Ekip UP+

ABB Ekip UP+
Capture data that your electrical distribution system is already gathering—and put it to use to increase reliability, lower maintenance costs, and boost efficiency.

Ekip UP+ is a multifunction relay that allows you to monitor, protect and control your electrical distribution assets. Its plug-and-play design and flexibility make it easy to realize the value of the ever-growing flow of device-level data, and its modular design allows users to configure a system that is tailored to their specific requirements.

In the last ten years, more than 50m air circuit breakers and 300m molded case circuit breakers (all brands) have been installed worldwide without advanced features for monitoring or resources optimization. Ekip UP+ is the best way to add these capabilities and leverage device-level data to lower maintenance costs, minimize downtime and take advantage of opportunities like demand response programs.
