ABB Data Analytics Optimize Site Monitoring Tools

As the world focuses on environment sustainability, industries are working to increase agility and reliability of real-time emissions monitoring. ABB has reinforced its data analytics platform to stringently monitor emissions and overcome challenges.

The ABB Ability Genix Datalyzer offers comprehensive cloud-based modular application for real-time status across a fleet of analyzers and plants. In doing so, it lowers ownership cost and reduces capital expenditure.

Tools for Decision Making

Datalyzer collects data from emissions monitoring analyzers and routed to an on-site Edge device. The Edge device sends the relevant information up to Datalyzer, which sits in the Microsoft Azure cloud. The application analyzes the data received transforming it into a concrete information for decision-making.    

The end user receives the information from Datalyzer across three different dashboard views. The first shows the fleet view, the second the plant view, and the third a more detailed analyzer view. This combination provides both an ‘at a glance’ vision of the overall emission monitoring equipment status alongside valuable detailed asset parameters. Heatmaps of the installed base, historical trends and systems diagnostics are amongst the key parameters provided.

Datalyzer also offers QAL-3 assessment and reporting, as well as event-based notifications by e-mail. QAL-3 assessment is an industry quality check for Continuous Emissions Monitoring. The live analyzer process data together with value added insights and reports are amongst the application’s key features.

Historical trends are available for up to five years, uncovering recurring patterns in the equipment performance and providing the platform for predictive maintenance. Adherence to cyber security standards prevent unauthorized access while ensuring data integrity.

Data Analytics Platform

Continuous gas analyzers such as ABB’s ACF5000 and ACF-NT analyzers are compatible with Datalyzer. Planned extensions will include Advanced Optima and Easy Line in the first quarter of 2022.

Datalyzer forms a part of the ABB Ability Genix Industrial Analytics and AI suite. The platform provides data analytics and industrial AI applications as the next generation operational intelligence and insight.
