ABB Ability™ - Electrical Distribution Control System

cloud-computing - electrical-system - optimising - monitoring - controlling

The ABB Ability™ Electrical Distribution Control System is an innovative cloud-computing platform designed to monitor, optimise and control the electrical system.

It is built on a state-of-the-art cloud architecture that collects, processes and stores data. It also provides access on a multi-site level, simultaneously monitoring and comparing the performance of different facilities.

An intuitive web app interface means the ABB Ability™ Electrical Distribution Control System can assist anytime and anywhere via smartphone, tablet or personal computer.


Stay up to date on the information most relevant to the facility and understand power loads at a glance – from the main feeder all the way down to the lowest branch of the electrical system.


Comprehensive data collection, at single or multiple sites, makes taking the right decisions easier than ever:

  • Collect & export data & historical trend analysis with on-demand queries or scheduled automatic reports
  • File service operations digitally, leveraging the power of the data for predictive maintenance strategies
  • Analytics simplify & enhance power factor compensation analysis, energy management & cost allocation


Power Controller feature makes load management simple, accurate and remote by combining the ABB Ability™ Electrical Distribution Control System and Emax 2 Power Manager.

  • Remotely set the power demand they want to target with a weekly, daily or hourly resolution
  • Depending on the specific needs & application, user can choose between two configurations to connect the system to the ABB Ability™ Electrical Distribution Control System: embedded or external
  • With just a cartridge-type module, the innovative Ekip Com upgrades the Emax 2 circuit breaker or Ekip UP digital units. Alternatively, the Ekip E-Hub module can be mounted on the DIN-rail
  • Intuitive graphic interface guides users through each task, presenting relevant information, derived from thousands of parameters collected from the field
  • Plug & play devices can be connected to include air circuit breakers, moulded case circuit breakers, miniature circuit breakers, metering devices, switches & fuse gears, arc-guard devices & soft starters


Supervise through algorithms the operating conditions of the system and predict the status in order to move toward need-based maintenance and actions.
