EcoStruxure energy management solution
Schneider Electric has announced its EcoStruxure solution architecture, an approach which unites its expertise in power, data centres, process and machines, building control, and physical security to enable intelligent energy management solutions for users seeking to optimise energy efficiencies across multiple domains of their business.
Firstly, the solution is based on a comprehensive portfolio of purpose-specific applications in five domains including: power - complete power management solutions for facilities, plant and large sites operations that enable efficient, safe and reliable electrical distribution; data centres - APC by Schneider Electric’s InfraStruxure architecture for data centres uses a modular, scalable approach to optimise power and cooling use and mitigate inefficiencies from overbuilding; process and machines - PlantStruxure - 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; and physical security - architectures include Pelco by Schneider Electric, with access control, intrusion detection and video surveillance technology to minimise costs and efficiency losses from unplanned downtime while providing comprehensive risk analysis.
Secondly, EcoStruxure is able to connect these five domains 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.
The system provides energy visibility and real-time control of any energy usage. It is also possible, for example, to embed video surveillance in any applications, enhancing safety while cutting operating costs. Energy waste in all forms - from electricity and water to mechanical and human - can be captured and mitigated to achieve improved efficiency.
The solution is suitable for many applications including buildings, data centres, industry and infrastructure.
