Zurich, Switzerland, - ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, announced the launch of its Symphony(TM) Plus distributed control system (DCS).

With more than 6,000 systems installed worldwide, over the past 30 years, Symphony represents one of the largest installed bases of distributed control systems (DCS) in the world. Many of them are operating in the power generation and water sectors.

"With the launch of Symphony Plus, we take the Symphony success story to the next level, ushering in a new era of total plant automation that is simple, scalable, seamless and secure," said Franz-Josef Mengede, head of ABB's power generation business. "It helps balance performance objectives like asset availability, operational reliability and production efficiency with business goals like asset life extension, carbon reduction and regulatory compliance, thereby providing plant owners with an essential tool for achieving sustainable and profitable growth."

Symphony Plus meets a broad spectrum of plant configurations and applications, especially in the power and water industries. It is flexible and scalable, designed to serve the needs of small and server-less applications as well as large multi-system, multi-server architectures.
