Schneider Electric Announces StruxureWare Power Monitoring Software to help Facility Managers Meet Power Management Goals
DALLAS – May 29, 2012 – Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, today announced the release of StruxureWare™ Power Monitoring 7.0 software, an open, scalable software application that tracks real-time power conditions to improve efficiency, availability, and reliability as well as maximize asset performance.
Developed from the PowerLogic ION Enterprise and System Manager software, StruxureWare Power Monitoring features an intuitive, web-based interface that allows users to monitor, analyze, and report on energy usage and power quality information, all in one integrated package. This modern interface simplifies access to power system information for novices and power experts alike, and displays power monitoring quantities beyond energy consumption. With the inclusion of multiple new libraries for commonly used real-time values, alarm views, and reports, StruxureWare Power Monitoring software saves hundreds of engineering-time hours.
Schneider Electric has built more device-type support into the software as well, including support for Micrologic E control units, Twido PLCs, Momentum PLCs, and legacy PowerLogic devices like CM2000 series circuit monitors and PM600 series power meters. With translatable event strings for alarm management and localized measurement names for the end-user interface, this solution also addresses various region-specific and language requirements.
“With this powerful presentation tool, facility managers can illustrate facility performance to key stakeholders or highlight energy consumption with tenants in the hope of driving positive changes in behavior,” said James Potach, senior vice president, Energy Solutions, Schneider Electric.
StruxureWare Power Monitoring is fully functional as a stand-alone software application. Additionally, this application will connect easily to other StruxureWare software within suites, developed to address the unique needs of key market segments. Supported by EcoStruxure™ Web Services, the suites will unify key software applications across all levels of an enterprise, providing a scalable platform, easy integration with legacy and third-party systems, and a consistent user experience. StruxureWare software delivers the right information to the right person, anytime, anywhere.
StruxureWare Power Monitoring is part of the StruxureWare software applications and suites that drive business performance while conserving enterprise resources. By implementing an EcoStruxure integrated hardware and software system architecture incorporating StruxureWare software, users can realize significant savings on CapEx and OpEx.
