• Expert service bureau with recommendations and proactive resolutions
Bangalore, India – Sep 7, 2018 – Schneider Electric, the global leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, today announced the launch of EcoStruxure Asset Connect and EcoStruxure Asset Advisor- an integrated platform designed to deliver predictive analytics to secure electrical distribution through monitoring of critical connected products. EcoStruxure Asset Connect by Schneider Electric is a first of its kind wireless sensor that connects critical parameters like bus bar temperature, ambient temperature & humidity in electrical distribution system, while Ecostruxure Asset Advisor gives highly accurate and actionable insights to increase reliability & equipment life. It proactively addresses issues inside electrical distribution equipment to mitigate the risk of electrical failure.
EcoStruxure Asset Connect installs sensors (thermal, environmental) into an electrical equipment, through which plants and industries are able to capture data and monitor the health of the equipment. It reduces periodic checking and maintenance costs and protects investment by maximising the lifespan of an equipment. This approach combines a best-of-breed technological platform, EcoStruxure Asset Advisor that offers the ability to anticipate and address issues before they become critical incidents, mitigating safety risks, avoiding unplanned downtime, operational losses and expensive maintenance interventions.
Commenting on the launch, Sudhir Puthran, Vice President Services, Greater India Zone, Schneider Electric India, said, “While companies are quickly moving towards advanced maintenance models for their most valuable assets, a lot of times electrical distribution systems lag behind. Yet an electrical distribution system failure could lead to major disruptions and financial losses – in the worst case, complete plant shutdowns. Schneider’s EcoStruxure Asset Connect and Asset Advisor is created to address this critical aspect for business continuity. It not only integrates the best of IoT, but also brings great value to the businesses by providing actionable advice at the right time from a trusted partner.”
