ABB launches range of fully-connected network analysers
Technology leader ABB has launched its first Bluetooth-equipped network analysers, for accurate electrical measuring and power monitoring of all energy assets for the Australian marketplace.
The new M4M empowers digital transformation of buildings by leveraging ABB’s energy and asset management solutions.
As customers look to increase productivity and reduce energy consumption, ABB has developed its new M4M range of fully connected network analysers for power quality analysis and energy monitoring.
M4M network analysers gather information for the energy distribution system and connect them to the unique ABB Ability Electrical Distribution Control System, a cloud-based platform that gives users immediate access to actionable data on energy consumption and on-site power generation trends.
Oliver Iltisberger, managing director of ABB’s Smart Buildings business line says, “ABB has been at the forefront of developing scalable and cloud-based solutions that offer customers a completely new dimension in energy and asset management. With its cloud-enabled features and intuitive access to data, the new M4M has enhanced and extended our digital energy monitoring solutions, designed to improve performance and reduce impact on the environment.”
With the intuitive interface for easy device configuration and quick visualisation of data, users can reduce installation and commissioning time by up to 40 percent. Completely removable terminals and a mobile app also deliver faster commissioning. Moreover, M4M boasts a comprehensive range of accurate information for energy efficiency evaluations, from basic electrical parameters to advanced power quality KPIs, displayed in waveform or as graphs, that improve plant efficiency and allow for effective troubleshooting of power quality issues.
The range is available in two different families: M4M 20 and M4M 30 including touchscreen. Both are equipped with full communication protocol options, while the versions compatible with Rogowski coils allow for integration in any new or existing installation and reduce cabling time by up to 70 percent.
