Second generation power management system boosts cybersecurity, IoT and monitoring

November 19, 2018 // By Nick Flaherty
French power giant Schneider Electric has launched its second generation EcoStruxure management system with a boost for cybersecurity, thermal monitoring, power event analysis and microgrids.

The latest EcoStruxure Power 2.0 architecture is fully certified to ISO energy management standards and compliant to IEC cybersecurity standards and adds features make low and medium voltage power distribution simpler, safer, and farther reaching for building, industry, and data centre customers.

"All businesses today are committing to improved efficiency and uptime, while reducing risks, such as electrical fires, by meeting the latest standards and regulations," explained Philippe Delorme, Executive Vice President Building & IT Division. "As the market's most comprehensive IoT and digital power management architecture, EcoStruxure Power's frequent system releases continue to deliver more value from sensor-to-edge-to-cloud and improve our customer's energy performance."

The latest EcoStruxure Power architecture has obtained ISO50001, ISO50002 and ISO50006 certification making it the first comprehensive digital power management system to receive this internationally-recognized endorsement.  Conformity to these ISO standards, supports customers to use energy more efficiently bringing associated cost savings, through comprehensive energy data management.

The compliance with the IEC 62443-4-2 cybersecurity standard is needed for IoT applications for electrical distribution and industrial control systems.  

A fully integrated sensor-to-edge-to-cloud solution prevents electrical fires by continuously monitoring temperature rises for MV & LV power systems. This provides a more cost-effective and reliable alternative to traditional IR thermography. Trends and alerts support predictive maintenance strategies.

The event analysis tools make it easier than ever to get to the root cause faster through user-friendly interfaces. Simpler and deeper data analysis covering all devices and consolidated information improve power system operation reliability.

The latest EcoStruxure Power architecture uses EcoStruxure Microgrid Operation to manage the network, the Distributed Energy Resources (DER) and the protection systems for increased microgrid stability and efficiency. Such facilities oversee their microgrid control with EcoStruxure Power Monitoring Expert and Power SCADA Operation in both islanded or normal operating mode.
