ABB Ability™ Symphony® Plus HR Series Control and I/O

ABB Ability™ Symphony® Plus  HR Series Control and I/O

ABB Ability™ Symphony® Plus is the new generation of ABB’s highly acclaimed

Symphony family of distributed control systems – the world’s most widely

used DCS in power generation and water management applications. In all,

there are more than 7,000 Symphony DCS installations in operation all over

the world, more than 5,000 of which are in power and water applications.

No other automation platform has such a long

field record and large global installed base as

ABB’s Symphony Plus family. For more than 35

years, the system has progressed through several

evolutionary steps. From Network 90 in 1980,

through INFI 90TM, INFI 90TM Open, and Symphony,

to Symphony Plus, the system progression has

followed ABB’s long-held policy of ‘Evolution

without obsolescence,’ ensuring that each new

generation enhances its predecessor all the while

maintaining full compatibility with them.

Symphony Plus includes a comprehensive suite

of standards-based control and I/O hardware

and software that meets your requirements

for total plant control. The suite's HR Series

(Harmony Rack) meets the past, present and

future needs of its users by protecting their

previous control investments while delivering

higher performance, reliability, and capacity.

HR Series control-based systems feature scalable,

high-performance controllers, a comprehensive

set of I/O options, fast, secure and redundant

communications, an efficient easy-to-use

engineering tool, and a state-of-the-art HMI

workplace. Newest additions to the HR Series

portfolio include an environmentally hardened

DIN-rail mounted native remote I/O option and

integration of intelligent electrical and field

devices via PROFIBUS, HART and Modbus TCP

communication protocols.

In summary, HR Series control-based solutions

lower system life cycle costs and total cost

of ownership by delivering the value needed

to remain competitive in today’s challenging

business environments: increasing reliability,

minimizing equipment downtime, improving

production yields, reducing maintenance and

support costs, reusing physical and intellectual

control and I/O investments, and adding new

products and features with ease.

Powerful, scalable control platform

HR Series controllers are the latest in a long

line of field-proven multi-function rack process

controllers, and include the BRC300, BRC400,

and the BRC410 bridge controllers (figure 3).

This scalable family of controllers, based on a

160 MHz, 32-bit Freescale Coldfire processor, can

be adapted to a broad spectrum of applications

and process requirements. HR Series controllers

feature an extensive library of more than 150

predefined control algorithms or function

codes. These functions provide the power to

easily design complex control strategies to fit

any control application, including continuous,

sequential, batch and advanced control. In

addition to standard function blocks, HR Series

controllers support C programming and batch


HR Series controller features include:

• Enhanced controller reliability

• More than 10x performance of previous

generation controllers

• Simultaneous support for all HR Series I/O,

SD Series I/O and S800 I/O subsystems

• Intelligent device integration via HART I/O

and PROFIBUS DP V0, V1, V2

• Downloadable firmware

• BRC400 / BRC410 specific enhancements:

– Extended user configuration memory


– Support for 30,000 function blocks

– Flexible online configuration capability

– Modbus TCP device integration via 100 MB

Ethernet port (BRC410 only)
