Schneider Electric announced the expansion of its IoT-connected PowerLogic PFC low voltage capacitor solutions to NEMA markets. Designed to enhance new or existing power management applications by responding to power factor to ensure a high performing power network, and alarms, PowerLogic PFC capacitor banks can reduce reactive energy billing penalties.
The first of its kind
PowerLogic PFC’s smart monitoring and measurement capabilities optimize performance and maintenance, allowing either on-site or remote management of your low voltage capacitor bank. Data from the PowerLogic PFC unit is sent to a gateway concentrator, which then provides the information to energy management systems or the building management system (BMS). Users can also view via the gateway’s in-built web pages. Customized e-mail alarms enable facility managers to remotely monitor functions such as temperature, harmonics, voltage, and overload, enabling better load management, improved reliability, and improved efficiency of electrical installations: The solution is perfect for new construction or retrofit applications in commercial buildings, industrial, and utility enterprises.
- Robust Modbus TCP/IP communication that is standards-compliant and reliable, with zero impact on installation and materials.
- Configurable overload and short-circuit protection.
- Adaptable and scalable capabilities so it’s simple to adapt as business needs are modified.
Ready for an EcoStruxure Power platform
PowerLogic PFC low voltage capacitor banks are the latest key elements 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. PowerLogic PFC 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.
