EcoStruxure – Innovation At Every Level


On June 28th in Mississauga, ON, Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, launched its EcoStruxure Power energy management architecture in Canada at the company’s Innovation Day in Toronto. EcoStruxure Power will give Canadian energy professionals access to more reliable, efficient power, while delivering new insights about energy usage. \

“Canadian business leaders and energy managers are looking for better solutions to reduce energy consumption and increase power availability,” said Adrian Thomas, Vice President of Building Business, Schneider Electric Canada. “EcoStruxure Power is our flexible IoT platform that integrates multiple data sources to measure, control and reduce energy usage, boost equipment performance and optimize asset usage. It is already in use in Canada and we are seeing rapid adoption because it is easily scaled to any size enterprise.”

EcoStruxure Power is part of Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure, an open and interoperable system architecture for buildings, grid, industry, and data centre customers. EcoStruxure brings together the company’s industry-leading connected products, edge control, applications, analytics and services into one connected and integrated framework for all areas of the power distribution and management chains. It enables organizations to discover new efficiencies in their operations.

EcoStruxure Power is organized around three core layers of technology innovation:

EcoStruxure™ has been deployed in more than 480,000 installations globally, with the support of more than 20,000 system integrators, connecting over 1.5 million assets.

“The growing complexity and diversity of critical data centre environments coupled with reduced budget and staff have led to a management challenge for data centre professionals,” said Dave Johnson, Executive Vice President, IT Division, Schneider Electric.

“The first step in overcoming this challenge is through a cloud-first management strategy. EcoStruxure IT provides global access and insights to data centre environments from anywhere, at any time on any device. Bringing this level of visibility and access to our customers will enable them to benchmark their entire IT ecosystem while providing trend analysis,

intelligent maintenance and more, all while reducing risks and increasing efficiency.”

Big Data and IoT to Data Centres with EcoStruxure™ IT

EcoStruxure IT is the latest addition to Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure, its IoT-enabled, plug-and-play, open architecture, which delivers end-to-end solutions in six domains of expertise – Power, IT, Building, Machine, Plant and Grid – for four end markets (Building, Data Centre, Industry and Infrastructure). EcoStruxure is driving digital transformation for Schneider Electric clients globally, enabling them to be competitive in today’s digital economy.

As a part of EcoStruxure IT, Schneider Electric continues to offer StruxureWare for Data Centres, a self-contained on-premises monitoring and operations management solution, suitable for data centre and IT deployments of all sizes and scale. Additionally, Schneider Electric offers a simplified process and tool for StruxureWare customers interested in migrating to the new EcoStruxure IT architecture.

“There are a range of factors that affect the operations of data centres in Canada, and we work closely with customers to help them identify their management needs and address them in a streamlined way,”

said David O’Reilly, Vice President and General Manager, IT Solutions Division, Schneider Electric Canada. “EcoStruxure IT simplifies how data centre environments are optimized.”

Big Data and IoT to Data Centres with EcoStruxure™ IT

The world is becoming more connected, electric, digitized, decarbonized, and decentralized. Power distribution is facing new regulations, becoming more seamless and connected. Schneider Electric has been setting the standard in air circuit breakers since 1987, first with the Masterpact™ M, and then with the groundbreaking Masterpact™ NT/NW circuit breakers. Each Masterpact™ innovation has incorporated the most advanced features and has established a legendary reputation for power uptime and protection against overloads, short circuits, and insulation faults — even in the toughest environments.

Now, Schneider Electric continues that reputation by redefining modern electrical distribution with the new EcoStruxure™ Power portfolio of digitized products that enhance connectivity, real-time operation, and smart analytics.

As power distribution changes, customers’ expectations grow, increasing the demand for solutions that enhance safety, offer greater cybersecurity, and are more reliable, efficient, and sustainable. The Masterpact™ MTZ circuit breakers prepare customers for the future of power distribution with smart connectivity, remote monitoring and easy customization via digital modules. Masterpact™ MTZ circuit breakers bring the “Future Ready” EcoStruxure Power capabilities required to build smart, dependable and sustainable power distribution systems.
