ABB Australia announces the latest release of its proven process control solution, System 800xA Minerals Library 5.1/5 with new features designed to enhance productivity in cement, mining and mineral processing industries.
ABB’s new Minerals Library Release 5.1/5 is now available with enhanced control, routing, yard and port functionalities.
Martin Knabenhans, Product Manager for Minerals Libraries at ABB explains that the new improvements will lift the automation solution to the next level by helping maintenance teams and operators benefit from optimised processes and easy fault-finding capabilities, including on-line access to plant documentation.
He adds that leading global mining and cement companies have placed their trust in System 800xA Minerals Library and the knowledge packed into it.
New Minerals Library 5.1/5 features include yard and port objects for dynamic position visualisation and collision protection of stackers, reclaimers, ship loaders and unloaders; recipe control module to handle proportion and ratio control requirements with as many components as needed; enhanced group and subgroup functions enabling easy, seamless engineering, operation and maintenance of functional groups even when distributed in different process controllers; standardised modules for challenging situations where a drive, motor, valve or actuator is controlled by more than one functional group; and improved maintenance and error control options for analogue and digital signals.
ABB’s System 800xA Minerals Library is a suite of object-oriented software control modules, which enable users in several cement and mining sites worldwide design process control and power applications in an efficient and fully-parameterised manner. Successfully operating in more than 400 industrial sites globally, the technology increases standardisation, functionality and quality of process control software over the complete lifecycle of a production facility.
