ControlIT AC 800PEC Control System

The modular controller for high-speed performance


Windows 2000 integrated, IEC 61131-3 compli-
ant engineering tool. A special add-on includes
AC 800PEC-specific functionality.
The AC 800PEC add-on provides full integra-
tion of the AC 800PEC into the ControlIT
engineering environment.
The license for the add-on is issued with the
AC 800PEC hardware.

PECView
The PECView is a PC-based commissioning and
service tool. It provides a complete set of fea-
tures for analyzing, monitoring and maintaining
Simulink applications running on an
AC 800PEC system.

neering tool for ABB’s Process Panel product
line. It provides a wide choice of operator pan-
els for all requirements that can be integrated
easily into an AC 800PEC control system, such
as:
• Easy customization of operator graphics
using a comprehensive library
• Standardized faceplate concept to minimize
configuration time. Dokman AG

Large-scale power converters and drives
must be reliable, fast and precise. That
calls for a control system with outstanding
performance, such as the AC 800PEC.
But why should the same controller not
cope with slow processes, too, such as
cooling circuits, monitoring and balance
of plant?
The AC 800PEC does it all: when it comes
to high-speed processes in an industrial
environment with all related ancillary
tasks, it is the ideal controller.

The AC 800PEC is ABBs high-end process


control system, and belongs to the ControlIT
product line.
The AC 800PEC is the optimum solution
for combining
• the high-speed control requirements
of power electronics applications
• low-speed process control tasks
usually carried out by separate
PLC units.
