ABB’s Measurement & Analytics business unit announces the release of the ABB Ability™ Verification for measurement devices software product, the first multi-device verification platform.

Verification is the inspection and testing of a measurement device to establish that it is functioning within a specified permissible measurement error. Verification is typically used to meet regulatory and Quality Management System requirements.

Industrial instrumentation is robust, very reliable and designed to operate for many years with minimal maintenance. In today's competitive environment customers are looking for ways to maximize their profitability – regular product verifications is one way to ensure processes continuously operate at their peak. Verification can also increase calibration intervals saving money and reducing downtime.

ABB Ability™ Verification for measurement devices is an extensible application that connects with field devices over their applicable protocols to provide in situ verification.
It provides PASS / FAIL results together with relevant diagnostic information to a series of tests chosen by the user and run on a field device and issues a test certificate as proof of verification.

ABB Ability™ Verification is offered as a free downloadable software for a trial health indication. To access all features of the software a customer can buy licenses via the local ABB organizations. With that the user gets access to diagnostic data, value trends and a print-out of standardized verification reports.

The software can verify the current electromagnetic flowmeter portfolio like AquaMaster 4, ProcessMaster 300/500/600,  WaterMaster and Vortex/SwirlMaster product series. More to come within this year.
