Solution helps optimise energy consumption and update aging facilities
Schneider Electric has announced the release of its SmartStruxure solution designed to maximise building efficiency and reduce operating costs across the entire lifecycle of a facility.
SmartStruxure is made up of hardware and software that is combined with engineering, installation and services to ensure facilities are energy efficient and effectively managed.
The solution breaks down traditional information silos and delivers integrated building information and real-time data via web access, powerful graphics and trend visualisations, rich reports, and mobile applications to ensure buildings are running at maximum efficiency.
Built on open standards, it provides seamless integration through LON, BACnet, Modbus, Web Services and Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure Web Services. In addition, SmartStruxure enables numerous advanced building services, such as automatic mechanical equipment analytics and building optimisation.
It is powered by StruxureWare Building Operation software, providing integrated monitoring, control and management of HVAC, energy, lighting, and other critical building systems. It connects easily to other StruxureWare applications within suites, developed to address the unique needs of key market segments. Supported by EcoStruxure Web Services, the suites unify key software applications across all levels of an enterprise, providing a scalable platform.
“We are really excited about what our SmartStruxure solution is able to deliver to a broad spectrum of building stakeholders,” said Barry Coflan, senior vice president of offer management for the buildings business of Schneider Electric. “We can easily connect with multiple systems such as power, data centers and process control with StruxureWare software. Architects and specifying engineers can be confident in a truly integrated solution from a trusted business partner, and business executives and facility managers have instant access to energy and sustainability metrics, enabling them to better make decisions and control costs.”
