What is the used of current with 800xa in standby?
I have a 800xA to be placed in intake dam on a mini power plant. With the power of one small photovoltaic plants. Because of the design of the solar system, I need data on power consumption.
One ingang with 4-20mA signal.
You can configure the signal either 2 wire mode/source mode(where power is supplied by card itself & the return signal tranmssion takes place in the same two wires) or 4 wire mode(where power to the transmitter is supplied externally by 2wires & another 2 wires are used to connect to the card as current sink.
Can you elaborate the requirement,controller & card used for configuring the signal.
you can configure the signal type in card settings based on the requirement like:
So from your question I assume you want to put one single Controller and some IO on a remote location powered by a solar panel. Is this correct ?
"800xA" Refers to an entire control system of at least one controller and one PC based server. usually there are several controllers and PC based servers. It is an expensive solution, both in Dollars and in Electricity for a "mini power plant" where the power comes from a solar panel. Pehaps what you are really looking for is an AC800M with a single Operator Panel ?
This would be a "Compact" solution using AC800M and a Process Panel. Information about these products is on the ABB web site in the
There is no such thing as "standby" mode on an AC800M or on the I/O channels. So there is no reduction in power. Power consumption will depend on how much IO you have.
For the Process Panel power consumption is between approximately 0.5 to 1.0 amps depending on the model and whether the screen is active or in standby.
For the Controllers, Product guide for the AC800M is here ->http://new.abb.com/control-systems/essential-automation/compact-product-su
Data sheets for Process Panels are here -> http://new.abb.com/control-systems/es...
For small systems in remote locations you might also want to consider using the AC500 controller and panel instead of the AC800 and Process Panel.
