800xA for Advant

Do you know if pre-installed service for 800xA is still possible?

We are looking for redundant servers 800xA for Advant, including PU units, pre-installed with 800xA. Also 2 clients for this system.

Which are the active 800xA versions now - is it possible ver. 5.1 or 6 or both?

I believe the Västerås/Sweden based Preinstalled 800xA service has been terminated.

5.1 still ship, but I assume it will go "Classic" shortly (however, such things may change - check with a regional ABB sales representative for accurate information).

800xA for Advant Master is no big deal installing... get OS loaded, install ABB Third Party Common bundle (one button install) then use (5.1) DVD1 manual install menu to pick and choose SW until your new machines have same SW as an already existing server. PU410 units are easy; just get connectivity server with dedicated/extra NIC for link to PU410 and set it with (manual) 100 FULL DUPLEX and IP and wire up the box with crossover cable (shipped with PU410).

You can also send a request to my department for an offer for assisted SW-install): se.automation.services@se.abb.com

Many thanks Stefan. I have been many times in Vasteras during my ABB time. Unfortunately our local sales (PA) was terminated a long time ago, so I don't have an actual product update. We have worked with 800xA in the past, Advant also. So we still have a few big installations here

Do you know where to get the list of recommended (tested) servers?

Its on external web server. Try Google "abb system 800xa certified hardware"!


Got that subnet mask wrong, of course you should set to get RNRP find that interface via implicit rule
