- Switching control systems
ASL have been working with several divisions of ABB who provide power transmission solutions for major facilities and control and automation systems for water treatment plants. ASL worked with the ABB engineers to develop a 4U platform that could be configured to suit a number of different applications - the installation of multi monitor cards for control systems or intelligent serial I/O cards for down stream automation devices.
It was imperative that the systems were identical everytime as the wrong installation position of serial card made the I.P addresses change. Also the unit had to be qualified with the latest ABB software. So even a BIOS change could not be tolerated. The units also needed to be powered by 110VDC. This needed a modification to the power supply which ASL undertook. The unit was also installed near heavy switch gear and high voltage electrical gear. So EMC and vibration were critical. ASL designed a special anti-vibration mount for this project.
In addition to the customised configuration the machines were also required to reflect the global brand of ABB. This meant having the machines sprayed in the corporate colours with the ABB logo silk screened on the font panel.
