Schneider Electric has announced a new addition to the StruxureWare™ software suite with the launch of StruxureWare Power Monitoring Expert for integrated energy and electrical distribution power management.

Highlights of the new software include cost allocation and bill estimation features that enable customers to analyze the direct financial impact of energy usage at a departmental or cost center level, through the implementation of user defined energy consumption hierarchies. The robust productivity kit with documentation, productivity tools, libraries and end-to-end ’how to’ guides helps project execution teams deliver custom solutions in a consistent, efficient and repeatable way. Additionally, support is available for an offline configuration mode, and improved maintenance tools empower project teams to be more productive ahead of the commissioning phase and mitigate risk.

StruxureWare Power Monitoring Expert also offers extensibility support through web services enablement. This makes it easier to integrate with other applications, like Schneider Electric’s entire StruxureWare software suite, for energy management information systems (EMIS) and sustainability management, to share real-time, historical, power quality and event data. This new software platform is also efficient at managing critical energy data in diverse environments, ranging from industrial plants to data centers.

“The Power Monitoring Expert platform delivers a richer set of features in energy costing and integrates more deeply through EcoStruxure™ Web Services with other applications. The productivity toolkit makes it easier to tailor projects to a wide range of specifications. These features will save time, increase project productivity and deliver higher user satisfaction,” said Ram Kaushik, offer manager, Schneider Electric.
