The smart panel which was unveiled at a special launch in Abu Dhabi is equipped with advanced display screens and controls functionality through the latest automation features.
“With the UAE seeking cutting-edge technologies to connect urban infrastructure, we see a surging demand for advanced power management solutions that do not compromise on energy sustainability,” said Enrique Pastor, Vice President for Partner Projects and Industry Businesses, Gulf Countries and Pakistan, Schneider Electric.
The plug-and-play smart panel solution containing metering, control and communication options helps individuals and corporations save energy and operational expenditures, according to Pastor.
"The Smart Panel is an example of how connectivity can empower people to manage their resources optimally.”
“It also highlights our strategy of integrating operational technology (OT) that controls key industry process with information technology, which simplifies our daily lives while increasing quality of business decisions,” said Pastor
The smart panel adds value in three stages that involve automating energy consumption metering throughout the year, helping owners control low voltage incoming panels and respective block cabinet panels to effectively manage energy.
It is also embedded with an Ethernet and Modbus communication system, which demonstrates real-time data on circuit breakers and block cabinets, and also provides mobile access control round-the-clock.
The smart panel enables building owners and facilities managers to utilize advanced control functionality and easy touch-screen displays to assess analytics of energy consumption by load, by hour, and by season to achieve peak power control and minimize electricity use.
45 percent of respondents in a survey conducted by Schneider Electric consider cost of energy and contract optimization as their biggest challenge in energy management, while around 33 percent see increased energy efficiency as the most prominent benefit of Smart Panel.
