Press Release: Inertial Labs and ABB Announce Integration of Inertial Labs' MRU with ABB ACS880 Winch Drives

Posted by Inertial Labs on Feb 8, 2021 3:57:42 PM
Inertial Labs Motion Reference Unit (MRU) is now fully integrated with ABB ACS880 winch drives for Offshore AHC and Towing Roll Compensation

Inertial Labs, one of the most advanced motion sensors manufacturer, continues to diversify its MRU range by integrating MODBUS TCP protocol as a standard to
communicate with ABB ACS880 winch drive

Benefit

Inertial Labs MRU-B2ABB ACS880 winch drives for offshore applications now offer embedded software for applications involving Active Heave Compensation (AHC) and Roll Compensation in Towing. This eliminates the need for costly external third-party controllers and reduces wiring time and cost. Inertial Labs MRUs were selected as partners by ABB for offshore applications use for their innovation, R&D and support. Their Graphical User Interface (GUI) is user-friendly to efficiently configure the MRU, which offers superior performance for standard and customized applications. The combination of ABB ACS880 winch drives with Inertial Labs MRU enables ease of integration and requires no engineering time to develop communications allowing the user to concentrate on the application itself.

Integration

ABB ACS880 winch drive and Inertial Labs MRU communicate over Ethernet Modbus TCP protocol with a watchdog timer for  failsafe system. Each MRU can communicate with up to two ACS880 drives in parallel for redundancy or as master/follower synchronized applications.
