PowerView Monitoring System

Powerview Monitoring System

Understanding load profiles is the key to proactively managing your data center distribution system and avoiding unnecessary downtime. The innovative design of the PowerView module provides the flexibility to support both basic metering and monitoring requirements, as well as more comprehensive system monitoring requirements through two offering tiers, PowerView Core and PowerView Pro.

ABB’s PowerView Core provides customized circuit monitoring software that is configurable with multiple levels of warnings to provides managers with the ability to implement more urgent processes at different thresholds to avoid load drops. 

ABB’s PowerView Pro monitoring system offers advanced analytics such as trending, waveform capture, and predictive maintenance notifications via integration with the ABB Ability™ EDCS cloud.
