The multinational energy company presented its new range of Masterpact MTZ switches and QED2 panels, 100% Mexican and encompassing its commitment to digitize the electrical distribution.
The transformation of the business ecosystem today poses several challenges around growth and competitiveness, but also challenges that integrate solutions from the benefit of the user, the projection of a much more suitable environment to inhabit, as well as efficiency and safety at all times.
In this context, the so-called industry 4.0, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) or intelligent manufacturing, has also reconfigured each element, regardless of its dimensions of the industrial world, making value chains and production methods show an evolution Important in its history.
With the aim of advancing the constant digital transformation of energy management that enhances its quality and strength, Schneider Electric, a global leader in digitalization and automation, recently presented its new digital offer for Mexico: Masterpact MTZ and QED2, guaranteeing with this is the access to energy and technology as a basic human right, which has been the main imprint of the company.
The new range of Masterpact MTZ switches and QED2 panels from Schneider Electric contemplates the digitalization of the electrical distribution to build intelligent and safe systems, accessing new functions of energy saving and efficiency.
During his presentation, Ernesto López, vice president of the Power Products division of Schneider Electric Mexico, said that these “is not only one, but two star products that will allow us to establish a new digital standard, ready for the future and for the connected world In which we live”. These are two proudly Mexican products, produced at the Rojo Gómez plant of Schneider Electric, in Mexico City, whose design was largely developed at the company’s Design Center in Monterrey, Nuevo León, an offer that is already available in the Mexican market since July 15.
In an interview with Forbes Mexico, Ernesto López said that like any process of change, transition and transformation, it is imperative to prepare ourselves to face any scenario. “What we are trying to do in the industrial field is to generate more efficiency, by integrating ourselves into the digital world to obtain advantages of communication and at a competitive level through the internet of things. What we are looking for today is to “embed” the communication and electrical systems to provide them with this new capacity and manage multiple sites, for example: hotel chains can monitor in real time the consumption of their different hotels and with this data make analysis to know what installation is the most efficient, ”says the manager.
A switch is the heart of an electrical installation, there are switches for industrial applications, small shops, hotels, refineries, ships, platforms, automotive plants …
A digital circuit breaker
Result of years of research and development of Schneider Electric, Masterpact MTZ is the new digital circuit breaker and the heart of the electrical diagram, easy installation and configuration; an offer consistent with the value proposition of EcoStruxure Power, module of the Schneider Electric Internet of Things platform that allows data collection and management, for strategic decision making based on real-time information, projecting new energy saving thanks to the embedded Schneider Electric Class 1 measurement solutions framework.
With a robust design and three advanced protection units, users keep their systems online even in the most hostile environments, operating more sustainably and staying connected, avoiding surprises and downtime. Finally, the new range of switches is ready to monitor, configure and control electrical distribution networks from mobile devices with a mobile app, intuitive and efficient, such as a “digital screwdriver”.
For its part, QED2 is a set of known and improved technologies from Schneider Electric with a value offer based on quality, efficiency and digitization, ready for a much safer installation.
“We have to be prepared for what lies ahead. The approach is that electrical systems are connectable and that they establish communication protocols in a secure manner at all levels of industrial operation. In this sense, the effective use of these devices – in combination with better consumption habits – can save us up to 30% of energy, says the VP of the Power Products division of Schneider Electric Mexico.
6 keys to industrial operation, according to Schneider Electric:
- Continuity of energy and services
- Train everyone involved in the digital ecosystem
- Effective use of the devices
- Safer communication systems
- Connected switches
- Operator and facility protection
