Safety, Safety, Safety.

  • Stay at a safe distance – out of the “arc flash” zone
  • Access all drive parameters and monitoring functions without “suiting-up”
  • Access to all drive functions where drives have difficult or limited access locations
    (keeps people off ladders, cat-walks, etc.)
  • Complete back-up of parameters – electronically – can be sent by email to another “DriveTune” phone user (all done remote from the drive – no need for a “hard-wire”  connection)

 

But what about security!!!!!!

  • ABB has its own Group Cyber Security Council” that dedicates itself just to security, encryption and current and future security requirements
  • ABB has the (DSAC) Device Security Assurance Center – reviews processes and methods of connection
  • Passkey entry method of “pairing” devices  (the key only works with one connected device at any given time).  Once the connected device is out of range, the drive/connected device must be “discoverable and re-paired” with a new code.
    If a user wants a “continuous” connection – that is possible, but someone has to program the Bluetooth keypad to make it so (it is not that way as “default”)
  • Discoverability method:  Pre-shared key authentication and encryption algorithm of the Bluetooth protocol is considered acceptably strong to ensure safe wireless communication
