Schneider Electric launches EcoStruxure platform and EcoXpert Partner Program

(From L-R): Jean Baptiste Hazard, Vice President EcoBuilding, Schneider Electric East Asia Japan; and Soo Pow Leong, Country President of Schneider Electric Malaysia, launching EcoStruxure and the EcoXpert program earlier today.

Schneider Electric today launched a new open and interoperable energy management solution platform called EcoStruxure. This platform helps clients in the buildings, grid, industry, and data center sectors by implementing integrated Internet of Things (IoT) enabled solutions.

Put simply, the EcoStruxure platform offers three layers of solutions – Connected Products, Edge Control, and Apps, Analytics and Services. To ensure the best user experience, each of these layers are interconnected and can communicate with each other.

The Connected Products layer consists mostly of sensors and controllers.

The Connected Products layer is what the majority of users will interact with, and is made out of products light and room controllers, temperature sensors and Co2 sensors, just to name a few.

The second layer, the Edge Control, is best described as a control hub that can be located on or off the premises. This is where building administrators can monitor and control various aspects of the building via the first layer. Helping to make sense of it all is the third layer, which is Apps, Analytics and Services. Here, software-based solutions help to analyze and even automate certain functions, by sending information to the first and second layers.

The Edge Control and Applications, Analytics and Services layers consist primarily of software and control systems.

To put it simply, Schneider Electric's EcoStruxure is a total IoT solution that can help a business premise save on electricity by optimizing electricity usage, and even reduce the total cost of operation by allowing predictive maintenance.

A successful implementation of the EcoStruxure is pictured here, where a patron of a hotel can control various aspects of his or her room using a tablet.
