Power SCADA Operation 2020 reveals risks and opportunities, extends network and diagnostic support and offers new control capabilities.

Schneider Electric recently announced the latest version of its award-winning EcoStruxureTM software—Power SCADA Operation 2020. More than a SCADA system for power networks, the latest version is designed to work as an open platform, with high-speed control capabilities and the latest cybersecurity enhancements.

Power SCADA Operation (PSO) provides real-time vision and control for timely response, keeping demanding operations running with new levels of cybersecurity and graphics customization. PSO digitizes and simplifies your complex electrical distribution system and provides decision support that enables you to be safe, reliable, compliant and efficient.

PSO 2020 is engineered to help power-critical facilities like data centres, oil and gas operations, semiconductor, and airports maximize their uptime. It’s a SCADA system uniquely designed for large electrical distribution applications.

Recent months have shown us how important it is for organizations to have consistent and reliable power. Especially when it comes to large, power-critical facilities, every second of downtime can be detrimental to an organization, causing business interruptions, financial losses, potential reputational damage and even putting lives at risk,” says Hugo Lafontaine, VP Digital Energy, Schneider Electric Canada. “The built-in architectural redundancy within PSO 2020 offers the peace of mind that your network remains reliable even if a worst-case scenario occurs.

Primary enhancements for 2020 PSO, include:

  • Modern Graphics + Alarms: Access the system anywhere, anytime, and with any browser while complying with HTML5 web browser standards.
  • Microgrid Ready: View runtime graphics including animated electrical 1-lines modeling even the most complex multi-source electrical distribution systems via any HTML5 compliant web browser.
  • Cybersecurity Ready: Maintain optimal security through certified compliance with global cybersecurity standard ISA/IEC-62443; role-based access control via Windows Active Directory + two-factor authentication to guard against “zero-day attacks.”
  • World-Ready Translatable Software: Fully translatable runtime, design tools, and documentation.
  • Simpler Multi-site Deployments: Monitor and control multiple independent systems from single runtime client for geographically co-located customers.

An EcoStruxure Power connected offer
Power SCADA Operation is a key element in the EcoStruxure Power platform, part of Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure architecture, the open and interoperable system architecture for building, grid, industry, and data center customers. The software is a significant addition to the company’s industry leading connected products offers, and is a valued new platform within a connected and integrated power distribution network.

All Happening Live: the Eplan Virtual Fair

Rittal and EplanLast year Eplan welcomed around 1,400 attendees from 73 countries to its international Virtual Fair. Impressive figures – and that in times before such virtual formats had become the standard almost everywhere. This year the interest in new, innovative Leadership Talks, practice-oriented webcasts and worldwide chats for talking shop with other users is likely to increase again.

This year’s Eplan Virtual Fair has a full sixteen-hour programme planned. This year marks the fifth edition of the global “trade show on the net”, which has enjoyed a continually growing number of visitors from all around the world. The fair will be broadcasting, presenting and chatting live from 6.00 am to 10.00 pm (CEST).

Safety Scanner or Safety Mat? How to Choose the Right Safeguarding Device.

 

Omron Safety ScannerYou've done your risk assessment, and now it's time to implement a risk reduction strategy using engineering control measures. Since physical barriers can be costly and impractical, many manufacturers opt for what are known as presence sensing devices, a category that includes technologies like safety light curtains, safety laser scanners, and safety mats.

Because they don’t physically prevent an operator from reaching the hazard zone, presence sensing devices only work for machines that can be stopped anywhere in their cycle. Each device must be positioned far enough away from the machine that it’s extremely unlikely for anyone to be able to reach the danger area after triggering the safety response.

Pandemic Creates New Job Roles and Fosters Automation Investment

Pandemic Job RolesBy Pat McGibbon, Chief Knowledge Officer, AMT

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” This observation was made by philosopher George Santayana in 1905, but can help manufacturers today avoid mistakes in responding to the impacts of the pandemic. History shows that there are two likely outcomes of the current crisis which relate to manufacturing.

First, automation and digital manufacturing technologies will expand sooner and faster than the manufacturing technology market as a whole over the next two years. Second, this growth spurt will lead to changes in the manufacturing workforce throughout the recovery.
