy management tool for small to large size sites, including industry-specific features (Buildings, Data centers, etc…)

Innovative cloud-based or on-premise platform and ready-to-use solution thanks to a Software-as-a-Service business model and pre-engineered functionalities which ensure on-site commissioning in less than 1 day

Cost-efficient solution with add-on and premium services (including an upgrade to ABB Ability™ Energy and Asset Manager)

How it works

ABB Ability Energy and Asset Manager connects to the cloud using low-voltage distribution panels with circuit breakers, relays, metering devices, transfer switches and other equipment. Depending on the requirements of the application, the devices can be connected via Modbus RTU or TCP, sending data to the cloud via one of two ways:

Embedded solution with Ekip Com Hub
  • A SACE® Emax 2 breaker, Ekip UP+ monitoring and control device, or TruONE™ ATS equipped with the new Ekip Com Hub establishes the cloud connection for the whole switchboard.

  • This dedicated cartridge-type communication module just needs to be inserted into the terminal box and connected to the internet.
     

External solution with ABB Ability™ Edge Industrial gateway
  • The ABB Ability™ Edge Industrial gateway module can be mounted on DIN rail to collect data throughout the system.

  • Connect sensors to measure environmental parameters (temperature, water, gas) via both analog and digital I/O.

  • ABB Ability™ Edge Industrial gateway has enhanced connectivity functionalities, providing Wi-Fi or 3G/4G connectivity.
