ns for various industries, primarily pulp and paper, metals, minerals and mining, chemical, oil and gas, marine, pharmaceuticals and the power industry. This segment’s automation systems are used in applications, such as continuous and batch control, asset optimization, energy management and safety. They are the hubs that link instrumentation, measurement devices and systems for control and supervision of industrial processes and enable customers to integrate their production systems with their enterprise, resource and planning systems, thereby providing a link to their ordering, billing and shipping processes. This link allows customers to manage their entire manufacturing and business process based on real-time access to plant information. Additionally, it allows customers to increase production efficiency, optimize their assets and reduce environmental waste. A key element of this segment’s product offering is its System 800xA process automation platform. This product extends the capability of traditional process control systems, introducing advanced functions, such as batch management, asset optimization and field device integration which ‘plug in’ to a common user environment. The same user interface might also be used to manage components of existing multiple ABB control systems that have been installed in the market. This segment also offers a line of instrumentation and analytical products to analyze, measure and record industrial and power processes. This segment’s product offerings for the pulp and paper industries include quality control systems for pulp and paper mills, control systems, drive systems, on-line sensors, actuators and field instruments.
