Square D Expands Its Energy And Power Management Capabilities With The Addition Of ION Solutions
December 18, 2006

Schneider Electric today announced that it is expanding the breadth of its Square D® PowerLogic® energy and power management products in the U.S. to include ION® enterprise energy management products and solutions. As part of the PowerLogic family, ION hardware products now carry the Square D brand and PowerLogic names. Available through authorized Square D distribution channels immediately, ION products provide tools to help businesses control the cost, quality and reliability of their power. Schneider Electric purchased and integrated Power Measurement, Inc., and its ION technology into the company's PowerLogic business unit in 2005. 

"The inclusion of ION products to PowerLogic's portfolio of advanced energy and power management solutions gives energy suppliers and consumers access to the industry's broadest range of products and services designed to control the cost and quality of their energy," says Gregg Morasca, PowerLogic Sales and Marketing Director. "The union of two global leaders in enterprise energy and power management provides us with a wealth of opportunities to introduce new and existing PowerLogic customers to the outstanding quality, reliability and service synonymous with the Square D brand." 

Morasca also added that integrating both organizations and their respective product and service lines into a single range of energy and power management offerings demonstrates Schneider Electric's continuing pursuit of technological innovation as the company enhances its leadership position as a provider of energy efficient solutions. "Customer needs have remained the company's highest priority throughout the integration and re-branding process, and all the past benefits of PowerLogic and ION solutions remain," he says. 

The company's energy and power management systems provide organizations of virtually any size with monitoring, control, automation and reporting capabilities in order to lower energy costs, improve reliability and increase efficiency. A PowerLogic branded solution is designed to answer the needs of diverse applications from power quality management through energy cost control, operations management, billing support, distributed generation and many others. In addition to Web-ready smart meters and a full portfolio of software solution, Square D is also re-branding additional products and services designed uniquely for utilities and energy service providers, including innovative Instrument Transformer Services (ITS) and a hosted software solution for retail energy services.
