ABB Building Automation Solutions, Electrical Fixtures and Power Distribution Systems for the Aviation Sector


ABB provides smart building solutions that enhance travel experiences for passengers and optimise working environments for airport staff.

The company offers a comprehensive range of products, including intelligent building and door communication systems, as well as motion detectors and electrical distribution devices.

Intelligent automation systems for airport terminals

ABB’s building automation system (BAS) features innovative technology used to evaluate information from heating, cooling, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) solutions, as well as fire protection, security, lighting and sun-shading systems at airports.

The BAS solution facilitates streamlined and fast configurations of room automation and system architectures. It features a user-friendly human machine interface (HMI), and a decentralised IT structure to enhance interoperability and security.

Intelligent building systems can also be used to monitor electrical systems and automate standard processes, such as recording energy consumption, or billing in airport shops.

The company’s highly compatible solutions can be integrated seamlessly into a client’s existing IT networks, reducing infrastructure costs and increasing transparency.

Electrical distribution devices

ABB offers a wide range of electrical distribution devices to protect airports from overloads, ground or arc faults, and short circuits, as well as equipment for measuring electricity consumption.

A comprehensive assortment of products is available, ranging from low-voltage installations to high-voltage power distribution solutions.

System pro E Power is ABB’s main distribution switchboard solution. Offering rated currents up to 6,300A and short-circuit currents up to 120kV, the system meets electrical and mechanical specifications for airports.

Door communication solutions for entry points

Suitable for new-build and modernisation projects, ABB-Welcome’s door communication systems include outdoor and indoor video and audio stations, which can be placed at building entry points.

The devices are available with fingerprint readers, keypads and near-field communication (NFC) capabilities.

Electrical solutions for disabled airport passengers

Under its Busch-Infoline® portfolio, ABB offers accessibility solutions that allow end-users to automatically perform switching procedures, as well as receive status and alarm messages.

This range includes emergency call systems for disabled toilets, in addition to panic or call switches for public areas, and smoke and exhaust hoods.

Labels and colour-coding can be applied to ABB’s products, making them easier to operate for disabled users.

Electrical fixtures for airport interiors

ABB offers socket outlets, smoke and motion detection systems, LED lights, and room temperature and blind management controls.

The company also supplies multimedia solutions that enable data communication connectivity for a variety of devices, including smartphones and internet, Bluetooth and USB-enabled systems.

In addition, ABB’s state-of-the-art switches are available in an array of finishes and materials.

Internet-connected chargers for electric vehicles

ABB offers internet-connected chargers for electric vehicles that can be linked with a range of services, and allow clients to offer practical and efficient maintenance to customers.

The company offers chargers in single and multi-standard configurations, as well as specialised models for commercial, highway and en-route applications.

ABB offers extensive expertise in the development and installation of charging systems, which includes nationwide networks.

About ABB

ABB employs 135,000 people across more than 100 countries worldwide, developing e-mobility technology to ensure a sustainable future based on 130 years of innovation.

The company aims to make electricity available to any power outlet, and automate technologies from natural resources to final products as part of an industrial digitalisation plan.

The company’s solutions are designed to meet DIN EN ISO 9001 and ISO 50001 requirements.
