Schneider Electric has announced enhancements to EcoStruxure Power, the digital energy management system built on market-leading connected products, edge control software and advisor services. The latest architecture is fully certified to ISO energy management standards and compliant to IEC cybersecurity standards. New features make low and medium voltage power distribution simpler, safer, and farther reaching for building, industry, and data centre customers.
“All businesses today are committing to improved efficiency and uptime, while reducing risks, such as electrical fires, by meeting the latest standards and regulations,” explained Philippe Delorme, VP Building & IT Division. “As one of the market’s comprehensive IIoT and digital power management architectures, EcoStruxure Power’s frequent system releases continue to deliver value from sensor-to-edge-to-cloud to improve overall energy performance.”
Extension of ISO certification to incorporate new depth of data management: the latest EcoStruxure Power architecture has obtained ISO 50001, ISO 50002 and ISO 50006 certification, making it a first among comprehensive digital power management systems. Conformity to these ISO standards supports customers to use energy more efficiently, bringing associated cost savings through actionable energy management data.
Compliance to IEC 62443-4-2 cybersecurity standard: today’s IIoT applications for electrical distribution and industrial control systems require IEC cybersecurity compliance. EcoStruxure Power’s edge control solutions are leading the field in incorporating IEC 62443-4-2 security assurance. Schneider Electric promotes a holistic security approach to safeguard, assess, monitor and manage customer systems.
Fire-preventative thermal monitoring applications: EcoStruxure Power’s unique, fully integrated sensor-to-edge-to-cloud solution prevents electrical fires by continuously monitoring temperature rises for MV & LV power systems. The solution is a safer, more cost-effective and reliable alternative to traditional IR thermography. Trends and alerts support predictive maintenance strategies.
Fast power event analysis: event analysis tools make it easier than ever to get to the root cause of problems through user-friendly interfaces. Simpler and deeper data analysis covering all devices and consolidated information improves power system operation reliability.
Comprehensive microgrid solutions: in the new energy landscape, microgrids are critical for facilities with intensifying requirements for resilience, sustainability and cost savings. The latest EcoStruxure Power architecture uses EcoStruxure Microgrid Operation to manage the network, the distributed energy resources (DER), and the protection systems for increased microgrid stability and efficiency. Such facilities oversee microgrid control with EcoStruxure Power Monitoring Expert and Power Scada Operation in either island or normal operating mode.
