ABB showcases intelligent power at the world’s largest gathering of data center expertise – Data Centre World 2017

2017-04-06 - ABB showcased its pioneering solutions for data centers at the world's largest gathering of data center experts at London’s 'Data Centre World' over the 15th - 16th March

Building on ABB’s data center solutions and intelligent power promise, visitors at the ABB stand were able to discover more about ABB’s innovative approach to intelligent grid connection, elastic critical infrastructure, deep component visibility and cloud-based data services.

Products showcased included a world first with the launch of the PCS120 MV UPS, a next-generation medium-voltage UPS for multi-megawatt power protection that is based on the flexible ZISC (Impedance Isolated Static Converter) architecture. Also featured was the launch of the updated Emax 2 smart circuit breaker, plus the introduction of the newly named ABB Ability™ Electrical Distribution Control System and ABB Ability™ Data Centre Automation.

Henrik Palmgren, ABB’s Head of Data Centers Europe said: “Intelligent power for data centers is a combination of reliability, flexibility, safety and security. It was great to share our latest thinking and innovations with the industry at this year’s DCW”.

The products and solutions featured on the stand demonstrated ABB’s full interconnectivity and control, from grid connection to power distribution within whitespace. The stand design, incorporating the new branding principles, further enhanced the interconnectivity message with a series of floor and wall lights to highlight power and communication lines between the products, while a busy VR station allowed customers to take a virtual tour of a data center.

ABB’s presence at the event continued off stand as our experts presented a series of well received keynote seminars. Domagoj Talapko (Business Development Manager for MV UPS) covered medium-voltage power protection for large data centers, Arto Lind (Sales Manager Data Center Solutions) covered better visibility of data center infrastructure, while Michael Goggioli (Center of Excellence Manager) focused on improved energy efficiency with dry-type transformers.

Ciaran Flanagan, ABB’s Global Segment Leader Data Centers said: "Everyone depends more and more on data, computing power and connectivity. We all rely on a data center somewhere and it needs to run efficiently. ABB’s industrial heritage, broad choice of electrification and automation solutions and our commitment to sustainability will help deliver intelligent power to secure the data needs of tomorrow.
