Schneider Electric releases EcoStruxure Power 2.0 with comprehensive ISO Certification, compliant with latest Cybersecurity Standards and protecting Critical Power Assets with Thermal Monitoring

Second generation EcoStruxure Power 2.0 system release delivers unique enhancements: ISO50001, ISO50002 and ISO50006 energy management certification and compliance to IEC 62443-4-2 cybersecurity standards

Latest digital applications for thermal monitoring, power event analysis and microgrids enable safer, more reliable, efficient and sustainable facilities 

 Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, today announced enhancements to EcoStruxure™ Power, the digital energy management system built on market-leading connected products, edge control software and advisor services. The latest EcoStruxure Power 2.0 architecture is fully certified to ISO energy management standards and compliant to IEC cyber-security standards. New features make low and medium voltage power distribution simpler, safer, and farther reaching for building, industry, and data center 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.”

Extension of ISO Certification to incorporate new depth of data management

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.

Compliance to IEC 62443-4-2 cybersecurity standard

Today’s IoT applications for electrical distribution and industrial control systems require IEC cybersecurity compliance. EcoStruxure Power’s edge control solutions are leading the field in incorporating IEC 62443-4-2 security assurance. Schneider Electric promotes a holistic security approach to safeguard, assess, monitor and manage customer systems.

Fire-preventative Thermal Monitoring applications.

EcoStruxure Power’s unique, fully integrated sensor-to-edge-to-cloud solution prevents electrical fires by continuously monitoring temperature rises for MV & LV power systems. The solution is a safer, more cost-effective and reliable alternative to traditional IR thermography. Trends and alerts support predictive maintenance strategies.

Rapid Power Events analysis

EcoStruxure Power’s 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.

Comprehensive Microgrid solutions

In the new energy landscape, microgrids are critical for facilities with intensifying requirements for resilience, sustainability, and cost savings. 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.
