February 8, 2019 – ABB and Intel signed a formal agreement to collaborate on the marketing and selling of distribution automation systems and products for protection and control in utility and industrial applications. At the core of the agreement is ABB Ability smart substation control and protection for electrical systems, SSC600, powered by Intel® Xeon® processors.
SSC600 centralizes all protection and control functionality in a single, IEC 61850-compliant device at the substation level to reduce network complexity and support optimal, lifelong asset management for the digital substation. It helps utilities make the change to a more digital environment, allowing protection and control of a wide variety of applicationsin real time.
ABB is a global manufacturer of medium-voltage protection and control devices that aligns with Intel’s virtualization and centralization strategy for distribution networks. The aim of the strategy is a single, centralized, software-driven device with extensive application coverage.
ABB is constantly creating new ways to advance protection and control technology for medium-voltage distribution systems. SSC600 builds on ABB’s technological foundation manifested in the Relion protection and control family.
