Schneider Electric Announces Three Key EcoStruxture Power Products Ensuring Power Reliability, Efficiency & World Class Monitoring

EcoStruxture Power - Energy Management - Power Monitoring - Electrical System

Schneider EcoStruxure Power Monitoring Expert

Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation, today announced the latest version of:

  • Its award-winning software, EcoStruxure Power SCADA Operation (PSO)
  • EcoStruxure Power Monitoring Expert is the latest ‘edge control’ software addition to IoT-enabled EcoStruxure™ Power architecture (PME)
  • The PowerLogic ION9000 - the latest connected product in for the IoT-enabled EcoStruxure™ Power architecture and World’s most accurate meter

On the announcement of these products, Pradyumna Pandit, Vice President EcoBuildings UK and Ireland at Schneider Electric said, “As the power grid continues to evolve and becomes more dynamic, its systems and regulation has become more complex and challenging. Schneider Electric’s latest PME, PSO and PowerLogic ION9000 offerings have been designed to make it simpler to protect people and assets, keep operations running, and save time and money. If you run a large, power-critical facility, every second of downtime comes with huge business interruptions and financial losses, puts lives at risk, or can potentially damage an organisation’s reputation.”

EcoStruxure Power Monitoring Expert (PME)

On the EcoStuxture PME, Pradyumna Pandit, said “The PME provides future-proof adaptability that modern power networks need. It connects to smart devices across your electrical system, from power and energy meters, to protective relays and circuit breakers, RTUs and PLCs, VSDs, UPS, and PQ mitigation equipment. As the untapped potential energy efficiency in industry is over 50% today, this represents massive new possibilities to reduce energy costs and improve operational efficiency.”

Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure PME is the latest ‘edge control’ software addition to IoT-enabled EcoStruxure™ Power architecture. It acts as the window to the digitised power network, taking advantage of IoT connectivity and distributed intelligence. Key aspects of the product include:

  • Reinvented alarm management with smart events and alarms clustering for intuitive and powerful filtering, searching and categorisation of events and alarms
  • Graphical timeline analysis tools that easily analyse events and alarms sequence, location and potential impact
  • Designed to operate in the most demanding IT environments and compliant with IEC62443 cybersecurity standards
  • The most advanced energy visualisation and analysis tools to calculate, model, forecast and track your main energy performance indicators (EnPIs)

Power Monitoring Expert is a key element within the EcoStruxure Power platform, part of Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure architecture, the open and interoperable system architecture for building, grid, industry, and data centre customers. This latest edition of PME significantly augments its industry leading edge control offers, and is an essential platform within a connected and integrated power distribution network.

EcoStruxure Power SCADA Operation (PSO)

On Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxture PME and PSO, Pradyumna Pandit said, “PSO is engineered to help power-critical facilities like data centres, hospitals, oil and gas operations, and airports maximise their uptime. It’s a SCADA system uniquely designed for large electrical distribution applications. It has built-in architectural redundancy for the peace of mind that your network remains reliable even if a worst-case scenario occurs.”

Designed to provide real-time vision and control for timely response, this addition to the EcoStruxure Power edge control portfolio keeps demanding operations running with new levels of speed and situational awareness. PSO enables:

  • High-availability control and alarming featuring PLC time-stamped event capture
  • Breaker performance capabilities that monitor protection settings and analyse circuit breaker aging for proactive maintenance
  • Continuous thermal monitoring to avoid electrical fires using wireless busbar temperature sensors
  • Energy analysis that models and forecasts energy usage, quantifies savings, meets ISO50001 requirements, and tracks energy performance indicators as per ISO50006
  • Multi-Site Support: Enable roll-based access to one or more sites with full time zone support
  • Cybersecurity features including active directory, whitelisting, and the latest security best practices

Schneider EcoStruxure Power Monitoring ExpertPowerLogic ION9000

“The PowerLogic ION9000 is the power quality meter of the future” said Pradyumna Pandit. “It provides the future-proof adaptability that modern power networks need. It’s a precision platform, is highly customisable, and sets a new industry benchmark for accuracy. The ION9000 has a complete power quality analysis tool right out of the box.”

“The PowerLogic ION9000 is a significant addition to Schneider Electric’s industry leading connected products offers. It is a key element in the EcoStruxure Power platform, part of Schneider’s EcoStruxure architecture for building, grid, industry, and data centre customers.” He concluded.

The PowerLogic ION9000 is the newest ‘connected product’ addition to IoT-enabled EcoStruxure™ Power architecture. Its key capabilities include:

  • World’s most accurate meter, at Class 0.1S, 2X more accurate than any other meter on the market, making it the most accurate meter in existence today, unlocking significant new possibilities for energy savings
  • Cyber security ready, designed to align with modern grid cyber security policies
  • Onboard power quality analysis helps ensure safer, more reliable, more efficient power in large and critical buildings and infrastructures
  • Smart power event analysis automatically correlates related trends, events, and waveforms
  • Unique, patented ION programmability, allowing for adaptable, customised power management capabilities – protecting your investment into the future
