China Mobile International scales up new data centre in Frankfurt communications line instead of multiple copper wire connections .

Key components in the new data centre are ABB ’ s ZEE600 Remote Operating Panels ( ROP ). The panels protect operator safety by enabling remote control over all four ABB UniGear ZS1 switchgear panels via a touchscreen interface mounted in a separate room .

ABB has provided electrical switchgear and control equipment to China Mobile International ( CMI ), an international telecommunications company located in 36 countries and regions , for its new data centre in Frankfurt , Germany .

The solution was delivered via electrical power distribution supplier , E + I Engineering , with the package including four mediumvoltage ( MV ) switchgear panels equipped with ABB ’ s Relion 620 series protection relays , which communicate to the digital remote operating panels ( ROP ) using IEC 61850 – the international standard for communication in electrical substations .
The solution was designed and delivered to meet CMI ’ s tight timescales , with installation and commissioning time being significantly reduced by use of fullyremote factory acceptance testing and because the digital protection and control scheme is based on a single fibre optic
UniGear ZS1 is ABB ’ s mainline switchgear for air-insulated primary distribution , manufactured worldwide with more than 500,000 panels currently installed . It is used in a variety of demanding applications allowing for high degrees of customisation to best meet customer and project-specific demands .
Importantly , the ZEE600 provides role-based access control , so that operators can only perform certain actions , according to their role and training . It has capacity for control over additional switchgear should CMI wish to extend its data centre in the future .
