With the granting of the "Industrial IT Enabled" certificate, Weidmüller's managed and unmanaged switches are among the certified industrial IT products which ABB engineers can use for real-time automation and information management solutions. Comprehensive testing has proven that these switches are totally compatible with ABB's 800xA automation architecture. The control components are mainly used within process automation but also in other industry segments.
The goal of the ABB industrial IT initiative is to set a standard for productivity and benefit. For this purpose, the various products, hardware and services from ABB and from ABB's strategic partners (including Weidmüller) are tested to see if they comply with defined industrial IT standards. A product is labelled as "Industrial IT Enabled" if it passes this test. This then provides ABB customers with a guarantee that such certified products can be used optimally in conjunction with other industrial IT products.
