PowerTag: Schneider Electric’s smallest wireless energy sensor
Technews Industry Guide: Industrial Internet of Things & Industry 4.0, Sensors & Transducers


Schneider Electric has introduced PowerTag, its smallest wireless energy sensor, designed to enhance the monitoring of electrical assets. PowerTag is built to connect to a miniature circuit breaker, to add connectivity, and to provide building owners and facility managers with precise, powerful, and real-time data to increase the health of a facility’s strategic assets.

Designed for any type of building, the energy sensor easily monitors and measures currents, voltages, power, power factor and energy. This first of its kind connection enables greater availability of electrical assets by providing the ability to manage critical loads, leading to higher reliability and efficiency of the electrical installation. Data is sent wirelessly to a concentrator for display via in-built web pages, or provide data for larger energy management systems or BMS. Data can also be leveraged to create customised e-mail alarms to assist facility managers with remote monitoring of their assets.

“Customers are demanding new solutions to meet the critical challenges of building asset and energy management,” said James Calmeyer, vice president for buildings, Schneider Electric South Africa. “PowerTag provides the innovation to make asset and energy management simpler. The majority of circuit breakers can now be tagged, bringing electrical distribution connectivity to a new era. The tag can easily be fitted without the need for complex wiring or additional space requirements – in reality it’s a five-minute installation to get connected.”

The compact, space-saving auxiliary fits easily in new and existing distribution boards and is natively integrated into Schneider Electric’s Acti 9 Communication System to provide customers an all-in-one monitoring and control solution.
