Schneider Electric releases next generation building system
New version of EcoStruxure Building IoT platform includes new features for smart buildings
Schneider Electric has announced the next generation of it's EcoStruxure Building IoT platform.
EcoStruxure Building is an open end-to-end IP architecture which enables connectivity of IoT Devices for building. The platform enables edge control and collaboration between building systems and third-party systems and devices. Its apps, analytics and services layer enables advance analysis and condition-based real-time decision-making.
The new version of the platform includes features for automated maintenance, improved operations solution, controllers and sensors.
The EcoStruxure Building Advisor application automatically delivers condition-based maintenance across multiple sites to resolve up to 80% of building issues remotely, decrease unscheduled maintenance by as much as 29%, reduce energy costs by up to 30% and reduce occupant complaints on average of 33%.
EcoStruxure Building Operations 2.0 is enhanced with best-in-class cybersecurity and delivers a customized native user experience through a responsive WebStation and mobile apps to engineer once, deploy-all-devices and provide mobile access on the go. Enterprise Central supervisory server enhances the monitoring and control capability from 200+ servers to 2500+ servers for large and multi-site enterprises. The open, standards-based platform using Smart Connector framework enables systems integrators to build innovative applications and offers actionable insights through simple to set-up reporting and dashboards. It also includes additional IP integrated offers for commercial buildings including:
SmartX IP Controllers and SmartX Living Space Sensors are next generation multipurpose field controller and sensors that leverage industry standards and IP-based open protocols for 30% increase in engineering efficiency and 20% faster commissioning leveraging the eCommission mobile app.
"We are very excited about the launch of the next generation of EcoStruxure Building because it offers so many advances for both customers and partners to re-invent buildings," commented Laurent Bataille, Executive Vice President EcoBuilding Division. "It helps to extract and enhance efficiency, not only energy efficiency but integration, operational and engineering efficiency. It enhances comfort and productivity of building occupants, which is key to hiring and retaining talent. Finally, because EcoStruxure Building is scalable and future-ready with its IP capabilities, it helps building owners and developers to increase the value of their real estate for the long term."
