Get Insights into Electrical Systems

Description

Asset Connect, a modernization solution, allows facility managers to implement their installations with smart sensors, transforming non-communicating equipment into connected assets. It arms facilities managers with insights delivered through effective monitoring of critical connections and environmental conditions such as thermal and humidity levels and reducing the probability of failure and downtime by enabling predictive maintenance. Asset Connect can be directly integrated into existing low and medium voltage substations and will be a critical tool for facilities managers across all industries, who face the mandate of predictive and efficient maintenance.

 

As electrical systems age, they are prone to the probability of failure that may result in safety risks, costly downtime and more. Integrating Asset Connect delivers insights into the quality of an electrical system that may not be apparent if facility staff are not proactively monitoring the equipment. Asset Connect allows facility managers to identify problems before they can become detrimental, thereby delivering quicker recovery time and optimized maintenance for issues that do arise.

 

Asset Connect provides facility staff with an unparallel level of data for their electrical distribution systems. It provides information at the basic alarm level – from a local substation monitoring device (PLC + HMI) – through more advanced insights, such as thermal and humidity data for local SCADA processing. In fact, continuous thermal monitoring is a proven method of detecting loose connections early, and humidity monitoring helps ventilation failure detection that can lead to moisture, ozone and partial discharge in the substation.

 

Schneider Electric’s Asset Connect will improve daily operations for facility managers by giving them peace of mind that electrical distribution systems are operating smoothly. By connecting the electrical infrastructure through Asset Connect, they will be able to address complicated contacts and receive notifications about issues that have limited access and visibility. Facility managers will have instant access to this information through SMS alerts as well as 24/7 remote access to Asset Connect features. This modernization solution can be integrated with no modification of cables and connections. Installed Asset Connect sensors can monitor the system and predict potential failure, providing a significant life extension of the existing equipment and continuity of services of up to 15 to 20 years.
