Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, has announced the release of its SmartStruxure solution designed to maximise building efficiency and reduce operating costs across the entire lifecycle of a facility. The SmartStruxure solution is made up of hardware and software that is combined with engineering, installation and services to ensure facilities are energy-efficient and effectively managed.
SmartStruxure 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, SmartStruxure solution provides seamless integration through LON, BACnet, Modbus, Web Services and Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure Web Services. In addition, it enables numerous advanced building services, such as automatic mechanical equipment analytics and building optimisation.
SmartStruxure solution is powered by StruxureWare Building Operation software, providing integrated monitoring, control and management of HVAC, energy, lighting, and other critical building systems. It has an attractive modern interface that can be personalised for individual users. The solution connects easily to other StruxureWare applications within suites developed to address the specific 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,” says Artur Socha, product manager for the Buildings business of Schneider Electric South Africa. “We can easily connect with multiple systems such as power, data centres 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.”
SmartStruxure solution represents the building management domain of expertise in the larger Schneider Electric EcoStruxure architecture. EcoStruxure architecture connects five domains of expertise – power, data centres, process and machines, building management, and physical security – within an open and flexible technology architecture that delivers significant savings on CapEx and OpEx.
