Power Manager for SmartStruxure solution provides users with actionable information to ensure the ongoing health of electrical systems and increase energy awareness. Equipped with tools to monitor electrical equipment and key capital assets, organisations can improve response times for power related issues and quickly diagnose key electrical problems. Energy managers can also continuously improve energy usage by tracking energy consumption, using this data to achieve energy conservation objectives or corporate sustainability goals. Available features of the Power Manager for SmartStruxure Solution offer include:

  • Attractive, configurable dashboards: Users can quickly and easily create dashboards customised to the data most important to their organisations.
  • Comprehensive energy usage reports: A powerful real-time reporting engine provides users with a simple interface and options to automate reports.
  • Electrical network health summaries: A simple health status view of the electrical system indicates whenever there is an electrical problem. Direct access to power meter data: Pre-engineered power equipment screens provide a comprehensive set of data on power meters, breaker trip units, and protection relays. With this access, building managers also can view real-time values, alarms, and historical data trends.
  • Power system engineer views: Single-line diagrams show animated breakers and busbars, enabling managers to quickly locate information and details related to alarms.

“The Schneider Electric Power Manager for SmartStruxure solution combines our expertise in building management systems and power management into one robust solution,” said Jixing Shen, marketing engineer for power monitoring, Schneider Electric. “Now your building personnel can effectively monitor, manage, and view energy in the same way as HVAC, lighting, and fire safety. And this level of insight can help an organisation save up to 30 percent on its annual energy consumption. It’s ideal for buildings with non-critical power requirements like commercial offices, retail or education applications, existing SmartStruxure solution sites, or even those transitioning a BMS to SmartStruxure solution."
