The solutions include MicroSCADA X, ABB’s power and automation control solution, with a next-generation human machine interface (HMI) and SDA500, a remote terminal unit (RTU)- based smart control cabinet. An RTU is an electronic device that helps to connect physical equipment in the field with the supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system and helps to automate the distribution of power to the consumer. Together, MicroSCADA X and SDA500 will help improve grid reliability and power quality by reducing outage time and supporting the fast restoration of the entire grid.

“MicroSCADA X is a reliable solution for various applications across diverse industries. The completely new and refreshed human machine interface is intuitive and simple-to-use, enabling quick decision making and enhances safety of people and assets,” said Massimo Danieli, head of the grid automation business line.

MicroSCADA X provides customers a fast and clear overview of the network situation for operational reliability of their power distribution system. It offers a new user experience and a fully cloud-enabled solution that seamlessly scales to portable devices. It provides versatile SCADA and distribution management functionality tightly integrated in the same system, with enhanced navigation and data handling across multiple operating systems.

SDA500 is a pre-engineered and pre-assembled automation system and provides all secondary distribution system functionalities in a single solution. By complying with the highest industry standards and protocols, SDA500 adds a layer of protection to safeguard critical assets against cyberattacks. The RTU500 series, on which the solution is based, will share the same all-new HMI as the MicroSCADA X, providing an intuitive and informative user experience and enabling safe and fast operations. SDA500 also supports third-party substation devices and can be scaled further to meet various work environments.
