Schneider Electric recently launched EcoStruxure Power, a digital architecture and platform for power distribution and management in buildings. According to the company, it leverages advancements in IoT to deliver improved reliability, safety, efficiency, sustainability and connectivity for customers across multiple industries.
Schneider added that it is designed to help power professionals and building customers take advantage of new technologies, and deliver better uptime, safety and energy efficiency without compromising daily operations.
“The way we produce and consume energy has profoundly changed,” said Mohamed Shishani, EcoStruxure Power deployment leader, Schneider Electric. “This shift is driving a new era of power distribution for buildings of all sizes and in all industries.”
The product suite is made of three core layers:
*Connected Products: At the base level are connected products that collect and distribute information, from innovative connected circuit breakers to meters.
*Edge Control: The second level is comprised of solutions that enable real-time control of operations to maximize system reliability. For example, EcoStruxure Power Monitoring Expert allows tracking of real-time power conditions to help improve efficiency and reliability; and EcoStruxure Power SCADA Operation provides data-acquisition monitoring while improving the power availability of electrical distribution networks.
*Apps, Analytics and Services: At the third level are apps, analytics and services that allow customers to make informed and timely decisions to ensure reliability, reduce costs and boost efficiency. For example, EcoStruxure Asset Advisor services deliver predictive analytics to help ensure a company’s critical operations are operating safely and securely.
