New Product: Schneider Electric offers active energy management architecture from plant to plug


Product Briefing Outline: Schneider Electric is now offering an approach to create intelligent energy management systems under the EcoStruxure banner. These systems are simplified, save money, and most importantly, reduce waste by enabling a guaranteed compatibility between the management of power, white space, process and machines, building control, and security. With EcoStruxure, businesses can anticipate better results and improvements in operations through systematic energy visibility and real time control of any energy usage. 

Problem: Capacity constraints, efficiency losses due to poor system design, lack of standardisation, low adoption of renewable energy and implementation conflicts between broad and local energy policies are some of the factors that contribute to the ongoing energy obstacles that companies face.

Solution: EcoStruxure is based on a comprehensive portfolio of purpose specific applications in five domains of expertise that are essential to solve the energy equation: Power; Complete power management solutions for facilities, plant and large sites operations that enable efficient, safe and reliable electrical distribution. Datacentres; APC by Schneider Electric’s InfraStruxure architecture uses a modular, scalable approach to optimize power and cooling utilization and mitigate inefficiencies from overbuilding. Process and Machines; Automation solutions dedicated to industrial and infrastructure companies or machine builders with focus on flexibility, scalability, performance and ease of use. Building Control; Management solutions that focus on reducing installation and operational costs while enhancing end-users comfort through real time temperature, lighting and shutters control. Physical Security; Architectures include Pelco by Schneider Electric, with industry leading technology in access control, intrusion detection and video surveillance to minimize costs and efficiency losses from unplanned downtime while providing comprehensive risk analysis.

Applications: Manufacturing facilities.

Platform: EcoStruxure is able to connect the five domains of expertise within an open and flexible ecosystem of technology that relies on the use of IP and web services, allowing purpose specific applications to connect whenever needed, at the right level.

Availability: January 2010 onwards.
