Schneider ElectricJune 25, 2018

Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, today announced the winners of its 2018 Global ALLIANCE Excellence Awards. The Global ALLIANCE Excellence Awards program is an annual competition that recognizes Schneider Electric system integrator (SI) partner companies and individuals responsible for the innovations, achievements and exceptional service that empowers industrial and infrastructure customers to turn industrial operations into profit engines for their businesses.

“Switching from technology integration to value integration is not a simple task,” said Jérôme Firmin, vice president, Strategic Marketing, Schneider Electric. “It represents a significant shift in practice and culture, both for SIs and their customers. This year’s winners exemplify the value the SI created with our offers by empowering customers to migrate away from the traditional control hierarchy to actual plant asset topology and an asset-centric architecture that controls their most critical business risks and variables, including the safety, security, efficiency, reliability, sustainability and, most crucially, the profitability of their operations in real time. Through their collaboration with Schneider Electric, these partners helped our customers ignite the industrial control profit engine of their business.”

As these awards demonstrate, SIs, industrial automation distributors, and technology and innovation partners play a key role in bringing the full benefit of Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure platform to the market. Today’s digital manufacturing environment and the industrial internet of things (IIoT) present new opportunities for data collection from smart monitoring and control devices that collect, archive and analyze critical data. To assist in the process, SIs can embed algorithms into machine controls to draw on real-time production data stored in plant historians and databases. Software tools with integrated dashboards, for example, can translate data for analysis and report on the performance of individual assets and asset sets to provide a view into the health and profitability of systems that impact entire manufacturing processes.

The awards were presented at a special celebration during Schneider Electric’s annual Global ALLIANCE Partners conference in Cannes, France. Winners of the 2018 Global ALLIANCE Excellence Awards include:

  • Global Control System Alliance Partner of the Year: Trend Ingeniería (Argentina) for excellent use of a control system architecture that managed both automation and power, an impressive technical solution.
  • Global EcoStruxure Hybrid DCS Alliance Partner of the Year: SuperTech Instrumentation Services (India) and Master Systèmes (France) for outstanding implementation of EcoStruxure Hybrid DCS and outstanding commercial effort to sell EcoStruxure Hybrid DCS.
  • Global Telemetry Alliance Partner of the Year Award Winner: Bit Control (Italy) for unique expertise in Telemetry offers, skills and knowledge in several WWW applications and multiple Telemetry projects during 2017.
  • Global EcoStruxure Partner of the Year Award Winner: Control Software Solutions (South Africa) for exceptional project implementation that covered all three layers of the EcoStruxure architecture, best use of AVEVA® Historian to develop dashboards and reports, and best-in-class Modicon™ and system platform project.
  • Certified Expert of the Year Award Winner: Siraparn Panukonpatsawe, Unity Focus, (Thailand) for highest grade in all EcoStruxure certification exam modules.
  • Business Development Award Winner: SAFEgroup (Australia) for largest business growth in industry scope.

“We thank the nominees, winners and all ALLIANCE partners for their continued collaboration and commitment to achieving outstanding value and results for our customers,” said Madiha Khalfi, ALLIANCE program director, System Integrator Channel, Schneider Electric. “Their focus on innovation and service continues to help our customers drive measurable real-time improvements in the safety, efficiency, reliability and profitability of their operations. Our SI alliance partners are critical to helping us deliver innovation at every level of our customer organizations, from integrating more intelligent and connected products to incorporating the newest digital services and applications.”

Q&A With HELU: Robotic Dress Packs

HELU Robotic Systems

Robots are an integral part of the manufacturing industry worldwide to the extent that they are indispensable. In production, robots and cobots frequently encounter each other, working and interacting side by side with humans, but also performing tasks independently.

The latest industrial robots move in a three-dimensional space and can therefore perform a wide variety of tasks. In order to ensure optimum system performance, the use of a dress pack is required to keep a robot running as frequently as possible. Regional Sales Manager Gordon Post discusses some of the questions he hears in the field about robotic cable protection systems.

Can A Cobot Help Your End-of-Line Operations?



If you’re challenged with labor issues in your packaging and palletizing area, you’re not alone.  These applications are often tedious and can lead to repetitive motion injuries. In a tight job market it’s especially difficult to fill jobs that people consider dull and strenuous. Now more than ever, companies are looking for automation solutions that will allow them to resolve labor issues and increase their flexibility to quickly adapt to market demands.

Can a cobot help your end-of-line operations?   Here are a few areas to consider:

Case Erecting - Some companies have very limited space or they have "odd ball" box sizes that can’t be erected with a traditional case erector.

How To Correctly Measure the Efficiency of a Power Supply

Efficiency of a Power Supply

Manufacturers' data sheets often only give blanket information on efficiency and power losses of their power supplies at different mains voltages or loads. Therefore, it is advisable for users to measure the efficiency of a power supply themselves. In this blog article you will learn what you should pay attention to.

Multimeter, wattmeter, or power analyzer – which is the (measurement) tool of choice? 

There are several measuring instruments which are used for the determination of efficiency. Nevertheless, the measurement tolerances and the capabilities of measuring instruments in measuring various signals (AC or DC) varies considerably.

What Does Daisy Chaining Mean for Power Supplies?


Daisy chaining refers to a wiring scheme in which several devices, such as power supplies, are connected directly in series. This type of wiring is also referred to as "looping through". The English term “Daisy Chaining” is used colloquially, since the structure is vaguely reminiscent of a daisy chain. The principle can be used both to achieve a higher total current and to transmit analog signals or digital data.

If the wiring of a power supply system is planned according to this principle, it is not wired in a star configuration. Instead, the current is looped through to the load in a linear or ring-shaped manner on one line.
