Schneider Electric StruxureOn Service Monitors Data Centers 24/7/365

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 6.43.57 PMSchneider Electric, Andover, MA has introduced StruxureOn, a digital service that connects data center physical infrastructure assets to the Schneider Electric cloud, thus enabling the delivery of simplified and faster services.

According to the company, by leveraging real-time visibility into system performance, maintenance, and service requirements by way of a mobile app, StruxureOn’s data-driven analytics can advise of potential failures of critical equipment long before they occur and, in turn, improve the ability to service that equipment. Capabilities include:

As part of the new digital service, Schneider Electric’s Service Bureau experts are available 24/7/365 to remotely troubleshoot issues or, for situations that can’t be addressed remotely, dispatch field-service personnel to help quickly solve problems and minimize downtime. Additional capabilities, among others, include:

  • Mobile access to live data.The StruxureOn app provides an instant overview of sensor data and alarms.
  • Faster break-fix resolution time. Apersonalized regular report provides managers with an overview of batteries and UPS units within recommended lifespan and those nearing recommended age for replacing. They can also get an overview of alarms, incidents, connected assets, and an overall score of how your data center is running based on statistics and critical asset KPIs connected to benchmark other data centers.
  • Improved cyber security. A cyber-secure connection provides improved security for infrastructure devices, and machine data forms the basis of operational insights and analytics, aimed at reducing equipment maintenance costs.
  • Team chat collaboration. Managers can collaborate through chat with internal teams and Schneider Electric experts for quick resolution of a problem. Incidents are automatically created and tracked, providing easy access to real-time incident status, chat and history.

Currently available in North America, StruxureOn is expected to roll out globally on a phased basis toward the end of 2016 and into 2017. For more information, CLICK HERE.

 

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 7.13.24 PMEDITOR’S NOTE: Schneider Electric’s introduction of the new StruxureOn Digital Service for Data Centers follows closely on the heels of the company’s recent release of its Galaxy VX, a compact, highly efficient, feature-rich, three-phase uninterruptible power supply (UPS).

The latest addition to the manufacturer’s Galaxy V power-protection lineup, the easily deployed Galaxy VX seamlessly integrates into the electrical, physical and monitoring environments of large-to-hyperscale data centers, industrial operations, and other facilities. Its three efficiency-optimizing operating modes include:

  • Double Conversion Mode, which reduces switching losses using a four-level conversion technology. The reduced switching stress offers greater reliability and reduction in failure rate.
  • Eco Mode, a traditional economy mode that delivers up to 99% efficiency.
  • ECOnversion Mode, a hybrid between Eco Mode and Double Conversion Mode. ECOnversion delivers double conversion performance with up to 99% efficiency. 

The Galaxy VX UPS is available in North America through Schneider Electric and its partners. For more information on the Galaxy V portfolio of power-protection solutions, CLICK HERE.

Eaton’s Bussmann Business Simplifies Control-Fuse Selection

051514bussmannEaton and its Bussmann business have launched the Fuses Made Simple – Control Circuits program to help enhance the control fuse selection process and safety in commercial and industrial environments. According to the manufacturer, the program is incorporates a six-color-code system that helps eliminate guesswork in the selection and specification process: Each control circuit fuse is assigned a different color label based on maximum voltage rating. To choose the proper fuse, users should follow three easy steps:

  • Select the type of fuse, either time-delay for inductive loads or fast-acting for resistive loads.
  • Next, select a voltage rating (color-coded based on the maximum voltage of the fuse ranging from 32 – 600Vac) that is equal to or greater than the system voltage.
  • Finally, verify that the interrupting rating of the selected fuse is equal to or greater than the available short-circuit current.

Each fuse in the program has a new label that clearly and consistently displays critical fuse information, part number, amp rating, voltage rating and agency listings, in an easy-to-read format. To learn more, visit www.cooperbussmann.com/FMSCC.

Green Gadget: Diesel Towable Generators Meet EPA Standards

0413gadgetBaldor Generators offers two new diesel towable units that meet Interim Tier 4 EPA emissions regulations. Powered by John Deere engines, the TS500T and TS190T are both fitted with a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and particulate filter (DPF) to minimize harmful exhaust gases.

The TS500T is rated for 500 kVA / 400 kW at 480/277 and 208/120 Volt, three phase and rated for 250 kVA / 250 kW at 240/120 Volt, single phase. Its integral diesel fuel tank holds 550 gallons. 

The TS190T is rated for 186 kVA / 148 kW at 480/277 and 208/120 Volt, three phase and rated 128 kVA / 128 kW at 240/120 Volt, single phase. It incorporates a 210 gal. diesel fuel tank.

All TS mobile gensets are designed with sound-attenuated and weather-resistant enclosures to keep noise in and weather out. A lighted operator-friendly control panel features a digital controller and a main circuit breaker. Receptacles, remote starting connections and voltage reconnections along with the control panel all come standard behind pad-lockable access doors. Both units are available in a trailer-mounted or skid configuration.
