ABB Asset Master maintenance workplace software is said to reduce the time it takes to understand the state of plant assets-no matter which vendor they're from.

Wickliffe, OH —With an ever-increasing focus towards getting the most from existing assets, appropriate tools are needed to engineer, maintain, and optimize plant assets through their life cycle. New Asset Master software can do that for all instruments, independent of the device manufacturer or fieldbus communication protocol, according to ABB . ABB Asset Master leverages the power of ABB's System 800xA automation software to improve predictive maintenance, increase profitability through precise calibration tools, reduce training costs through a common tool for all fieldbuses, and improve project costs through a common method for device parameterization. An ABB article includes " Six-tiered approach to asset management use ."
